PURPOSE Characteristics and outcome of 108 patients with mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma were analyzed according to initial location of the lymphoma, within or outside of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred eight patients with MALT lymphoma were studied. Fifty-five patients (51%) had GI involvement and 53(More)
To improve the diagnosis of invasive aspergillosis (IA), we retrospectively compared competitive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and sandwich ELISA for detection of serum galactomannan (GM) antigen. We studied 281 serum samples collected weekly during the period at risk for IA from 41 selected hematology patients. Twenty-two patients had confirmed,(More)
PURPOSE We sought to describe the infections that occur after large-dose chemotherapy, which was followed by autologous peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation, and to determine their risk factors. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the occurrence and the characteristics of infections in 277 consecutive patients who received(More)
We report seven cases of particular cutaneous tumors selected from the register of the French Study Group on Cutaneous Lymphomas. The patients (three men, four women) were aged 37-86 years. They initially presented with cutaneous nodules or papules. Three cases presented with regional lymph nodes. Stagings were negative, except for one patient with bone(More)
BACKGROUND Reverse seroconversion to hepatitis B virus (HBV), i.e., HBV reactivation in patients with pretransplant antibodies to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs) and to hepatitis B core antigen (anti-HBc), is rarely re-ported after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. METHODS To determine this risk, we studied clinical outcome and serological(More)
A 59-year-old woman with active tobacco use presented with progressive intractable nausea and vomiting since 3 months, followed by progressive severe gait unsteadiness and uncoordinated limb movements.

Conventional hematopoietic stem cell cryopreservation methods use a DMSO concentration of 10%. However, cells manipulated ex vivo may require more refined freezing protocols adapted to the specific cell suspension. In this retrospective study, we evaluated the results obtained with CD34+ cells purified from peripheral blood of 39 patients on the CEPRATE SC(More)
