The Prospective Oral Mucositis Audit was an observational study in 197 patients with multiple myeloma (MM) or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) undergoing, respectively, high-dose melphalan or BEAM chemotherapy and autologous SCT at 25 European centres. We evaluated the relationship between severe oral mucositis (SOM; WHO Oral Toxicity Scale grade 3-4) and local(More)
We report 13 multiple myeloma (MM) or lymphoma patients who were failing PBSC mobilization after disease-specific chemotherapy and granulocyte-CSF (G-CSF), and received plerixafor to successfully collect PBSCs. Patients were considered poor mobilizers when the concentration of PB CD34(+) cells was always lower than 10 cells/μL, during the recovery phase(More)
We describe 20 patients with myeloma and 1 with primary amyloidosis from 15 centres, all with advanced renal failure, most of whom had PBSC mobilised using plerixafor following previous failed mobilisation by conventional means (plerixafor used up-front for 4 patients). For 15 patients, the plerixafor dose was reduced to 0.16 mg/kg/day, with a subsequent(More)
The authors studied the stereotyped movements presented by a group of 20 autistic children, evaluating the patient observation protocols according to a psychodynamic model of autism. The stereotyped movements were analysed considering ten different parameters: type, site, morphology, frequency, association, complexity, active sensory channel, trigger event,(More)
AML patients (total 129; median age =50 years; range 16-72) in first CR received BU and melphalan (BU/Mel) as conditioning regimen before auto-SCT. In all, 82 patients (63.6%) received PBSCs and 47 patients (36.4%) received BM cells. The distribution of cytogenetic categories was conventionally defined as favorable (15.5%), intermediate (60.1%) and(More)
