OBJECTIVE To explore the efficacies and safety of combined treatment of remifemin and paroxetine for perimenopausal depression. METHODS A total of 120 patients with perimenopausal depression were digital randomly divided into the treatment and control groups (n = 60 each). The treatment group received oral remifemin one tablet twice daily and paroxetine(More)
BACKGROUND Because procarbazine is not available in the mainland of China, a risk-adapted chemotherapy without the drug was adopted for children with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) in two tertiary referral centers for childhood cancer in Shanghai. The objective of the present study was to obtain the results comparable with those of previous studies. METHODS From(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the main causes of deaths and the influencing factors in children with malignant tumors in the hospital, explore the possible way to improve the treatment. METHODS Clinical data of 84 patients with malignant tumors who died during hospitalization in the Department of Hematology/Oncology from June 1999 to December 2008 were(More)
OBJECTIVE This pilot study focused on whether flow cytometry (FCM) detection of minimal residual disease in bone marrow (BM) could predict the outcome of patients with advanced neuroblastoma (NB). PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty-seven stage 4 NB patients with BM infiltration were enrolled in this study. All of them received NB-2001 protocol. BM samples were(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether neuroblastoma (NB) minimal residual disease (MRD) in bone marrow (BM) detected by flow cytometry could predict prognosis and whether tumor cell purging by CD34(+) cell selection prior to transplantation will impact on disease-free survival. METHODS NB MRD in BM was evaluated by flow cytometry with(More)
BACKGROUND Most cavernous hemangiomas in the spleen are small lesions that are found incidentally and patients usually present with no symptoms. Imaging is able to detect the lesions that are considered as diagnostic evidence. But some patients with diffuse cavernous hemangioma may present with anemia, thrombocytopenia, coagulopathy and bleeding, which(More)
OBJECTIVE Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) presenting as mediastinal mass is usually progressive and may cause severe respiratory distress and death. This study aimed to summarize the clinical features and prognosis of NHL arising from mediastinum. METHODS Totally 36 patients with NHL arising from mediastinum reported herein were diagnosed between 1999 and(More)
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia includes T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL). In children, T-ALL usually has a worse prognosis than B-ALL, although childhood T-ALL prognoses have improved remarkably. The varying outcomes among T-ALL cases suggest that an unrecognized biological heterogeneity may(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantatation in children with advanced solid tumors. METHODS Bone marrow was collected from the anterior crista of iliac in both sides in 13 cases while peripheral mononuclear cell was harvested with CS-3000 cell separator in other 15 patients after G-CSF mobilization. Since(More)
OBJECTIVE To reduce the risk of infection during the induction therapy while to ensure remission rates, and to evaluate the protocol ALL-2005. METHODS The minimal residual disease (MRD) was detected by flow cytometry on day 35 and 55 of induction therapy. The efficacy of induction and the clinic grouping were evaluated by MRD level. From May 1, 2005 to(More)
