Phase I trial of dolastatin-10 (NSC 376128) in patients with advanced solid tumors. (1/458)

Dolastatin-10 (dola-10) is a potent antimitotic peptide, isolated from the marine mollusk Dolabela auricularia, that inhibits tubulin polymerization. Preclinical studies of dola-10 have demonstrated activity against a variety of murine and human tumors in cell cultures and mice models. The purpose of this Phase I clinical trial was to characterize the maximum tolerated dose, pharmacokinetics, and biological effects of dola-10 in patients with advanced solid tumors. Escalating doses of dola-10 were administered as an i.v. bolus every 21 days, using a modified Fibonacci dose escalation schema. Pharmacokinetic studies were performed with the first treatment cycle. Neurological testing was performed on each patient prior to treatment with dola-10, at 6 weeks and at study termination. Thirty eligible patients received a total of 94 cycles (median, 2 cycles; maximum, 14 cycles) of dola-10 at doses ranging from 65 to 455 microg/m2. Dose-limiting toxicity of granulocytopenia was seen at 455 microg/m2 for minimally pretreated patients (two or fewer prior chemotherapy regimens) and 325 microg/m2 for heavily pretreated patients (more than two prior chemotherapy regimens). Nonhematological toxicity was generally mild. Local irritation at the drug injection site was mild and not dose dependent. Nine patients developed new or increased symptoms of mild peripheral sensory neuropathy that was not dose limiting. This toxicity was more frequent in patients with preexisting peripheral neuropathies. Pharmacokinetic studies demonstrated a rapid drug distribution with a prolonged plasma elimination phase (t 1/2z = 320 min). The area under the concentration-time curve increased in proportion to administered dose, whereas the clearance remained constant over the doses studied. Correlation analysis demonstrated a strong relationship between dola-10 area under the concentration-time curve values and decrease from baseline for leukocyte counts. In conclusion, dola-10 administered every 3 weeks as a peripheral i.v. bolus is well tolerated with dose-limiting toxicity of granulocytopenia. The maximum tolerated dose (and recommended Phase II starting dose) is 400 microg/m2 for patients with minimal prior treatment (two or fewer prior chemotherapy regimens) and 325 microg/m2 for patients who are heavily pretreated (more than two prior chemotherapy regimens).  (+info)

Agranulocytosis in Bangkok, Thailand: a predominantly drug-induced disease with an unusually low incidence. Aplastic Anemia Study Group. (2/458)

Agranulocytosis, a syndrome characterized by a marked reduction in circulating granulocytes, is strongly associated with medical drug use in Europe and the United States. Unregulated use of common pharmaceutical agents in developing countries has been suspected of causing large numbers of cases of agranulocytosis and deaths, especially among children. To elucidate the incidence and etiology of agranulocytosis in Thailand, a population-based case-control study of symptomatic agranulocytosis that resulted in hospital admission was conducted in Bangkok from 1990 to 1994. An attempt was also made to study the disease in Khonkaen (in northeastern Thailand) and Songkla (in southern Thailand), but there were insufficient cases in the latter regions, and the analysis was confined to subjects from Bangkok. In that region, the overall incidence of agranulocytosis was 0.8 per million per year; there were no deaths. As expected, the incidence was higher in females (0.9 per million), and it increased with age (4.3 per million beyond age 60). Among 25 cases and 529 controls the relative risk estimate for a combined category of all suspect drugs was 9.2 (95% confidence interval = 3.9-21), and the proportion of cases that could be attributed to drug use was 68%. For individual drugs and drug classes the data were sparse; within these limitations, the strongest association appeared to be with antithyroid drugs. One case and three controls were exposed to dipyrone, a drug known to cause agranulocytosis; with such scanty data the risk could not be evaluated. Exposure to pesticides or solvents was not associated with an increased risk. This is the first formal epidemiologic study of agranulocytosis in a developing country. As in the West, most cases are attributable to medical drug use. However, the incidence of agranulocytosis in Bangkok, and apparently, in Thailand as a whole, is unusually low, and the disease does not pose a public health risk.  (+info)

