The myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are clonal, hematological malignancies that include polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia and primary myelofibrosis. While most cases of MPN are sporadic in nature, a familial pattern of inheritance is well recognised. The phenotype and status of the commonly acquired JAK2 V617F, CALR exon 9 and MPL W515L/K(More)
Pyrrolo-1,5-benzoxazepine-15 (PBOX-15) is a novel microtubule depolymerization agent that induces cell cycle arrest and subsequent apoptosis in a number of cancer cell lines. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is characterized by clonal expansion of predominately nonproliferating mature B cells. Here, we present data suggesting PBOX-15 is a potential(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) follows a variable clinical course which is difficult to predict at diagnosis. We assessed somatic mutation (SHM) status, CD38 and ZAP-70 expression in 87 patients (49 male, 38 female) with stage A CLL and known cytogenetic profile to compare their role in predicting disease progression, which was assessed by the treatment(More)

Comparison of LIC obtained from biopsy, BLS and R2-MRI in iron overloaded patients with β-thalassemia, Effective use of imatinib-mesylate in the treatment of relapsed chronic myeloid leukemia after allogeneic transplantation Despite recent advances in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), allogeneic stem-cell transplan-tation (SCT) remains(More)
Several variant RARA translocations have been reported in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) of which the t(11;17)(q23;q21), which results in a ZBTB16-RARA fusion, is the most widely identified and is largely resistant to therapy with all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA). The clinical course together with the cytogenetic and molecular characterization of a case(More)

AIMS Somatic insertions/deletions in exon 9 of the calreticulin gene have been identified in patients with essential thrombocythemia and primary myelofibrosis. Over 55 mutations have been discovered, 80% of which consist of either type 1 52-bp deletion or type 2 5-bp insertion. Other mutations (types 3-5) in conjunction with types 1 and 2 account for >87%(More)
