Sixty transfusion-dependent thalassemic patients were studied by simultaneous measurement of circulating thyroid hormones, basal thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and TSH response to thyrotropin-releasing hormone with the aim of evaluating the frequency of hypothyroidism in such patients, and the relationship between hypothyroidism and compliance with(More)
Using a combination of oligonucleotide probes and restriction endonuclease enzymes, we characterize beta-thalassemic mutations in 91 homozygous patients and 86 unrelated carriers. Overall, 268 beta-thalassemic genes were obtained. Eleven beta-globin mutations were identified, confirming the wide molecular heterogeneity of beta-thalassemia in Calabria.(More)
One hundred patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) followed in our department between November 1969 and December 1982 were reviewed and classified according to the staging system proposed by the International Workshop on CLL (IWCLL). Analysis of actuarial survival curves revealed a significant chi-square value for heterogeneity and trend. In(More)
The H ferritin promoter spans approximately 150 bp, upstream of the transcription start and is composed by two cis-elements in position -132 (A box) and -62 (B-box), respectively. The A box is recognized by the transcription factor Sp1, and the B-box by a protein complex called Bbf, which includes the CAAT binding factor NF-Y. In this study we performed a(More)
