Allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) remains the best curative option for patients with refractory AML or with high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). For decades, age alone had been widely used as the primary criterion to assess eligibility for allogeneic SCT; however, prospective studies to evaluate allogeneic SCT in elderly patients are still(More)
Intestinal vasculitis caused by persistent measles virus infection of intestinal endothelial cells was described in Crohn's disease. Furthermore, endothelial cell autoantibodies have been demonstrated in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Autoantibodies against intestinal endothelial cells were visualized by indirect immunofluorescence in patients with IBD,(More)
Non-relapse mortality after Allo-SCT has significantly decreased over the last years. Nevertheless, relapse remains a major cause for post SCT mortality in patients with AML and high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). In this retrospective single-center analysis, we have analyzed the treatment outcomes of 108 patients with AML or MDS, who relapsed after(More)
The concept of arming antibodies with bioactive payloads for a site-specific therapy of cancer has gained considerable interest in recent years. However, a successful antibody-based targeting approach critically relies on the availability of a tumor-associated target that is not only preferentially expressed in the tumor tissue but is also easily accessible(More)
NBS1, also known as NBN, plays an important role in maintaining genomic stability. Interestingly, rs2735383 G > C, located in a microRNA binding site in the 3'-untranslated region (UTR) of NBS1, was shown to be associated with increased susceptibility to lung and colorectal cancer. However, the relation between rs2735383 and susceptibility to breast cancer(More)
