OBJECTIVE Neuropilin-1 (NRP-1), a non-tyrosine kinase receptor functioning as a mediator of angiogenesis and neuronal guidance, was recently found to be significantly overexpressed in newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with significant correlation to survival. The role of NRP-1 in refractory or relapsed AML patients and its regulation(More)
Neuropilin-1 (NRP-1), a vascular endothelial growth factors and semaphorin receptor functioning as mediator of angiogenesis and neuronal guidance, is expressed by various solid tumors. The importance of NRP-1 in hematological malignancies such as acute myeloid leukemia (AML) remains to be elucidated. Therefore, we determined NRP-1 expression by(More)
5577 Background: Oropharyngeal carcinomas are associated with HPV or with tobacco smoking and alcohol. HPV associated carcinomas arise most frequently in the tonsils and have a more favorable prognosis in contrast to tobacco smoking and alcohol induced carcinomas. Here we report on frequency and outcome of HPV associated oropharyngeal carcinomas (tonsils(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) is estimated differently. The importance of hyphal findings in nasal mucus for initiation of chronic hyperplastic sinusitis is not proven. METHODS 124 patients with clinical signs and CT-scan findings of a chronic-hyperplastic rhinosinusitis were treated by functional endoscopic sinus surgery.(More)
In the invasive forms of fungal sinusitis rapid identification of etiologic agent is of vital importance because of the different reaction of the fungi to various antifungal agents. In the non-invasive forms it is of interest for epidemiologic reasons and because of the potential transition to invasive and generalized mycoses in case of additional(More)
