The BCR-ABL1 negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are associated with an increased risk of both venous and arterial thromboembolic events. Thromboses may be the presenting clinical feature of an MPN or may occur during the course of the disease. Treatment comprises anticoagulant and antiaggregant agents as in non- MPN thromboses, and treatment of(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the alleged association between thrombophilia and unexplained third-trimester stillbirth. STUDY DESIGN Case subjects were 37 women with a history of a third-trimester unexplained stillbirth. Control subjects were 46 volunteers, group-matched for ethnic origin, with no history of stillbirth, recurrent(More)
Hematological malignancies during pregnancy are rare, which results in the absence of large prospective studies. The diagnosis is often delayed due to the symptom similarity to those of pregnancy and the recommendation to avoid imaging studies during gestation. Management of hematological malignancies during pregnancy poses challenges both to the patient(More)
BACKGROUND Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are emerging. In attempt to eradicate CRE colonization, we conducted a semirandomized, prospective, controlled trial using oral nonabsorbable antibiotics. METHODS Consecutive hospitalized CRE carriers were studied. Patients whose rectal isolates were gentamicin sensitive but colistin resistant were(More)

With the discovery of the JAK2V617F mutation in patients with Philadelphia chromosome-negative (Ph(-)) myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) in 2005, major advances have been made in the diagnosis of MPNs, in understanding of their pathogenesis involving the JAK/STAT pathway, and finally in the development of novel therapies targeting this pathway.(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT) remains the only curative therapy for myelofibrosis. The number of HSCTs performed for this indication has been steadily increasing over the past years, even after the approval of the Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor, ruxolitinib. This increase may be attributed to improved patient(More)
With increase of maternal age, the incidence of haematological malignancies during pregnancy is rising and posing diagnostic and treatment challenges. Lymphoma is the fourth most common malignancy diagnosed in pregnancy; Hodgkin lymphoma is more frequent in pregnant women than non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The proportion of highly aggressive lymphomas in(More)
Evaluation of early response during induction therapy for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is used for prognostication and re-induction strategy, yet the optimal evaluation time point is unknown. Clearance of bone marrow (BM) blasts by day 14 of therapy does not ensure remission; thus, some patients requiring re-induction are neglected. This study aimed to(More)
Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) infection is a common complication during immunosuppression. Its significance for multiple myeloma (MM) patients undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) after treatment with novel agents affecting immune system remains undetermined. Data on 62 consecutive MM patients receiving bortezomib-dexamethasone (VD) (n = 41; 66%)(More)
Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are generally considered to be diseases of elderly population; however, 20% of subjects diagnosed with ET are younger than 40 years. Increase in gestational age in the Western world and improved diagnostic tools raise MPN incidence during pregnancy. MPNs are associated with a remarkable risk for thrombosis and the(More)
