A pilot phase II study of a ifosfamide and vindesine combination of non-small cell lung cancer was conducted in the elderly patients and patients with reduced renal function. The combination consisted of ifosfamide, 2.3 g/m2, on day 1 through 3, and vindesine, 3 mg/m2, on day 1 and 8. Cycles were repeated at 4-week intervals. The dose of ifosfamide and(More)
Diffuse large-cell lymphoma (DLCL) is a neoplasm that is curable with chemotherapy in an appreciable percentage of patients. However, not all patients are cured and the best drug combination and optimal dose intensity have not yet been established. In an attempt to improve complete response rate and survival with minimal toxicity, we devised an alternating(More)
To develop a novel ablation therapy for human solid cancer, the heating properties of a ferromagnetic carbon steel rod and a prototype Ti-coated needle using this carbon steel rod, were investigated in several high-frequency outputs at 300 kHz. In the former, the heating property was drastically different among the three inclination angles (θ = 0°, 45° and(More)
In an attempt to assess the effects and toxicity of brief induction chemotherapy plus involved-field irradiation for localized intermediate- and high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, we conducted a single-arm prospective trial between May 1987 and July 1991. Patients received four cycles of a five-drug chemotherapy regimen consisting of cyclophosphamide,(More)
A case of common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) who developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of the rectum is reported. A 22-year-old male student in whom CVID was diagnosed at 7 years of age was referred to our department for the treatment of rectal NHL. The patient had stage IE disease confined to the rectum after clinical diagnostic procedures. He was(More)
Pulmonary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) developed in a 31-year-old renal transplant recipient 3 years after transplantation. Chest roentgenogram showed rapidly progressive multiple nodules in both lungs. The pleural fluid obtained by needle aspiration contained many atypical cells with surface B cell antigen and abnormal karyotype. The patient died of(More)
The levels of peripheral progenitor cells was measured serially after cancer chemotherapy in 4 patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and one patient with rhabdomyosarcoma who received recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rG-CSF). This study was composed of two independent phases: in the first phase, patients received a course of cytotoxic(More)
For the purpose of developing a novel ablation therapy for oral cancer, the heat generation and transfer properties of a Ti-coated carbon steel rod with 20-mm length and 1.8-mm outer diameter were investigated by means of a high-frequency induction technique at 300 kHz. The heat generation measurement performed using water (15 mL) revealed that the(More)
A 38-year-old man was admitted to our department on April, 1991 for a progressive mass in his right thigh. He had pain in the same area since April, 1990, but did not notice lymph node swelling until March, 1991. The biopsy specimen of the mass showed diffuse large cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) with an immunohistochemical feature of B cell. He achieved(More)
