PURPOSE To study response to chemotherapy and the outcome of children treated for a relapsed anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) and to evaluate the role of bone marrow transplantation (BMT) in these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Clinical data concerning the 41 relapses that occurred in 119 patients with ALCL enrolled in 3 consecutive studies since(More)
A commercially available ELISA for detecting antibodies to liver fluke was evaluated for use in Australia. Milk and serum samples from cattle and sheep in which infection with Fasciola hepatica was confirmed by detection of eggs in faeces were used to estimate sensitivity. Similar samples collected from cattle and sheep outside the F. hepatica-endemic area(More)
Coronary arteriography was performed twice in 256 nonoperated patients, including 92 surgical candidates who were recatheterized because of the long wait for surgery. Criteria to define progression and regression were established in advance. Analysis of separate segments, reflecting separate lesions, revealed that progression percentages increased(More)
To evaluate long-term benefits and risks of CyA therapy in renal transplantation, we analyzed the 10-year experience with all 59 patients who had received a first cadaveric renal graft until August 1983 and were immunosuppressed with CyA. We compared their actual graft survival with that of all 213 patients who had received a first cadaveric graft from 1967(More)
A vascular osteonecrosis has occurred in 5 to 40 per cent of patients who have undergone transplantation of a kidney and generally has been considered to be a complication of the use of corticosteroids. Currently cyclosporin A is in general use for its immunosuppressive property, so that a lower dose of corticosteroids is needed. We analyzed the cases of a(More)
Etiology and treatment of the coeliac compression syndrome remains controversial. The external compression, near the origin of the truncus coeliacus and the poststenotic dilatation is well demonstrated by angiography on a lateral projection. The development of collaterals like the pancreaticoduodenal and gastroduodenal artery can be assessed on a frontal(More)
One hundred recipients of first cadaveric kidney transplants were treated with three different immunosuppressive regimens: (1) conventional immunosuppression, (2) CsA alone, and (3) low-dose CsA in combination with low-dose prednisone, with rapid adjustment to give CsA whole blood trough levels of 300 to 800 ng/mL. One-year graft survival in the aza + pred(More)
The presence of albumin receptors on the plasma membrane of isolated human hepatocytes was investigated employing albumin-coupled latex minibeads. Hepatocyte-latex reaction was visualized by phase contrast and scanning electron microscopy. The experiments demonstrate that hepatocytes exhibit binding activity for polymeric and monomeric forms of(More)
Osteopenia has been observed to occur frequently after renal transplantation. The present study was undertaken to assess whether an immunosuppressive regimen combining cyclosporine with no or the lowest possible maintenance doses of glucocorticoid may prevent osteopenia after kidney transplantation. Thirty-four patients were prospectively followed for two(More)
