PURPOSE To address early and late treatment failures in older patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), we designed a two-stage randomized trial of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) versus rituximab plus CHOP (R-CHOP), with a second random assignment to maintenance rituximab (MR) or observation in responding(More)
BACKGROUND AND METHODS MOPP (mechlorethamine, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone) has been the standard treatment for Hodgkin's disease for almost 20 years. In a randomized, multicenter trial, we compared three regimens of primary systemic therapy for newly diagnosed advanced Hodgkin's disease in Stages IIIA2, IIIB, and IVA or IVB: (1) MOPP alone(More)
Fifteen patients (11 males, four females; median age 57) manifested a disease characterized by (1) the histopathologic features of Castleman's disease, plasma cell type, in lymph node biopsies; (2) predominantly lymphadenopathic disease, involving multiple, preferentially peripheral nodal groups; (3) varied manifestations of multisystemic involvement (such(More)
We present a power spectrum analysis of the final 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey, employing a direct Fourier method. The sample used comprises 221 414 galaxies with measured redshifts. We investigate in detail the modelling of the sample selection, improving on previous treatments in a number of respects. A new angular mask is derived, based on revisions to the(More)
PURPOSE In a series of trials, doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine (ABVD) and mechlorethamine, vincristine, procarbazine, prednisone, doxorubicin, bleomycin, and vinblastine (MOPP/ABV) have been identified as effective treatments for Hodgkin's disease. We compared these regimens as initial chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease. PATIENTS AND(More)
BACKGROUND This article reviews the salient pathologic and clinical features of 171 patients with Stage III-IV disease who were 60 years of age or older who were treated on four Hodgkin disease (HD) protocols from 1969 to 1988. METHODS Pretherapy sections were reviewed centrally for correlation of the histologic classification with anatomic sites of(More)
PURPOSE To define the activity and feasibility of brief-duration high-intensity chemotherapy for adults with small noncleaved, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (SNC) and the L3 variant of acute lymphocytic leukemia (L3 ALL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy-five adults with either SNC or L3 ALL (median age, 44 years) were treated with an aggressive regimen that(More)
PURPOSE To study the histopathologic findings, clinical course, and therapeutic outcome of patients who developed a lymphoproliferative disorder after undergoing solid organ transplantation. PATIENTS AND METHODS A series of 26 patients who developed a lymphoproliferative disorder after solid organ transplant during a 27-year period were studied. RESULTS(More)
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey has now measured in excess of 160 000 galaxy redshifts. This paper presents the power spectrum of the galaxy distribution, calculated using a direct FFT-based technique. We argue that, within the k-space region 0.02 < ∼ k < ∼ 0.15 hMpc, the shape of this spectrum should be close to that of the linear density perturbations(More)
