The purpose of this Phase 2 clinical research study is to examine the safety of an experimental gene transfer agent, Ad2/HIF-1α/VP16, and its ability to stimulate the growth of new blood ...
Conservative treatments of retinoblastoma (RETINO 2011) 1. -Multicentric non randomised, phase II study for the patients treated by chemoreduction (VP16, carboplatin) followed by c...
This study evaluates the efficacy and tolerability of treatment for T-lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-LBL) according to a protocol for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Patients receive one year of ...
The ALL SCTped 2012 FORUM is a multinational, multi-centre, randomized, controlled, prospective seamless phase II/III study for the therapy and therapy optimisation for children and adoles...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as treosulfan and fludarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from d...
Unexpected peptide deformylase (PDF) genes were recently retrieved in numerous marine phage genomes. While various hypotheses dealing with the occurrence of these intriguing sequences have been made, ...
Prokaryotic proteins must be deformylated before the removal of their first methionine. Peptide deformylase (PDF) is indispensable and guarantees this mechanism. Recent metagenomics studies revealed n...
In this prospective randomized phase II "pick the winner" trial we assessed the efficacy of transplant conditioning with treosulfan/fludarabine ± 2 Gy total body irradiation (TBI) in reducing post-tr...
There are very few reports of reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) with alternate donor for Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) and there is no report of RIC with ...
Sequential Conditioning with Thiotepa in T-Cell Replete Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation for the Treatment of Refractory Hematological Malignancies: Comparison with Matched Related, Haplo-Mismatched and Unrelated Donors.
The results of conventional allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) in refractory hematological malignancies are poor. Sequential strategies have shown promising results in refractory acute myeloid...
A cellular transcriptional coactivator that was originally identified by its requirement for the stable assembly IMMEDIATE-EARLY PROTEINS of the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS. It is a nuclear protein that is a transcriptional coactivator for a number of transcription factors including VP16 PROTEIN; GA-BINDING PROTEIN; EARLY GROWTH RESPONSE PROTEIN 2; and E2F4 TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR. It also interacts with and stabilizes HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS PROTEIN VMW65 and helps regulate GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION of IMMEDIATE-EARLY GENES in HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS.
A very toxic alkylating antineoplastic agent also used as an insect sterilant. It causes skin, gastrointestinal, CNS, and bone marrow damage. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), thiotepa may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen (Merck Index, 11th ed).
A neoplasm characterized by abnormalities of the lymphoid cell precursors leading to excessive lymphoblasts in the marrow and other organs. It is the most common cancer in children and accounts for the vast majority of all childhood leukemias.
A transcription factor that plays a role as a key regulator of HEMATOPOIESIS. Aberrant Ikaros expression has been associated with LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA.
A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.
