Life expectancy of young adults with follicular lymphoma.
Biella, Italy. In Ann Oncol, 11 Oct 2015
RESULTS: Patients younger than 40 had a lower incidence of elevated LDH, high beta2-microglobulin and high risk Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (FLIPI) score, whereas bone marrow involvement, bulky and disseminated lymphadenopathy were more frequent.
Molecular and prognostic heterogeneity of microsatellite-unstable colorectal cancer.
Seoul, South Korea. In World J Gastroenterol, May 2014
Here, we have reviewed and discussed the molecular and prognostic features of MSI-H CRCs, as well as several putative prognostic or predictive molecular markers, including HSP110 expression, beta2-microglobulin mutations, myosin 1a expression, CDX2/CK20 expression, SMAD4 expression, CIMP status and LINE-1 methylation levels.
Predictors for the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in primary Sjögren's syndrome.
Bergen, Norway. In Presse Med, 2012
Among the established predictors for lymphoma development in SS, we recognize recurrent or permanent swelling of major salivary glands (SG), lymphadenopathy, cryoglobulinemia, splenomegaly, low complement levels of C4 and C3, lymphopenia, skin vasculitis or palpable purpura, M-component in serum or urine, peripheral neuropathy, glomerulonephritis and elevated beta2-microglobulin.
Osteo-articular manifestations of amyloidosis.
Paris, France. In Best Pract Res Clin Rheumatol, 2012
The amyloidosis responsible for osteo-articular manifestations are the AL immunoglobulin amyloidosis, the beta2-microglobulin amyloidosis in patients under haemodialysis and finally the amyloidosis of transthyretin (genetic and senile).
