The goal of this trial is to determine the safety of HSPPC-96 and which route of administration achieves a better response with the vaccine. HSPPC-96 is an immunotherapeutic agent made fro...
The Phase 2 trial is a single-arm, open label investigation designed to evaluate safety, median survival, and immune response in patients treated with an autologous tumor-derived heat shoc...
Determine whether patients receiving adjuvant HSPPC-96 treatment after surgically resected, locally advanced renal cell carcinoma have improved recurrence-free survival as compared to subj...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Vaccines made from a person's cancer cells may make the body build a...
This phase I study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of an autologous idiotype vaccine manufactured by magnICON technology for patients with relapsed follicular lymphoma who are in...
Patients with follicular lymphoma (FL) and progression-of-disease (POD) within 24 months after frontline treatment (POD24) have poor overall survival (OS). The optimal salvage treatment for these pati...
This study concerning mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) investigated retrospectively an association between patient prognosis and the percentage of the total number of lymphoma cells found in the follicular ...
Cytokine production is essential for follicular dendritic cell (FDC) maintenance and organization of germinal centres. In follicular lymphoma, FDCs are often disarrayed and may lack antigens indicativ...
Distinguishing malignancy from benign thyroid nodule has always been challenging, especially in follicular lesions. Thyroid nodules with small size and indeterminate cytology do not lead to immediate ...
Low-grade follicular lymphomas are genetically characterized by the translocation t(14; 18)(q32;q21) with BCL2 gene rearrangements. Marginal zone lymphomas are often associated with translocations or ...
Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.
The B-cell leukemia/lymphoma-2 genes, responsible for blocking apoptosis in normal cells, and associated with follicular lymphoma when overexpressed. Overexpression results from the t(14;18) translocation. The human c-bcl-2 gene is located at 18q24 on the long arm of chromosome 18.
A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.
Lymphocytes that show specificity for autologous tumor cells. Ex vivo isolation and culturing of TIL with interleukin-2, followed by reinfusion into the patient, is one form of adoptive immunotherapy of cancer.
A rare neoplasm of large B-cells usually presenting as serious effusions without detectable tumor masses. The most common sites of involvement are the pleural, pericardial, and peritoneal cavities. It is associated with HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 8, most often occurring in the setting of immunodeficiency.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
