BACKGROUND The results of the addition of gemtuzumab ozogamicin, an anti-CD33 antibody conjugate, to the standard treatment for patients with acute myeloid leukaemia in phase 3 trials were contradictory. We investigated whether the addition of low fractionated-dose gemtuzumab ozogamicin to standard front-line chemotherapy would improve the outcome of(More)
Granulocytic sarcoma is a rare extramedullary tumour, which most often occurs in the course of an acute or chronic leukaemia or myeloproliferative disorders. Rarely it is found before peripheral blood or bone marrow evidence of leukemia is present. We report an unusual case of acute paraplegia at first presentation of a spinal epidural granulocytic sarcoma(More)
The aim of this work was to use several new biological indicators to evaluate damage to the main physiological systems in a victim exposed accidentally to ionizing radiation. Blood samples were used for biological dosimetry and for measurement of the plasma concentrations of several molecules: Flt3 ligand to assess the hematopoietic system, citrulline as an(More)
In elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) treated intensively, no best postremission strategy has emerged yet. This clinical trial enrolled 416 patients with AML aged 65 years or older who were considered eligible for standard intensive chemotherapy, with a first randomization comparing idarubicin with daunorubicin for all treatment sequences.(More)
BACKGROUND There is a need for standardization of treatment decisions in older patients with acute myeloid leukemia. The aim of the present study was to analyze the decisional value of poor risk factors in 416 elderly patients treated in the ALFA-9803 trial in order to derive a decisional index. DESIGN AND METHODS Standard multivariate analysis was used(More)
Between 1990 and 1996, we conducted a randomized trial in adults with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in order to compare relapse-free interval (RFI) after double induction (arm B), timed-sequential induction (arm C), or control "3 + 7" induction (arm A). Patients achieving complete remission (CR) after induction +/- salvage received the same(More)
Sequential high-dose chemotherapy protocol for relapsed poor prognosis germ cell tumors combining two mobilization and cytoreductive treatments followed by three high-dose chemotherapy regimens supported by autologous stem cell transplantation. Results of the phase II multicentric TAXIF trial Background: High-dose chemotherapy (HD-CT) is able to circumvent(More)
