PURPOSE Rituximab is a chimeric antibody (Ab) directed against the cluster designated (CD) 20 antigen found on normal and malignant B cells. Rituximab activity has been associated with complement-mediated cytotoxicity, Ab-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), and induction of apoptosis. Recent studies performed in severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID)(More)
The promyelocytic blast crisis is a rare form of transformation during the evolution of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML). We report a case of promyelocytic blast crisis with t(15;17) in addition to t(9;22). The morphology and immunophenotype of the blasts were similar to those seen in acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL). The t(15;17) was confirmed by FISH.(More)
In a randomized study with 234 previously untreated patients with multiple myeloma, 129 were treated with melphalan (8 mg/m2 perorally for four days) and prednisone (40 mg/m2 perorally for seven days, both every four weeks) and 105 with melphalan and prednisone at the same doses plus cyclophosphamide (600 mg/m2 intravenously every four weeks), MeCCNU (100(More)
An update of two consecutive randomized studies in previously untreated multiple myeloma was performed. The first study (10-M-73) began in 1973; 150 patients were treated with melphalan and prednisone (MP) or semustine, cyclophosphamide, and prednisone (MeCP). In a second randomized study (3-M-77), begun in 1977, 260 patients were treated with MP or(More)
This experiment examined the effects of intraperitoneal (i.p.) clozapine (CLZ) compared to haloperidol (HAL) on operant responding for heat reinforcement in a cold environment (-8 degrees C). Three doses of CLZ (1, 3 and 5 mg/kg) were found to dose-dependently increase responding for heat while lowering core temperature (T(c)) only at the highest dose.(More)
We report here a case of nonhepatosplenic gammadelta T-cell lymphoma with undescribed initial localization in testis, without hepatosplenomegaly or adenopathies, and subsequent development in the maxillary sinus. The maxillar mass biopsy revealed a T-cell infiltration, and its immunologic characterization by flow cytometry showed a gammadelta T-cell(More)
The effect of oil-extracted astaxanthin from the red crab or langostilla (Pleuroncodes planipes) on the growth and pigmentation of forty five rainbow trouts (Oncorhynchus mykiss) was investigated by feeding a test diet supplemented with 75 mg/kg of astaxanthin during six weeks and compared with a control diet. The oil-extraction process of the pigment is(More)
