The polycomb repressive complex (PRC) 2 contains 3 core proteins, EZH2, SUZ12, and EED, in which the SET (suppressor of variegation-enhancer of zeste-trithorax) domain of EZH2 mediates the histone methyltransferase activity. This induces trimethylation of lysine 27 on histone H3, regulates the expression of HOX genes, and promotes proliferation and(More)
PURPOSE We determined the effects of vorinostat (suberoylanalide hydroxamic acid) and/or MK-0457 (VX-680), an Aurora kinase inhibitor on the cultured human (HL-60, OCI-AML3, and K562) and primary acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), as well as on the murine pro-B BaF3 cells with ectopic expression of the unmutated and(More)
The mutant JAK2V617F tyrosine kinase (TK) is present in the majority of patients with BCR-ABL-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). JAK2V617F activates downstream signaling through the signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT), RAS/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), and phosphatidylinositol 3 (PI3)/AKT pathways, conferring(More)
Tumor lysis syndrome, resulting from the abrupt release of intracellular ions into the blood stream due to sudden tumor cell death, is a serious complication of chemotherapy treatment. This syndrome occurs more frequently in hematologic malignancies and lymphomas. Its incidence in solid tumors is rare, but has a high mortality rate owing to the lack of(More)
Peripheral blood progenitor cell mobilization with intermediate-dose cyclophosphamide (ID-CY) and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) has been shown to be more efficacious, albeit more toxic, than low-dose cyclophosphamide (LD-CY) mobilization regimens in patients with multiple myeloma treated with conventional therapies. However, the relative(More)
Dasatinib has been reported to potently inhibit juxtamembrane domain mutant KIT(D816V) autophosphorylation and KIT-dependent activation of down stream signaling important for cell growth and survival of neoplastic cells. Additionally, dasatinib induced apoptosis in mast cell and leukemia cell lines expressing KIT(D816V). Here, we present the first case(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine if therapeutic levels of Rituximab could be achieved in a patient with renal failure being dialyzed and if Rituximab is removed by hemodialysis. A 54-year-old man with low-grade lymphoma and renal failure on hemodialysis received 8 weekly treatments of Rituximab at 375 mg/M(2). Serum Rituximab levels were obtained(More)
Current therapies often have limited efficacy and untenable side effects when used to treat persistent incisional pain following cancer-related surgery. Lidocaine patches reduce neuropathic pain from herpes zoster but their benefits for persistent cancer-related postsurgical incisional pain remain unclear. Multicenter, double-blind, randomized, two-period(More)
BACKGROUND Flow cytometry (FC) is a commonly requested test in the workup of leukocytosis in community practices. The role of FC in chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CP-CML) is unknown. We hypothesized that finding aberrant cells with FC in CP-CML may predict early blast-phase (BP) transformation. METHODS Results for FC performed at the time of(More)
There is a wide variation in the number of CD34+ cells infused for an autologous transplantation. While the minimum number of hematopoietic stem cells for a successful transplantation has been established, there is no definite information on the optimum number or the maximum number of stem cells. It is generally agreed that a minimum dose of 2.5 x 10(6)(More)
