BACKGROUND MST-16, a new orally administered bis(2,6-dioxopiperazine) analogue and an inhibitor of topoisomerase II, was given to 24 patients with adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATLL) in a Phase I-II multi-institutional cooperative study. METHODS MST-16 was administered orally daily for 7 days, with courses repeated at intervals of 2-3 weeks in 24(More)
The esophagus was totally examined in 264 autopsied cases and 61 operated cases, for a total of 325 cases, to clarify the histogenesis of squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. Epithelial dysplasia of the mucosa was present in 27% and subclinical carcinoma was found in 2.4%. Hyperplasia of the duct of the esophageal gland proper was present in 34% and(More)
We report an autopsy case of acute erythremia which terminated in generalized infiltration of immature blasts similar to proerythroblasts. A 61-year-old man was admitted because of general fatigue and fever in June, 1990. Mild anemia and severe thrombocytopenia were noted. The bone marrow was hypocellular with 25.5% blasts similar to proerythroblasts and(More)
BACKGROUND Although razoxane (ICRF-159), a derivative of bis(2,6-dioxopiperazine), has shown significant antitumor activity in several murine tumors, inadequate bioavailability has limited its clinical efficacy. Sobuzoxane (MST-16), another derivative of bis(2,6-dioxopiperazine), has shown activity against a broad spectrum of murine tumors and human tumor(More)
A phase II study of new anthracycline, THP, was conducted in 46 patients with hematological malignancies in a cooperative study. THP was given intravenously either at a dose of 13–34 mg/m2 for 3–5 consecutive days or 35–50 mg/m2 at 3–4 week intervals. Of 21 patients with acute leukemia, complete response (CR) was observed in 3 patients and partial response(More)
The esophagus was totally excised for histopathological examination in 276 autopsy cases and 66 surgical cases (total, 342 cases). Leiomyoma of the esophagus was observed in 27 of the 342 cases. The tumors were present in 22 of the 225 male cases and in 5 of the 117 female cases. There were 38 leiomyomas among the 27 cases. Most of the leiomyomas originated(More)
