The aim of this study was to determine whether oral ganciclovir interacted pharmacokinetically with zidovudine (AZT), didanosine (ddI), or probenecid. A multicenter, open-label, randomized, crossover pharmacokinetic study with four phases was undertaken at an outpatient private research center and at university research clinics. Twenty-six HIV-infected(More)
We conducted a clinical comparison of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) and the new single use PVC LMA (LMA-Unique) in 100 fasted adult patients undergoing elective surgery. Patients were allocated to one of two groups: group 1 (n = 50) was managed by two consultants and group 2 by two trainee anaesthetists. Airway management was randomized prospectively(More)
To evaluate the antiretroviral activity of delavirdine mesylate, a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor of HIV-1, we performed a phase II, randomized, double-blind, multicenter trial comparing the three-drug combination of delavirdine with zidovudine and didanosine to two-drug combinations of these drugs. Patients with CD4 cell counts between 100(More)
Clinical and morphologic features of seven T-cell lymphomas of the large cell type are described. The tumors were grouped into those with irregular (3 cases) and those with round and regular nuclei (4 cases). In both groups, variation in cell size, numerous histiocytes and vessels, and many mitoses were distinguishing features. In only 1 case in the round(More)
Systemic chemotherapy as a mode of therapy in metastatic malignant thymoma has never been systematically evaluated. Chemotherapeutic agents, including doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, cis-platinum, nitrogen mustard, prednisone or combination of agents like MOPP have produced tumor remission. A case report of complete remission of malignant thymoma in which(More)
Topiramate (TPM) is a novel antiepileptic medication (AED) with at least three mechanisms of action. A possible fourth mechanism, that of a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, also may contribute to its antiepileptic properties. We report a patient with intractable epilepsy and normal renal function who developed a normal anion gap metabolic acidosis, which(More)
Massive bleeding from a pancreatic pseudocyst is a rare condition that poses a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. A 36-yr-old woman presented with acute pancreatitis due to gallstones. Twenty-two days later, she developed severe abdominal pain and hypotension. CT scan revealed hemorrhage into a pancreatic pseudocyst and a large amount of free blood in(More)
A phase-I study was conducted to examine the safety, pharmacokinetics, and activity of combination 2',3'-dideoxyinosine (ddI) and ribavirin against human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-positive individuals with CD4+ cell counts of < or = 500/microliter. Nineteen patients were enrolled into the study in which ddI monotherapy (200 mg p.o.b.i.d.) was(More)
