BACKGROUND High-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous bone marrow transplantation is a therapeutic option for patients with chemotherapy-sensitive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have relapses. In this report we describe a prospective randomized study of such treatment. METHOD A total of 215 patients with relapses of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma were treated(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with advanced solid tumors may be included in phase I clinical trials. In such studies, the benefit expected is generally lower than the likelihood of toxicity and may even be non-existent if the patient's life expectancy is too short. This study was performed to identify prognostic variables for toxicity and survival in patients who(More)
BACKGROUND Recombinant human interleukin-2 (aldesleukin) and recombinant human interferon alfa can induce notable tumor regression in a limited number of patients with metastatic renal-cell carcinoma. We conducted a multicenter, randomized trial to determine the effect of each cytokine independently and in combination, and to identify patients who are best(More)
Serum interleukin-10 (IL-10) was measured retrospectively in 153 patients with a fully documented history of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) detecting both human IL-10 and the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) molecule BCRF1/viral IL-10. IL-10 was detectable in 47 (46%) of the 101 patients with active NHL, 3 of 52 (6%)(More)

Since January 1983, 56 consecutive children over 1 year of age with stage IV neuroblastoma entered an aggressive protocol, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and bone marrow transplantation. The induction protocol included platinum and epipodophyllotoxin (VM-26), alternating with cyclophosphamide, Adriamycin (Adria Laboratories, Columbus, OH), and(More)
Forty-seven children or adolescents with initial stage IV (42 patients) or stage III (five) advanced neuroblastoma (12 were progressing after relapse and 35 had never reached complete remission [CR] after conventional therapy) were included in a phase II study of the combination of high-dose VP-16 (100 mg/m2/d X 5) and high-dose cisplatin (CDDP) (40 mg/m2/d(More)
The objectives of the present study were to investigate the prognostic value of the International Prognostic Index (IPI) at relapse in the 215 patients with intermediateor high-grade non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) included in the PARMA trial. The IPI at relapse was available in 204 (95%) of these patients. Response rates to 2 courses of DHAP were 77%, 54%,(More)
BACKGROUND The primary management of adult soft tissue sarcomas (STS) is characterized by heterogeneity across centers. Several studies suggest that it is improved when coordinated by specialized sarcoma centers. PATIENTS AND METHODS This study, comparing STS patients of the Rhône-Alpes region treated within and outside the cancer network, retrospectively(More)
 Carmustine (BCNU) has proved to be of value against a variety of primary brain tumors. This agent exhibits a steep dose-response curve in in vitro and animal tumor models and has been proposed for use in high-dose chemotherapy as a single agent or in combination. We conducted a phase II study to assess high-dose BCNU in children with high-grade gliomas. A(More)
