Multiple myeloma is preceded by an asymptomatic phase, comprising monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance and smoldering myeloma. Compared to the former, smoldering myeloma has a higher and non-uniform rate of progression to clinical myeloma, reflecting a subset of patients with higher risk. We evaluated the gene expression profile of smoldering(More)
As part of Total Therapy (TT) 3b, baseline marrow aspirates were subjected to two-color flow cytometry of nuclear DNA content and cytoplasmic immunoglobulin (DNA/CIG) as well as plasma cell gene expression profiling (GEP). DNA/CIG-derived parameters, GEP and standard clinical variables were examined for their effects on overall survival (OS) and(More)
Multiple myeloma (MM) is a heterogeneous disease with high-risk patients progressing rapidly despite treatment. Various definitions of high-risk MM are used and we reported that gene expression profile (GEP)-defined high risk was a major predictor of relapse. In spite of our best efforts, the majority of GEP70 high-risk patients relapse and we have noted(More)
The authors present a case of a 51-year-old woman with endometriosis who developed immune thrombocytopenic purpura. Her platelets dropped to 2×10(9)/l, and she had haemorrhage into her right endometrioma causing a large pelvic haematoma.

CMV appendicitis is a rare complication; and we are reporting the first case to our knowledge of CMV(More)
Relapse of Hodgkin lymphoma after autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (autologous HCT) is a major therapeutic challenge. Its management, at least in younger patients, traditionally involves salvage chemotherapy aiming to achieve disease remission followed by consolidation with allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allogeneic HCT) in(More)
