RATIONALE Canfosfamide HCl (CAN) is a glutathione analogue prodrug that is activated by glutathione S-transferase P1-1 and induces apoptosis. CAN is synergistic in vitro with carboplatin, paclitaxel and anthracyclines. METHODS Patients with platinum-refractory or -resistant ovarian cancer (OC) who had progressed on second-line therapy with pegylated(More)
Docetaxel (Taxotere) has been studied at a dose of 100 mg/m2 i.v. as a one hour infusion every 3 weeks, in four phase II trials in patients with extensively pretreated ovarian cancer. A total of 340 patients were treated, including 256 patients in two separate EORTC (European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer) trials and 84 patients in two(More)
Thirty patients with symptomatic, progressive squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix no longer amenable to surgery or radiotherapy were entered in a phase II study of ifosfamide (IFX). Patients were treated with IFX (5 g/m2 iv given over 24 hours) and concomitant mesna (total dose, 9.2 g/m2 iv given over 36 hours) every 21 days. One complete response(More)
Human motion analysis technologies have been widely employed to identify injury determining factors and provide objective and quantitative feedback to athletes to help prevent injury. However, most of these technologies are: expensive, restricted to laboratory environments, and can require significant post processing. This reduces their ecological validity,(More)
BACKGROUND This study sought to assess the repeatability of automatic quantitative measurements of left ventricular (LV) cavity volumes in a large patient population (N = 926), to correlate those measurements to similarly obtained LV ejection fraction (LVEF) measurements, and to investigate the relationship between ungated and gated volumes. METHODS All(More)
Docetaxel has been evaluated in 293 patients with advanced ovarian cancer in three phase II trials. All patients had previously received cisplatin and/or carboplatin as first-line treatment. In all three studies, treatment comprised docetaxel 100 mg/m2 as a 1 h intravenous infusion every 3 weeks, without premedication for hypersensitivity reactions or(More)
Nineteen patients with cervical cancer had infusion of Tc-99m-macroaggregated albumin particles (MAA) via bilateral internal iliac artery catheters to aid in dividing chemotherapeutic dose appropriately between the two catheters. Unequal drug distribution was used to minimize extrapelvic complications (local gluteal burns) by reducing the dose to the side(More)
PURPOSE To determine by a pilot study whether standard treatment with the topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitor dorzolamide hydrochloride influences visual function under normal breathing conditions, during carbon dioxide inhalation, or during hyperventilation, and to establish criteria for future larger-scale studies. METHODS We enrolled 12 normal(More)
An automated volume determination program using SPECT imaging with Tc-99m has been validated by both phantom and patient studies. Its use for monitoring change of function of the liver and change in tumor mass during different therapy regimes has been assessed. The technique is not restricted to the estimation of the hepatic functioning tissues; it(More)
