PURPOSE Since liposomal encapsulation of anticancer drugs may enhance antitumor activity while reducing toxicity in vitro, we evaluated liposomally encapsulated daunorubucin (DaunoXome; Vestar, Inc, San Dimas, CA) for safety, pharmacokinetics, and potential efficacy in patients with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma (AIDS-KS). PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty(More)
PURPOSE Bendamustine HCl is a bifunctional mechlorethamine derivative with clinical activity in the treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. This study evaluated bendamustine plus rituximab in 67 adults with relapsed, indolent B-cell or mantle cell lymphoma without documented resistance to prior rituximab. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients received rituximab 375(More)
BACKGROUND Proteins of the BCL-2 family regulate clonal selection and survival of lymphocytes, and are frequently overexpressed in lymphomas. Navitoclax is a targeted high-affinity small molecule that inhibits the anti-apoptotic activity of BCL-2 and BCL-XL. We aimed to assess the safety and antitumour activity of navitoclax in patients with lymphoid(More)
PURPOSE To compare outcomes of patients with HIV-Burkitt's lymphoma (HIV-BL) and HIV-diffuse large-cell lymphoma (HIV-DLCL) after treatment with CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) or M-BACOD (methotrexate, bleomycin, cyclophosphamide, etoposide) in pre-highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) versus HAART eras. PATIENTS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Reduced doses of cytotoxic chemotherapy or standard-dose therapy plus a myeloid colony-stimulating factor decreases hematologic toxicity and its complications in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma associated with infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). However, the effect of reducing the doses of cytotoxic chemotherapeutic agents(More)
Anthracyclines are valuable cytotoxic agents in cancer treatment. However, their usefulness is limited by cumulative dose-dependent cardiotoxicity that may manifest as life-threatening congestive heart failure. To avoid cardiotoxicity, the use of doxorubicin is typically capped at a safe cumulative dose. Liposomal formulations may reduce cardiac risks(More)
BACKGROUND Cladribine (2-chlorodeoxyadenosine) is a purine nucleoside analog with cytotoxic activity against both resting and proliferating cells. Clinical studies with cladribine have reported antitumor activity against various hematologic malignancies. METHODS The authors studied responses to cladribine among patients with low and intermediate grade(More)
PURPOSE To assess the efficacy and toxicity of liposomal daunorubicin administered as a two-hour intravenous infusion to patients with relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Eligible patients had relapsed or refractory NHL with measurable or evaluable disease, and low grade, select intermediate grade, or mantle cell(More)
PURPOSE To compare the prognostic factors for survival and the validity of the International Prognostic Index (IPI) in patients with HIV-related diffuse large-cell lymphoma (HIV-DLCL) treated with curative intent in the pre-highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) era versus the HAART era. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 192 patients(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of liposomal doxorubicin (Myocet; Medeus Pharma Ltd, Herts,UK) when substituted for doxorubicin in the CHOP regimen (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) in patients with newly diagnosed AIDS-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (AIDS-NHL). Secondary objectives were to assess the impact of HIV viral(More)
