Dextran, glycerol and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), alone or in combination, were used for cryoprotection of human bone marrow cells. The viability of cryopreserved cells was assessed by culture of myelopoiesis-committed stem cells (CFU-c) in vitro. A significantly better protection against freezing injury was obtained by 9% dextran in combination with 3 or 5%(More)
Nineteen patients with advanced malignant tumors, less than 20 years old were treated with intensive chemotherapy (vincristine 2 mg/m2 i.v. and adriamycin 60 mg/m2 i.v. on day - 7; cyclophosphamide 45 mg/kg i.v. on days -6 to -3), total body irradiation (TBI, 600 rads on day -1) and autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT, day 0).

The time course of pancreatic effects of somatostatin was studied over a period of 2 h in unanesthetized unrestrained rats after administration of the peptide by intravenous infusion and by single and multiple subcutaneous injections. During infusion of 10 and 30 micrograms/kg per min, somatostatin continuously suppressed plasma insulin and plasma glucagon.(More)

Two patients with polycythemia vera received intravenously an accidental tenfold overdosage of radiophosphorus therapy (60 and 50 mCi 32P, respectively). In both patients, the occurrence of hemorrhagic complications 3 wk after the 32P medication led to detection of the error and referral to our hospital. Upon admission they showed an agranulocytosis, severe(More)
