Serum neuron-specific enolase levels are upregulated in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and are predictive of prognosis.

We explored the relationship between neuron-specific enolase (NSE) levels and the clinical features of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Seventy ALL...

DPYD gene polymorphisms are associated with risk and chemotherapy prognosis in pediatric patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
We aimed to investigate the association between dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPYD) gene polymorphisms and the risk of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and its prognosis after chemotherapy. A total of 147 pediatric ALL patients diagnos

Selected miRNA levels are associated with IKZF1 microdeletions in pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
The clinical outcome of children with high-risk relapsed B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL) is poor. The present study assessed the utility and prognostic value of selected microRNA (miRNA/miR) in BCP-ALL. The changes in the expr

CD1d levels in peripheral blood of patients with acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
The antitumor effect of natural killer T cells has been reported in several studies analyzing the expression of CD1d on antigen-presenting cells (APCs). Therefore, the present study questioned whether APCs may be abnormal in the peripheral blood (PB)

High serum levels of Dickkopf-1 are associated with a poor prognosis in prostate cancer patients.
The Wnt inhibitor Dickkopf-1 (DKK-1) has been linked to the progression of malignant bone disease by impairing osteoblast activity. In addition, there is increasing data to suggest direct tumor promoting effects of DKK-1. The prognostic role of DKK-1

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia: are Egyptian children adherent to maintenance therapy?
BACKGROUND, AIMS, SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Poor adherence to oral maintenance chemotherapy can cause relapse of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). A multicenter study for the evaluation of adherence to oral 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) maintenance chemothera

Colony-stimulating factors for chemotherapy-related febrile neutropenia are associated with improved prognosis in adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Colony-stimulating factors (CSF) have been widely used to prevent febrile neutropenia associated with chemotherapy. Due to the high intensity of chemotherapy in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), CSF as a crucial component of supportive care has pla

[email protected] translocations are prevalent in teenagers and young adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and are associated with a poor outcome.
To determine the prevalence and prognostic association of immunoglobulin heavy chain ([email protected]) translocations in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

Overexpression of EPS8 is associated with poor prognosis in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Molecular markers have become an invaluable tool in monitoring disease status particularly of leukemias, as bone marrow samples can be easily collected for analysis during all stages of disease development including diagnosis, treatment, and follow-u
