Comparative analyses of nilotinib versus high-dose imatinib versus sustained standard-dose imatinib in patients with chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia following suboptimal molecular response to first-line imatinib.
The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of nilotinib (NIL) versus high-dose imatinib (IM) versus sustained standard-dose IM for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) with suboptimal molecular response to first-line IM therapy. Patients with CML who achieved complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) but not major molecular response (MMR) after 18-24 months on first-line IM therapy were enrolled and divided into three treatment cohorts: NIL 800 mg/day (Cohort 1, n = 28) and IM 800 mg/d...
Imatinib at 400 mg daily is the standard treatment for patients affected with CML and GIST. The intervariability in plasma concentration is very significant. In many reports, a good therapeutic effect is attributed to an adequate concentration of Imatinib. However, few studies have been conducted to investigate the association between plasma concentration and side effects. Besides, no upper concentration limit of Imatinib plasma concentration detection has been established. The correlation of Imatinib trou...
Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) is a severe, potentially life-threatening drug-induced hypersensitivity reaction, characterized by cutaneous eruptions, fever, diffuse lymphadenopathy, along with hypereosinophilia, and elevated liver function tests, which in severe cases may lead to fulminant hepatic failure and death. Although DRESS syndrome has been associated with over 50 different drugs including imatinib, it has never been reported in association with imatinib treatment in ...
Imatinib has revolutionized the treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST); however, primary and secondary resistance to imatinib is still a major cause of treatment failure. Multiple mechanisms are involved in this progression. In the present study, we reported a novel mechanism for the acquired resistance to imatinib, which was induced by enhanced Ca2 influx via stromal-interacting molecule 1 (STIM1)-mediated store-operated Ca2 entry (SOCE). We found that the STIM1 expression level was related to...
To examine whether a high-dose inactivated influenza vaccine was more efficacious in preventing hospitalizations than a standard-dose vaccine in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) senior population.
The p53 gene is also known as tumor suppressor p53. The main functions of the p53 gene are an anticancer effect and cellular genomic stability via various pathways including activation of DNA repair, induction of apoptosis, and arresting of cell growth at the G1/S phase. Normally, the p53 gene is inactivated by mouse double minute 2 proteins (mdm2), but it is activated in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Tyrosine kinase inhibitors are effective chemotherapeutic agents in the management of CML. The purpose of...
To compared the diagnostic performance of low-dose (LD) lumbar-spine (L-spine) CT with that of standard-dose (SD) L-spine CT.
To compare image quality, observer confidence, radiation exposure in the standard-dose (SD-CCTA) and low-dose (LD-CCTA) protocols of coronary CT angiography (CCTA) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF).
Influenza is responsible for a significant disease burden annually, especially in older adults. This study reviews the relative vaccine efficacy or effectiveness (rVE) of high-dose inactivated trivalent influenza vaccine (HD-IIV3) compared to standard-dose influenza vaccines (IIV3) in adults ≥65 against influenza-associated outcomes to inform evidence-based decision-making to shift clinical practice and standard of care in this population.
Patients with ruptured gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) are recommended for imatinib adjuvant therapy; however, their clinicopathological features and prognosis in the era of imatinib are unknown.
The Japan Adult Leukemia Study Group (JALSG) Ph+ALL202 study reported a high complete remission (CR) rate for Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ALL) patients treated with imatinib-combined chemotherapy. However, the long-term treatment efficacy remains uncertain. Here, we report a final analysis of the JALSG Ph+ALL202 study. The outcomes were compared with those of the JALSG ALL93 and ALL97 studies, which were conducted in the pre-imatinib era. Ninety-nine newly diagnosed Ph+...
This study investigates whether administration of low doses of gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA) for dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be as effective as a standard dose in distinguishing prostate cancer (PCa) from benign tissue. In addition, we evaluated the combination of kinetic parameters from the low- and high-dose injection as a new diagnostic marker.
The present study was designed to investigate if elevated copper level can be targeted to enhance the efficacy of a significant anticancer drug, imatinib (ITB). The antineoplastic activity of this drug was assessed in the HepG2, HEK-293, MCF-7 and MDA-MD-231 cells targeting elevated copper level as their common drug target. The cell lines were treated with the different doses of copper chloride (Cu II) and disulfiram (DSF) alone as well as in their combinations with the drug for 24 h in standard culture m...
