This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of dose intensifying DHAP (dexamethasone, cytarabine and cisplatin) salvage chemotherapy by adding mitoxantrone with GM-GSF support in patients with relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). From March 1992 to January 1995, 22 patients with intermediate and high grade (aggressive) NHL(More)
PURPOSE To compare outcomes of patients treated with low-dose-rate (LDR) adjuvant brachytherapy (BT) + external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) vs. high-dose-rate (HDR) adjuvant BT + EBRT. METHODS AND MATERIALS Thirty-seven patients with soft tissue sarcoma (STS) were treated with pre- or postoperative external beam irradiation and postoperative LDR or HDR(More)
OBJECTIVES Although brachytherapy has been used in the management of soft tissue sarcoma for decades, there is little published data regarding dose and toxicity. We performed an interim analysis of our high dose-rate experience to establish dosing guidelines. METHODS We analyzed our first 12 soft tissue sarcoma patients treated with high dose-rate(More)
Paraneoplastic neurologic syndrome (pns) is an uncommon manifestation of cancer and may present before any symptoms of malignant disease. This syndrome occurs in fewer than 1 of every 10,000 patients diagnosed with a malignancy. Anti-neural antibodies have been associated with pns, suggesting that this condition may reflect immune mechanisms. Depending on(More)
BACKGROUND Outcomes in metastatic breast cancer (mbc) positive for her2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) are generally unfavourable. Trastuzumab has revolutionized the prognosis of her2-positive mbc. Some her2-positive mbc patients go into prolonged remission, and a few patients remain in remission even after discontinuation of trastuzumab,(More)
A 49-year-old woman presents with an extensive violaceous rash, rapidly progressive proximal muscle weakness, and dysphagia to solids, consistent with a diagnosis of dermatomyositis. Two weeks later, she palpates a mass in her left breast and is diagnosed with her2-positive metastatic invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast. There is a well-established(More)
