CD20 is a phosphorylated protein preferentially expressed by mature B lymphocytes. CD20 is not expressed by most normal plasma cells. It is one of the most specific B-cell lineage-associated antigens used in the diagnosis of B-cell lymphomas.
No special preparation is needed for CD 20. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing CD 20. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
