We investigated the relationship between the International Prognostic Scoring System of the International Working Group for Myelofibrosis Research and Treatment and the European Consensus on grading of bone marrow fibrosis (MF) in patients with primary myelofibrosis. We compared them in 196 consecutive primary myelofibrosis patients (median follow-up 45.7(More)
We reviewed a large series of patients with essential thrombocythemia diagnosed on the basis of the Polycythemia Vera Study Group criteria, and reclassified them by evaluating their major morphologic features and clinical course using the World Health Organization classification. The morphologic review of the bone marrow biopsies of 116 patients (44 males(More)
We examined 28 cases of primary bone lymphomas (PBL; stage IE) and 26 cases of systemic lymphomas involving the bone (SBL; stage IIE to IV). Two histologic types were prevalent: Diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL; 26 PBL and 21 SBL) and CD30+ anaplastic large cell lymphomas (ALCL; 1 PBL and 4 SBL). A mature B phenotype (CD45+, CD20+, CD79a+, CDw75+/-,(More)
Apoptosis has a crucial role in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), being responsible of the ineffective hematopoiesis characteristic of the disease. Apoptosis rate is elevated in “early phase” MDS, whereas it diminishes during disease progression to acute leukemia, consensually to the acquisition of independent growth features. Survivin is a member of the(More)
AIMS The authors investigated vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 1 (VEGFR-1) protein expression in a series of Philadelphia chromosome-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (Ph- MPNs) and its correlations with microvessel density (MVD) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). METHODS 83 bone marrow biopsies of Ph- MPNs patients, including(More)
It has been suggested that polycythemia vera (PV) could be preceded by an "early" phase of the disease (e-PV), in which the increase in the red cell parameters is lower than required for a PV diagnosis. In this study, we compared the clinicopathologic and molecular features of 17 patients with e-PV with those of 14 patients with essential thrombocythemia(More)
This study, performed on behalf of the Italian Registry of Thrombocythaemias (Registro Italiano Trombocitemie), aimed to test the inter-observer reproducibility of the histological parameters proposed by the WHO classification for the diagnosis of the Philadelphia chromosome-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms. A series of 103 bone marrow biopsy samples(More)
AIMS To identify molecular characteristics to hepatitis C virus (HCV)-associated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) through a comprehensive miRNAs expression profiling. METHODS In this study, miRNA profiles were obtained from 37 patients with DLBCLs and 60 patients with reactive lymph nodes, equally distributed according to HCV presence. Germinal(More)
The virtual reconstruction of the archaeological landscape is a very complex process including in a virtual ecosystem many kinds of data, activities, according to a multidisciplinary approach. This system of relations, interactions and behaviors assumes perceptive, cultural, psychological and relevance. The virtual environment and archaeological structures,(More)
