The addition of rituximab to cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) chemotherapy results in significant improvement in clinical outcome for individuals with non-HIV-associated aggressive B-cell lymphoma. To assess the potential risks and benefits of the addition of rituximab to CHOP for HIV-associated non-Hodgkin lymphoma(More)
Rituximab plus intravenous bolus chemotherapy is a standard treatment for immunocompetent patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Some studies have suggested that rituximab is associated with excessive toxicity in HIV-associated NHL, and that infusional chemotherapy may be more effective. We performed a randomized phase 2 trial of rituximab (375(More)
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 immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-infected men are at increased risk for anal cancer. Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination may prevent anal cancer caused by vaccine types. METHODS AIDS Malignancy Consortium Protocol 052 is a single-arm, open-label, multicenter clinical trial to assess the safety and immunogenicity of the(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)
Limited comparative data exist for the treatment of HIV-associated non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We analyzed pooled individual patient data for 1546 patients from 19 prospective clinical trials to assess treatment-specific factors (type of chemotherapy, rituximab, and concurrent combination antiretroviral [cART] use) and their influence on the outcomes complete(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to determine whether pretreatment plasma levels of cytokines and immune activation-associated molecules changed following treatment for AIDS-NHL with rituximab plus infusional EPOCH, and to determine whether pretreatment levels of these molecules were associated with response to treatment and/or survival. EXPERIMENTAL(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)
