Tumor immunotherapy should increase both the number of T cells that kill the tumor and the likelihood that those cells are activated at the tumor site. Bispecific monoclonal antibodies (Bi-mAbs) were designed that bound to a Hodgkin's tumor-associated antigen (CD30) on the tumor and to either CD3 or CD28 on the T cell. Immunodeficient mice were cured of(More)
The objective of this study was to assess toxicity and feasibility of achieving engraftment of allogeneic blood progenitor cells following nonmyeloablative conditioning according to the FCIE protocol (fludarabine 25 mg/m(2)/day, days -7 to -3; cyclophosphamide 200 mg/m(2)/day, days -7 to -3; idarubicin 12 mg/m(2)/day, days -7 to -5; etoposide 250(More)
BACKGROUND To study the effects of deferring pegfilgrastim until day 4 on the reduction of chemotherapy-induced leukocytopenia. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients of age 61-80 years with aggressive lymphoma were randomly assigned to receive 6 mg pegfilgrastim on day 2 or 4 of a 2-week chemotherapy regimen (R-CHOP-14). RESULTS Two hundred and ninety-two and(More)
A search for narrow resonances in the dijet mass spectrum is performed using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.9 pb⁻¹ collected by the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Upper limits at the 95% confidence level are presented on the product of the resonance cross section, branching fraction into dijets, and acceptance, separately(More)
Results are presented from a search for heavy, right-handed muon neutrinos, N(μ), and right-handed W(R) bosons, which arise in the left-right symmetric extensions of the standard model. The analysis is based on a 5.0  fb(-1) sample of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, collected by the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. No(More)
The objective of the AML HD93 treatment trial was to evaluate the outcome in young adults with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) after postremission therapy was stratified according to cytogenetically defined risk. The rationales for the study design were based (i) on previous favorable results with high-dose cytarabine in AML with t(8;21), inv/t(16q22) and in(More)
To assess the association between symptomatic relapse of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and superinfection with enteropathogenic microorganisms, we determined prospectively the incidence of infections with enteropathogenic bacteria, protozoa, and helminths in patients with confirmed longstanding IBD. Sixty-four patients with IBD (49 with Crohn's disease(More)
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection was identified in 11 dogs. The infection was associated with surgical treatment especially orthopaedic surgery. Infection after traumatic wounding, and recurrent pyoderma was also seen. Oral antibiotic treatment improved or resolved the infection in nine of the 11 dogs, although the methicillin-resistant(More)
The natural killer cell-activating anti-CD16/CD30 bispecific monoclonal antibody (BiMAb) had shown efficacy in a Phase I/II trial of refractory Hodgkin's disease (HD). To gain additional information on clinical efficacy and to investigate the effects of different application schedules and the concomitant application of cytokines, we performed a second(More)
