Arsenic trioxide has been shown to be effective in treating acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), with minimal overall toxicity reported to date. A phase I/II study was initiated in June 1998 using arsenic trioxide for relapsed APL to determine the maximum tolerated or minimal effective dose and to determine the efficacy of treatment at that dose. Ten(More)
BACKGROUND A phase II trial of dose-adjusted etoposide, prednisone, vincristine, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and rituximab (DA-EPOCH-R) from the National Cancer Institute showed promising activity in untreated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. The Cancer and Leukemia Group B conducted a study to determine if these results could be reproduced in a(More)
Recent studies have suggested that the presence of iron overload prior to stem cell transplantation is associated with decreased survival. Within these studies, the criteria used to define iron overload have varied considerably. Given the lack of consensus regarding the definition of iron overload in the transplant setting, we sought to methodically examine(More)
A reciprocal chromosome translocation between 13q12 and 8p11 is the consistent cytogenetic abnormality seen in a nonspecific myeloproliferative disorder that is associated with T-cell leukemia/lymphoma and peripheral blood eosinophilia. Detailed molecular analyses of the translocation breakpoints associated with this rearrangement have not been reported to(More)
We report our experience from a clinical trial of autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) in the treatment of 30 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) using monoclonal antibody (MoAb) and complement-treated bone marrow. All patients were in complete remission (CR) at the time of transplant: 6 patients were in first CR, 18 in second CR, and 6 in(More)
The authors use stock return data to investigate the effects of the First Executive (FE) failure on other life insurance firms. In contrast to previous studies, they explicitly test for the separate effects of individual (retail) and institutional customer responses. The announcement of an accounting charge for junk-bond losses by First Executive(More)
PURPOSE The lipoate derivative CPI-613 is a first-in-class agent that targets mitochondrial metabolism. This study determined the effects of CPI-613 on mitochondrial function and defined the MTD, pharmacokinetics, and safety in patients with relapsed or refractory hematologic malignancies. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Human leukemia cell lines were exposed to(More)
