NEJM hematology

Lars H Breimer, Torbjörn K Nilsson, Michael E Breimer
Declaration of conflicts of interest (COI, understood mainly as financial) in medical publications is long established. Most journals refer only to the guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) but not to those of the WAME (World Association of Medical Editors). We surveyed 17 journals and found only one (BJOG), which explicitly mentioned "religious interest" as an example of a possible COI and one other journal included "personal belief" (Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of India) as a COI...

The results of recent clinical trials for the management of limited-stage Hodgkin lymphoma have led to considerable debate, especially regarding the role of radiation therapy. This review highlights those recent trials and provides perspectives regarding their interpretation from a radiation oncologist and a hematologist. The trial protocol is available at

The representation of medical disciplines in leading journals may provide valuable information on their respective importance for both researchers and funding agencies. We were interested in the scientific contribution of infectious diseases to leading medical journals and their ranking compared to other medical disciplines. Original articles and short communications in three leading medical journals from 2003 to 2009 were analyzed by contributing medical discipline and by nation: The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), The Lancet, and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)...

BACKGROUND: Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) improve clinical care through evidence-based results. Guidelines exist for RCT result reporting, but specific details of therapeutic administration promote clinical application and reproduction of the trial design. We assess the reporting methodology in RCTs published in major oncology journals. METHODS: Ten essential elements of RCT reporting were identified and included drug name, dose, route, cycle length, maximum number of cycles, premedication, growth factor support, patient monitoring parameters, and dosing adjustments for hematologic and organ-specific toxicity...

Mitochondrial disorders are caused by mutations of nuclear or mitochondrial DNA encoded genes involved in oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). Mutations in these critical genes are associated with specific clinical syndromes with diverse presentations (DiMauro and Schon, 2003. NEJM 348, 2656; Hart et al., 2002. Mitochondrial Disorders in Neurology). Since mitochondria are present in many of our organs and play a key role in energy metabolism, mitochondrial encephalomyopathies often present as multisystem disorders which may manifest with neurologic, cardiac, endocrine, gastrointestinal, hepatic, renal and/or hematologic involvement (DiMauro and Bonilla, 1997...

It was reported from a previous randomized trial (NEJM 329: 1848, 1993) that a moderate increase in the initial dose of cyclophosphamide and cisplatin improves the survival of patients with LDSCLC. Rapid administration of several active agents over a short treatment period, such as the CODE regimen, is a potentially usefully strategy for increasing the initial dose intensity. Based on these findings, we conducted a pilot study of CODE (C: 25 mg/m2, day 1, weeks 1-4, O: 1 mg/m2, day 1, weeks 2, 4, D: 40 mg/m2, day 1, weeks 1, 3, E: 80 mg/m2, days 1-3, weeks 1, 3) chemotherapy for the first 4 weeks followed by PE therapy (P: 80 mg/m2, day 1, E: 100 mg/m2, days 1-3, for 3 cycles) with concurrent TRT (1...

It has been reported that the administration of interferon alpha-2b is of potential benefit in the treatment of mastocytosis based on a single patient study (NEJM, Feb 27, 1992, 326(9):619-623). Following this report, we administered interferon alpha-2b at a dose of 4 to 5 million units per square meter of body surface area for at least 12 months to one patient with mastocytosis with an associated hematologic disorder (patient 1), one patient with aggressive systemic mastocytosis (patient 2), and one patient with indolent mastocytosis (patient 3)...

This study evaluated the relationship between benzene exposure and low white blood cell (WBC) and red blood cell (RBC) counts. Hematologic screening data collected over a 35 year period at a rubber hydrochloride manufacturing plant were analyzed; an increased risk of leukemia had been demonstrated previously among workers at the plant [Infante et al. (1977).' Lancet 2:76-78; Rinsky et al. (1981): Am J Ind Med 2:217-45 (1987): NEJM 316:1044-1050/. Hematologic screening data were available for 657 of 1,037 (63...
