Brentuximab Vedotin is an antibody - drug conjugate targeting CD30. We report a case of severe cytokine release syndrome (CRS) after administration of the first dose of Brentuximab Vedotin in a 64-yr-old patient with relapsed systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (sALCL). To our knowledge, this is the first case of CRS to Brentuximab Vedotin described in(More)
Thirty-nine patients with a variety of advanced malignancies were treated with recombinant IFN-gamma 4A (AMGen, specific activity 1 to 5 x 10(7) U/mg protein). IFN-gamma 4A was administered at a dose of 10-2,000 micrograms/m2/d. Following a 2-week rest, a maintenance phase was continued with injections 3 d/wk. Immunologic monitoring studies were performed(More)
It is well established that CD4 and CD8 T cells are required for the initiation of autoimmune diabetes in NOD mice. However, different subsets of CD4 or CD8 cells may play different roles in the initiation of insulitis. In this study, we evaluated the role of the previously described CD8(+) CD122(+) in this process. We found that prediabetic NOD mice have(More)
The effects of cyclosporine (CsA) on the induction of thymic lymphoma in male Swiss Webster mice were investigated using the classic model of two-stage carcinogenesis with N-methyl N-nitrosourea (MNU) as an initiator and CsA as a promoter. The mice treated with a single dose of MNU followed by chronic feeding of 0.015% CsA developed an eight-fold higher(More)
