Procainamide protects mice bearing P388 leukemic cells against the toxicity of cisplatin without diminishing antitumor activity. The mechanism of action of procainamide protection was investigated both in vitro and in vivo. HPLC studies showed that procainamide forms a complex with cisplatin in vitro that has a UV spectrum similar to that of DPR, a triamine(More)
BACKGROUND Anthracycline cardiotoxicity is increased by the contemporaneous administration of trastuzumab. The mechanism by which it occurs is as yet unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether trastuzumab modifies the pharmacokinetics of epirubicin and its metabolites. PATIENTS AND METHODS Women with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer were(More)
The optimal use of mitoxantrone (NOV) in the high-dose range requires elucidation of its maximum tolerated dose with peripheral blood progenitor cell (PBPC) support and the time interval needed between drug administration and PBPC reinfusion in order to avoid graft toxicity. The aims of this study were: (1) to verify the feasibility and haematological(More)
