The purpose of this study is to understand the impact of sirolimus on idiopathic multicentric Castleman disease.
To explore the effectiveness and safety of thalidomide, cyclophosphamide and prednisone (TCP regimen) in newly diagnosed Multicentric Castleman's disease (MCD) patients.
The study is being conducted to demonstrate that CNTO 328 in combination with best supportive care is superior to best supportive care in terms of durable tumor and symptomatic response (r...
This trial is aimed to study the efficacy of 4 weekly cycles of rituximab in HIV-infected patients with multicentric Castleman disease (giant lymph node hyperplasia) dependent on chemother...
The purpose of the study is to learn whether people who are experiencing an MCD (multicentric Castleman's Disease) flare will improve after taking valganciclovir. MCD is a type of inflamm...
Castleman disease (CD) is a rare pathologic process of unknown etiology, characterized by non-neoplastic lymph node enlargement. Two distinct histologic patterns are recognized; the hyaline-vascular t...
Castleman Disease (CD) is a rare, heterogeneous group of hyperimmune lymphoproliferative disorders, not very familiar to surgeons. Unicentric Castleman Disease (UCCD) at one end of the spectrum is a l...
Bortezomib, a first generation proteasome inhibitor, is used in both newly diagnosed and relapsed myeloma settings. Considerable differences exist in the usage of bortezomib therapy in the clinical pr...
Castleman's disease (CD) is a rare disorder characterized by proliferation of the lymphoid tissue. Clinically, it presents in two forms either a unicentric (UC) or multicentric. Mediastinum is the mos...
Castleman disease (CD) is a rare polyclonal lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown etiology, which usually develops in the mediastinum. It can also occur in the cervical, retroperitoneal and axillary...
Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.
Syndromes of bone destruction where the cause is not obvious such as neoplasia, infection, or trauma. The destruction follows various patterns: massive (Gorham disease), multicentric (HAJDU-CHENEY SYNDROME), or carpal/tarsal.
Large benign, hyperplastic lymph nodes. The more common hyaline vascular subtype is characterized by small hyaline vascular follicles and interfollicular capillary proliferations. Plasma cells are often present and represent another subtype with the plasma cells containing IgM and IMMUNOGLOBULIN A.
A pyrazine and boronic acid derivative that functions as a reversible PROTEASOME INHIBITOR. It is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of MULTIPLE MYELOMA and MANTLE CELL LYMPHOMA.
Thrombocytopenia occurring in the absence of toxic exposure or a disease associated with decreased platelets. It is mediated by immune mechanisms, in most cases IMMUNOGLOBULIN G autoantibodies which attach to platelets and subsequently undergo destruction by macrophages. The disease is seen in acute (affecting children) and chronic (adult) forms.
