Thrombohaemorrhagic complications are major clinical problems in the classical chronic Ph-negative myeloproliferative disorders (CMPDs), polycytaemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythaemia (ET) and idiopathic myelofibrosis (IMF), contributing significantly to morbidity and mortality. Pathophysiologically these disorders are characterized by clonal myeloproliferation, myeloaccumulation and a propensity to develop myelofibrosis and neoangiogenesis in both the bone marrow and spleen. Based upon in vitro and in vivo studies of the effects of statins (antithrombotic, antiproliferative, proapoptotic and antiangiogenic), this review focuses on the translation of these effects into potential clinical benefits of statin therapy in patients with CMPDs...

INTRODUCTION: Hydroxyurea (HU) is usually a well-tolerated antineoplastic agent, which is commonly used in the treatment of myeloproliferative disorders. Dermatological abnormalities are often seen in patients receiving long-term HU therapy. Leg ulcers have been reported occasionally. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We carried out a prospective and descriptive study of patients who developed leg ulcers while receiving HU therapy. RESULTS: Between 1...

BACKGROUND: Blood letting is an important form of treatment in some diseases, e.g. haemochromatosis and polycytaemia rubra vera. In our hospital, this treatment takes place in the blood bank. If the blood collected from these patients could be used for transfusion, it would help reduce the present blood shortage. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We examined the referral letters for all patients treated with blood letting during a twelve-month period in two hospitals to see how often the referrals gave information that would exclude the patient as a blood donor...

Even though the coexistence of rare clinical conditions may be coincidental, an association between thymoma and autoimmune diseases appears well-established, possibly mediated via T-lymphocytes. An unusual case of initial polycytaemia vera and the later diagnosis of a thymoma, and with this known associated diseases is presented.

Prealbumin, albumin, orosomucoid (including the cellular variant orosomucoid2), alpha 1-antitrypsin, haptoglobin and transferrin were quantified in 107 cell samples from acute and chronic myeloid leukaemia, seven polycytaemia, seven normal blood marrow and 56 normal blood leukocytes by crossed immunoelectrophoresis. By statistical multivariate analyses, the individual plasma proteins and their combined protein patterns were correlated with the diagnoses and it was demonstrated that acute leukaemia cell samples contained significantly different protein patterns compared with the other diagnostic groups and normal controls...
