In 2003 the Fondazione Italiana Linfomi (FIL) started a clinical research program for investigating initial treatment of frail elderly patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) identified by Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA). From 2003 to 2006, 334 elderly patients underwent CGA assessment, and 99 patients were classified as frail. Frail(More)
The immune defects occurring in chronic lymphocytic leukemia are responsible for the frequent occurrence of infections and autoimmune phenomena, and may be involved in the initiation and maintenance of the malignant clone. Here, we evaluated the quantitative defects of newly produced B and T lymphocytes. The output of B and T lymphocytes from the production(More)
The usefulness of posaconazole therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is still a matter of debate. A correlation between posaconazole serum levels and breakthrough invasive fungal infections (IFI) has not been clearly demonstrated so far. We analysed posaconazole serum levels in patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) during induction therapy and correlated(More)
BACKGROUND As new biomarkers are validated and their significance in the natural history of specific diseases is established, these technologies can be rapidly transferred to clinical application. Since it has been shown that a single post-interferon-β (IFNβ) injection measurement of myxovirus-protein-A (MxA) mRNA correlates with IFNβ bioactivity in IFNβ(More)
Risk stratification in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients using prognostic parameters at diagnosis is effective, but may be significantly improved by the use of on treatment parameters which better define the actual sensitivity to therapy in the single patient. Minimal residual disease (MRD) monitoring has been demonstrated crucial for the identification(More)
"Real life" data are needed to complement published trials on the efficacy of lenalidomide in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and del(5q) and on the risk of inducing acute myeloid leukemia (AML) progression. Here, we present results of lenalidomide treatment in a consecutive, population-based series of 21 red blood cell (RBC)(More)
We have made a prophylaxis of retinal detachment resulting from massive endovitreous hemorrhage by performing a pars plana vitrectomy in rabbit eyeballs, in which we had previously injected autologous blood. Because of the opacity of the means the echografic examination has shown us the moment of intervening. The detachment of retina has taken place in the(More)
