Transplantation of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with grafts from related haploidentical donors has been shown to result in a potent graft-versus-leukemia effect. This effect is mediated by NK cells because of the lack of activation of inhibitory killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIRs) which recognize HLA-Bw4 and HLA-C alleles. However,(More)
Imaging with technetium-99m sestamibi offers a non-invasive approach to detect the presence of functional P-glycoprotein (Pgp), one of the major causes of multidrug resistance, in human malignancies. A clinical role for Pgp has been suggested in the subpopulation of primary neuroblastoma without amplification of the proto-oncogene MYCN. We wanted to(More)
Case We report a case of simultaneous methemoglobinemia and hemolytic anemia, probably related to the use of rasburicase, in a child starting treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In addition, the patient developed symptoms of pancreatitis. All complications resolved after 3 days of supportive therapy. Conclusion Although usually well tolerated(More)
We report on the outcome of children with advanced primary myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) transplanted from an HLA-matched sibling (MSD) or an unrelated donor (UD) following a preparative regimen with busulfan, cyclophosphamide and melphalan. Ninety-seven patients with refractory anemia with excess blasts (RAEB, n=53), RAEB in transformation (RAEB-T, n=29)(More)
Overwhelming evidence indicates that long non-coding RNAs have essential roles in tumorigenesis. Nevertheless, their role in the molecular pathogenesis of pediatric B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia has not been extensively explored. Here, we conducted a comprehensive analysis of the long non-coding RNA transcriptome in ETV6/RUNX1-positive(More)
Recently, we and others described a new chromosomal rearrangement, that is, inv(7)(p15q34) and t(7;7)(p15;q34) involving the T-cell receptor beta (TCRbeta) (7q34) and the HOXA gene locus (7p15) in 5% of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) patients leading to transcriptional activation of especially HOXA10. To further address the clinical,(More)
We present a patient with thalassemia major who developed a gastric ulcer, probably related to the use of deferasirox. Although gastric ulcer is mentioned as infrequent adverse event in the scientific product information of deferasirox, in our current knowledge, this is the first case-report on this adverse drug reaction. The severity of this event(More)
