PURPOSE To confirm and extend encouraging preliminary results of timed sequential chemotherapy (TSC) in patients with previously treated acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). PATIENTS AND METHODS We report the results of the regimen of mitoxantrone on days 1 to 3, etoposide on days 8 to 10, and cytarabine on days 1 to 3 and 8 to 10 (EMA) in 133 patients, with(More)
Intensive sequential chemotherapy with mitoxantrone, 12 mg/m2/d on days 1 through 3, etoposide, 200 mg/m2/d as a continuous infusion on days 8 through 10, and cytarabine, 500 mg/m2/d as a continuous infusion on days 1 through 3 and 8 through 10 was administered to 72 patients aged less than 60 years with previously treated acute myelogenous leukemia (AML).(More)
PURPOSE To compare intensive chemotherapy and HLA-identical allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) as postinduction therapy in young adults with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy-eight consecutive AML patients younger than 40 years of age were treated according to a prospective protocol in which every patient in complete(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were as follows: (1) to analyze clinical, histopathologic characteristics, treatment outcome, and prognostic factors of patients with follicular large-cell lymphoma (FLCL); and (2) to compare them with those of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLCL) treated in the same therapeutic trial. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
A 5-yr experience of massive therapy and autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) for Burkitt's lymphoma is reviewed. Thirty courses were given to 28 patients. Three patients were in resistant relapse and all three died before day 54 post ABMT. Thirteen patients were in non-resistant relapse and seven are alive with non-evidence of disease (NED). All(More)
One hundred de novo multiple myeloma patients with t(4;14) treated with double intensive therapy according to IFM99 protocols were retrospectively analyzed. The median overall survival (OS) and event-free survival (EFS) were 41.4 and 21 months, respectively, as compared to 65 and 37 for patients included in the IFM99 trials without t(4;14) (P<10(-7)). We(More)
Deletions of the 1p region appear as a pejorative prognostic factor in multiple myeloma patients (especially 1p22 and 1p32 deletions) but there is a lack of data on the real impact of 1p abnormalities on an important and homogeneous group of patients. To address this issue we studied by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) the incidence and prognostic(More)
Following of the emergence of Zika virus in Brazil in 2015, an epidemiological surveillance system was quickly implemented in the French overseas Territories of America (FTA) according to previous experience with dengue and chikungunya and has detected first cases of Zika. General practitioners and medical microbiologists were invited to report all(More)
A variant translocation t(8;22)(q23;q11) has been found in tumor cells from a 19-year-old white man with an Epstein-Barr virus-associated Burkitt's lymphoma (BL). The tumor, which appeared 2 years after the patient had infectious mononucleosis, bore histopathological features characteristic of BL, although only the lymph nodes in the cervical region were(More)
To comparatively assess first-line treatment with fludarabine and 2 anthracycline-containing regimens, namely CAP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin plus prednisone) and ChOP (cyclophosphamide, vincristine, prednisone plus doxorubicin), in advanced stages of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), previously untreated patients with stage B or C CLL were randomly(More)
