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)
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)
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)
Introduction: Disseminated Fusarium infection carries a very high mortality therefore prevention remains the cornerstone in management of at risk patients. This approach incorporates the use of an appropriate broad spectrum antifungal agent with activity against both yeast and filamentous fungi. We report a case of breakthrough Fusarium solani infection in(More)

Minimal residual disease negative complete response (MRD-negative CR) provides an early marker for time to treatment failure (TTF) in CLL treated with fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab (FCR). MRD was assessed after four FCR cycles (FCR4); MRD-negative CR patients discontinued treatment. Fifty-two patients (35M; 17F) were enrolled. Eighteen(More)
