In an attempt to rationalize the use of therapy in acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) in elderly patients, 69 cases of primary AML in patients older than 60 years of age were reviewed retrospectively. Therapy was empirical and 12 patients received supportive care (SC) only, 35 received aggressive chemotherapy (AC), and 22 received low-dose cytosine(More)
 We describe a patient with AML with a monocytic component who developed a T-lymphoblastic lymphoma. Lymphoma was diagnosed 9 months following AML diagnosis. To our knowledge, this is the first report of phenotypically documented T-cell lymphoma following AML. The questions relating to the pathogenesis of the two malignancies are discussed.
INTRODUCTION Structural rearrangements of chromosome 3q have been described in approximately 2% of patients with acute myeloid leukemia. Breakpoints are mainly located in the 3q21 and 3q26 regions but may occur elsewhere on chromosome 3. To determine the relationship between these breakpoints and the hematological parameters, including outcome of these(More)
Bone marrow aspirate was performed on day 4 of a 7-day induction chemotherapy regimen using daunorubicin, cytosine arabinoside and thioguanine in 42 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The mean percentage of remaining abnormal cells in day 4 bone marrow was significantly higher in patients having resistant disease (RD) than in patients entering(More)
In a cohort of 67 adult patients with newly diagnosed untreated acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), the initial clinical and biological parameters were submitted to multivariate analysis for potential prognostic significance. Median age of the patients was 40 years and the hematologic characteristics of the patients were those regularly seen. Complete(More)
Two groups of patients with a myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) were analyzed by univariate (log-rank test) and multivariate (logistic regression) analyses to detect the most important prognostic factors. By stepwise analysis, the variables found to have prognostic significance for death were as follows: age, percentage of marrow blasts, presence of(More)
Ninety-seven patients less than or equal to 70 years of age with previously untreated primary acute myeloblastic leukemia were randomly treated with either the DAT or TAD regimen: daunorubicin (70 mg/m2/day) administered on Days 1-3 (DAT) or 5-7 (TAD) of a 7-day sequence consisting of cytarabine (200 mg/m2/day) and 6-thioguanine (200 mg/m2/day).

BACKGROUND Ischemia-reperfusion (IR) involves adhesion of leukocytes to the activated endothelium, leading to tissue damage. CD11/CD18 beta(2) integrins interact with their ligands on endothelial cells and may therefore represent a therapeutic target for the prevention of IR. We investigated the effects of three monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that recognize(More)
 With the aim of determining the ability of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) to improve prognosis in refractory and relapsed acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), the data of 45 patients resistant to previous conventional chemotherapy or in first relapse were retrospectively reviewed. Thirty-seven patients presented with typical M3, five with variant form(More)
Surface markers were studied at first relapse in 66 cases of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), using a panel of five monoclonal antibodies directed to CD13, CD14, CD15, CD33 and CD34 antigens. At time of relapse, there was increased expression of CD33 (P = 0.002) and CD34 (P = 0.0001), and decreased expression of CD13 (P = 0.004) and CD15 (P = 0.0001) antigens(More)
