To determine whether collagen content may be a determinant of the ultrasonic attenuation and backscatter in myocardium and to identify factors in the measurement of the backscatter coefficient needed for ultrasonic characterization of myocardium in vivo, two series of experiments were conducted. In the first series, the ultrasonic attenuation was measured(More)
BACKGROUND Less than 20% of patients with follicular lymphoma (FL) present with Ann Arbor Stage I or II disease at diagnosis. Numerous therapeutic options exist, however radiation therapy is considered the standard of care for early-stage disease based on single-institution or retrospective series. Our aim was to revisit the outcome of patients with(More)
Quantitative characterization of myocardial properties represent a rapidly emerging area of echocardiographic investigation. Because measurement of the ultrasonic integrated backscatter is theoretically applicable to analysis in vivo with reflected ultrasound, this study was performed to develop and evaluate a suitable method for measurement of quantitative(More)
The effect of pregnancy on the humoral immune response induced by Trypanosoma cruzi was studied in groups of chronically infected and pregnant mice (IP) or chronically infected and nonpregnant mice (INP) of strain BALB/c. Groups of noninfected and nonpregnant mice (NINP) or noninfected and pregnant mice (NIP) served as controls. The pregnant mice were(More)
Congenital tricuspid valve stenosis in the absence of other valvular abnormalities is rare. In this report we describe a patient with congenital tricuspid valve stenosis, ostium secundum atrial septal defect, and electrocardiographic left anterior fascicular block, who presented with paradoxical emboli. This case, as well as previous case reports, suggests(More)
We evaluated the combination of rituximab with chlorambucil in patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) not eligible for aggressive therapy. Fourteen patients (male/female: 9/5) were included (two newly diagnosed, 12 relapsed/refractory). The toxicities were neutropenia, thrombopenia and infection. Nine (64%) patients responded; five (36%) achieved complete(More)
This retrospective multicenter study in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase was undertaken to confirm the clinical relevance of imatinib plasma concentrations monitoring in daily practice. Forty-one patients, with 47 imatinib plasma measurements, were analyzed during treatment with imatinib given at a fixed 400mg daily dose. A(More)
We report the case of a patient who received two infusions of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) cryopreserved autologous peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPCs) after myeloablative chemotherapy for a relapsing lymphoma. A 49-year-old man presented an episode of tonic-clonic seizure over a few minutes after the start of each infusion and developed a profound and(More)
