LYMPHOMA from CLL

Can a FISH test determine if RITUXAN will be inhibited from attaching to B-Cell CLL with CD20 (and a few other markers) when 17p and subsequent defective tp53 is present?
In addition, can RITUXAN be effective with PCFCCL &CLL at the same time? I am 74 and have received 90 Radiation Therapy treatments on my scalp in the last 20 months.

Your question is beyond my knowledge, but you might post this question over on one of the doctors forums.  Hopefully someone with more pathology experience can answer your question.

I wish you luck with your treatments.
