PURPOSE To develop guidelines for performing and interpreting positron emission tomography (PET) imaging for treatment assessment in patients with lymphoma both in clinical practice and in clinical trials. METHODS An International Harmonization Project (IHP) was convened to discuss standardization of clinical trial parameters in lymphoma. An imaging(More)
PURPOSE Radioimmunotherapy combines biologic and radiolytic mechanisms to target and destroy tumor cells, thus offering a needed therapeutic alternative for refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients. This phase III randomized study compares the novel radioimmunotherapy yttrium-90 ((90)Y) ibritumomab tiuxetan with a control immunotherapy, rituximab,(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this descriptive analysis of a large cohort of patients with Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) was to add to the understanding of the natural history, management, and outcome of this disease. METHODS Three hundred fourteen Mayo Clinic patients with histologically proven LCH were categorized into those patients with(More)
Extrapulmonary poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas can originate in the gastrointestinal tract, bladder, cervix, and prostate. These high-grade malignancies are characterized by aggressive histological features (high mitotic rate, extensive necrosis, and nuclear atypia) and a poor clinical prognosis. They are infrequently associated with(More)
PURPOSE Rituximab is commonly used as a single agent or in combination therapy for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Ibritumomab tiuxetan radioimmunotherapy targets the same antigen as rituximab and has demonstrated efficacy in rituximab-naïve NHL. This study evaluated ibritumomab tiuxetan in the treatment of rituximab-refractory follicular NHL. PATIENTS AND(More)
Approximately 60% of patients with diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (DLBCL) are curable with rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) chemoimmunotherapy. Epratuzumab (E) is an unlabeled anti-CD22 monoclonal antibody with efficacy in relapsed DLBCL. This phase 2 trial tested the safety and efficacy of(More)
PURPOSE Yttrium-90 ibritumomab tiuxetan (IDEC-Y2B8) is a murine immunoglobulin G1 kappa monoclonal antibody that covalently binds MX-DTPA (tiuxetan), which chelates the radioisotope yttrium-90. The antibody targets CD20, a B-lymphocyte antigen. A multicenter phase I/II trial was conducted to compare two doses of unlabeled rituximab given before radiolabeled(More)
Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare, slow-growing neoplasms characterized by their ability to store and secrete different peptides and neuroamines. Some of these substances cause specific clinical syndromes, whereas other may have elevated plasma or urine levels that are not associated with specific syndromes or symptom complexes Unfortunately, there is(More)
PURPOSE Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) with yttrium-90 ((90)Y)-labeled anti-CD20 antibody ((90)Y ibritumomab tiuxetan; Zevalin, IDEC Pharmaceuticals Corporation, San Diego, CA) has a high rate of tumor response in patients with relapsed or refractory, low-grade, follicular, or transformed B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). This study presents the safety data(More)
UNLABELLED Ibritumomab tiuxetan is an anti-CD20 murine IgG1 kappa monoclonal antibody (ibritumomab) conjugated to the linker-chelator tiuxetan, which securely chelates (111)In for imaging or dosimetry and (90)Y for radioimmunotherapy (RIT). Dosimetry and pharmacokinetic data from 4 clinical trials of (90)Y-ibritumomab tiuxetan RIT for relapsed or refractory(More)
