Single-center experiences have shown that intensified treatments with autologous transplantation are a promising therapeutic strategy for patients with high-risk follicle-center lymphoma (FCL) at diagnosis, whereas data from prospective multicenter trials are still lacking. This paper describes the results of a prospective multicenter study of an(More)
This study provides an updated report of the consecutive multicenter Gruppo Italiano Trapianto Midollo Osseo trial employing an intensified, purging-free, total body irradiation-free, high-dose sequential chemotherapy schedule with peripheral blood stem cell autograft (i-HDS) in advanced-stage follicular lymphoma (FL). Special interest has been devoted to(More)
PURPOSE High-dose chemotherapy with peripheral blood progenitor cell (PBPC) autograft is effective in high-risk lymphoma, particularly with the addition of rituximab; however, it is associated with risk of secondary malignancy. These issues have been addressed in a series of 1,347 patients with lymphoma treated with a high-dose sequential (HDS) program. (More)
OBJECTIVE The role of complement system in the pathogenesis of systemic sclerosis (SSc) has been debated during the last decade but an evident implication in this disease has never been found. We carried out an explorative study on SSc patients to evaluate the expression of soluble and local C5b-9 complement complex and its relation with a complement(More)
BACKGROUND Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease characterized by immunological and vascular abnormalities. Until now, the cause of SSc remains unclear. Sclerodermatous graft-versus-host disease (ScGVHD) is one of the most severe complications following bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for haematological disorders. Since the first cases, the(More)
Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is one of the most common side effects encountered in patients treated with chemotherapeutic drugs binding to soluble tubulin or targeting microtubules. 1,2 Some of these drugs, such as taxanes and ixabepilone, stabilize and block microtubule remodeling, whereas others, including Vinca alkaloids, colchicine(More)
Chronic graft versus host disease (cGVHD), the most common late complication of allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), may present with sclerodermatous lesions resembling in some cases the cutaneous involvement of systemic sclerosis (SSc). Certain pathogenetic findings connect the two diseases. In this report we describe ten subjects(More)
High rate of clinical and molecular remissions in follicular lymphoma patients receiving high-dose sequential chemotherapy and autografting at diagnosis: a multicenter, prospective study by the Gruppo Italiano Trapianto Midollo Osseo (GITMO) Single-center experiences have shown that intensified treatments with autologous trans-plantation are a promising(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND The role of chemotherapy in locally advanced or metastatic gastric cancer has been controversial, but chemotherapy has recently been shown to relieve tumor-related symptoms, improve quality of life and prolong survival when compared with best supportive care. Furthermore, palliative chemotherapy is also cost-effective.(More)
We assessed the retrospective applicability and prognostic value of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) classification of chronic graft versus host disease (cGVHD) in 159 consecutive patients after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). Seventy-four patients (46.5%) were affected by late-acute GVHD (n = 19; 25.7%), classic cGVHD (n = 44;(More)
