Interleukin-2 (IL-2) acts by increasing the efficiency of the immune system to exert a tumoricidal effect. Although it is well known that immune stimulation with IL-2 plays a role in unmasking autoimmune phenomena such as autoimmune thyroiditis, hematological effects such as anemia and thrombocytopenia are more frequently due to toxic non-immune mechanisms.(More)
Intramedullary spinal cord metastasis (ISCM) is an unusual occurrence in systemic cancer, occurring in as few as 2% of autopsy cases and also represents 8.5% of all cases of central nervous system metastases. Although ISCM from small cell lung carcinoma is well documented, ISCM from non-small cell lung carcinoma of the lung is rarely diagnosed prior to the(More)
BACKGROUND Low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs) are being preferred to unfractionated heparin (UFH) because of their superior convenience and a comparable or slightly better toxicity profile. Whether LMWH has an inhibitory effect on aldosterone that causes hyperkalemia is yet uncertain. METHODS Twenty-eight patients (all male; mean age: 70 years, range(More)
Thromboembolic phenomena are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease. Studies in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) have demonstrated an increased relative risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) in association with hyperhomocysteinemia (HHe). However, very little data exist about the causal relationship(More)
phocytes these agents inhibit the ribonucleotide reductase that ultimately leads to inhibition of DNA synthesis.5 As a result of its cytotoxic activity, fludarabine induces a profound lymphocytopenia. A marked decrease in CD4 lymphocytes occurs that may persist for several years, while affecting other mononuclear cell populations (CD5), which recover more(More)
Treatment of early-stage (I, II, and some IIIA) non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is curative resection. Simultaneous isolated adrenal metastasis represents a dilemma. Although many studies addressing the management of adrenal metastasis diagnosed simultaneously with NSCLC have been published, only very few reports of late adrenal metastasis can be found(More)
