Catheter-related thrombosis (CRT) is a serious complication in hematological patients, but the risk factors for its occurrence are not well established. The study objectives were to estimate the incidence of CRT and to identify the risk factors for developing CRT in hematological patients. In a prospective setting, 104 consecutive patients with 200(More)
AIMS Randomized trial to assess change in left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) and myocardial perfusion in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) of anterior wall treated with bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs), compared with control group-from baseline in the acute phase up to 12 months of follow-up. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty-five patients were(More)
This report is a retrospective analysis of 65 patients with peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL), who underwent high-dose therapy and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (autoHCT) as a consolidation of first response achieved with either induction or salvage chemotherapy. We intended to determine the prognostic factors that influenced outcome(More)
Development of modern proteomic methods in recent years has opened also new perspectives in the identification of new biomarkers which ensure more effective diagnosis, treatment monitoring and prediction of therapeutic outcome. We evaluated usefulness of comparative proteomics (MALDI-TOF) in two subtypes of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), M1 and M2, according(More)
Spontaneous remission (SR) of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in adults is observed very rarely. To date, about 100 cases have been presented in the literature. To our best knowledge, we describe the first adult Polish patient suffering from acute myelomonocytic leukemia (48, XY, +13, +21/46, XY), in whom after supportive therapy, including non-irradiated,(More)
Despite the well-defined role of autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (autoHCT) in the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), relapse remains the main cause of transplant failure. We retrospectively evaluated long-term outcome and prognostic factors affecting survival of 132 patients with refractory (n = 89)(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to determine the incidence of second malignancies among patients with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) treated with autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (ASCT) following a modified BEAM (BCNU, etoposide, cytarabine, melphalan, dexamethasone) regimen between 1992 and 2012 at our department. We also intended to(More)
PNH is a rare clonal disorder of hematopoietic stem cells, therefore all blood cells lineages are involved. The main feature is an increased sensitivity of erythrocytes to complement-mediated cell lysis due to deficiency of membrane-bound GPI (glycosylphosphatidylinositol)-anchored proteins which normally function as inhibitors of reactive hemolysis. In the(More)
