The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to investigate the effect of a 4- to 6-week multimodal program of exercise, relaxation and psychoeducation on physical capacity, functional performance and quality of life (QOL) in allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) adult recipients. In all, 42 patients were randomized to a supervised(More)
Substantial physical and functional deconditioning and diminished psychological wellbeing are all potential adverse effects of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety and benefits (physical and functional capacity) of a 4–6 week supervised and structured mixed-type exercise, progressive(More)
This investigation illustrated the causes and reasons for women's choice of pregnancy termination and various aspects of that decision making process. During a 1-year period (1977-78), 431 women applying for pregnancy termination were interviewed. Simultaneously, 441 pregnant women and 485 representatively chosen women ages 15-49 from the district served(More)
Three patients with disseminated, relapsed Ewing's sarcoma refractory to conventional chemotherapy were treated with high-dose melphalan, cyclophosphamide pretreatment, and bone marrow autotransplantation. Two patients achieved complete remission and one achieved partial remission. The two patients who achieved complete remission remain disease-free at 12(More)
Seventeen patients were treated with high-dose melphalan with autologous bone marrow transplant (ABMT) and cyclophosphamide pretreatment. All of the patients had marrow reconstitution. Although there was one death caused by infection, high-dose melphalan with ABMT causes toxicity that is generally acceptable, and can achieve a high-response rate, but with(More)
72 patients severely immunocompromised by their underlying disease (marrow aplasia, acute leukaemia, or solid tumour) or by the treatment they were receiving, or both, were randomised to receive antifungal prophylaxis with either oral ketoconazole or conventional doses of oral amphotericin B and nystatin. All patients also had gut decontamination with(More)
The synthetic non-steroidal antioestrogen nafoxidine (U-11, 100A) was given by mouth to 52 women with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer, in 85% of whom the disease had become resistant to, or relapsed after, previous endocrine treatment. The objective response rate (complete or partial regression of disease) among 48 cases treated for at least(More)
Studies of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) and plasma from patients with malignant lymphoma [Hodgkin's disease (HD) and non Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL)] show that plasma soluble interleukin 2 receptor (sIL2R) levels are closely linked with disease status [normal volunteers (n = 15) 402 +/- 158 u/ml; patients with Hodgkin's disease in remission (n = 4) 525(More)
