PURPOSE Bevacizumab provides a survival benefit in first- and second-line metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). In a large, observational, bevacizumab treatment study (Bevacizumab Regimens: Investigation of Treatment Effects and Safety [BRiTE]) in patients who had mCRC, a longer-than-expected overall survival (OS) of 25.1 months was reported. The association(More)
Salvage of patients with relapsed and refractory Hodgkin disease (HD) with high-dose chemoradiotherapy (HDT) and autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) results in event-free survival (EFS) rates from 30% to 50%. Unfortunately, the reduction in toxicity associated with modern supportive care has improved EFS by only 5% to 10% and has not reduced the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of three oxaliplatin and fluoropyrimidine regimens, with or without bevacizumab, as first-line treatment for metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with histologically documented metastatic or recurrent CRC and no prior treatment for advanced disease were randomly assigned to mFOLFOX6(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy and toxicity of the cyclophosphamide and fludarabine (CF) regimen in patients with newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). Thirty patients with pathologically confirmed MCL were treated with the CF regimen. Ten (33%) had no prior therapy, six (20%) had one previous regimen,(More)
3536 Background: Bevacizumab (BV) prolongs overall survival and progression-free survival when added to standard chemotherapy for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). BRiTE is a large, community-based observational registry of patients with mCRC receiving BV plus first-line chemotherapy. Safety and efficacy information in unselected patients(More)
3510 Background: The addition of bevacizumab (bev) to fluorouracil-based combination chemotherapy results in statistically significant improvement in survival among patients (pts) with mCRC. This randomized, multicenter trial was designed to assess the safety, tolerability and efficacy of each of three oxaliplatin (OX) plus bolus (b), infusional, or oral(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate a chemotherapy regimen that consisted of ifosfamide administered as an infusion with bolus carboplatin, and etoposide (ICE) supported by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) for cytoreduction and stem-cell mobilization in transplant-eligible patients with primary refractory or relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). PATIENTS(More)
PURPOSE In the phase III study AVF2107g, bevacizumab (BV) demonstrated a survival benefit when added to irinotecan, fluorouracil, and leucovorin (IFL) in first-line metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). In a parallel phase III study, Intergroup N9741, oxaliplatin plus fluorouracil and leucovorin (FOLFOX) also demonstrated a survival benefit compared with(More)
High-dose chemoradiotherapy (HDT) with autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is the treatment of choice for patients with relapsed aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). However, its role in the treatment of patients with primary refractory disease is not well defined. The outcomes of 85 patients with primary refractory aggressive NHL who underwent(More)
3517 Background: Bevacizumab [Avastin (BV)], a recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody against VEGF, significantly prolongs overall survival (OS) when added to 1st-line chemotherapy for mCRC. BV joins 5-Fluorouracil/ leucovorin (5-FU/LV), irinotecan,(I) and oxaliplatin (Ox) as agents with demonstrated survival benefit in the treatment of mCRC. A recent(More)
