The utility of imatinib in either the pre- or post-transplant period for Ph chromosome-positive (Ph+) ALL is uncertain. In addition, there have been recent concerns regarding imatinib and cardiac toxicity. We investigated the outcome of 32 patients with Ph+ ALL who received an allo-hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) at the University of Minnesota between(More)
Since the introduction of imatinib mesylate, the role of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) for CML has essentially been reserved for patients with advanced disease or imatinib resistance. In addition, there have been concerns regarding imatinib associated cardiac toxicity. We investigated the outcome of 61 patients with CML who(More)
Non-myeloablative (NMA) allogeneic donor SCT for patients with relapsed lymphoma is associated with lower treatment-related mortality (TRM). However, the impact of conditioning intensity on post transplant infections remains unclear. We evaluated infections in 141 consecutive patients with lymphoma who were allografted using NMA (n=76) or myeloablative (MA;(More)
The goal of this work was to evaluate concordance between (a) actual flow cytometric crossmatch (FCXM) that is performed by the OPO laboratory servicing our transplant center and (b) virtual XM (vXM) prediction based on antibody identification by solid-phase methods performed in our laboratory. A total of 1586 FCXM, performed between June 2007 and September(More)
Innotecan, administered i.v. on days 1-5 and 8-12 [(dx5)2 i.v.] has demonstrated significant activity against advanced human tumor xenografts. To explore the feasibility of prolonged oral administration of irinotecan, we compared the efficacy of oral and i.v. irinotecan on the (dx5)2 schedule. We also evaluated oral therapy for 12 consecutive weeks(More)
