PURPOSE To assess the value of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) for induction treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), both for priming of leukemic cells and for acceleration of hematopoietic recovery. PATIENTS AND METHODS GM-CSF was administered 5 micrograms/kg/d by continuous intravenous (i.v.) infusion during induction(More)
Biphenotypic acute leukaemia (BAL) patients represented 8% of the 287 de novo consecutive adult acute leukaemias (23 BAL, 230 acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and 34 acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL)) referred to our department during the last 4-year period. Of these 23 BAL patients, 14 patients showed myeloid morphology and nine cases lymphoid morphology(More)
A retrospective analysis was performed on 235 elderly acute myelogenous leukaemia (AML) patients aged 60 years or more, consecutively admitted to a single haematological department during a 10-year period from 1980 to 1989. 46% of patients received only conventional induction chemotherapy. The rate of inclusion in EORTC cooperative clinical trials was(More)
A case-control study has been performed for occupational risk factors of acute leukaemia, based on 185 cases more than 30 years old and 513 matched controls. There was a significant excess of polyvalent farming and electronic engineers among professions of cases, and, in addition of metal workers when considering the professions pursued for more than 5(More)
 The clinical significance of the multidrug resistance (MDR 1) gene phenotype was investigated in newly diagnosed AML and was compared with other clinical and biological prognostic factors in patients who received at least one course of induction therapy with intercalating agents and conventional doses of Ara-C. MDR 1 gene was overexpressed in 40% of the(More)
Twenty-two patients (mean age 41 years) in blast crisis or accelerated phase (AP) of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) were treated with cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C) 500 mg/m2 [intermediate dose] or 1000 mg/m2 [high dose] twice a day for 6 days and amsacrine (AMSA) 120 mg/m2 for 3 days. Twenty-one cases were of myeloid type and one was a lymphoid BC. The(More)
The prognostic value of some current cytologic characteristics was assessed in 174 adult patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) treated according to the AML-5 protocol of the EORTC Leukemia and Hematosarcomas Group. A significantly higher rate of complete remission (CR) was observed in patients with low bone-marrow (BM) cellularity, with BM blasts(More)
Bone marrow long-term cultures were studied for 8 weeks in four experiments before and after T-cell depletion with a mixture of monoclonal antibodies directed against CD2, CD5 and CD7. No differences in cellularity or granulomonocytic progenitor numbers appeared during the period of culture. We conclude that in vitro treatment in itself is not likely to(More)
The initial clinical and biological parameters, including clonogenic leukemic cell (CFU-L) assay, were reviewed for their prognostic significance in a cohort of 188 adult patients with newly diagnosed untreated acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Almost all patients received induction therapy with daunorubicin (DNR) and cytarabine (Ara-C) according to the(More)
A retrospective study was performed on 46 unselected acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) elderly patients aged 60 years or more. Only 50% of these patients were included in the EORTC cooperative clinical trials, thus confirming the important selection bias in most of the published series on elderly ALL patients. 43% of the elderly patients achieved a(More)
