BACKGROUND Storing ovarian tissue for fertility preservation in cancer patients carries the risk of the presence of malignant cells that could lead to recurrence of cancer after reimplantation. Methods to exclude presence of cancer cells were used to improve the safety of cryopreservation-reimplantation procedures. METHODS Fifty-eight patients with(More)
The diagnosis of APL is based on clinical and morphological tests though the final diagnosis is at the molecular level. An accurate diagnosis is important as it mandates targeted therapy to improve survival. We report a case of APL without t(15;17) in conventional cytogenetic study and with initially negative fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) study(More)
PURPOSE To assess whether clonal IgH genes in CSF of patients with CNS lymphoma correlates with the disease course. BACKGROUND It has been shown that the PCR technique, which offers a sensitive test for diagnosis of systemic lymphoproliferative malignancies, can be applied to the CSF. METHODS Seventy-three CSF specimens from 32 patients (27 with primary(More)
We retrospectively studied the prognostic role of molecular (gene rearrangement, GRR) bone marrow (BM) involvement in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL, 424 patients) and in peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL, 67 patients). When correlating BM GRR to histological findings at diagnosis, the GRR test was more sensitive (p = 0.036) but less specific (p <(More)
