The pathogenetic role and the clinical importance of the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (APAs) in patients with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) are not clear. In this study, the prevalence and clinical significance of APAs were investigated in patients with ITP. Eighty-two newly diagnosed ITP patients were prospectively studied. They were(More)
Between July 1992 and July 2001, 81 patients with de novo adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treated according to the German Multicenter Study Group for Adult ALL (GMALL) 01/81 protocol were evaluated in order to analyze the effect of aberrant myeloid antigen expression on prognosis. We observed myeloid antigen aberrant expression in 21 of the adult(More)
(Immunogenetics, Zwijndzecht, Belgium). Results were analyzed with the Yates continuity-corrected chi-square test using the GraphPad program. We found that the frequency of the HLA-DRB1*1302 haplotype was 21.43% in the group of patients compared to 2.56% in the controls (P 5 .0199) (Table 1). The relative risk for the carriers was 8.36. The frequencies of(More)
Background and aims: Hepatic steatosis is the basis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NALFD). Mere fat accumulation within hepatocytes is considered the mild form of NAFLD, but can progress in some patients to advanced steatohepatitis (NASH), which may lead to fibrosis, cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma. However, even hepatic steatosis alone may be(More)
Alloimmune hemolytic anemia is a rare complication following allogeneic organ transplantation. Despite that some other drugs have also been reported, in the majority of cases this complication has been associated with cyclosporine therapy. We here present a case of severe alloimmune hemolytic anemia due to ABO minor incompatibility after renal(More)
Primary pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) was diagnosed in two male patients, 65 and 69 years old respectively. In both, surface markers of peripheral blood nuclear cells revealed the presence of TCR alphabeta+ phenotype. Clonality of T cells was confirmed by the polymerase chain reaction in both patients, in whom, prednisone at a dose of 1 mg/kg/day improved(More)
