The vitreous levels of the angiogenic polypeptide vascular endothelial growth factor (also known as vascular permeability factor) were measured and compared in eyes with and without proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Undiluted vitreous samples from 20 eyes were collected at the time of vitrectomy, and vascular endothelial growth factor levels were(More)
PURPOSE Reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) for allogeneic stem-cell transplantation (allo-SCT) reduces nonrelapse mortality (NRM). This reduction makes it possible for patients who are ineligible for high-dose myeloablative conditioning allo-SCT to benefit from graft-versus-leukemia reaction. In this multicenter, prospective study of patients with acute(More)
We report the results of reduced-intensity conditioning allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-RIC) in patients with advanced Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). Forty patients with relapsed or refractory HL were homogeneously treated with an RIC protocol (fludarabine 150 mg/m(2) intravenously plus melphalan 140 mg/m(2) intravenously) and cyclosporin A and(More)
PURPOSE These studies evaluated an erbium:YAG laser for transection of vitreous membranes, retinotomy, and incision and ablation of epiretinal membranes. METHODS Elevated vitreous membranes, detachments, and epiretinal membranes were induced in rabbit eyes. An erbium:YAG laser, emitting at a wavelength of 2.94 microns and equipped with a flexible fiber(More)
