Zygomycosis is an emerging, opportunistic fungal infection particularly affecting immunocomprised patients. We report the case of a 10-year-old girl who developed pulmonary zygomycosis because of Cunninghamella bertholletiae 1 year after undergoing bone marrow transplantation complicated with severe cutaneous and digestive graft-versus-host disease.(More)
The p53 tumor-suppressor protein has a key role in the induction of cellular senescence, an important barrier to cancer development. However, very little is known about the physiological mediators of cellular senescence induced by p53. CEACAM1 is an immunoglobulin superfamily member whose expression is frequently lost in human tumors and exhibits(More)
Epigenetic modifications such as methylation of CpG islands in tumor-suppressor gene promoter regions have been associated with tumor development in many human cancers. Using methylation specific multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification method, we analyzed the methylation status of 35 different genes in 16 neuroblastoma (NB) cell lines and 50 NB(More)
ATM gene alterations have been described in various lymphoproliferative malignancies suggesting that ATM contributes to lymphomagenesis. Using multiplex ligation-dependant probe amplification (MLPA), we screened 61 childhood lymphoid malignancies for ATM genomic deletion/duplication. Five samples were found to have a complete deletion or duplication. All(More)
AIHA can complicate solid organ and bone marrow transplantation early after transplant. We describe the first case report of a 16-month-old boy with mixed type warm-acting IgM and warm IgG autoantibodies AIHA, occurring eight months after liver transplantation. This case describes the complexity of this very rare form of AIHA. It also illustrates the(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about follow-up care attendance of adolescent survivors of childhood cancer, and which factors foster or hinder attendance. Attending follow-up care is especially important for adolescent survivors to allow for a successful transition into adult care. We aimed to (i) describe the proportion of adolescent survivors attending(More)
Deletion of the long arm of chromosome 11 (11q deletion) is one of the most frequent events that occur during the development of aggressive neuroblastoma. Clinically, 11q deletion is associated with higher disease stage and decreased survival probability. During the last 25 years, extensive efforts have been invested to identify the precise frequency of 11q(More)
In this study, it is hypothesized that a planned increase in the dose of recombinant human erythropoietin (rh-EPO) can prevent transfusion in very low birth weight infants. Two different regimens of rh-EPO were administrated, one consisting in increasing dosage up to 5000 U/kg/wk, according to the individual reticulocytes response, and the second in a(More)
