PURPOSE This multicenter, randomized, open-label, phase III trial compared the efficacy and safety of decitabine with treatment choice (TC) in older patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and poor- or intermediate-risk cytogenetics. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients (N = 485) age ≥ 65 years were randomly assigned 1:1 to receive decitabine(More)
Neutrophil and platelet activation and their interactions with endothelial cells are considered central features of sepsis-induced microcirculatory alterations. However, no study has evaluated the microvascular pattern of septic shock patients with chemotherapy-induced severe cytopenia. Demographic and hemodynamic variables together with sublingual(More)
Converting paper-based engineering drawings into CAD model files is a tedious process. Therefore, automating the conversion of such drawings represents tremendous time and labor savings. We present a complete system which interprets such 2D paper-based engineering drawings, and outputs 3D models that can be displayed as wireframes. The system performs the(More)
Peripheral blood stem cells are widely used as stem cell source for allografting. Progenitor cells can be effectively mobilized into peripheral blood in majority of healthy donors with a brief administration of G-CSF. A mobilization course in 111 donors (median age 40years) was retrospectively studied and the factors influencing the efficacy of mobilization(More)
BACKGROUND Peripheral blood stem cells are an important source of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) for allogeneic transplantations. Some allogeneic donors mobilize HSCs poorly in response to the granulocyte--colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). The estimation of the mobilization result in an individual donor is difficult due to the absence of suitable(More)
Icodextrin peritoneal dialysis (PD) solution has been shown to increase interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels in PD effluent as well as leukocyte and mesothelial cell count. Mesothelial cells release cancer antigen 125 (CA125), which is used as a marker of mesothelial cell mass. This 1-year prospective study was designed to compare peritoneal effluent cell(More)
Elderly patients with hematological malignancies are often reliant on allogeneic transplantations. Older family relatives are increasingly involved in utilization as PBSC donors. We analyzed the mobilization results from 103 donors of age ≥55 years in comparison with 121 younger donors of age <55 years. The median CD34+ count in peripheral blood on day +5(More)
BACKGROUND Insufficient future liver remnant volume (FLRV) is the main cause of low resectability of liver metastases from colorectal cancer (CLMs). One option for enhancing FLVR growth is the use of portal vein embolisation (PVE) with the application of autologous haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). PATIENTS AND METHODS PVE with the application of HSCs was(More)
