Survivals of two series of CLL patients (99 from a retrospective series and 196 from a prospective series) were studied separately. The three main staging systems (Rai, Binet, Rundles) agreed well, but as far as survival is concerned, too many stages are defined. The authors performed a Cox multivariate analysis of survival in order to isolate important(More)
Intraocular lymphoma (IOL) is a rare form of non Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL); it has a poor prognosis and is frequently associated with central nervous system (CNS) infiltration. We report the results of a prospective study of 11 patients with IOL who received conventional chemotherapy (CT), followed by salvage high-dose (HD) CT with autologous bone marrow(More)
A 60-year-old woman from the town of Mashhad in northeastern Iran developed cardiac failure due to aortic and mitral regurgitations which needed cardiac valve replacement. Histopathological study of the valves revealed a T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Blood examination showed leukemic features with 32% of abnormal white blood cells. Human T-cell(More)
Chronic lymphoproliferative disorders are a heterogeneous group of diseases with a highly variable clinical course. In the past few years, important progress has been made in the classification, biology, and therapy of some of these disorders of which B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia is not only the most frequent but also the model for their study.(More)
PURPOSE Organ recipients are at a high risk of posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD) as a result of immunosuppressive therapy. Most B-cell lymphomas are associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. We describe a morphologically and clinically distinct group of PTLD in 11 patients that occurred late after organ transplantation and were(More)
The number of large peripheral lymphoid cells and the ratio of these large unstained cells to the total number of peripheral lymphocytes was determined by means of the Hemalog D in 57 patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and in 100 control subjects. Although the absolute number of large unstained cells/mm3 is simply a reflection of peripheral(More)
I T HAS BEEN demonstrated in various animal species that allogenic (homologous) bone marrow transplantation is possible after conditioning the recipient by a lethal dose of total-body irradiation.19 A successful transplant is usually complicated by a secondary syndrome,2 the mechanism of which probably involves the reaction of immunologically competent(More)
INCE TURKS’ initial identification of chronic lymphoS cytic leukemia (CLL), Minot and Isaacs” description of its clinical features in 1924, and Dameshek‘? hypothesis in 1967, considerable progress in the understanding of CLL has been achieved, especially during the last two decades. The purpose of the present work is to review the major advances in the(More)
Resistance to fludarabine is observed in the clinic, and molecular predictive assays for benefit from chemotherapy are required. Our objective was to determine if expression of nucleoside transport and metabolism genes was associated with response to fludarabine therapy in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). CLL cells from 56 patients were(More)
