We analyzed the prognostic value of p53 mutations for response to chemotherapy and survival in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Mutations were detected by single-stranded conformation polymorphism (SSCP) analysis of exons 4 to 10 of the P53 gene, and confirmed by direct sequencing. A p53(More)
Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) is capable of stimulating breast cancer cell growth in vitro and the presence of IGF-1 receptors has been demonstrated in primary breast cancers. We determined plasma IGF-1 in a primary breast cancer population and in a control population. Radioimmunoassays were performed either directly on plasma, IGF-1 (NE), or after(More)
The relationship between the rhythm in reduced glutathione (GSH) and that in cisplatin (CDDP) toxicity was investigated in a total of 560 male B6D2F1 mice, using buthionine sulfoximine (BSO). GSH was measured by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) in four tissues, at each of six sampling times, 4 hr apart. A significant 24-hr rhythm was(More)
Carboplatin (CBDCA) and oxaliplatin (I-OHP) are non-nephrotoxic platinum (Pt) compounds, which exert their main respective toxicities on the bone marrow and on the intestinal mucosa in mice. Plasma and red blood cell (RBC) drug dispositions were investigated in 324 male B6D2F1 mice after a single IV injection of CBDCA (72 mg kg-1) or I-OHP (17 mg kg-1).(More)
The toxic effects and tissue uptake of both cisplatin and oxaliplatin--[(1R, 2R)-1,2-cyclohexanediamine-N,N'] [oxalato(2-)-O,O']platinum--were previously shown to vary similarly according to dosing time in mice. A 4-hour infusion of cisplatin resulted in fewer side effects and allowed administration of higher doses at 16 hours than at 4 hours in patients(More)
A large amplitude circadian rhythm in murine tolerance for the anticancer agent, carboplatin (cyclobutane dicarboxylatoplatinum II, CBDCA) was demonstrated. Two studies were performed in a total of 266 male B6D2F1 mice standardized by LD 12:12. In the first experiment CBDCA (80 mg/kg/day) was administered intravenously (iv) daily for three consecutive days(More)
PURPOSE To correlate the presence of p53 mutations and initial characteristics, response to chemotherapy, and survival in newly diagnosed Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) and Burkitt's acute lymphoblastic leukemia (L3 ALL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-eight patients with newly diagnosed BL or L3 ALL, most of whom were treated with very intensive regimens, including(More)
The antineoplastic activity of m-AMSA [4'-(9-acridinylamino)-methanesulfon-m-anisidide] has been related to its ability to produce oxygenated free radical during its oxidation to a quinonimine form, in the presence of cupric ions. It has been demonstrated here that the rate of the oxidation is greatly increased by the addition of bleomycin (Blm), another(More)
We quantified and studied the impact of post transfusional iron overload alone in post allogeneic HSCT. Median number of RBCs was 18. Ferritin was 532 mg/L. Liver iron content (LIC) was 117 mmoles/gdw. Correlation RBCs and ferritin was (r=0.81); RBCs and LIC was (r=0.84). The high ferritin group differed from normal ferritin group in terms of RBCs(More)
