However, IA early after HSCT has become less frequent due to the shortened neutropenic period, and the clinical significance of empirical treatment for aspergillosis based on persistent febrile neutropenia (FN) became less clear.(More)
Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is a distinct subset of acute myeloid leukemia characterized by an abnormal fusion protein, PML/RARA. All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) and arsenic trioxide, which are the major molecularly targeted therapies in APL, affect or degrade the PML/RARA fusion protein and cause differentiation and apoptosis of APL cells.
