Adnan Mansoor, MD, FCPS, FRCP(C), FCAP
Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta.

Objectives:
A. Describe cell of origin (COO) based DLBCL classification
B. Outline clinical utility of such classification for therapy selection
C. Depict the available platforms to determine COO based classification in laboratory




 



Part B: Practical challenges and potential solutions

Emina Torlakovic, MD, PhD, FCAP
Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Health Authority, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Objectives:
A. Practical challenges related to immunohistochemistry based algorithms for COO based classification
B. How an optimized IHC protocol with standardized reporting structure can provide potential solutions
C. Present CAP initiatives to improve, implement, and integrate these protocols into pathology practice across Canada
