BACKGROUND Recent clinical trials have shown that modification of plasma lipoprotein concentrations can favorably alter progression of coronary atherosclerosis, but no data exist on the effects of a comprehensive program of risk reduction involving both changes in lifestyle and medications. This study tested the hypothesis that intensive multiple risk(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine dose-limiting toxicities and pharmacokinetics of imatinib in children with refractory or recurrent Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph(+)) leukemias. Oral imatinib was administered daily at dose levels ranging from 260 to 570 mg/m(2). Plasma pharmacokinetic studies were performed on days 1 and 8 of course 1. There(More)
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor of the peritoneum (DSRCTP) is a rare, frequently fatal tumor. This retrospective study, based on CIBMTR registry data, describes the largest reported cohort of DSRCTP patients who have undergone Auto-SCT. The probabilities of disease-free survival (DFS) at 1 year for patients in CR and not in CR were 75% (95% confidence(More)
Seventeen patients transplanted with hematopoietic cells to correct severe T lymphocyte immunodeficiency resulting from complete DiGeorge anomaly were identified worldwide, and retrospective data were obtained using a questionnaire-based survey. Patients were treated at a median age of 5 months (range, 2-53 months) between 1995 and 2006. Bone marrow was(More)

Umbilical cord blood (UCB) is increasingly used as a source of hematopoietic progenitor cells to treat a variety of disorders. UCB transplant is associated with comparatively reduced incidence of graft-versus-host disease, robust graft versus leukemia effect, and relatively high incidence of opportunistic infections, three processes in which donor-derived T(More)
