Little is known about MYC dysregulation in myeloid malignancies, and the authors were unable to find published studies that evaluated MYC protein expression in primary cases of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Herein, we describe the clinical, morphologic, immunophenotypic, cytogenetic, and molecular genetic findings in two(More)
Oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy regimens are currently a standard of care for the treatment of colorectal cancer (CRC) in both the adjuvant treatment and metastatic disease settings. Significant improvements in outcomes have been achieved with oxaliplatin-based combinations in these settings when compared with administration of 5-fluorouracil alone.(More)
Patients received 5-azacytidine (AZA) 75 mg/m(2) intravenously daily for 7 days and sorafenib 400 mg orally twice daily continuously; cycles were repeated at ~1-month intervals. Forty-three acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with a median age of 64 years (range, 24-87 years) were enrolled; 37 were evaluable for response. FMS-like tyrosine kinase-3(More)
BACKGROUND Several tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are available for treatment of patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia in chronic phase (CML-CP). We analysed long-term molecular and cytogenetic response and survival outcomes for four TKI modalities used as frontline therapy for CML-CP. METHODS In a retrospective cohort analysis, we included data from(More)
BACKGROUND Accelerated phase CML most frequently represents a progression state in CML. However, some patients present with AP features at the time of diagnosis. There is limited information on the outcome of these patients who received TKIs as initial therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analyzed the outcome of 51 consecutive patients with CML who presented(More)
