UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Oxidative stress and redox-regulating enzymes may have roles both in lymphomagenesis and resistance to lymphoma therapy. Previous studies from the pre-rituximab era suggest that antioxidant enzyme expression is related to prognosis in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), although these results cannot be extrapolated to patient(More)
Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a rare brain tumour with a dismal prognosis. Several phase II studies with high-dose methotrexate-based regimens have shown promising early results, but in all hospital-based data published so far, the disease outcome has been poor. Patients with relapsed or refractory disease have a dismal prognosis. We(More)
Antithrombin III (AT III) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has been suggested to have high specificity and sensitivity in separating primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma from other neurological conditions. We measured with ELISA CSF and serum AT III and albumin levels in 12 lymphoma patients with CNS involvement, 30 lymphoma patients without CNS(More)
