7592 Background: Several studies have shown that the addition of rituximab (R) to CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisona), or shortening the interval between cycles of chemotherapy to two weeks, improves survival of patients with DLBCL. These studies prompted our group (GOTEL) to evaluate in a prospective study, the feasibility and(More)
17532 Background: Gold standard treatment of CD20+ aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, R-CHOP, has been suggested to improve outcome when administered as dose-dense regimen supported with G-CSF. The non-pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (Myocet) has an improved safety profile compared to standard formulations of doxorubicin. Standard R-CHOP regimen has(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy and tolerability of a biochemotherapy regimen, including low-dose subcutaneous interleukin-2 and temozolomide, in patients with metastatic melanoma. Treatment consisted of temozolomide (150 mg/m per day on days 1-5), cisplatin (20 mg/m per day intravenously on days 1-4), vinblastine (1.5 mg/m per day on(More)
4 patients suffering severe neuromuscular diseases were subjected to a subtentorial implantation of electrodes over the anterior cerebellar lobe surface. Chronic stimulation was applied for 90 min to 7 h daily, with a rate of 20--180 Hz, 6--10 V and a schedule of 15 min "on", 15 min "off". Some improvement was observed in 3 patients treated with high(More)
Background: Chemotherapy with ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and darcarbacine) schedule is the standard treatment for advanced Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Certain facts, including a low toxicity compared with MOPP/ABV (mechlorethamine, vincristine, procarbazine, prednisone, doxorubicin, bleomycin and vinblastine) and minimal potential for inducing second(More)
Within the germinal neoplasms of the central nervous system, the embryonal carcinoma is a very rare tumor. The authors report such a lesion arising on the corpus callosum in a child 8 months after a differentiated teratoma was totaly removed from the pineal region. The classification of the germ cell tumors of the central nervous system and their relation(More)
A large subdural xanthogranuloma was removed from the posterior fossa of a 53-year-old woman with symptoms of Hand-Schüller-Christian disease. Two additional masses with similar density on computerized tomography were found in the hypothalamus and in the choroid plexus of the right lateral ventricle.
