The necessity of aggressive therapy for desmoid tumors has not been clearly established. To evaluate the therapeutic value of adequate resection and radiation therapy, we conducted a retrospective study of 138 patients treated from 1965 through 1984. Univariate analysis revealed five factors predictive of local failure: (1) age between 18 and 30 years, (2)(More)
Radiation-associated sarcomas are uncommon, constituting less than 5% of all sarcomas, and generally associated with a poor prognosis. We reviewed the medical records of 565 patients with sarcoma and a second malignancy seen at our institution between 1943 and 1989; 160 of these patients (28%) were considered to have a radiation-associated sarcoma. The most(More)
The true incidence of leptomeningeal tumor in primary central nervous system lymphoma is unknown. We studied prospectively the cerebrospinal fluid profile of 96 patients without acquired immunodeficiency syndrome but with primary central nervous system lymphoma at diagnosis, at completion of treatment, and at recurrence. Magnetic resonance images and(More)
PURPOSE The prognostic value of factors used in clinicopathologic staging of localized soft tissue sarcoma (STS) of the extremity were analyzed comprehensively. PATIENTS AND METHODS Four hundred twenty-three patients with STS that was confined to the extremity were admitted to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center from 1968 to 1978. Cox models for the(More)
BACKGROUND To reduce long-term nephrotoxic calcineurin inhibitor dosage, adjunctive sirolimus or mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) was used in a 150-patient, randomized, three-armed trial in cadaveric or human leukocyte antigen non-identical living-donor first renal transplant recipients (n=50/group). METHODS Group A received tacrolimus and sirolimus. Target(More)
PURPOSE This report is a patterns-of-failure analysis of resected renal cell carcinoma (RCC) performed to determine the relative incidences of local failure (LF) and distant failure, to identify the pathologic features predicting for each using a multivariate analysis, and to assess the relative impact of each form of failure on overall survival (OS). In(More)
BACKGROUND In an attempt to reduce chronic calcineurin inhibitor induced allograft nephropathy in first cadaver and human leukocyte antigen non-identical living-donor renal transplantation, sirolimus (Siro) or mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) was tested as adjunctive therapy, with planned dose reductions of tacrolimus (Tacro) over the first year postoperatively.(More)
The optimal long-term regimen for immunosuppression for kidney transplant recipients is unknown. We conducted a randomized trial involving 150 kidney transplant recipients to compare tacrolimus/sirolimus, tacrolimus/mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), and cyclosporine/sirolimus. All patients received daclizumab induction and maintenance corticosteroids. Median(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about the long-term consequences of new-onset diabetes mellitus (NODM) after liver transplantation (LTX). METHODS In a chart review between 1996 and 2004, we evaluated its incidence and possible effect on patient and graft survival. Inclusion criteria were: adult primary LTX; deceased donor LTX without combined organs; and dual(More)
Intestinal transplantation has evolved over the years with major improvements in patient and graft survival. Acute cellular rejection of the intestine, however, still remains one of the most challenging aspects of postoperative management. We analyzed retrospectively collected data from 209 recipients of primary intestinal grafts at our institution over the(More)
