Late cardiac complications in cancer survivors may develop from subclinical myocardial damage. Biochemical correlates of minimal myocardial changes can be analyzed using a commercially available rapid assay. Biomarkers are considered more sensitive markers of subclinical cardiotoxicity than conventional electrocardiographic and echocardiographic methods.(More)
Febrile neutropenia (FN) remains a potentially life-threatening complication of anticancer chemotherapy. Bacterial translocation via intestinal mucosa is a significant mechanism of FN development. Competitive inhibition of bowel colonization by pathogenic microorganisms by lactic acid bacteria could be a useful prevention of FN. The aim of the study was the(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of a variety of infectious complications in patients with CLL regarding the duration of CLL and the type of treatment. We present the retrospective analysis of patients with CLL treated at our institution in years 2004-2016. We collected data about the type of infection, pathogenes, treatment and severity(More)
The results of treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia, when combination ATRA + chemotherapy is used in induction and maintainance therapy and risk adapted strategy applied in consolidation, improved at present time. Enhanced supportive therapy also contribute to improved outcome of APL patients. 3 - year relapse free, overall survival and clinical and(More)
We evaluated responses to the treatment and long-term outcomes of chronic myeloid leukemia patients treated with imatinib as first-line treatment in routine clinical setting from two countries with centralized tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) treatment. We assessed prognostic significance of European LeukemiaNet (ELN) 2006- and 2009-defined responses and(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the presented study was to evaluate the frequency-domain signal-averaged ECGs (SAECG) abnormalities in childhood and adolescence acute leukemia and lymphoma survivors treated either with or without anthracyclines (ANT) containing chemotherapy in comparison with healthy volunteers. BACKGROUND The late development of(More)
BACKGROUND In many patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia requiring treatment, induction therapy with rituximab plus chemotherapy improves outcomes compared with chemotherapy alone. In this study we aimed to investigate the potential of rituximab maintenance therapy to prolong disease control in patients who respond to rituximab-containing induction(More)
