High dose melphalan (HDM, 140 mg/m2 i.v.) has been evaluated in 58 patients under 63 years with multiple myeloma. Among previously untreated patients 11/41 (27%) entered a complete remission (CR: no measurable myeloma protein and a normal bone marrow) and 21 (51%) entered a partial remission (more than 50% reduction in myeloma protein and improvement in all(More)
We report three pregnancies with successful outcomes in two women following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for acute leukaemia using high dose melphalan alone as conditioning therapy. The increasing application and success of BMT together with the instigation of conditioning regimens that do not include total body irradiation should increase(More)
Autologous bone marrow and/or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation is being performed increasingly frequently as a treatment for Hodgkin's disease. While patients with refractory disease can sometimes be cured, the results are better in patients who are still chemotherapy sensitive. The use of high dose therapy as part of the primary treatment for(More)
Between June 1981 and April 1986 63 patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) in first remission and HLA-identical sibling donors were entered into a prospective study comparing cyclophosphamide (CY) + total body irradiation (TBI) with melphalan + TBI as conditioning therapy prior to transplantation. Thirty-six patients received CY/TBI and 27 received(More)
Four patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) that was refractory to interferon alpha (two patients) or imatinib mesylate (two patients), and who lacked donors for allogeneic stem cell transplantation, received autotransplants followed by infusions of ex vivo costimulated autologous T cells. At day +30 (about 14 days after T-cell infusion), the mean(More)
BACKGROUND Intragastric creaming and droplet size of fat emulsions may affect intragastric behavior and gastrointestinal and satiety responses. OBJECTIVES We tested the hypotheses that gastrointestinal physiologic responses and satiety will be increased by an increase in intragastric stability and by a decrease in fat droplet size of a fat emulsion.
