Background Two consecutively performed randomized studies by the AMC evaluating chemoimmunotherapy for the treatment of HIV-associated NHL include AMC010 [1] (Concurrent Rituximab [R] + CHOP vs. CHOP, N=150) and AMC034 [2] (Concurrent R+EPOCH vs. Sequential EPOCH ®R; N=106). In AMC010, the addition of Rituximab to CHOP was associated with an increased risk(More)
BACKGROUND Human T-cell leukemia virus-associated adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATLL) has a very poor prognosis, despite trials of a variety of different treatment regimens. Virus expression has been reported to be limited or absent when ATLL is diagnosed, and this has suggested that secondary genetic or epigenetic changes are important in disease(More)
UNLABELLED Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), caused by KS-associated herpesvirus (KSHV), is the most common cancer among HIV-infected patients in Malawi and in the United States today. In Malawi, KSHV is endemic. We conducted a cross-sectional study of patients with HIV infection and KS with no history of chemo- or antiretroviral therapy (ART). Seventy patients were(More)
Background HIV associated BL remains of concern for toxicity of dose-intensive regimens used in HIV negative patients (pts). Less intensive regimens have a high relapse rate. We modified CODOX-M/IVAC hoping to preserve efficacy while improving tolerability, particularly treatment related mortality (TRM). Primary object: improving 1 year overall survival(More)
BACKGROUND We previously reported improved pathologic complete response (pCR) in a prospective phase II study using neoadjuvant bevacizumab in combination with chemotherapy compared to chemotherapy alone in breast cancer patients (41% vs. 25%, p = 0.0291). In this study, we queried germline single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in angiogenesis-related(More)
The objective of this study was to explore the cancer incidence rates among HIV-infected persons with commercial insurance who were on antiretroviral therapy and compare them with those rates in the general population. Paid health insurance claims for 63,221 individuals 18 years or older, with at least one claim with a diagnostic code for HIV and at least(More)
BACKGROUND In the era of cost-consciousness regarding healthcare , provision of medical services in an outpatient setting has become increasingly attractive. We report an influenza outbreak in an ambulatory stem cell transplant center in 2013 that highlights unique identification and infection control challenges in this setting. METHODS Nasopharyngeal(More)
The incidence of lung cancer among individuals infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is elevated compared to that among the general population. This study examines the prevalence of HIV and its impact on outcomes among Medicare beneficiaries who are 65 years of age or older and were diagnosed with nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) between(More)
