Patients who are admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with hematologic malignancies have a poor prognosis, although outcomes have improved in recent years. This study analyzed ICU mortality, short- and long-term survival, and prognostic factors for 100 consecutive critically ill patients with a hematologic malignancy who were admitted to our polyvalent(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Only 20-30% of elderly patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are enrolled in clinical trials because of co-morbid disorders or poor performance status. We present the results of treatment of Philadelphia chromosome-negative (Ph-) ALL patients over 55 yr treated in the PETHEMA ALL-96 trial. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1996 to(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Although doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine (ABVD) is considered the standard chemotherapy regimen for Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL), information on the results of this therapy in human immunodeficiency (HIV)-related HL is scarce. We analyzed the results of the ABVD regimen and highly active antiretroviral therapy(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To assess the use of the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) viral load as a marker for lymphoma diagnosis in HIV-infected patients. We also aimed to identify the relationship between EBV viral load in plasma and the presence of EBV in lymphoma cells. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective observational study of two HIV-infected populations:(More)
Among other phenotypic markers, CD11b expression has been considered as an unfavorable prognostic factor, both in terms of overall survival (OS), disease-free survival (DFS), and attainment and duration of complete remissions (CRs) in adult patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Recently, some groups have restricted its prognostic impact to poor(More)
Strategies for reversing graft failure (GF) after allogeneic stem cell transplant (SCT) depend on the options available in each situation. GF was reported in 16 Spanish institutions from January 2006 to July 2011. Primary GF was defined as an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) > 0.5 × 10(9)/L not reached by day + 28 after SCT from peripheral blood (PB) or bone(More)
BACKGROUND Some copy number alterations (CNAs) have independent prognostic significance for adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). METHODS This study analyzed via multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification the frequency and prognostic impact of CNAs of 12 genetic regions in 142 adolescents and adults with de novo precursor B-cell ALL.

OBJECTIVE Since the introduction of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) patients with HIV-related diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) show better control of immunosuppression, which may have an impact on the characteristics and prognosis of the disease. We aimed to compare the clinical presentation and prognosis of patients with HIV-related and(More)
Immunochemotherapy with cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, prednisone and rituximab (R-CHOP) is the standard treatment in non-immunosuppressed patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), but its adequacy has not been definitively established in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-related lymphoma. This phase II trial aimed to(More)
Limited comparative data exist for the treatment of HIV-associated non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We analyzed pooled individual patient data for 1546 patients from 19 prospective clinical trials to assess treatment-specific factors (type of chemotherapy, rituximab, and concurrent combination antiretroviral [cART] use) and their influence on the outcomes complete(More)
