Familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis type 3 (FHL3) caused by deep intronic mutation and inversion in UNC13D.
Familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (FHL) is an autosomal recessive, often-fatal hyperinflammatory disorder. Mutations in PRF1, UNC13D, STX11, and STXBP2 are causative of FHL2, 3, 4, and 5,Expand

Influence of folate pathway polymorphisms on high-dose methotrexate-related toxicity and survival in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Abstract The prediction of high-dose methotrexate (HD-MTX) toxicity is a key issue in the individualization of treatment in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Our aim was to evaluate theExpand
