Though commonly used to assess response to therapy, the prognostic value of interim FDG-PET/CT in Primary Mediastinal Large B-cell Lymphoma (PMBCL) is unclear. We conducted a retrospective study on 36 consecutive patients treated at our institution for a PMBCL between 2006 and 2014. All patients with a positive interim FDG-PET/CT had undergone histological(More)
A number of 513 consecutive patients (494-haemophilia A and 19-haemophilia B) from eight haemophilia treatment centers have been investigated with Bethesda assay for the presence of factor VIII or IX inhibitors. The overall prevalence of inhibitors was 15.20%, 18.48% in severe, 5.60% in moderate and 12.24% in mild forms. The prevalence was higher than(More)

The aim of our study was to correlate "medium" dyslipidemias with cardio-vascular diseases, especially essential hypertension (EHT). We selected 488 cases using randomization, from a population of hypertensive people. About 210 cases benefited by lipidograms and risk assessment, using special diagrams. When cholesterol was 200-250 mg/dl, 72% of cases had(More)
What does obesity mean? One of the people's health markers is the nutritional steady-state, the mean ponderal equilibrium. The normal weight means the longest life expectancy assuring body weight, from all points of view. The body weight increasing means adipose tissue accumulation and the onset of obesity. Obesity quantification could be made by BMI (body(More)
UNLABELLED Lipid metabolism disorders--breast cancer risk association in postmenopausal women was searched in many studies; the HDL-cholesterol value triggered most of controversies. Some authors plead for increased breast cancer risk in overweight/obese postmenopausal women if HDL is higher while others plead for higher risk if HDL is lower then in general(More)
