OBJECTIVE: Myelofibrosis (MF) is a chronic myeloproliferative neoplasm (CMPN) characterized by clonal proliferation of the pluripotent hematopoietic germinal cell, fibrosis, and bone marrow angiogenesis, and with extra medullary hematopoiesis. Lenalidomide is an immunomodulatory and antiangiogenic agent that has shown clinical benefit in MF patients in several phase II clinical trials. In this work, we present the results of the retrospective assessment of a series of 32 patients diagnosed with MF that received treatment with lenalidomide within the Spanish program of hospital compassionate use...

The molecular pathogenesis of primary mielofibrosis (PMF) is still largely unknown. Recently, single-nucleotide polymorphism arrays (SNP-A) allowed for genome-wide profiling of copy-number alterations and acquired uniparental disomy (aUPD) at high-resolution. In this study we analyzed 20 PMF patients using the Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0 in order to identify novel recurrent genomic abnormalities. We observed a complex karyotype in all cases, detecting all the previously reported lesions (del(5q), del(20q), del(13q), +8, aUPD at 9p24 and abnormalities on chromosome 1)...

By using novel molecular markers, it is possible to gain information on both the classification and the pathophysiology of the chronic myeloproliferative neoplasia (MPN). In a group of 36 Mexican mestizo patients with MPN, we studied five molecular markers: The BCR/ABL1 fusion gene, the JAK2 V617F mutation, the JAK2 exon 12 mutations, the MPL W515L mutation and the MPL W515K mutation; 17 patients with essential thrombocythemia (ET), eight with polycythemia vera (PV), four with primary mielofibrosis (MF), five with undifferentiated MPN, one with primary erythrocytosis and one with familial thrombocytosis...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
