To assess the toxicity, pharmacokinetics, and local and systemic effects of the intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) at various dosages, 13 patients with predominantly i.p. malignancies refractory to standard chemotherapy were studied. GM-CSF was administered intravenously (i.v.) for 5(More)
We studied escalating doses of recombinant human interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta) alone and after a myelosuppressive dose of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in patients with gastrointestinal cancer. Transient neutropenia, monocytopenia, and lymphocytopenia were observed followed by a 1.3- to 6.0-fold (mean, 3.46-fold) dose-dependent neutrophil leukocytosis (P less than(More)
Experiments were undertaken to establish whether prazosin prevents isolated hearts from gaining excess Ca2+ during post-ischaemic reperfusion, to determine whether this effect is dose-dependent, if it is accompanied by a change in the energy-rich phosphate reserves, and whether prazosin is effective when added only upon reperfusion. Isolated, spontaneously(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The staurosporine derivative PKC412 (CGP41251) is a more selective inhibitor of the conventional isoforms of protein kinase C (PKC) than is the parent compound. In addition to its growth inhibitory properties, PKC412 reverses the efflux function of the multidrug resistance (MDR)-1 gene product, P-glycoprotein (P-gp). DESIGN AND(More)
In a carefully monitored pilot study, the in vivo biologic effects of filgrastim were investigated in eight patients with relapsed/refractory acute myelogenous leukemia. Within each patient, filgrastim was administered as a single agent prior to any chemotherapy in escalating doses of 0.12-6.0 micrograms/kg/day as a continuous intravenous infusion. The dose(More)
Interleukin-1 (IL-1) modulation of cytokine receptors (human IL-1 receptor [hIL-1R], human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor [hG-CSFR], human granulocyte-macrophage CSF receptor [hGM-CSFR], and human tumor necrosis factor receptor [hTNFR]) on human neutrophils was studied both in vitro and in vivo. In vitro, incubation of neutrophils with IL-1 at 37(More)
