PURPOSE To report nine cases of orbital lymphomas. METHODS We reviewed the clinical records of nine patients diagnosed with orbital lymphoma and performed a literature search related to this condition. RESULTS We present a series of five women and four males with orbital lymphoma involving the orbital region. In our cases, most patients presented(More)
PURPOSE We analyzed the incidence, risk factors, and outcome of therapy-related myeloid neoplasms (t-MNs) in patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) in first complete remission (CR). PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1996 to 2008, 1,025 patients with APL were enrolled onto three sequential trials (LPA96, LPA99, and LPA2005) of the Programa Español para(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Interferon-a (IFN) is increasingly being used as the drug of choice in chronic myeloid leukemia patients. The main objectives of the study were to study the influence of the classic prognostic variables and response to IFN, and to assess the influence of this response on the course of the disease and survival. DESIGN AND METHODS(More)
The expression of CD56 antigen in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) blasts has been associated with short remission duration and extramedullary relapse. We investigated the clinical significance of CD56 expression in a large series of patients with APL treated with all-trans retinoic acid and anthracycline-based regimens. Between 1996 and 2009, 651 APL(More)

The clinical significance of resistance/intolerance to hydroxycarbamide (HC) was assessed in a series of 890 patients with polycythaemia vera (PV). Resistance/intolerance to HC was recorded in 137 patients (15·4%), consisting of: need for phlebotomies (3·3%), uncontrolled myeloproliferation (1·6%), failure to reduce massive splenomegaly (0·8%), development(More)
It is unclear whether anticoagulation guidelines intended for the general population are applicable to patients with polycythemia vera (PV) and essential thrombocythemia (ET). In the present study, the risk of thrombotic recurrence was analyzed in 150 patients with PV and ET treated with vitamin K antagonists (VKA) because of an arterial or venous(More)
We studied the value of soluble CD25, CD8, CD23, CD54 and CD44 serum levels as tumor burden markers in lymphoma. Soluble CD25 compared with the others sCD and the usual serum factors (albumin, lactate dehydrogenase, beta 2-microglobulin, uric acid and C-reactive protein), showed the strongest correlation with the Ann Arbor stage and the number of affected(More)
A search for genes potentially regulated by STAT5 identified leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) as a good candidate. Using various experimental approaches, we have validated LIF as a direct transcriptional target of STAT5 in myeloid cell lines: STAT5 binds to LIF promoter, and LIF expression is increased after activation of the JAK2/STAT5 pathway. We also(More)
Chronic myeloid leukemia patients display heterogeneous responses to imatinib. Survival depends on baseline clinical characteristics (including prognostic scoring systems) and on early response (such as >10% BCR-ABL/ABL ratio at 3 months of therapy). The results of switching to second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors (2GTKIs) may contain a bias since,(More)
