Between October 1988 and December 1992, 167 patients with leukemia receiving marrow transplants from HLA-identical donors and conditioned with cyclophosphamide (120 mg/kg) were randomized to additional treatment with either busulfan (16 mg/kg, n = 88) or total body irradiation (TBI; n = 79). The busulfan-treated patients had an increased cumulative(More)
The Nordic Myeloma Study Group conducted an open randomized trial to compare bortezomib as consolidation therapy given after high-dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) with no consolidation in bortezomib-naive patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Overall, 370 patients were centrally randomly assigned 3 months after ASCT to(More)
BACKGROUND An allogeneic antitumour effect has been reported for various cancers. We evaluated the experience of allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in 124 patients from 21 European centres. PATIENTS AND METHODS Reduced intensity conditioning and peripheral blood stem cells from an HLA-identical(More)
The cytogenetic features (ploidy, complexity, breakpoints, imbalances) were ascertained in 783 abnormal multiple myeloma (MM) cases to identify frequently involved chromosomal regions as well as a possible impact of age/sex. The series included MM patients from the Mitelman Database of Chromosome Aberrations in Cancer and from our own laboratory.(More)
BACKGROUND Autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a viable option for treatment of aggressive multiple sclerosis (MS). No randomised controlled trial has been performed, and thus, experiences from systematic and sustained follow-up of treated patients constitute important information about safety and efficacy. In this observational(More)
A randomized multicentre study was conducted to evaluate the effect of anti-CMV hyperimmune globulin in the prophylaxis of CMV infections in CMV seronegative allogeneic BMT patients who received a transplant from a seropositive donor or who had received blood products unscreened for CMV during the treatment before BMT. Twenty-eight patients were included in(More)
To specify the incidence and risk factors for secondary autoimmune diseases (ADs) after HSCT for a primary AD, we retrospectively analyzed AD patients treated by HSCT reported to EBMT from 1995 to 2009 with at least 1 secondary AD (cases) and those without (controls). After autologous HSCT, 29 of 347 patients developed at least 1 secondary AD within 21.9(More)
The value of intensive therapy, including autologous stem cell transplantation, in newly diagnosed myeloma patients >60 years is not clear. We evaluated the impact of age (<60 years vs. 60-64 years) on survival in a prospective, population-based setting and compared survival with conventionally treated historic controls. The prospective population comprised(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to identify prognostic factors for predicting survival in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who had undergone an allogeneic stem cell transplantation after failure on immunotherapy. METHODS The authors studied 70 patients with advanced RCC who underwent allogeneic transplantation with a(More)
We evaluated the costs and the cost utility of high-dose melphalan and autologous stem cell support followed by interferon maintenance relative to conventional treatment with melphalan and prednisone, in patients less than 60 yr of age with multiple myeloma. From March 1994 to July 1997, 274 patients with newly diagnosed, symptomatic multiple myeloma were(More)