Phase I study of a biweekly schedule of a fixed dose of cisplatin with increasing doses of paclitaxel in patients with advanced oesophageal cancer. (3/458)

We performed this dose-finding study with a fixed dose of cisplatin and increasing doses of paclitaxel given every 2 weeks to determine the maximum tolerable dose of this schedule. Sixty-four patients with advanced oesophageal cancer were treated with a cisplatin dose of 60 mg m(-2) and increasing doses of paclitaxel from 100 mg m(-2) up to 200 mg m(-2) both administered over 3 h for a maximum of six cycles in patients with stable disease or eight cycles in responding patients. Patients were retreated when the granulocytes were > 0.75 x 10(9) l(-1) and the platelets > 75 x 10(9) l(-1). The dose of paclitaxel could be increased to 200 mg m(-2) without encountering dose limiting haematological toxicity. At the dose levels 190 mg m(-2) and 200 mg m(-2) of paclitaxel cumulative sensory neurotoxicity became the dose-limiting toxicity. The dose intensity of paclitaxel calculated over six cycles rose from 50 mg m(-2) per week to 85 mg m(-2) per week. Only three episodes of granulocytopenic fever were encountered out of a total of 362 cycles of treatment. Of the 59 patients evaluable for response, 31 (52%) had a partial or complete response. In a biweekly schedule with a fixed dose of 60 mg m(-2) cisplatin it is possible to increase the dose of paclitaxel to 180 mg m(-2). At higher dose levels, neurotoxicity becomes the dose-limiting toxicity. The observed response rate warrants further investigation of this schedule.  (+info)

Oral versus intravenous empirical antimicrobial therapy for fever in patients with granulocytopenia who are receiving cancer chemotherapy. International Antimicrobial Therapy Cooperative Group of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer. (4/458)

BACKGROUND: Intravenously administered antimicrobial agents have been the standard choice for the empirical management of fever in patients with cancer and granulocytopenia. If orally administered empirical therapy is as effective as intravenous therapy, it would offer advantages such as improved quality of life and lower cost. METHODS: In a prospective, open-label, multicenter trial, we randomly assigned febrile patients with cancer who had granulocytopenia that was expected to resolve within 10 days to receive empirical therapy with either oral ciprofloxacin (750 mg twice daily) plus amoxicillin-clavulanate (625 mg three times daily) or standard daily doses of intravenous ceftriaxone plus amikacin. All patients were hospitalized until their fever resolved. The primary objective of the study was to determine whether there was equivalence between the regimens, defined as an absolute difference in the rates of success of 10 percent or less. RESULTS: Equivalence was demonstrated at the second interim analysis, and the trial was terminated after the enrollment of 353 patients. In the analysis of the 312 patients who were treated according to the protocol and who could be evaluated, treatment was successful in 86 percent of the patients in the oral-therapy group (95 percent confidence interval, 80 to 91 percent) and 84 percent of those in the intravenous-therapy group (95 percent confidence interval, 78 to 90 percent; P=0.02). The results were similar in the intention-to-treat analysis (80 percent and 77 percent, respectively; P=0.03), as were the duration of fever, the time to a change in the regimen, the reasons for such a change, the duration of therapy, and survival. The types of adverse events differed slightly between the groups but were similar in frequency. CONCLUSIONS: In low-risk patients with cancer who have fever and granulocytopenia, oral therapy with ciprofloxacin plus amoxicillin-clavulanate is as effective as intravenous therapy.  (+info)

Murine neutrophil stimulation by Toxoplasma gondii antigen drives high level production of IFN-gamma-independent IL-12. (5/458)

Successful immunity to Toxoplasma gondii requires a strong cell-mediated immune response. Neutrophils possess the ability to rapidly migrate into tissues in response to microbial stimuli. Therefore, we sought to determine whether murine neutrophils could respond to T. gondii by producing immunoregulatory cytokines. We show that murine neutrophils produce high levels of IL-12 and low, but significant, levels of TNF-alpha when stimulated with T. gondii Ag. Both cytokines are produced in the absence of IFN-gamma. Production of IL-12 does not require TNFR p55, and release of TNF-alpha occurs independently of IL-12. We show that there is an influx of neutrophils into the peritoneal cavity that peaks at approximately 8 h in response to injection of live tachyzoites and that this is correlated with increased transcription of IL-12 p40. Our results establish that murine neutrophils possess the ability to produce immunoregulatory cytokines during T. gondii infection and suggest that this response may be important in early host defense and in triggering cell-mediated immunity to the parasite.  (+info)

