The relationship between frequency of intake of selected indicator foods, lymphoid neoplasms, and soft tissue sarcomas was investigated in an updated case-control study conducted in Northern Italy between 1983 and 1992 on 158 incident, histologically confirmed cases of Hodgkin's disease (HD), 429 cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), 141 cases of multiple(More)
PURPOSE We report a pathologic characterization of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated systemic lymphomas, including the association of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in different categories. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-seven HIV-associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) were classified according to classic NHL classification and a recent description of(More)
Two cases of papillary cystic tumor (PCT) of the pancreas were investigated for the presence of estrogen receptors (ERs) and progesterone receptors (PgRs). Both PCT and normal pancreas are able to specifically bind 3H-estradiol. This binding almost exclusively results from the presence of high levels of type II ER, whereas type I ERs were absent or present(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the therapeutic variables correlated to outcome in 370 patients with primary CNS lymphoma. METHODS Planned treatment was radiotherapy (RT) in 98 patients, chemotherapy (CHT) in 32, RT followed by CHT in 36, and CHT followed by RT in 197 patients. High-dose methotrexate (HD-MTX; 1 to 8 g/m2) was used in 169 patients and(More)
The relationship between a history of selected medical conditions and risk of lymphomas was investigated in a hospital-based case-control study conducted in Northern Italy on 429 incident, histologically confirmed cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), 158 cases of Hodgkin's disease (HD) and 1157 controls admitted to hospitals for acute conditions. The odds(More)
Tumour Bank Networking presents a great challenge for oncological research as in order to carry out large-scale, multi-centre studies with minimal intrinsic bias, each tumour bank in the network must have some fundamental similarities and be using the same standardised and validated procedures. The European Human Frozen Tumour Tissue Bank (TuBaFrost) has(More)
CD30/Ki-1 antigen expression in 243 cases of malignant lymphomas was examined using Ber-H2 monoclonal antibody. Among them 20 cases were categorized as Ki-1 anaplastic large cell lymphoma. In two of these cases histiocyte-associated markers were also expressed. In these cases histopathologic and extensive in situ immunophenotypic analyses were used with(More)
Developing a tissue bank database has become more than just logically arranging data in tables combined with a search engine. Current demand for high quality samples and data, and the ever-changing legal and ethical regulations mean that the application must reflect TuBaFrost rules and protocols for the collection, exchange and use of tissue. To ensure(More)
The role of various life style factors, including dietary habits, in the etiology of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was investigated using data from a case-control study conducted in the northeastern part of Italy. This study was done on 208 histologically confirmed non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and 401 control subjects who were in the hospital for acute, nonimmunologic,(More)
