PURPOSE A novel regimen designed to maximize antileukemia activity of carboplatin through inhibiting repair of platinum-DNA adducts was conducted in poor prognosis, acute leukemia patients. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients received fludarabine (10 to 15 mg/m(2) x 5 days), carboplatin (area under the curve 10 to 12 by continuous infusion over 5 days), followed(More)
As the threshold nucleated cell dose for one-unit umbilical cord blood (UCB) in adults has not to date been firmly established, we prospectively compared one- vs two-unit UCB transplantation after reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) in adult patients with hematological malignancies. Study design specified one-UCB unit if the cryopreserved total nucleated(More)
Subacute encephalopathy developed in four patients within one to two months after undergoing high-dose chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation or peripheral blood progenitor (stem) cell transplantation for breast cancer, acute myeloid leukemia, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. None of the patients had previously known neurologic disorders, central nervous(More)
We reviewed our experience for adult patients receiving oral anticonvulsant therapy during high-dose chemotherapy and autologous bone marrow re-infusion for primary malignant tumors of the central nervous system. Nineteen patients received either iv carmustine (BCNU) 900-1050 mg/m2 and 6120 cGy cranial irradiation (N = 10), iv carmustine 900-1050 mg/m2 and(More)
INTRODUCTION Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation offers the opportunity for extended survival in patients with Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin lymphomas who relapsed after, or were deemed ineligible for, autologous transplantation. This study reports the cumulative experience of a single center over the past 14 years aiming to define the impact of(More)
