Studies with animals and in vitro studies have demonstrated that flucytosine plus amphotericin B or fluconazole has significantly improved mycologic activity against meningitis caused by Cryptococcus neoformans compared to the activity of amphotericin B or fluconazole used alone. However, few doses have been tested in combination. This study evaluated the(More)
We studied the effect of the severity of meningitis on the response to therapy with fluconazole and flucytosine in a murine model of cryptococcal meningitis. Meningitis was established by intracerebral injection of Cryptococcus neoformans. The severity of meningitis was varied by delaying the onset of treatment from 3 to 7 days. Animals were sacrificed(More)
In 44 out of 758 patients (5.8%) with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma presenting between 1971 and 1982, the central nervous system (CNS) was involved. Patients with a diffuse histology had a 7.6% (34/449) incidence of CNS involvement compared to 3.9% (10/257) for patients with nodular lymphoma. In 63% of patients there was evidence of progressive systemic lymphoma(More)
Both animal and in vitro studies have demonstrated that combinations of flucytosine with amphotericin B and with fluconazole have significantly improved activity against cryptococcal meningitis compared with the activity of each drug used alone. However, very few dose levels of these agents have been tested in combination. This study evaluated the efficacy(More)
A 68-year-old woman presented with haematological changes of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and acute monocytic leukaemia. This diagnosis was confirmed by identification of cell surface markers for T and B lymphocytes and the identification of abnormal immunoglobulins and lysozyme in serum and urine.
PURPOSE To compare complete response rates, time to failure, survival, and toxicity for patients with intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) treated with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisolone (CHOP) versus those treated with a regimen consisting of methotrexate, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, prednisolone, and(More)
The role of leukapheresis was explored in the management of anaemia and thrombocytopenia complicating the accumulation of lymphoid cells in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and lymphoma. The aim of this study was to determine the efficiency of this procedure in correcting these complicating features and to assess the length of response and the(More)
Flow cytometry studies for cellular DNA analysis were performed in 115 cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, 53 of which had not received any prior chemotherapy or radiotherapy. DNA content was measured in ethanol fixed cells stained with chromomycin A3. According to the criteria of the International Working Formulation there were 43 low grade, 58 intermediate(More)
Opportunistic infections are increasingly becoming a problem in cancer patients amongst whom infection with Nocardia species is particularly difficult to detect due to the capricious natural history of the disease. Three cases of Nocardia infection in patients who had undergone splenectomy for haematological malignancy are presented. These cases illustrate(More)
