BACKGROUND The primary therapeutic goals in the treatment of liver injury are to support liver regeneration or bridge the gap to liver transplantation (LT). Molecular adsorbent recirculating system (MARS) therapy has shown beneficial effects for specific symptoms of liver failure; however, general survival advantages have not yet been demonstrated. AIM We(More)
BACKGROUND High-cut-off hemodialysis (HCO-HD) can effectively reduce high concentrations of circulating serum free light chains (sFLC) in patients with dialysis-dependent acute kidney injury (AKI) due to multiple myeloma (MM). Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze renal recovery in a retrospective single-center cohort of dialysis-dependent MM(More)
BACKGROUND This retrospective, multicenter study aimed to reveal risk predictors for mortality in the intensive care unit (ICU) as well as survival after ICU discharge in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) requiring treatment in the ICU. METHODS AND RESULTS Multivariate analysis of data for 187 adults with AML treated in the ICU in one institution(More)
BACKGROUND A few recent studies suggested that anaemia has a marked impact on the survival of patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). However, all of these analyses did not take into consideration that chronic kidney disease (CKD) plays an important role in erythropoiesis and anaemia. Therefore, we assessed in this study whether anaemia is an(More)
The antibody-based delivery of IL2 to extracellular targets expressed in the easily accessible tumor-associated vasculature has shown potent antileukemic activity in xenograft and immunocompetent murine models of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), especially in combination with cytarabine. Here, we report our experience with 4 patients with relapsed AML(More)
