PURPOSE The recognition of a number of leukemia-specific cytogenetic abnormalities and their role as independent prognostic factors have provided considerable insights into leukemia pathogenesis and have paved the way to adopt risk-adapted treatment. However, approximately 50% of newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have a normal karyotype. There(More)
Aurora kinases are key regulators of chromosome segregation during mitosis. We have previously shown by microarray analysis of primary lung carcinomas and matched normal tissue that AURKB (22 out of 37) and AURKA (15 out of 37) transcripts are frequently over-represented in these tumours. We now confirm these observations in a second series of 44 carcinomas(More)
S100A2 gene products were shown to be frequently and dramatically over-represented in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) lesions over normal tissue by microarray analysis. We have now analysed an independent series of NSCLC tumours and multiple matched normal bronchial epithelial sites by RT-PCR and immunohistochemistry to investigate: whether this(More)
CCAAT/enhancer binding protein-α (CEBPA) mutations in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with a normal karyotype (NK) confer favorable prognosis, whereas NK-AML patients per se are of intermediate risk. This suggests that blocked CEBPA function characterizes NK-AML with favorable outcome. We determined the prognostic significance of CEBPA DNA binding(More)
BACKGROUND High-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell transplantation is a cornerstone in the first-line treatment of multiple myeloma patients. However, only few factors have been identified affecting the outcome in such patients. We hypothesised that varying levels of mobilised CD34+ cells confer prognostic information in myeloma patients undergoing(More)
