BACKGROUND The number of cells positive for the α-6 and α-2 integrin subunits and the c-Met receptor in primary tumors and bone biopsies from prostate cancer patients has been correlated with metastasis and disease progression. The objective of this study was to quantify disseminated tumour cells present in bone marrow in prostate cancer patients using(More)
Relapse in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) after chemotherapy reflects the persistence of resistant leukemia stem cells (LSCs). These cells have been described in the CD34 + CD38- cell fraction. Leukapheresis products were harvested in 123 patients in morphological complete remission and analyzed by multiparameter flow cytometry. The CD34 + CD38- cell(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a heterogeneous disease. Prognosis is mainly influenced by patient age at diagnosis and cytogenetic alterations, two of the main factors currently used in AML patient risk stratification. However, additional criteria are required to improve the current risk classification and better adapt patient care. In neoplastic cells,(More)
AIM To evaluate quantitatively and qualitatively the different CD34(+) cell subsets after priming by chemotherapy granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (± G-CSF) in patients with acute myeloid leukemia. METHODS Peripheral blood and bone marrow samples were harvested in 8 acute myeloid leukemia patients during and after induction chemotherapy. The(More)
