Between May 1980 and April 1987, 49 children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in isolated testicular and first leukemia relapse (ITR) were enrolled in the Associazione Italiana Ematologia ed Oncologia Pediatrica (AIEOP) multicenter study REC80-ITR. According to the Rome Workshop criteria, 77% were at standard and 23% at high initial prognostic risk.(More)
Eight patients affected by neuroblastoma were treated with 18 courses of 131I-meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG). They all had been judged as "nonresponders" to conventional treatments. Six had stage IV disease: of these, five, with massive marrow involvement, had poor results, mainly because of marrow depression; one, whose marrow had been previously purged(More)
This paper reports late effects and health status of 198 children who had cancer or leukemia diagnosed under 2 years of age and their therapies electively withdrawn. This series (92 neuroblastoma [NBL], 57 Wilms' tumor [WT], 46 acute lymphoblastic leukemia [ALL], and 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma) was followed for 1-12 years after discontinuation of therapy.(More)
The clinical features of 30 children with IV-S neuroblastoma have been reviewed. They were treated at 11 Italian pediatric institutions in the period 1970-1981. Patients with IV-S neuroblastoma comprise 6.1% of all the neuroblastoma cases observed during that period. The age at diagnosis ranged from birth to 11 months (mean, 3 months). The distribution of(More)
Response to treatment with daily intramuscularly administered crude calf thymic extract (Suppressin) in 11 patients with Langerhan's histiocytosis (L.H.) is reported. In ten patients, T-lymphocytic subsets were studied before starting immunotherapy: OKT3 positive and OKT4 positive cells were reduced in four patients; OKT8 positive cells were reduced in two(More)
In this retrospective multicentric study, we report on early deaths (ie, those that occurred during the first month of treatment) in a total of 943 newly diagnosed ALL pediatric patients registered from 1976 to 1981 at 21 centers of the AIL- AIEOP . Objectives of this study were as follows: (1) to verify the incidence and the cause of early death in a wide(More)

The median ages of the patients with HPB and HPC at diagnosis were(More)
