Three hours after the intravenous infusion of doxorubicin (3 mg/kg over 15 min) to anesthetized dogs, the drug concentration was found much higher in the myocardium than in the plasma (about 4,000 ng/g, i.e., 50 times higher). After the intravenous infusion of doxorubicin (1.5 mg/kg over 15 min) to conscious dogs, the drug concentration appeared to decline(More)
In 6 patients with acute myeloblastic leukaemia, daunorubicin was assayed in leukaemic cells from peripheral blood or bone marrow. The cells were separated from red blood cells and granulocytes by centrifugation on a Ficoll-Isopac gradient. The assay was performed by high performance liquid chromatography. Daunorubicin concentrations in peripheral leukaemic(More)
The detection of bone marrow involvement might be of prognostic value and may influence therapeutic decisions in small cell lung cancer. By unilateral bone marrow aspiration and biopsy, evidence of bone marrow metastases is seen in 15-30% of patients with this disease. Since magnetic resonance imaging of the lower body and immunostaining with monoclonal(More)
The real need for extensive staging at the time of diagnosis is discussed in regard to small cell lung carcinoma. We performed a decisional retrospective analysis on a series of 182 patients, based on three staging steps: the first step included physical examination and routine biologic tests. The second step consisted of liver ultrasonography and needle(More)
From January 1986 through December 1988, 227 patients were included in a multi-institutional pilot study for small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Out of the 211 patients who fully completed the staging procedures, 77 (35%) appeared to have SCLC limited to the thorax. All patients received combination therapy consisting of AVI (Adriamycin, VP-16 and Ifosfamide),(More)
Infections of the respiratory airways are frequently responsible for exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and attacks of asthma. However, the causal infectious agents in practice are rarely precisely identified. We have undertaken a prospective study with the aim of researching into the bacteria and viruses associated with these(More)
The occurrence of cerebral metastases is a frequent event in the natural history of many cancers, the main primary lesions being lung and breast cancer. Such metastases are of very poor prognosis, since the median survival time is less than one year. The therapeutic approach is determined after careful pretreatment evaluation including: measurement of the(More)
Nineteen patients with severe aplastic anaemia were treated with 21 courses of horse antithymocyte globulins (ATG). Changes in haematological parameters were correlated with ATG dosage. One of the 11 patients who received less than 100 mg/kg is still alive after more than 12 months. One of the 10 patients who received more than 100 mg/kg died of infection;(More)
