BACKGROUND A number of studies have examined the relationship between the expression of the class III β-tubulin (TUBB3) and the treatment responses to the taxane/vinorebine-based chemotherapy in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the results of these studies were inconsistent and inconclusive. Therefore, we conducted an up-to-date(More)
Since the introduction of imatinib mesylate, the role of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) for CML has essentially been reserved for patients with advanced disease or imatinib resistance. In addition, there have been concerns regarding imatinib associated cardiac toxicity. We investigated the outcome of 61 patients with CML who(More)
Non-myeloablative (NMA) allogeneic donor SCT for patients with relapsed lymphoma is associated with lower treatment-related mortality (TRM). However, the impact of conditioning intensity on post transplant infections remains unclear. We evaluated infections in 141 consecutive patients with lymphoma who were allografted using NMA (n=76) or myeloablative (MA;(More)
The utility of imatinib in either the pre- or post-transplant period for Ph chromosome-positive (Ph+) ALL is uncertain. In addition, there have been recent concerns regarding imatinib and cardiac toxicity. We investigated the outcome of 32 patients with Ph+ ALL who received an allo-hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) at the University of Minnesota between(More)
The goal of this work was to evaluate concordance between (a) actual flow cytometric crossmatch (FCXM) that is performed by the OPO laboratory servicing our transplant center and (b) virtual XM (vXM) prediction based on antibody identification by solid-phase methods performed in our laboratory. A total of 1586 FCXM, performed between June 2007 and September(More)
Tet methylcytosine dioxygenase 2 (TET2) gene mutations have recently been recognized in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the controversial prognostic significance of TET2 mutations in AML. Eight studies, covering 2552 patients with AML, were included in this analysis. Pooled hazard ratios (HRs) indicated that TET2(More)
