BACKGROUND Sinonasal natural killer (NK)/T-cell or T-cell lymphoma behaves quite differently from other lymphomas. The objective of this study was to investigate clinical features, treatment outcomes, and failure patterns in patients with this type of sinonasal lymphoma. METHODS From September, 1977 to December, 2000, 77 patients with sinonasal NK/T-cell(More)
The aim of this study is to validate the clinical utility of the flow cytometric scoring system (FCSS), quantifying phenotypic aberrancies in the myelomonocytic lineages, in the diagnosis and prognosis for conventionally treated myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) patients. The bone marrow samples from 56 consecutive newly diagnosed MDS patients were(More)
UNLABELLED Lamivudine is effective to control hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation in HBV-carrying cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy, but the optimal treatment protocol remains undetermined. In this study, HBV carriers with newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) who underwent chemotherapy were randomized to either prophylactic (P) or(More)
Kimura's disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder that occurs mainly in Asian patients. Most imaging studies focus on the loco-regional involvement of this disorder. Images of the whole body fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET) scan have not been reported in the literature before. The possibility of lymphoid clonality(More)
The rare recurrent translocation of (8;9)(p22;p24) with PCM1-JAK2 fusion was recently characterized in diverse hematological malignancies. Most of them are atypical chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) or other myeloproliferative disorders (MPD), and are predominantly in the male. We report a female patient with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) initially presenting(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Our previous studies showed that high-dose tamoxifen may improve the therapeutic efficacy of doxorubicin (HTD regimen) in hepatocellular carcinoma. Interferon-alpha, either as a single-agent treatment or as a biochemical modulator, has also been reported to be effective in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. In this study, we sought(More)
The relationship between the features of bone marrow donor and the quality of marrow harvest has been unclear because most of bone marrow registries have multiple collection centers with somewhat different harvest procedures. We are able to address this issue for Tzu Chi General Hospital is the only collection center affiliated with Tzu Chi Taiwan Bone(More)
The revised International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS-R) was recently developed to better assess the clinical outcome of adult patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). In this study, we aimed to investigate the prognostic impact of this new risk model on 555 MDS patients in Taiwan. Generally, the IPSS-R could discriminate MDS patients regarding(More)
Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) with central nervous system (CNS) involvement in adults is uncommon, and studies of this subject are scant. We conducted a retrospective study to investigate the clinical aspects, cytogenetic abnormalities, molecular gene mutations and outcomes of adult AML patients with CNS involvement. Three hundred and ninety-five patients(More)
