The chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) immunoglobulin repertoire is biased and characterized by the existence of subsets of cases with closely homologous ("stereotyped") complementarity-determining region 3 (CDR3) sequences. In the present series, 201 (21.9%) of 916 patients with CLL expressed IGHV genes that belonged to 1 of 48 different subsets of(More)
Agnogenic myeloid metaplasia (AMM) is a chronic myeloproliferative disorder in which patients with poor prognostic features, receiving conventional treatments, have a median survival of less than 3 years. In this retrospective multicenter study, we analyze the results and try to define the indications for allogeneic stem cell transplantation in AMM. From(More)
To assess the place of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in the advanced stage of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), we retrospectively analyzed 379 consecutive patients who underwent allogeneic HSCT for advanced AML. The median follow-up of the entire cohort was 7.5 years. Sixty-nine patients (18%) were transplanted with primary(More)
The epidemiology and clinical outcome of acute myeloid leukaemia in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected adults is poorly documented. We retrospectively surveyed all French haematology centres for adult acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) cases diagnosed between January 1990 and July 1996 who were found to be HIV-seropositive before or at the time of AML(More)
PURPOSE To compare hematologic recovery in patients receiving allogeneic blood cell transplantation (BCT) with those receiving allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred eleven patients with leukemia in the early stages and with HLA-matched sibling donors were randomized in this study. One hundred one underwent(More)
PURPOSE Optimal postremission therapy remains controversial in adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In a large multicentric trial (LALA87), we compared allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) with other postremission therapies (chemotherapy or autologous transplantation) using the result of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing as(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)
Using array-based CGH, we identified 2p gain in 22/78 (28%) untreated Binet stages B/C CLL, which was the second most frequent copy number change after 13q deletion. It never occurred as a sole abnormality and was associated with other changes (6q deletion; 1p gain). The region of 2p gain frequently included two oncogenes, REL and MYCN. All patients with(More)
Allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) has emerged as an alternative to bone marrow transplantation. PBSCT can be associated with a higher incidence of chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD). In this study, we investigated whether there was a correlation between the composition of PBSC grafts (CD34+ and CD3+ cells) and(More)
PURPOSE To identify predictive factors of survival, relapse, and transplantation-related mortality (TRM) among patients with therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome (t-MDS) or acute leukemia (t-AML) who underwent allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1980 to 1998, 70 patients underwent allogeneic BMT for t-MDS (n = 31)(More)
