Total serum homocysteine and cholesterol levels were determined in 163 male patients with typical angina who were subjected to coronary angiography. The prevalence of homocysteinemia in coronary heart disease (CHD) was 41.9%. Serum homocysteine levels were significantly elevated (p<0.05) in patients with major occlusion in two or three coronary arteries.(More)
We conducted a Phase I trial to evaluate the safety, maximally tolerated dose (MTD), antitumor activity, and pharmacology of once-weekly oral etoposide in patients with Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) and AIDS. From September 1990 to October 1991, 27 eligible patients with biopsy-confirmed KS were treated at six etoposide dose levels, ranging from 150 to 400 mg(More)

We report the case histories of four patients with endobronchial metastases from breast cancer, two of whom died of resultant respiratory insufficiency. To aid in earlier diagnosis and thus permit more rapid application of specific therapy, we characterized the epidemiology and presenting symptoms of these patients and 38 additional patients with(More)
Ninety-two cases of low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma were examined retrospectively to assess to what extent treatment deferral is practiced at a single university hospital with a local referral base. Clinical characteristics of this patient group were also analyzed; 70% of these cases were of nodular lymphocytic, poorly differentiated (NLPD) histology, and(More)
Leukapheresis by continuous flow centrifugation (CFC) or filtration (FL) were compared in untreated and corticosteroid-treated donors. The administration of prednisone 60 mg orally 10 to 12 hours before leukapheresis increased significantly both the donor's prepheresis WBC counts and the total granulocyte yields by CFC or FL. Dexamethasone 6 mg iv at the(More)
