The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency with which magnetic resonance (MR) imaging detects avascular necrosis of the bone (AVNB) in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or advanced-stage non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) who receive prednisone during remission induction, reinduction, and maintenance chemotherapy; to assess the clinical(More)
Fourteen children (ages 2-15 years) with acute leukemia in relapse were treated with daily recombinant interferon gamma for 14 days by subcutaneous injections at fixed dose levels of 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, or 0.75 mg/m2 (1.0, 2.5, 5.0, or 7.5 x 10(6) units/m2) without intrapatient escalation. Patients received a second 14-day course of therapy followed by thrice(More)
Children with ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) and cancer have a poorer prognosis due in part to increased treatment-related toxicity. We piloted a curative intent approach in five children with A-T who presented with advanced stage (III, n = 2; IV, n = 3) B-NHL (diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, n = 4; Burkitt leukemia, n = 1) using a modified LMB-based protocol.(More)
Late follow-up (average = 7.2 years) has been obtained in 249 patients with mitral valve disease who had quantitative angiographic assessment of left ventricular function at thetime of initial catheterization in the 1960s. Surgically treated patients with mitral valve disease had significantly improved survival as compared to medically treated patients with(More)
Ten of 25 thyrotoxic patients treated with sodium iodine I 131 had thyroid function test results that indicated a high triiodothyronine (T3) level, with normal thyroxine (T4) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels, within 15 months of treatment. This pattern was usually transitional and lasted a variable time, eventually leading to euthyroidism,(More)
