BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE We further characterized a novel type of chimeric BCR-ABL mRNA transcript detected in a patient with Philadelphia chromosome positive (Ph+) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). DESIGN AND METHODS We used reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and sequence analysis of the fusion region of the amplified cDNA fragment.(More)
Salvage therapy of elderly patients with advanced, relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma (MM) is often limited by poor marrow reserve and multi-organ impairment. In particular, renal failure occurs in up to 50% of such patients, and this can potentially limit the therapeutic options. Both thalidomide and bortezomib have proven effective in these(More)
Vertebral fractures occur in over 60% of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM) patients and can cause pain, disability and poor quality of life. Antimyeloma therapy can lead to symptoms improvement, but these effects can take time to be perceived. Application of radiotherapy prior to peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) mobilisation can impair stem cell(More)
BACKGROUND Cisplatin-containing regimens represent the gold standard in the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer, but carboplatin is often preferred for its better toxic profile when palliation is the aim of the treatment. The synergistic effect and tolerability of carboplatin-gemcitabine combination are well known. In this phase II trial, we(More)
Autologous stem cell transplantation is considered the standard of care for multiple myeloma patients aged < 65 years with no relevant comorbidities. The addition of drugs acting both on bone marrow microenvironment and on neoplastic plasma cells has significantly increased the proportion of patients achieving a complete remission after induction therapy,(More)
Intestinal aspergillosis is an infection with a very high death rate especially in leukemic patients. Here we describe a case of a 46 years old woman with acute myeloid leukemia (LAM M5) who developed intestinal primary aspergillosis. This patient was diagnosed with LAM M5 through bone marrow aspiration and bone biopsy in March 2004. Symptoms of the disease(More)
OBJECTIVE The growth arrest and DNA damage-inducible (gadd) genes represent a family of stress-inducible genes that are coordinately regulated at transcriptional level. Gadd45, in particular, has been linked to a p53-dependent inducible network required for regulated transition from G1 to S phase of cell cycle following genotoxic insult and growth arrest(More)
Although cisplatin and etoposide seem to represent the treatment of choice in Small-Cell Lung Cancer, a lot of data exist in literature supporting both the use of anthracycline-containing regimens and the use of alternating regimens where platinum-containing regimens and anthracycline-containing regimens are alternatively used as first line in the same(More)
