Influence of aberrant myeloid expression on acute lymphoblastic leukemia in children and adolescents from Maranhão, Brazil
The aim of this study was to evaluate myeloid expression in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in children and adolescents who had been referred to the Oncology Department in a hospital in the State of Maranhão based on demographic, laboratory, and clinical data. Myeloid expression was evaluated in 65 patients under 18 years of age who were diagnosed with morphological, cytochemical, and immunophenotypes of ALL. Demographic, laboratory (hemogram), and clinical variables were obtained from medical records.
Serum lipid abnormalities are not associated with apoB 3' VNTR polymorphism in nephrotic children
Apolipoprotein B (apoB) gene 3' variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR) is highly variable, and therefore can be an informative marker for associative analysis of lipid metabolism. This is the first report focusing on a possible association of apoB VNTR polymorphism with nephrotic hyperlipidemia. Genomic DNA was extracted from 500 children with primary nephrotic syndrome (PNS) and 500 healthy controls. The apoB genotype was determined by PCR analysis.
