Hypercalcaemia is a common metabolic complication of malignant disease often requiring emergency intervention. Although it is more frequently associated with solid tumours, malignancy-associated hypercalcaemia (MAH) is seen in a significant number of patients with blood diseases. Its association with myeloma and adult T-cell leukaemia/lymphoma is well(More)
The myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are clonal, hematological malignancies that include polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia and primary myelofibrosis. While most cases of MPN are sporadic in nature, a familial pattern of inheritance is well recognised. The phenotype and status of the commonly acquired JAK2 V617F, CALR exon 9 and MPL W515L/K(More)
Increasing numbers of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) are being performed for patients who have failed a previous allogeneic or autologous SCT. We investigated whether the EBMT risk score could predict outcome after a subsequent allo-SCT. We analyzed prognostic factors in 124 consecutive patients who underwent a second(More)
To modulate in vitro cytarabine (ara-C) resistance we combined ara-C with six potential resistance modifiers in 10 paediatric acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) patient samples (methyl thiazol tetrazolium assay). Drug interactions were determined by median drug effect analysis. Co-incubation of ara-C/aphidicolin showed strong synergism. The combinations of(More)
Large granular lymphocyte leukemia (T-LGL) is an indolent T lymphoproliferative disorder that was difficult to diagnose with certainty until clonality testing of the T cell receptor gene became routinely available. We studied the natural history and response to treatment in 25 consecutive patients with T-LGL diagnosed between 2004 and 2008 in which the(More)
Patients undergoing treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia are at risk for fungal infections including disseminated candidiasis. We describe a case of systemic Candida albicans infection associated with life-threatening gastrointestinal hemorrhage due to unusual necrotizing vasculitis involving the gastrointestinal tract. We explore the association(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is a chronic B-cell lympho-proliferative disorder in which lymphomatous transformations occur in 5%-15% of patients. Histologically these cases resemble diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, or Richter's transformation, in over 80% of cases. Rare cases of transformation to Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) have been reported in the(More)
Dear editor, We read with interest the article by Pierdomenico et al. [1] reviewing the efficacy and tolerability of a 5-day doseintensified regimen of azacitidine (100 mg/m/day×5 days) in intermediate-2 and high-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). While the approved regimen is 75 mg/m/day for 7 days every 28 days [2], a 5-day regimen with the elimination(More)
