Recent emphasis on high resolution gradient echo studies in functional imaging has led to the conclusion that there are likely three domains of response to the blood circulation in the brain when considering field inhomogeneity effects of the venous blood pre- and during activation. The first is a coherent effect due to large or macroscopic vessels on the(More)
PURPOSE Our goal was to determine whether functional MRI on a standard 1.5 T system can localize activation during a visual vigilance sustained attention task and whether this corresponds to results described in a PET investigation of a similar task. METHOD Sixteen volunteers were studied on a 1.5 T system using a gradient echo technique. A single axial(More)
This multicenter phase 2 trial investigated safety and efficacy of a new immunochemotherapeutic regimen combining rituximab (R) and fludarabine (F) in patients with fludarabine- and anthracycline-naive chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). The rationale for using R + F includes single-agent efficacy of both drugs, in vitro synergism of R and F, and no(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated factors that influence MR signal changes during photic stimulation of the visual cortex. We also tested the hypothesis that functional MR imaging response corresponds to electroencephalographic (EEG) synchronization after photic stimulation. METHODS Thirty-eight healthy subjects, 20 men and 18 women, underwent photic stimulation of(More)
The combination of melphalan, prednisone, and thalidomide (MPT) is considered standard therapy for newly diagnosed patients with multiple myeloma who are ineligible for stem cell transplantation. Long-term treatment with thalidomide is hampered by neurotoxicity. Melphalan, prednisone, and lenalidomide, followed by lenalidomide maintenance therapy, showed(More)
Dear Editor, All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) has become the mainstay in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) because addition of ATRA to anthracyclines has been shown to improve disease-free survival and overall survival compared to chemotherapy alone [1]. ATRA induces the differentiation of leukemic promyelocytes into mature cells via its(More)
