To further characterize JAK2 exon 12 mutations, we performed molecular screening in 409 patients with polycythemia vera or unclear erythrocytosis with unmutated JAK2V617. The frequency of JAK2exon12 mutations was 10/63 (15.9%) in PV but only 5/346 (1.4%) in the erythrocytosis cases. Nine different mutations including four new types (D544-L545del,(More)
Daunorubicin (DNR) is one of the most important cytotoxic agents in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Its use is usually limited by drug-induced cardiotoxicity depending on the cumulative dose administered. Liposomal encapsulation of DNR (DaunoXome, DNX) seems to reduce the risk of this severe side effect. To investigate the toxicity of DNX in(More)
Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) was approved for the treatment of relapsed or refractory CD20-positive follicular lymphoma (FL), subsequent to rituximab containing primary therapy. However, an increasing number of clinical studies have suggested that RIT may be more efficacious in an earlier phase of the disease. Therefore, a consensus meeting was held in May 2005(More)
