PURPOSE We examined the utility of post-therapy surveillance imaging in a large, prospectively enrolled cohort of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) from the United States and confirmed our results in an independent cohort of patients from France. METHODS Patients with newly diagnosed DLBCL and treated with anthracycline-based(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Adjuvant chemotherapy has frequently been associated with weight gain after breast cancer diagnosis. We aimed to prospectively evaluate body weight variations in French patients with early breast cancer. METHODS This prospective observational study included 272 breast cancer patients who were candidates for adjuvant chemotherapy. Weight(More)
The prognosis of follicular lymphoma could vary with the tumor immune microenvironment. We evaluated the prognostic value of serum levels of ten cytokines. Our study cohort included 60 follicular lymphoma patients and 20 controls. Serum was available at diagnosis in 31 patients, at first relapse in 18, and complete remission in 11. Bioplex technology was(More)
Overexpression of the ErbB2 receptor tyrosine kinase in breast cancer contributes to tumor development and is associated with poor prognosis. However, the mechanism by which ErbB2 might contribute to metastasis is not well defined. To identify genes that mediate ErbB2-driven cell motility, we performed differential gene expression analysis of(More)
This paper presents an analysis of censored survival data for breast cancer specific mortality and disease free survival. There are three stages to the process, namely time-to-event modelling, risk stratification by predicted outcome and model interpretation using rule extraction. Model selection was carried out using the benchmark linear model, Cox(More)
A three stage development process for the production of a hierarchical rule based prognosis tool is described. The application for this tool is specific to breast cancer patients that have a positive expression of the HER 2 gene. The first stage is the development of a Bayesian classification neural network to classify for cancer specific mortality.(More)
Rituximab was approved in France in 2004, following randomized trials that demonstrated efficacy in newly diagnosed high tumour burden follicular lymphoma (FL). This retrospective study compared the management and outcome of FL in unselected patients treated in a single institution before and after rituximab approval. Two hundred and forty-seven adult(More)
High-dose chemotherapy and autologous marrow or peripheral stem cell support offers the best chance of cure in some subgroups of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Less is known about the role of a second course of myeloablative chemotherapy in patients who relapse after a first autologous transplant. The aim of this retrospective study was to(More)
Randomized trials have demonstrated improved outcome from adding rituximab to CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). This retrospective study compared the outcomes of 224 patients with DLBCL treated in our institution before (Period 1, 1996-2002) and after (Period 2, 2002-2005)(More)
