Fludarabine-containing combinations have additive cell killing against leukemic blasts in vitro. It has also been shown that imatinib mesylate combined with fludarabine or cladribine had an additive effect on CML CFU-GM cells. In this regard, we aimed to investigate the effect of fludarabine-imatinib mesylate combination against CML blastic phase cell lines(More)
OBJECTIVE The curative treatment approach for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is controversial even in the rituximab (R) era. The aim of this study was to examine the FcγRIIIA gene polymorphism distribution of DLBCL patients who had been treated with R-CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) chemotherapy.

Transplantation-associated thrombotic microangiopathy (TA-TMA) is a challenge after allogeneic hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation, considering the diagnostic uncertainties and lack of established treatment. We report a 43-year-old male patient who was diagnosed as TA-TMA after allogeneic progenitor cell transplantation for a progressive ALK(More)
