The pathogenesis and etiology of Hodgkin's disease, a common human malignant lymphoma, is still unresolved. As a unique characteristic, we have identified constitutive activation of the transcription factor nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB p50-RelA in Hodgkin/Reed-Sternberg (H/RS) cells, which discriminates these neoplastic cells from most cell types studied to(More)
Sera and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 25 patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) were tested by immunofluorescence on fetal, juvenile and adult central and peripheral neuronal (CNS/PNS) tissues and on nerve biopsy material from affected patients for the presence of autoantibodies. Results were compared with control sera from normal blood donors(More)
Genetic aberrations associated with the development of extranodal high-grade large B-cell lymphoma originating in the stomach have not been fully identified yet. We analyzed 31 such lymphomas using 73 microsatellite markers for allelic imbalance and microsatellite instability. The highest frequency (42%) of loss of heterozygosity (LOH) was found on the long(More)
Expression by neoplastic thymic epithelial cells of acetylcholine-receptor (AChR) epitopes is associated with the presence of AChR autoantibodies and the development of myasthenia gravis. We studied thymic tumours from patients with and without myasthenia gravis for the expression of neurofilament epitopes by immunohistochemistry with four monoclonal(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether alexithymia is a risk factor for exacerbation in spasmodic torticollis (ST). METHODS ST patients (2 x 10) with high vs. low alexithymia scores (mean score on the 20-item Toronto Alexithymia Scale [TAS-20]=69.2 vs. 28.7) were compared on physiological, motor and subjective responses to a cognitive and an emotional laboratory(More)
Helicobacter pylori eradication is the initial treatment of choice in localised low-grade gastric MALT (mucosa-associated lymphoid-tissue)-type lymphoma. We describe the natural course of seven patients who refused further oncological treatment for persistent lymphoma after successful eradication of H pylori. Despite persistent clonality, neither lymphoma(More)
Study Design Case report. Objective This report describes the first case of a sacroiliac coalition, its clinical features, the diagnostic difficulties, and the surgical treatment chosen in this case. Methods A 33-year-old man presented to our outpatient clinics complaining of severe left-sided low back pain with an intermitted nondermatomal radiation into(More)
