Amblyopia is one of the most common visual disorders in children. Current therapy of amblyopia is an occlusion therapy of the stronger eye with an occlusion patch until the best corrected visual acuity is achieved. The success of occlusion therapy essentially depends on the compliance of the children and their parents. There is a commercially available 8 × 12 mm small TheraMon microsensor (TheraMon(®)-Chip, MC Technology GmbH). This sensor allows a simple objective documentation of the therapy compliance of patches and glasses...

Nelarabine, a water soluble prodrug of 9-β-D-arabinofuranosylguanine (ara-G), is a T-cell specific purine nucleoside analogue. Given its activity in relapsed and refractory T acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and T lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-LBL), we sought to define its role in the frontline treatment of adult patients. Therefore, we conducted a single arm phase 2 study to determine the safety and efficacy of nelarabine in combination with hyper-CVAD in newly diagnosed patients. For induction/consolidation, patients received eight cycles of hyper-CVAD alternating with high-dose methotrexate and cytarabine plus two cycles of nelarabine given at a dose of 650 mg/m2 intravenously daily for 5 days...
