Desmoid-type fibromatosis (DTF) is a rare soft tissue tumor with fibroblastic features affecting two to four individuals per million population per year. Despite its bland microscopic appearance, the tumor behaves aggressively. Although unable to metastasize, DTF tends to recur and local recurrences in anatomically critical sites can be fatal.(More)
The intraphagocytic killing of Escherichia coli, Serratia marcescens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Salmonella typhi by ciprofloxacin (0.1, 1 and 5 microg/ml) within human neutrophils with intact and impaired (by phenylbutazone treatment) O2-dependent killing mechanisms was studied and compared with the extracellular killing in the same medium of the(More)
The effect of pretreatment of human polymorphonuclear leukocites (PMNs), for 30 min with fluconazole (0.1, 1, 5 and 50 microgram/ml) and itraconazole (0.05, 0.5 and 5 microgram/ml) on phagocytosis and generation of free radicals (superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide) was studied in vitro. Phorbol miristate acetate (200 nM) was used as a stimulant. The(More)
The antibacterial activity of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) is based on the production of superoxide anion and H(2)O(2) in the respiratory burst and can be impaired in different ways. The combination of an antibacterial agent and an antiinflammatory drug is quite common in immunodepressed patients whose respiratory burst of PMN could be impaired. In(More)
The uptake of quinolones is a recently defined pharmacokinetic parameter which is increasing in importance in clinical practice, especially for immunocompromised patients whose polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs) have their bactericidal systems impaired, or in infections due to bacteria able to survive in the phagocytes. In both situations, antibiotics(More)
