PURPOSE Treatment with alemtuzumab has resulted in negative responses for minimal residual disease (MRD) in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). In a prior analysis we demonstrated that it is possible to achieved MRD negativity, as assessed by polyclonality of immunoglobulin heavy chain after consolidation with alemtuzumab. This phase II study(More)
High dose (HD) Ara-C combined with a single HD idarubicin dose (IDA) is an efficient and safe salvage regimen for patients with refractory or relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia as indicated by phase II studies. No data are available on the pharmacokinetics of IDA after a rapid HD intravenous infusion. An open phase II pharmacokinetic and clinical study(More)
Systematic data on the ability of pegfilgrastim to mobilize stem cells after chemotherapy are scarce. We evaluated the efficacy of a single 6 mg dose of pegfilgrastim for mobilizing peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) in aggressive lymphoma patients. Between July 2004 and October 2005, 17 aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and 11 poor-risk Hodgkin's lymphoma(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells could be undetectable by flow cytometry or polymerase chain reaction after sequential treatment with fludarabine and Campath-1H. Concern has been raised regarding the ability to mobilize sufficient peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPCs) for autografting after purine analogues, and there are few data about PBPC(More)
Human neuroblastoma cells (line SH-SY5Y) were used to examine the interaction of single exposure to organophosphorus compounds (OPs) with muscarinic receptors. In this study, SH-SY5Y cells were exposed for 30 min to concentrations of paraoxon, diisopropyl phosphorofluoridate (DFP), phenyl saligenin cyclic phosphate (PSP), and mipafox (N,N'-diisopropyl(More)
Although B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) is the most common form of leukemia in Western countries, little is known about its underlying molecular abnormalities and their prognostic significance, particularly for use in early therapeutic interventions in young patients. As TP53 tumor suppressor gene abnormalities and 11q23 deletions are reported(More)
Hepatosplenic gammadelta T-cell lymphoma is a rare histologic type of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas, clinically characterized by predominant involvement of liver and spleen, no or little adenopathy, and an often aggressive course; it affects mainly adolescents and young adults, with a male predominance. Postthymic T-cell malignancies are heterogeneous in(More)
We studied 102 workers in a mechanical factory. All subjects were tested by a questionnaire screening dyspeptic symptoms in the last three months, their frequency, absenteeism period, spontaneous drugs intake and a consultant gastroenterologist request. All subjects were tested for specific IgG against Helicobacter pylori with immunoassay Elisa. Dyspepsia(More)
Trisomy 12 and deletions of 13q14.2 and 14q32 are the most common chromosome abnormalities in patients with B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL), but whether specific chromosomal defects influence the course of B-CLL is still a matter of discussion. The aim of our study was to assess the possible correlation between cytogenetic findings and clinical(More)
