The yearly MetaSystems Distributor Meeting (DM), brought into life in 2002 as a platform to gather all international partners of MetaSystems and other members of the global MetaSystems family, just ended last week. The DM is being organized in turns by MetaSystems Headquarters, MetaSystems USA (MGI), and MetaSystems Asia. Since MGI is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2018 they decided to choose a special location: Nassau, The Bahamas!

The mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma with an aggressive clinical course. It is genetically characterized by t(11;14)(q13;q32) and is present in about 95% of MCL patients. By lower frequency, t(11;14) is also detectable in B-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, myelomas and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The translocation induces overexpression of CCND1 which is normally not detected in B lymphocytes. CCND1 is a major player in cell cycle regulation and involved in the G1/S-phase transition. The oncogenic potential of CCDN1 overexpression is related to its role in the cell cycle but also to other, non-cell cycle-related mechanisms as increased genomic instability and cell survival. t(11;14) is considered as a primary event, often followed by secondary chromosome alterations.
In multiple myeloma (MM), t(11;14) is the most common translocation, detectable in about 15-20% of all MM patients by FISH. Conventional cytogenetics has a much lower sensitivity, detecting t(11;14) in about 5% of MM patients. MM t(11;14) patients do have a relatively favorable outcome compared to other recurrent IGH translocations.
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas (NHL)

Two green (2G) and two orange (2O) signals.
Aberrant Cell (typical results):
One green (1G), one orange (1O), and two green-orange colocalization/fusion signals (2GO) resulting from a reciprocal translocation between the relevant loci.
