PURPOSE To explore a more effective treatment for localized nasal natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma, we conducted a phase I/II study of concurrent chemoradiotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Treatments comprised concurrent radiotherapy (50 Gy) and 3 courses of dexamethasone, etoposide, ifosfamide, and carboplatin (DeVIC). Patients with a newly diagnosed(More)
Brentuximab vedotin is an antibody-drug conjugate that selectively delivers the antimicrotubule agent monomethyl auristatin E into CD30-expressing cells. To assess its safety, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy in Japanese patients with refractory or relapsed CD30-positive Hodgkin's lymphoma or systemic anaplastic large-cell lymphoma, we carried out a phase(More)
The prognosis of advanced extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma (ENKTL) is poor. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (allo-HSCT) has been suggested to be a promising treatment for this disease, but its utility has yet to be established. Here we retrospectively analyzed five cases of ENKTL treated with allo-HSCT in our institute. After induction(More)
Overactivation of the mineralocorticoid receptor signaling is implicated in cardiovascular disease, including hypertensive heart disease. Oxidative stress is suggested to augment mineralocorticoid receptor signal transduction, but the precise mechanisms remain unclear. Mineralocorticoid receptor activity is regulated by multiple factors, in addition to(More)
Nasal natural killer (NK)/T cell lymphoma is a rare entity of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma which mostly occurs in East Asian countries. The advanced disease above clinical stage III is often refractory to the radiation and chemotherapies, remission is transient even if achieved, and median survival is about 12 months. Thus the prognosis of advanced NK/T cell(More)
Resistance to cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C) is a major problem in the treatment of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In order to investigate the mechanisms involved in Ara-C resistance, the gene expression profile of Ara-C-resistant K562 human myeloid leukemia cells (K562/AC cells) was compared to that of Ara-C-sensitive K562 cells (K562 cells) by(More)
Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a distinct peripheral T-cell lymphoma entity exhibiting peculiar clinical features and poor prognosis. Its clinical characteristics and prognostic factors are not well established. To clarify the clinical characteristics and prognostic features of AITL, we conducted a multicenter, retrospective study. Fifty-six(More)
PURPOSE CC chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4) is expressed by peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs) and is associated with poor outcomes. Mogamulizumab (KW-0761) is a defucosylated humanized anti-CCR4 antibody engineered to exert potent antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity. This multicenter phase II study evaluated the efficacy and safety of mogamulizumab in(More)
Bendamustine is a unique cytotoxic agent that has demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of indolent B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (B-NHLs). In this multicenter phase II trial, the efficacy and safety of bendamustine were evaluated in Japanese patients with relapsed or refractory indolent B-NHL or mantle-cell lymphoma (MCL). Patients received bendamustine(More)
