Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), as most of cancers results from a complex interaction between genetic or non genetic factors. Exposures to xenobiotics endogenous or exogenous associated with a reduced individual ability in detoxifying activity, constitutes a risk of developing cancer. It is known that polymorphism of glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) genes(More)
In the spite of the impressive results achieved with imatinib in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients, differences in patient's response are observed, which may be explained by interindividual genetic variability. It is known that cytochrome P450 enzymes play a major role in the metabolism of imatinib. The present study aimed to understand the functional(More)
The multidrug resistance gene (MDR1) plays an important role in the transport of a wide range of drugs and elimination of xenobiotics from the body. Identification of polymorphisms and haplotypes in the MDR1 gene might not only help understand pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs, but also can help in the prediction of drug responses, toxicity,(More)
Extramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP) is an uncommon plasma cell neoplasm results from plasma cell proliferation and consists of monoclonal plasmacytic infiltration, without bone marrow involvement and any other systemic characteristics of multiple myeloma. EMP accounts for 3% of all plasma cell neoplasms and approximately 80% to 90% of EMP involve submucosa of(More)
The glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are phase II xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes known to be involved in the detoxification of carcinogens and anticancer drugs. Individual genetic variation linked to inherited polymorphisms of GSTT1 and GSTM1 leading to a complete loss of enzyme activity could expose subjects to develop cancer or to induce drug(More)

Fusarium is a filamentous brown fungus found in soil, on plants and outdoors responsible for localized or disseminated infections. Diagnosis is based on blood cultures and skin biopsy. Disseminated fusariosis is a rare and serious fungal infection, that occurs especially in neutropenic immunosuppressed patients. Treatment is difficult and mortality is(More)
