B-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (B-PLL) is a rare hematological disorder whose underlying oncogenic mechanisms are poorly understood. Our cytogenetic and molecular assessment of 34 patients with B-PLL revealed several disease-specific features and potential therapeutic targets. The karyotype was complex ({greater than or equal to}3 abnormalities) in 73% of the patients and highly complex (<u>&gt;</u>5 abnormalities) in 45%. The most frequent chromosomal aberrations were translocations involving <i>MYC</i> [t(<i>MYC</i>)] (62%), deletion (del)17p (38%), trisomy (tri)18 (30%), del13q (29%), tri3 (24%), tri12 (24%), and del8p (23%). Twenty-six of the 34 patients (76%) exhibit <i>MYC</i> aberration, resulting from mutually exclusive translocations or gains. Whole-exome sequencing revealed frequent mutations in <i>TP53</i>, <i>MYD88</i>, <i>BCOR</i>, <i>MYC</i>, <i>SF3B1</i>, <i>SETD2</i>, <i>CHD2</i>, <i>CXCR4</i>, and <i>BCLAF1</i> The majority of B-PLL used the <i>IGHV3</i> or <i>IGHV4</i> subgroups (89%), and displayed significantly mutated <i>IGHV</i> genes (79%). We identified three distinct cytogenetic risk groups: low-risk (no <i>MYC</i> aberration), intermediate-risk (<i>MYC</i> aberration but no del17p), and high-risk (<i>MYC</i> aberration and del17p) (p=.0006). <i>In vitro</i> drug response profiling revealed that the combination of a B-cell receptor or BCL2 inhibitor with OTX015 (a bromodomain and extra-terminal motif (BET) inhibitor targeting <i>MYC</i>) was associated with significantly lower viability of B-PLL cells harboring a t(<i>MYC</i>). We conclude that cytogenetic analysis is a useful diagnostic and prognostic tool in B-PLL. Targeting <i>MYC</i> may be a useful treatment option in this disease.

1. N/A represents cases where the average ploidy value is not available( mostly ICGC samples). For some TCGA samples where the minor allele information is not available the average ploidy value could not be calculated.

2. For TCGA samples, the ASCAT algorithm was used to calculate the average ploidy.

3. For CGP samples, the PICNIC algorithm was used to calculate the average ploidy.
