This e-book used to be initially released ahead of 1923, and represents a duplicate of a big ancient paintings, keeping an identical structure because the unique paintings. whereas a few publishers have opted to follow OCR (optical personality reputation) know-how to the method, we think this results in sub-optimal effects (frequent typographical blunders, unusual characters and complicated formatting) and doesn't accurately look after the ancient personality of the unique artifact.

Revision of the Palearctic Chaetocnema Species (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Galerucinae: Alticini)

75 Palearctic Chaetocnema species are revised. Seven new species are defined: C. belka, Ch. bergeali, C. eastafghanica, C. franzi, C. igori, C. lubischevi, and C. tbilisiensis. the subsequent 9 synonymies are proposed: Biodontocnema Biondi 2000 = Chaetocnema Stephens 1831; C. altisocia Chen & Wang 1981 = C.

Unrelated Donor Stem Cell Transplantation (UD-SCT) In Philadelphia chromosome positive disease UD-SCT in first remission is regarded as standard therapy in the absence of a matched sibling donor. The alternative for those lacking a sibling donor in this situation is an auto-HSCT. A retrospective comparison performed by the IBMTR of patients treated with either of these therapeutic modalities for ALL did not demonstrate a superior survival for UD-HSCT despite a demonstrated lower relapse risk due to an extremely high TRM which approached >40% [21].

Those receiving a sibling allo-HSCT had significantly better outcomes (5 year overall survival, 45 vs. 23%) [17]. In the Goelam-02 study [18], only high-risk patients under the age of 50 years were offered allo-SCT in first remission if a HLA-matched sibling donor was available, those lacking a donor were assigned to auto-HSCT. A clear survival advantage was observed in the allo-HSCT group at 6 years. Other studies have failed to demonstrate improved outcomes from allo-SCT in first remission. Two case-controlled studies performed by the IBMTR showed no overall advantage for transplant over chemotherapy even when stratifying for risk [19, 20] However, owing to the retrospective nature of these studies and inherent selection biases, it is difficult to arrive at any definitive conclusions from these studies.

With this approach, even though a majority of patients (80–92%) achieve complete remission, only one-third of patient or less are long-term survivors. The long-term survival has not changed for over a decade [1–7]. Thus, consolidation of remission is vital in achieving long-term survival in this disease. Intensive myeloablative therapy followed by allogeneic stem cell transplant is an alternative to conventional protracted consolidation/maintenance chemotherapy, offering the advantage of delivering a maximum dose intensive regime with the added benefit of a potential graft versus leukemia (GVL) effect.
