Three new studies have found that the presence of B cells in tertiary lymphoid structures in tumors is associated with a favorable response to immunotherapy.

Researchers at BostonGene and Weill Cornell Medicine hope their approach may provide a more complete and precise characterization of diffuse large B-cell lymphomas.

Currently available under a soft launch, the tool can provide information about the prevalence of cancer risk mutations based on patients' demographics.

An analysis found a 14 percent prevalence of germline cancer risk mutations and a 57 percent prevalence of variants of unknown significance.

The researchers believe their findings could be used to change how patients' risk for breast cancer, colon cancer, or heart disease is calculated.
