BACKGROUND Previous pooled analyses have reported an association between magnetic fields and childhood leukaemia. We present a pooled analysis based on primary data from studies on residential magnetic fields and childhood leukaemia published after 2000. METHODS Seven studies with a total of 10,865 cases and 12,853 controls were included. The main(More)
OBJECTIVE Transplantation of hematopoietic progenitor stem cells (HPC) is an important treatment modality for a variety of neoplastic diseases. HPC collection for transplantation with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor may be unsuccessful in patients who have received prior chemotherapy or for other reasons.

Extracranial metastases of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) are rare and usually occur in the context of recurrent intracranial GBM. We present a 39-year-old man with histologically confirmed GBM. The patient remained well for nearly 2 years, with no signs of recurrent tumour. He then presented with distant recurrence within the brain at the same time as(More)
By use of the continuous-flow blood-cell separator 137 bags of granulocyte-rich plasma were obtained from normal donors (59 bags) and patients with chronic granulocytic leukaemia (C.G.L.) (78 bags). Eighty-nine courses of granulocyte transfusion therapy consisting of 1 or more such bags were administered to forty-one ABO-compatible patients with acute(More)
Complications of bone marrow trephine are thought to be uncommon. Herein, we present a case of severe debilitating sciatic nerve palsy secondary to a gluteal artery pseudoaneurysm following bone marrow biopsy. The pseudoaneurysm was treated successfully by percutaneous embolization; however, the patient remains significantly impaired with persistent(More)
13 patients with chronic granulocytic leukaemia (C.G.L.) which was unsatisfactorily controlled underwent splenectomy. 3 out of 4 patients with hypersplenism did well, as did 5 out of 8 patients in whom the C.G.L. had undergone metamorphosis to a refractory phase. In a case of C.G.L. complicated by severe myelofibrosis the need for transfusion was reduced(More)
