We report a 69-year-old woman of Mexican origin with a 6-year history of progressive paresis, mild peripheral neuropathy, and recent onset of fluctuating mental status. Head and spinal MRI revealed contrast enhancing thickened meninges which on biopsy disclosed amyloid deposition. Immunohistochemistry identified the amyloid as transthyretin (TTR), and(More)
Corroborating evidence related to the role of aberrations on one-carbon metabolism (OCM) genes has been inconsistent. We evaluated the association between polymorphisms in 12 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 8 OCM genes (CBS, FPGS, FTHFD, MTRR, SHMT1, SLC19A1, TCN1, and TYMS), and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) risk in a multi-ethnic population which(More)
AIM Pharmacogenetics of methotrexate (MTX) contributes to interindividual differences in toxicity. We aimed to evaluate the impact of SNPs within the MTX pathway genes on MTX-induced toxicity and MTX plasma levels at 48 h following treatment in Asian adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia or non-Hodgkin lymphoma. PATIENTS & METHODS Patients (n = 71)(More)
We evaluated the association of two IL10 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (rs1800896 and rs1800871) with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) risk in the three major races of the Malaysian population (Malay, Chinese and Indian; 317 cases and 330 controls). Our initial screening demonstrated that rs1800871 but not rs1800896 was significantly associated with(More)
There are few randomized trials comparing filgrastim and pegfilgrastim in peripheral blood stem cell mobilization (PBSCM). None of the trials studied the effects of the timing of pegfilgrastim administration on the outcomes of mobilization. We conducted a randomized triple blind control trial comparing the outcomes of filgrastim 5 µg/kg daily from day 3(More)
Large consortia efforts and genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have linked a number of genetic variants within the 6p21 chromosomal region to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Complementing these efforts, we genotyped previously reported SNPs in the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I (rs6457327) and class II (rs9271100, rs2647012 and rs10484561) regions(More)
PURPOSE Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) has no standard of care for patients who are relapsed or refractory to autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT). This phase II study examined safety and activity of panobinostat in this population. PATIENTS AND METHODS Panobinostat 40 mg was administered orally three times per week. The primary end point was objective(More)
