The Origin of the Reed-Sternberg Cell

  • D. B. Jones
Part of the Immunology and Medicine Series book series (IMME, volume 15)


The 156 years which have elapsed since Thomas Hodgkin first published his paper on some morbid appearances of the lymph nodes1 have seen major advances in our ability to investigate human cell types. From the development of the most basic techniques in histopathology we have advanced to a stage where genes, or segments of genes responsible for a particular phenotypic expression can be examined in minute detail. Despite considerable effort over this period of time the disease which today bears the name of Thomas Hodgkin remains poorly understood.
