PURPOSE To evaluate safety and activity of perifosine and sorafenib combination therapy in patients with lymphoproliferative diseases. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients with relapsed and refractory lymphoproliferative diseases received perifosine (50 mg twice daily) for 1 month. Patients achieving less than partial response (PR) after perifosine alone were(More)
Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) can be cured in most of the patients, but in case of refractory disease or relapse after autologous stem cell transplantation (SCT) the prognosis becomes very poor. In these patients a consensus about the standard approach has not been achieved so far and only allogeneic SCT has shown a long-term disease control. The postulated(More)
This cross-sectional survey aimed to evaluate the prevalence of burnout and estimated psychiatric disorders among haemato-oncology healthcare professionals in Italy. The aspects of work that respondents perceive as stressful and satisfying have also been examined. The assessments were made using the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), General Health(More)
BACKGROUND The graft-versus-leukemia effect is able to induce clinical responses in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia treated with a reduced intensity conditioning regimen, followed by allogeneic stem cell transplantation. We investigated whether molecular remissions could be attained after reduced intensity conditioning and allogeneic stem cell(More)
Follicular lymphoma (FL) is the second most common histotype of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and it is generally characterized by a heterogeneous clinical course. Despite recent therapeutic and diagnostic improvements, a significant fraction of FL patients still relapsed. In younger and/or fit FL relapsed patients bone marrow transplant (BMT) has represented the(More)
The presence, distribution and development of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-like immunoreactivity in the gastro-entero-pancreatic system of a cartilaginous fish Scyliorhinus stellaris (L.) was investigated by immunohistochemical methods utilizing mammalian VIP antisera. In the gut VIP-like immunoreactivity was observed in both nerves and endocrine(More)

Metergoline, a prolactin (PRL)-lowering drug with an antiserotoninergic activity, is known to restore menstruations and fertility in hyper-PRL patients even when PRL levels are not normalized. This suggests that metergoline might also affect gonadotropins release. In a double-blind cross-over study in 8 normal males, repeated administration of metergoline(More)
