International clinical practice guidelines for the treatment and prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer
TLDR
The use of LMWH for VTE prevention in cancer patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery may be recommended as for laparotomy and mechanical methods are not recommended as monotherapy except when pharmacological methods are contraindicated. Expand
18F-FDG Avidity in Lymphoma Readdressed: A Study of 766 Patients
TLDR
It is indicated that with the exception of extranodal marginal zone lymphoma and small lymphocytic lymphoma, most lymphoma subtypes have high 18F-FDG avidity. Expand
Non‐Hodgkin's lymphoma presenting with spinal epidural involvement
TLDR
An intensive treatment combining irradiation with chemotherapy, and surgery as needed, is suggested in order to achieve good local response and long‐term survival in non‐Hodgkin's lymphoma with spinal epidural involvement at presentation. Expand
International clinical practice guidelines for the treatment and prophylaxis of thrombosis associated with central venous catheters in patients with cancer
TLDR
This work found no prospective randomized studies, two non‐randomized prospective studies and one retrospective study examining the efficacy and safety of low‐molecular‐weight heparin plus vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) examining the management of CRT in cancer patients, and no standard approach in terms of AC duration has been established. Expand
Full dose vincristine (without 2‐mg dose limit) in the treatment of lymphomas
TLDR
There is some rationale to increase the dose of vincristine, but not enough to say whether or not this will improve the outcome of lymphoma patients treated with this drug. Expand
Cancer and thrombosis revisited.
TLDR
There is a two-way connection between coagulation and cancer as tumor results in alterations in hemostatic balance, and thrombosis may promote tumor cell growth. Expand
Peroxidative free radical formation and O-demethylation of etoposide(VP-16) and teniposide(VM-26).
TLDR
It appears that O-demethylation catalyzed by peroxidases may be an important mechanism for the formation of reactive intermediates and may play a role in the mechanism of action of VP-16 and VM-26. Expand
Aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma: early prediction of outcome with 67Ga scintigraphy.
TLDR
Gallium 67 scintigraphic findings after one cycle of chemotherapy and at midtreatment are predictive of outcome in patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma, while CT findings are not predictive. Expand
Acquired activated protein C resistance is common in cancer patients and is associated with venous thromboembolism.
TLDR
Although factor V Leiden is not a major risk factor for thrombosis in cancer patients, acquired activated protein C resistance is common and may contribute to the thromBotic tendency in these patients. Expand
Risk-adapted BEACOPP regimen can reduce the cumulative dose of chemotherapy for standard and high-risk Hodgkin lymphoma with no impairment of outcome.
TLDR
Early interim fluorine-18 2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG)-PET/CT is a useful tool for adjustment of chemotherapy on an individual basis and similar EFS and OS rates were observed for patients in both risk groups. Expand
