PURPOSE NGR-hTNF exploits the tumor-homing peptide asparagine-glycine-arginine (NGR) for selectively targeting TNF-α to an aminopeptidase N overexpressed on cancer endothelial cells. Preclinical synergism with cisplatin was displayed even at low doses. This study primarily aimed to explore the safety of low-dose NGR-hTNF combined with cisplatin in(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a highly vascularised and poor-prognosis tumour. NGR-hTNF is a vascular-targeting agent consisting of human tumour necrosis factor-alpha fused to the tumour-homing peptide NGR, which is able to selectively bind an aminopeptidase N overexpressed on tumour blood vessels. METHODS Twenty-seven patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Clarithromycin displays immunomodulatory and antineoplastic properties. As single agent, this macrolide is associated with tumor responses in anecdotal cases of relapsed/refractory extranodal marginal zone lymphoma (rrEMZL), with a putative dose-dependent effect. Tolerability and activity of high-dose clarithromycin (HD-K) in patients with rrEMZL(More)
BACKGROUND Whereas focal and diffuse brain damage on conventional MRI is seen in patients with neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus (NSLE), the spinal cord seems to be rarely involved. Diffusion tensor (DT) MRI provides information on the patterns of tissue disruption of the central nervous system, which may go undetected by conventional MRI. (More)
