The purpose of this study was to determine if Gulf War veterans with complaints of severe fatigue and/or chemical sensitivity (n = 72) fulfill case definitions for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and/or multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and to compare the characteristics of those veterans who received a diagnosis of CFS (n = 24) to a group of non-veterans(More)
Bamboo is one of the important plant for pulp, paper and charcoal industries. After China, India is the second largest bamboo reserve in Asia. Around the globe, wide genetic diversity of bamboo is present which serves as the base for selection and improvement. DNA based molecular markers appears to be a striking substitute for systematic assessment of the(More)
Trichofolliculoma represents abortive differentiation of pluripotent skin cells toward hair follicles. We present a case of an adult female with lobulated mass involving the tip and dorsum of the nose for the last 15 years. The systemic and radiological examinations were noncontributory. The clinical diagnosis was thought to be dermoid cyst. The fine-needle(More)
Polyvalent alloantisera, prepared by reciprocal immunization of F344 (RT1lv1 haplotypes) and WF (RT1u haplotype) rats, as well as monoclonal antibodies, were used to immunoprecipitate class I alloantigens from detergent extracts of monolayer cultures of 35S-methionine-labelled liver cells. Two-dimensional IEF/SDS-PAGE gel analysis resolved the RT1.Alv1 and(More)
Patients with MYC/BCL2 double-hit lymphoma (DHL) are known to have an aggressive clinical course and to respond poorly to various therapies including intensive chemotherapy and stem cell transplant. Less is known about high-grade B-cell lymphoma with MYC rearrangement without concomitant BCL2 and BCL6 rearrangement, designated here as single-hit lymphoma(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Flow cytometry is an important tool to diagnose acute leukaemia. Attempts are being made to find the minimal number of antibodies for correctly diagnosing acute leukaemia subtypes. The present study was designed to evaluate the analysis of side scatter (SSC) versus CD45 flow dot plot to distinguish acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) from(More)
Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) report cognitive difficulties (impaired attention, memory and reasoning). Neuropsychological tests have failed to consistently find cognitive impairments to the degree reported by CFS patients. We tested patients with CFS and sedentary controls in protocols designed to measure sensory reactivity and acquisition(More)
In patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, MYC rearrangement (MYC-R), MYC expression, or concurrent expression of MYC and BCL2 is associated with a poorer prognosis. P53 expression also has been shown to confer inferior survival in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma patients, but less is known about the role of P53 expression in those with MYC-R, MYC(More)
OBJECTIVE HIV-positive patients with hematologic malignancies are frequently not considered for treatment with allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) because of reported high morbidity and mortality with this procedure and scant published experience. Advances in HIV care and supportive care for allo-HSCT prompted us to review our(More)
AIMS Large B cell lymphomas with MYC and BCL6/3q27 rearrangements, designated MYC/BCL6 DHL, are uncommon. Our aim was to better characterize this group of tumours. METHODS AND RESULTS We studied the clinicopathological features and outcome of 13 patients with MYC/BCL6 DHL and compared this group to a group of 83 MYC/BCL2 DHL patients. There were eight men(More)
