Immunochemotherapy with cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, prednisone and rituximab (R-CHOP) is the standard treatment in non-immunosuppressed patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), but its adequacy has not been definitively established in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-related lymphoma. This phase II trial aimed to(More)
Among other phenotypic markers, CD11b expression has been considered as an unfavorable prognostic factor, both in terms of overall survival (OS), disease-free survival (DFS), and attainment and duration of complete remissions (CRs) in adult patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Recently, some groups have restricted its prognostic impact to poor(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Although doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine (ABVD) is considered the standard chemotherapy regimen for Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL), information on the results of this therapy in human immunodeficiency (HIV)-related HL is scarce. We analyzed the results of the ABVD regimen and highly active antiretroviral therapy(More)
Limited comparative data exist for the treatment of HIV-associated non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We analyzed pooled individual patient data for 1546 patients from 19 prospective clinical trials to assess treatment-specific factors (type of chemotherapy, rituximab, and concurrent combination antiretroviral [cART] use) and their influence on the outcomes complete(More)
We compared outcomes from a single-arm study of blinatumomab in adult patients with B-precursor Ph-negative relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (R/R ALL) with a historical data set from Europe and the United States. Estimates of complete remission (CR) and overall survival (OS) were weighted by the frequency distribution of prognostic factors(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS The increasing scarcity of young related donors has led to the use of older donors for related allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). This study analyzed the influence of age on the results of mobilization of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) in healthy donors as well as on the engraftment and outcome of HSCT. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Oral mucositis (OM) is a common complication of conditioning regimens with high-dose melphalan (HDmel). This retrospective cohort study analyzes the impact of oral cryotherapy (OC) or room temperature saline rinses on the prevention of OM in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) or lymphoid neoplasias submitted to autologous stem cell(More)
The impact of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection on the outcome of patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related lymphoma with life-threatening complications requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission is not well known. The objective of this study was to compare the outcome of patients with lymphoma transferred to the ICU(More)
Patients who are admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with hematologic malignancies have a poor prognosis, although outcomes have improved in recent years. This study analyzed ICU mortality, short- and long-term survival, and prognostic factors for 100 consecutive critically ill patients with a hematologic malignancy who were admitted to our polyvalent(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE There is scarce information on the influence of stem cell transplantation (SCT) on the prognosis of patients with hematological malignancies admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU). PATIENTS AND METHOD The mortality during ICU admission, long-term survival and the prognostic factors for survival were analyzed and compared in(More)
