We have previously reported that bryostation 1 (Bryo 1) induces differentiation of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in vitro to a hairy cell (HC) stage. This study tests the hypothesis that Bryo 1-differentiated CLL cells are more susceptible to 2-chlorodeoxyadenosine (2-CdA) than parent CLL cells. A recently established EBV-negative CLL line (WSU-CLL)(More)
We have identified two new basic domain helix-loop-helix (bHLH) genes in Drosophila melanogaster, DroSCL and DroNHLH. DroSCL was identified because of its homology to the mammalian hematopoietic transcription factor SCL. DroNHLH was similarly identified by homology to NHLH1 and NHLH2, two bHLH genes expressed in the developing mammalian nervous system. A(More)
To the Editors: We commend the effort of these authors to undertake and report on their analysis of the QT/QTc interval during their phase I evaluation of combretastatin A4 phosphate and also for their inclusion of these data in this publication (1). Capturing and interpreting such data can be challenging , especially in the context of a phase I oncology(More)
High-dose chemotherapy with autologous marrow or stem cell rescue (HDC/ASCT) is an effective strategy in patients with relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma. Various chemotherapy regimens have been used for cytoreduction prior to HDC/ASCT. In this study, our objective was to determine the response rate to PEND in a group of patients with relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma.(More)
