UNLABELLED Multiple myeloma (MM) therapy should be tailored according to patient characteristics although we do not know which ones to use. By studying the characteristics of 266 real-life patients, we found performance status (PS) and Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) as factors affecting survival of MM patients regardless of their disease characteristics.(More)
In newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM), three/four-drug combinations as induction therapy seem to be more effective compared with two-drug associations in terms of response rate and duration of remission. Moreover, there is an emergent body of evidences that consolidation/maintenance therapy improves the quality of response and remission duration.(More)
OBJECTIVES With the aim to address the issue whether high-dose therapy (HDT) is required after new drugs combinations to improve outcome of elderly newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM) patients, we compared the toxicity and the outcome of ThaDD plus maintenance to those of ThaDD plus HDT-autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). METHODS Sixty-two(More)
Maintenance therapy was explored in multiple myeloma (MM) patients after conventional thalidomide, dexamethasone and pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (ThaDD). Patients with newly or relapsed MM obtaining at least minor response after 6 ThaDD courses, were randomised to receive alpha-interferon (IFN) 3 MU 3 times a week or thalidomide 100 mg daily until(More)
The literature provides scant data concerning infectious complications and their effect on the outcome of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) treated with new drug combinations. Despite no substantial myelotoxic effect, thalidomide increases the risk of severe infections in patients with MM. We studied 202 patients who received regimens containing(More)
In the spectrum of diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL), both T-cell/histiocyte-rich large B-cell lymphoma (TCHRBCL) and most lymphomatoid granulomatosis (LG) cases are characterized by the relative rarity of the neoplastic B-cell population, with respect to the overwhelming non-neoplastic counterpart of T cells or histiocytes. Here we report a case of(More)

The Central African Republic has been strongly affected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic. Although itself sparsely populated, the republic borders five other African countries and is crossed by the trans-African highway, which connects West and Central Africa with East Africa (Figure 1). Wide genetic variation reported among HIV-1 subtypes(More)
