UNLABELLED PET/CT with (18)F-FDG is an important noninvasive diagnostic tool for management of patients with lymphoma, and its use may surpass current guideline recommendations. The aim of the present study is to enlarge the growing body of evidence concerning (18)F-FDG avidity of lymphoma to provide a basis for future guidelines. METHODS The reports from(More)
Therapy of Hodgkin disease (HD) is designed to prolong progression-free survival and minimize toxicity. The best regimen to achieve this has not yet been defined. A total of 108 patients with newly diagnosed HD and adverse prognostic factors were prospectively studied between 1999 and 2004. They were assigned to therapy according to defined risk(More)
Recent studies suggest an increased risk for Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP) in adults receiving short-interval rituximab-CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone) therapy for diffuse large cell B cell lymphoma (DLBCL). This retrospective study evaluates precise PJP incidence and the efficacy of anti-PJP prophylaxis in DLBCL.(More)
BACKGROUND The investigational endeavors of ovarian cryopreservation await the clinical experience of auto- or xenotransplantation, in vitro maturation of thawed primordial follicles, their in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer. Although promising, this experience is not yet available. Moreover, the risk of possible reimplantation of malignant stem(More)
A retrospective, international, multicenter study was undertaken to assess: (i) the prognostic role of 'interim' positron emission tomography performed during treatment with doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma; and (ii) the reproducibility of the Deauville five-point scale for the interpretation of interim(More)
The level of cholesterol in human plasma is regulated to a large extent by the interaction between apolipoprotein B100 (apoB) containing low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles and the LDL receptor. LDL receptor gene mutations give rise to familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), a disorder characterized by increased concentrations of plasma LDL, xanthomatosis(More)
The sterol 27-hydroxylase (EC catalyzes steps in the oxidation of sterol intermediates that form bile acids. Mutations in this gene give rise to the autosomal recessive disease cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX). CTX is characterized by tendon xanthomas, cataracts, a multitude of neurological manifestations, and premature atherosclerosis. A(More)
The use of 18F-fluoro-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) in primary gastric lymphoma (PGL) is challenging due to physiologic FDG activity in the stomach and variability in the degree of uptake in various histologic subtypes. This study assesses FDG avidity and PET/CT patterns in newly diagnosed PGL. Sixty-two PET/CT(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical pretreatment risk factors indicate the severity of disease in patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Ga-67 scintigraphy during treatment is an early indicator of treatment-related features of lymphoma cells. The ability of risk factors and Ga-67 to predict disease outcome was compared in 139 patients with aggressive NHL. (More)
