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)
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)
