High-throughput microarray technologies were used to study DNA methylation accompanied by transcriptional changes in follicular lymphoma (FL). Using Methylated CpG Island Amplification with Microarrays to study CpG Island DNA methylation in FL, we discovered widespread hypermethylation of homeobox genes and previously identified targets of polycomb(More)
Therapy-related MDS and AML are complications of intensive chemotherapy regimens. Traditionally, patients exposed to topoisomerase II inhibitors are reported to develop secondary AML with abnormalities of chromosome 11q23. We evaluated the long-term hematologic toxicity of topoisomerase II-intensive high-dose mitoxantrone-based chemotherapy in 163 newly(More)
Onconase (Onc) is a ribonuclease from amphibian oocytes that is cytostatic and cytotoxic to many tumour lines. It shows in vivo antitumour activity in mouse tumour models and is currently in Phase III clinical trials. The present study was designed to test whether cytotoxic effects of ONC can be modulated by differentiating agents. Human leukaemic HL-60 and(More)
Although an increased risk of hematologic malignancies in children with Neurofibromatosis-1 (NF-1) is well established, whether adults with NF-1 have an increased risk of such malignancies is unclear. We currently describe two adult patients with NF-1 who rapidly developed secondary myelodysplastic syndromes with abnormalities of chromosome 7 following(More)
