Transplantation-associated thrombotic microangiopathy (TA-TMA) is a challenge after allogeneic hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation, considering the diagnostic uncertainties and lack of established treatment. We report a 43-year-old male patient who was diagnosed as TA-TMA after allogeneic progenitor cell transplantation for a progressive ALK(More)
Multiple induction regimens have been developed for adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). However, there have been no prospective randomized trials that directly compare these regimens. In this study, we wanted to evaluate the outcome of 50 adult ALL patients treated with BFM (i.e. Berlin-Frankfurt-Munster, n = 20) and hyper-CVAD (n = 30)(More)
INTRODUCTION Essential thrombocythemia (ET) is the most common of the myeloproliferative neoplasms. For better predicting the occurrence of thrombotic events, an International Prognostic Score of Thrombosis for ET (IPSET-Thrombosis) was recently developed. We aimed to investigate the validity of IPSET-Thrombosis in a Turkish patient cohort and to compare(More)
BACKGROUND Aspecific scoring systems are used to predict the risk of death postsurgery in patients with infective endocarditis (IE). The purpose of the present study was both to analyze the risk factors for in-hospital death, which complicates surgery for IE, and to create a mortality risk score based on the results of this analysis. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
The serum albumin (SA) level has been reported to be an independent prognostic biomarker that may serve as a surrogate representative of disease biology in patients diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). However, its prognostic ability has not been tested in a model adjusting for comorbidities. We analyzed 200 patients who were diagnosed as having(More)
