Recombinant urate oxidase (rasburicase) lowers uric acid levels rapidly to very low levels at the labeled dose of 0.15-0.2 mg/kg daily for 5 days. Our past experience showed that a lower dose (3 mg) lowered uric acid levels sufficiently in most patients. A retrospective review was conducted to determine the effect of a fixed 3 mg dose of rasburicase in 43(More)
A Doppler flow study of the uterine artery was performed using transvaginal sonography in 68 women, including 44 using an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) and 24 control women who were not using any method of contraception. Both the pulsatility index (PI) and resistance index (RI) were significantly lower in women with IUCD-induced bleeding than in(More)

Unmedicated sex- and age-matched groups of 22 single-episode (SE) and 44 recurrent unipolar (RU) outpatients with DSM-III-R/SADS/RDC major depression underwent 2 consecutive nights of(More)
We present four patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia treated with fludarabine, who developed aggressive skin cancer after years of quiescence, a short time after institution of treatment. Their leukemias responded well to therapy with fludarabine with initial treatment as well as relapse. Three patients had recurrence with basal cell carcinomas with(More)
Dose-intensive chemotherapy with autologous stem cell support is commonly used in resistant/refractory cases of Hodgkin's disease (HD) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of tandem transplantation in these patients. We used non cross-resistant conditioning regimens with thiotepa, mitoxantrone and carboplatin(More)

Clinical features of inherited and acquired hemophilia are spontaneous as well as posttraumatic deep muscle-joint and mucosal bleeding. 50% cases of AHA are associated with autoimmune diseases, malignancies,(More)
