Standardized guidelines for response assessment are needed to ensure comparability among clinical trials in non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL). To achieve this, two meetings were convened among United States and international lymphoma experts representing medical hematology/oncology, radiology, radiation oncology, and pathology to review currently used response(More)
BACKGROUND Oncologic literature cites many different definitions of critical response measurements. PATIENTS AND METHODS Response criteria (RC) for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) were developed by lymphoma experts, endorsed by international lymphoma clinicians, and applied to a 166-patient rituximab (Rituxan, MabThera) trial by a third-party, blinded panel(More)
The biochemical mechanism of toxicity of the experimental astrocyte neurotoxicant and food contaminant S-3-chloro-1,2-propanediol (3-CPD) has been proposed to be via inhibition of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH). We have confirmed this action in liver, which shows inhibition to 6.0+/-0.7% control at the neuropathic dose of 140 mg/kg.(More)
The effect of immunizing against somatostatin (SRIF), with SRIF conjugated to bovine thyroglobulin, was examined in cross-bred sheep fed either cut pasture or lucerne pellets. Plasma concentrations of GH were unaffected by SRIF immunization, but were lower in pellet-fed sheep. Plasma concentrations of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) increased after(More)
We evaluated the efficacy and safety of patient-specific immunotherapy with mitumprotimut-T idiotype keyhole limpet hemocyanin and granulocyte-monocyte colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) following rituximab in patients with follicular B-cell lymphoma. Patients with previously untreated or relapsed/refractory CD20+ follicular lymphoma received 4 weekly(More)
PURPOSE To determine the accuracy of breath-hold gadolinium- and perflubron-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, immunoscintigraphy with indium-111-CYT-103 (planar and single photon emission computed tomography [CT]), and contrast material-enhanced CT for the detection of ovarian cancer prior to laparotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen patients with(More)
VITAMIN B3 may be defined as a factor required for full weight restoration in the pigeon on a diet which, in addition to vitamins B1 and B5, includes an adequate supply of basal dietary constituents such as salts and protein. We have previously shown [Carter and O'Brien, 1935] that one of the factors involved in the failure of pigeons on a rice diet to(More)
We report here observational results demonstrating that a three-station network of properly distributed VLBI observatories can routinely determine UT1 with a formal standard error of ±0.05 ms of time, in an observing period of 24 h. We also report the results of a three-month series of daily observing sessions of only 1-h duration with a single(More)
