Neuropilins and semaphorins are known as modulators of axon guidance, angiogenesis, and organogenesis in the developing nervous system, but have been recently evidenced as also playing a role in the immune system. Here we describe the expression and role of semaphorin 3F (SEMA3F) and its receptor neuropilin-2 (NRP2) in human T cell precursors. NRP2 and(More)
Among paraneoplastic syndromes (PNS) associated with malignant hemopathies, there are few reports of PNS of the central nervous system and most of them are associated with lymphomas. Limbic encephalitis is a rare neurological syndrome classically diagnosed in the context of PNS. We report the case of a 81-year-old man who presented with a relapsed acute(More)
BACKGROUND The performance of serum biomarkers for the early detection of invasive aspergillosis expectedly depends on the timing of test results relative to the empirical administration of antifungal therapy during neutropenia, although a dynamic evaluation framework is lacking. METHODS We developed a multi-state model describing simultaneously the(More)
Aspergillus species are the main cause of invasive fungal disease for patients with severe and prolonged neutropenia. Building or renovation works have been shown as one of the major causes of outbreaks of aspergillosis. This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of introduction and adaptation by air sampling of mechanical preventive measures on the(More)
UNLABELLED Rapidly fatal cases of invasive fungal infections due to a fungus later identified as Saprochaete clavata were reported in France in May 2012. The objectives of this study were to determine the clonal relatedness of the isolates and to investigate possible sources of contamination. A nationwide alert was launched to collect cases. Molecular(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic lymphocytic leukemia and small lymphocytic lymphoma are 2 different presentations of the most common B-cell neoplasm in western countries (CLL/SLL). In this disease, kidney involvement is usually silent, and is rarely reported in the literature. This study provides a clinicopathological analysis of all-cause kidney disease in CLL/SLL(More)
Nivestim™ (filgrastim) is a follow-on biologic agent licensed in the EU for the treatment of neutropenia and febrile neutropenia induced by myelosuppressive chemotherapy. Nivestim™ has been studied in phase 2 and 3 clinical trials where its efficacy and safety was found to be similar to its reference product, Neupogen®. Follow-on biologics continue to be(More)
Patients with NPM1-mutated AML M5 who develop spontaneous remission (SR) after antibiotic therapy at diagnosis seem to form a favorable prognosis and chemo sensitive subtype. We report three cases of AML M5 patients with the same genotype that experienced transient SR and are now leukemia free after standard treatment.
The outcome of adult patients with Philadelphia chromosome-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph- ALL) relapsing after pediatric-inspired front-line therapy is ill known. Here 229 relapsing Ph- ALL younger adults (18-63 years) treated within the Group for Research on Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (GRAALL)-2003/-2005 trials were considered. Salvage(More)
