A total of 10 desmoplastic small round-cell tumour patients were treated by high-dose chemotherapy with stem cell support. After high-dose chemotherapy, no complete response conversion was obtained and EWS-WT1 fusion transcript detection was positive in the peripheral blood during follow-up in all patients. High-dose chemotherapy did not seem to change the(More)
Early T-cell reconstitution following allogeneic transplantation depends on the persistence and function of T cells that are adoptively transferred with the graft. Posttransplant cyclophosphamide (pt-Cy) effectively prevents alloreactive responses from unmanipulated grafts, but its effect on subsequent immune reconstitution remains undetermined. Here, we(More)
BACKGROUND NGR-hTNF exploits the peptide asparagine-glycine-arginine (NGR) for selectively targeting tumour necrosis factor (TNF) to CD13-overexpressing tumour vessels. Maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) of NGR-hTNF was previously established at 45 μg m(-2) as 1-h infusion, with dose-limiting toxicity being grade 3 infusion-related reactions. We explored further(More)
The effects of interleukin 16 (IL-16) on dendritic cell (DC) generation from human CD34(+) progenitor cells are not known. Here, we show that IL-16 added to a basal cocktail comprised of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), IL-4, Flt-3 ligand (Flt3L), and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) does induce the CD34(+) hematopoietic(More)
Our goal was to optimize use of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) after high-dose chemotherapy and autologous peripheral blood stem-cell transplantation in lymphoma patients, limiting G-CSF administration to patients infusing a suboptimal CD34(+) cell number. Of 124 consecutive patients with histologically proven Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's(More)
The mobilizing potential and therapeutic activity of ifosfamide/vinorelbine-containing regimens with G-CSF support were explored in patients with pretreated malignant lymphomas. Ten patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) received ifosfamide and vinorelbine, and 17 with Hodgkin's disease (HD) received ifosfamide, vinorelbine and gemcitabine (IGEV(More)
The aim of this pilot study was to exploit the graft-versus-tumor potential of allogeneic transplants while improving safety of the procedure. Twelve patients with advanced hematological malignancies and solid tumors underwent a low intensity conditioning regimen (fludarabine and cyclophosphamide) followed by an allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, a platform of T-cell replete haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (haplo-HSCT) using post-transplant cyclophosphamide (Cy) has shown high reproducibility and acceptable safety profile. METHOD This prospective cohort analysis allowed us to collect data on infections among 70 consecutive recipients of haplo-HSCT(More)
We designed a prospective study to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of tandem high-dose chemotherapy (HDCT) in the treatment of refractory or relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). Thirty-two patients were treated with salvage chemotherapy (IGEV, ifosfamide, gemcitabine, and vinorelbine) and chemo-sensitive patients received a first HDCT course with(More)
We investigated the association of gene IL6 G(-174)C polymorphism and gene IL10 G(-1082)A polymorphism with coronary artery disease (CAD) in the Russian population. A total of 1145 patients with CAD diagnose on the basis of clinical studies in cardiological hospitals of Moscow, St -Petersburg, Kazan, Chelyabinsk, Perm, Stavropol and Rostov-on-Don.(More)