Consolidation in myeloma patients with high-dose melphalan chemotherapy (Mel HDCT) and autologous transplantation (ASCT) is standard of care since more than two decades. However, definite cure remains exceptional despite intensive treatment, and improving effectiveness of HDCT remains an unmet clinical need. Combining intensified bendamustine with melphalan may represent an option. We analyzed safety and efficacy of combining dose-intensified bendamustine (200 mg/m on days -4/-3) with high-dose melphalan (1...
Split dose of 4 l polyethylene glycol (PEG) is currently the standard regimen for bowel preparation (BP). However, it may be unnecessary for patients without high risks (e.g., old age, constipation, and diabetes, and so on) for inadequate BP. The study aimed to compare the efficacy of bowel cleansing between low-risk patients receiving same-day, single dose of low-volume (SSL) PEG vs. standard regimen.
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematopoietic malignancy characterized by the t(9; 22) and the related oncogene, BCR-ABL. Tyrosine kinase activity of fusion protein BCR-ABL is the main cause of CML. Even if imatinib is used as a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) for CML therapy, drug resistance may occur in patients and the clinical failure of imatinib treatment in resistant patients had resulted with the use of another alternative TKIs. BCR-ABL dependent and independent molecular mechanisms have crucial ...
The present study explored the events of angiogenesis and apoptosis in 7,12-dimethyl benz(a)anthracene (DMBA)-induced lung cancer in rat and its chemoprevention with Imatinib, a receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Further, it includes lipopolysaccharide (LPS) mediating inflammation along with DMBA for the promotion of lung carcinogenesis. The animals received a single intratracheal instillation of DMBA (20 mg/kg body weight) in olive oil and LPS (0.6 mg/kg body weight) to induce tumors in 16 weeks. Bes...
In 2014, Joensuu and colleagues devised the first recurrence risk score (RRS) to identify the risk factors for gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) recurrence. However, there are scarce data available on RRS effectiveness and efficiency. Therefore, we retrospectively analyzed clinical data to validate Joensuu's RRS in patients treated with adjuvant imatinib.In this retrospective cohort study, data were collected from patients with GIST who were treated with adjuvant imatinib between December 2005 and May 2...
A comparative study of radiation dose measured in anthropomorphic phantoms.
VRE are associated with ∼1300 deaths per year in the USA. Recent literature suggests that daptomycin, a cyclic lipopeptide antibiotic with concentration-dependent bactericidal activity, is the preferred treatment option for VRE bacteraemia, yet the optimal dosing strategy for this indication has not been established. In vitro evidence suggests that higher-than-labelled doses of daptomycin are required to optimally treat VRE bacteraemia and to inhibit the development of resistance. However, concern of dose...
Stereotactic radiotherapy, which delivers an ablative high radiation dose to a target volume for maximum local tumor control, requires a rapid dose fall-off outside the target volume to prevent extensive damage to nearby normal tissue. Currently, there is no tool to comprehensively evaluate the dose gradient near the target volume. We propose the dose gradient curve (DGC) as a new tool to evaluate the quality of a treatment plan with respect to the dose fall-off characteristics.
The combination of intermediate-dose cytarabine plus mitoxantrone (IMA) can induce high complete remission rates with acceptable toxicity in elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We present the final results of a randomized-controlled trial comparing IMA with the standard 7 + 3 induction regimen consisting of continuous infusion daunorubicin plus cytarabine (DA).
To compare immunogenicity, reactogenicity and acceptability of high- and standard-dose trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (HDTIV, SDTIV) in 18-64 year olds.
We previously reported on the lack of utility of the 1 mg overnight dexamethasone (DEX) test in mild and/or periodic Cushing's syndrome, as most patients with the condition suppressed to 1 mg DEX. It is possible that a lower dose of DEX as part of an overnight DEX test might be able to distinguish between mild and/or periodic Cushing's syndrome and those without the condition. The objective of the current study is to determine the sensitivity and specificity of a 0.25 mg overnight DEX suppression test...
