By conventional metaphase and SNP array cytogenetics we serially studied a patient affected by high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), documenting the conversion from partial trisomy 8q to trisomy 8 and partial tetrasomy 8q during progression to acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Moreover, the serial application of high resolution genomic array analysis at(More)

The discovery of all-trans-retinoic acid has changed the course of APL treatment by reducing the onset of DIC and inducing a complete and durable(More)
The bone marrow quantitative distribution of the two main T-lymphocyte subsets, recognizable by the "high" and "low-affinity" E-rosette forming cell technique, according to West, was evaluated in ten untreated myeloma patients and twelve normal controls. It was observed, within a normal total T-lymphoid cell count, a significant predominance of the(More)
