Reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) have allowed the application of transplantation to older patients and to patients with underlying medical problems. Between October, 1999, and June, 2003, 61 patients with acute leukemia or chronic myeloid leukemia received allogeneic peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) from HLA-identical(More)
Posttranslational modifications (PTMs) are defined as covalent modifications occurring in a specific protein amino acid in a time- and signal-dependent manner. Under physiological conditions, proteins are posttranslationally modified to carry out a large number of cellular events from cell signaling to DNA replication. However, an absence, deficiency, or(More)
BACKGROUND Wnt signaling induces a plethora of intracellular responses that dictate normal or abnormal cellular behavior. Abnormal WNT signaling has been related to the development of leukemogenic processes. In this regard, it is important to know the expression profile of WNT receptors in normal and malignant cells, in order to understand the WNT(More)
Maintenance of normal blood flow requires equilibrium between procoagulant and anticoagulant factors; occasionally, procoagulant activity predominates, leading to clot formation; frequently, tissue damage is the triggering factor. Hereditary factors, primary or acquired, play a role in the development of thrombosis. Primary thrombophilia is associated with(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with cancer exhibit changes in their hemostatic mechanisms. The D-dimer (D-D) is the most important subproduct of fibrinolysis, and urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) is related to invasiveness and metastases, and is overexpressed in neoplastic cells. The objective of this study was to identify in patients with hematological(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic myeloid leukemia represents 15 % of all the leukemias in adults. With the introduction of tyrosine kinase inhibitors, overall survival at 10 years is 80-90 %. The objective was to describe the epidemiology, complete cytogenetic response and major molecular response with tyrosine kinase inhibitors in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia.(More)
Thrombosis is observed in several areas of medicine. Equilibrium between pro- and anticoagulant factors is required for maintaining blood flow. Tissue injury from multiple causes may induce coagulum formation mediated by coagulation pathway activation. Tissue factor (F III) + F VIIa interacts with both platelet and endothelial cell receptors. This(More)
INTRODUCCTION Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a clonal disease characterized by a proliferation of immature cells. In immunophenotypic, cytogenetic and molecular studies, it is a heterogeneous disease with diverse manifestations and prognoses. The treatment is complex and is associated with complications during its course. PATIENTS AND METHODS A(More)
