Dissertation: Classical Hodgkin lymphoma in Chinese and Dutch populations: epidemiology, EBV and HLA associations

Promotor(s): prof. A. van den Berg, prof. S. Poppema

Faculty: Medical Sciences

 

In this thesis we performed a combined epidemiologic and genetic study on classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) in relation to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) status. In the Chinese population the age distribution was significantly different as compared to the Dutch population, especially for the EBV-positive Group. In the Chinese population EBV-associated cHL is more frequent in children.
