Marrow cells from patients with higher-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) exhibit constitutive nuclear factor (NF)-κB activation. The proteasome inhibitor, bortezomib, has limited efficacy as a single agent in acute myeloid leukaemia. Its activity on leukaemic cell lines is potentiated by chemotherapy. We treated 43 higher-risk MDS patients with bortezomib(More)
In patients presenting with immature eosinophilic precursors it is notoriously difficult to distinguish acute eosinophilic leukaemia (EoL) from the benign idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES), based on morphological, cytochemical and immunophenotyping criteria, alone. Cytogenetic analysis or fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) can help in(More)
We treated 95 RBC transfusion dependent lower risk MDS with del 5q with Lenalidomide (10mg/day, 3 weeks/4 weeks). Median age was 70.4, median interval from diagnosis 29 months. IPSS was low in 31% and intermediate-1 in 69% patients. Del 5q was isolated, with 1 additional and >1 additional abnormality in 79%, 14%, and 6% patients, respectively. 62 (65%)(More)
Myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia (MMM) is a clonal disorder of the haematopoietic stem cell which can be associated with marrow fibrosis and/or osteosclerosis. Because bone progenitors and mature bone cells are influenced by the marrow microenvironment, cellular and tissular changes were assessed by histomorphometry in MMM. Thirteen patients, with a(More)
We performed a prospective, randomized, open, blinded end point (PROBE) study to assess the efficiency of transfusing high doses of platelets in patients with thrombocytopenia, either acute leukemia (AL) or those undergoing autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AT). Patients were randomly assigned to receive transfusions with a target dose of(More)
UNLABELLED Rapidly fatal cases of invasive fungal infections due to a fungus later identified as Saprochaete clavata were reported in France in May 2012. The objectives of this study were to determine the clonal relatedness of the isolates and to investigate possible sources of contamination. A nationwide alert was launched to collect cases.

Continuous Wilms' tumor gene (WT1) expression is a typical feature of leukemic blasts in AML, ALL, and blast crisis CML patients. It is easily detectable by a variety of RT-PCR protocols, which differ mainly in their sensitivity. The nuclear WT1 protein can be found in blasts of approximately 50-60% of acute leukemia patients at diagnosis. Conversely, WT1(More)
Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) therapies have been improved by pediatric-like approaches. However, treatment failures and relapses are common and new markers are needed to identify patients with poor prognosis in prospective trials. The p16(INK4A)/CDK4-6/pRb pathway and telomerase activity, which are implicated in cell activation and aging, were(More)
An acute myeloid leukemia was diagnosed in a 53-year-old female patient. She received an allogeneic stem cell transplant. After this transplant, some neutrophils with hyposegmented nucleus and abnormal chromatin clumping appeared in the peripheral blood, and their number gradually increased. The hypothesis of early relapse after transplant was ruled out and(More)
