BACKGROUND This study aimed to explore the potential association of mutation in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) with brain metastases in patients with pulmonary adenocarcinoma. METHODS We analyzed clinical data on 314 patients who were tested for EGFR mutation and underwent brain magnetic resonance imaging at diagnosis. The relationship(More)
We investigated the prognostic value of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) pattern of bone marrow involvement in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) eligible for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). 126 patients with untreated MM indicated for ASCT underwent spine MRI and cytogenetic analysis at diagnosis. All patients received ASCT after(More)
This study investigated the prognostic factors of Castleman disease (CD) and focused specifically on multicentric CD (MCD). Seventy patients with CD were studied. Forty-three patients (61.5%) had unicentric CD (UCD) and 27 patients (38.5%) had MCD. Thirty-six patients with UCD (83.7%) underwent surgical excision, and 25 patients with MCD (92.6%) received(More)
Autoreactive cytotoxic T cells play a key role in the pathogenesis of aplastic anemia (AA) by myelosuppressive cytokines including interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor alpha, and transforming growth factor beta. The purpose of this study is to determine which single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in cytokine genes were relevant to AA risk and whether(More)
The role of 18F FDG-PET in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has not been firmly established. We conducted this study to investigate the clinical implication of SUVmax on 18F FDG-PET as a prognostic factor in patients with HCC, especially in the metastatic setting. HCC patients with extrahepatic metastatic lesions were enrolled that were evaluated by 18F(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated family caregivers' awareness of disease status and attitude toward disclosure of disease progression compared with those of cancer patients and explored the potential association between family caregivers' attitudes and patients' quality of life (QOL). METHODS We carried out a survey using self-administered questionnaires(More)
We hypothesized that polymorphisms of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene might affect clinical outcomes of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Three VDR gene polymorphisms (BsmI G>A, ApaI G>T, and TaqI T>C) were genotyped in 147 patients who underwent HLA-matched sibling allogeneic HSCT. Frequencies of infection, graft-vs.-host disease(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS We investigated the clinical characteristics and prognosis of elderly patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). METHODS We reviewed the clinical data, laboratory findings, bone marrow findings, and cytogenetic analysis of elderly patients (≥ 60 years) with ALL, and data of an additional 101 younger adult patients (< 60 years) with(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical outcome of extranodal natural killer T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL) has improved substantially as a result of new treatment strategies with non-anthracycline-based chemotherapies and upfront use of concurrent chemoradiotherapy or radiotherapy. A new prognostic model based on the outcomes obtained with these contemporary treatments was(More)
There is no standard salvage chemotherapy for relapsed or refractory peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs). Gemcitabine combined with cisplatin has been known as an effective regimen for lymphoma treatment in the salvage setting. We investigated the efficacy and toxicity of gemcitabine, dexamethasone, and cisplatin (GDP) for relapsed or refractory PTCLs in(More)
