The factors involved in thymus regeneration after chemotherapy has not been sufficiently explored. This study was aimed to identify the clinical characteristics and single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the gene (IL7R) encoding IL-7Rα associated with thymus renewal after chemotherapy in Chinese Han individuals with lymphoma. The dynamics of thymic activity in(More)
Thymic hyperplasia (TH) after chemotherapy is an infrequent phenomenon in adults. This study analyzed the incidence and metabolic activity of TH on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in this population. By reviewing 471 PET/CT recordings of 211 adults with lymphoma, increased FDG uptake within an(More)
To investigate the thymic regenerative potential in adults accepting chemotherapy for lymphoma. The dynamics of thymic activity in 54 adults from baseline to 12 mo post-chemotherapy was analyzed by assessing thymic structural changes with serial computed tomography (CT) scans, and correlating these with measurements of thymic output by concurrent analysis(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prognostic value of maximum standard uptake (SUV(max)) of pretreatment ¹⁸F-FDG PET/CT scan in newly diagnosed follicular lymphoma (FL). METHODS The clinical data and detection results of ¹⁸F-FDG PET/CT scan of 30 patients with FL before treatment from November 2005 to October 2013 were analyzed retrospectively. The relation of(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the significance of 18F-FDG PET/CT in secondary hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (sHLH) patients. A total of 18 patients received 18F-FDG PET/CT scan at initial diagnosis. All patients (18/18) had at least 3 organs involved, with increased FDG metabolism in different degrees. Fifteen cases (15/18) had definite(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was to explore the use value of (18)F-FDG PET/CT in patients with extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma (ENKTL). METHODS Both PET/CT and CT images were retrospectively analyzed in 43 newly diagnosed patients with ENKTL, and the anatomical position, extent of foci, subtypes, staging and therapeutic regimen determined by both these 2 imaging(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical value of 18F-FDG PET/CT for patients with B cell lymphoma-associated hemophagocytic syndrome. METHODS The clinical characteristics, laboratory parameters and 18F-FDG PET/CT data of 23 newly diagnosed patients sufferred from B cell lymphoma-associated hemophagocytic syndrome were retrospectively analyzed. The(More)
We analyzed data from 54 newly-diagnosed persons with extra-nodal natural killer/T-cell (NK/T) lymphoma, who had a pretreatment 18F-FDG PET/CT study, to determine whether the sum of SUVmax of all the nodal and extra-nodal lesions predicted progression-free survival (PFS) and/or overall survival (OS). Three models (WB1SUVmax, WB2SUVmax, WB3SUVmax) based on(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the value of PET/CT after chemotherapy for evaluating therapeutic efficacy of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). METHODS (18)F-FDG PET/CT was performed before and after 6-8 cycles of chemotherapy in 73 newly diagnosed patients with DLBCL from September 2005 to January 2012. The results of pre-treatment PET/CT was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the PET-CT manifestation and clinical features of patients with Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia(WM) . METHODS The clinical features, laboratorial examination results and PET-CT manifestation of 12 patients with WM were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS The average age of 12 patients with WM was 63.5 years old, the most common(More)
