BACKGROUND Allogeneic haematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is associated with frequent and severe malnutrition, which may contribute to transplant-related morbidity. While both enteral nutrition (EN) via a nasogastric tube and parenteral nutrition (PN) are effective, it remains unclear what is the optimal method of nutritional support. (More)
To better define the place of multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) in routine cytogenetic diagnosis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), we compared MLPA and fluorescence in situ hybridization (iFISH) data obtained in 77 CLL patients. Although MLPA detected most recurrent copy number genomic aberrations (90.9%), false-negative results(More)
The molecular mechanisms that regulate megakaryocyte (MK) ploidization are poorly understood. Using MK differentiation from primary human CD34(+) cells, we observed that p19(INK4D) expression was increased both at the mRNA and protein levels during ploidization. p19(INK4D) knockdown led to a moderate increase (31.7% +/- 5%) in the mean ploidy of MKs(More)
The prognosis of patients older than 50 with relapsed or refractory AML is dismal. Azacitidine has been investigated in older AML patients. Here we report the outcome of 130 patients older than 50 years included in a multicenter patient named program of azacitidine after relapse (n=67) or induction failure (n=63) of intensive chemotherapy. Median age was 67(More)
Morphological changes of plasma cells (PC) are common in multiple myeloma (MM). Loss of round or oval nuclear shape has been related to cell malignancy in human, and we looked for the occurrence of such morphological change on PC from bone marrow (BM) smears in a retrospective series of 169 MM patients at diagnosis. Nuclear shape changes of PC differed(More)
We retrospectively identified an outbreak of 18 episodes of P. aeruginosa bacteriemia in 17 patients with hematologic malignancies in 2004. All strains were ticarcillin I/R, 77% ciprofloxacin I/R, 72% ceftazidime I/R, 72% amikacin I/R and 50% imipenem I/R. The outbreak was multiclonal. Colistin was employed for documented therapy in ten cases including(More)
We report our experience on bendamustine and rituximab (BR) combination in 26 patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) complicated by autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA). At the time of BR initiation, 88% of the patients had already been treated for AIHA and CLL was progressive regardless of AIHA in all patients but one. Overall response rates were(More)
Defining features of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) are not only its immunophenotype of CD19(+)CD5(+)CD23(+)sIgdim expressing clonal mature B cells but also its highly variable clinical course. In recent years, advances in massively parallel sequencing technologies have led to rapid progress in our understanding of the CLL genome and epigenome. Overall,(More)
