Post-Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder
Associated Genetic Biomarkers
NCI Definition: Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a polyclonal (benign) or clonal (malignant) proliferation of lymphoid cells that develops as a consequence of immunosuppression in a recipient of a solid organ or bone marrow allograft. PTLDs comprise a spectrum ranging from early, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-driven polyclonal lymphoid proliferations to EBV-positive or EBV- negative lymphomas of predominantly B-cell or less often T-cell type. (WHO, 2001) 
There are 10 clinical trials for post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder, of which 7 are open and 3 are completed or closed. Of the trials that contain post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder as an inclusion criterion, 1 is early phase 1 (1 open), 1 is phase 1 (1 open), 6 are phase 2 (3 open), and 2 are phase 3 (2 open).
EBV, MS4A1, and B-lymphocyte are the most frequent gene inclusion criteria for post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder clinical trials .
Rituximab, bendamustine, and tabelecleucel are the most common interventions in post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder clinical trials.