Different effect of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor or bacterial infection on bone-marrow cells of cyclophosphamide-treated or irradiated mice. (6/458)

In the present study, the effect of treatment with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) on cellular composition of the bone marrow and the number of circulating leucocytes of granulocytopenic mice, whether or not infected with Staphylococcus aureus, was assessed. With two monoclonal antibodies, six morphologically distinct cell populations in the bone marrow could be characterised and quantitated by two-dimensional flow cytometry. Granulocytopenia was induced by cyclophosphamide or sublethal irradiation. Cyclophosphamide predominantly affected the later stages of dividing cells in the bone marrow resulting in a decrease in number of granulocytic cells, monocytic cells, lymphoid cells and myeloid blasts. G-CSF administration to cyclophosphamide-treated mice increased the number of early blasts, myeloid blasts and granulocytic cells in the bone marrow, which indicates that this growth factor stimulates the proliferation of these cells in the bone marrow. During infection in cyclophosphamide-treated mice the number of myeloid blasts increased. However, when an infection was induced in cyclophosphamide and G-CSF-treated mice, the proliferation of bone-marrow cells was not changed compared to that in noninfected similarly treated mice. Sublethal irradiation affected all bone-marrow cell populations, including the early blasts. G-CSF-treatment of irradiated mice increased only the number of myeloid blasts slightly, whereas an infection in irradiated mice, whether or not treated with G-CSF, did not affect the number of bone-marrow cells. Together, these studies demonstrated that irradiation affects the early blasts and myeloid blasts in the bone marrow more severely than treatment with cyclophosphamide. Irradiation probably depletes the bone marrow from G-CSF-responsive cells, while cyclophosphamide spared G-CSF responsive cells, thus enabling the enhanced G-CSF-mediated recovery after cyclophosphamide treatment. Only in these mice, bone marrow recovery is followed by a strong mobilisation of mature granulocytes and their band forms from the bone marrow into the circulation during a bacterial infection.  (+info)

Fludarabine-based chemotherapy in untreated mantle cell lymphomas: an encouraging experience in 29 patients. (7/458)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: A prospective study to evaluate the role of fludarabine alone or in combination with idarubicin in untreated patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). DESIGN AND METHODS: Twenty-nine untreated patients with mantle cell lymphoma were stochastically treated with intravenous fludarabine at a dose of 25 mg/m(2)/day for 5 days (11 patients) or with a combination of fludarabine and idarubicin (FLU-ID) (fludarabine 25 mg/m(2) i.v. on days 1 to 3 and idarubicin 12 mg/m(2) i.v. on day 1 (18 patients). For both regimens, cycles were given at three-week intervals for a total of six courses. According to the International Prognostic Index, the most part of high-intermediate and high risk factor patients were in the FLU-ID subset: 7 (39%) patients vs. 2 (18%) in the fludarabine alone subset. RESULTS: Of the 29 patients, 8 (28%) obtained a complete response and 10 (35%) a partial response, with an overall response rate of 63%. The remaining 11 (37%) patients did not respond to the therapy. The overall response rates were 64% (7 patients) in the fludarabine group and 61% (11 patients) in the FLU-ID group. The complete response rate was 27% (3 patients) for fludarabine and 28% (5 patients) for FLU-ID. The toxicity was mild in terms of neutropenia and infections, and no fatalities occurred due to drug-induced side effects. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest the efficacy of fludarabine alone or in combination with idarubicin in MCL patients. It will be important to increase this experience and to assess other fludarabine-containing regimens, in particular with cyclophosphamide plus idarubicin and with mitoxantrone and or cyclophosphamide, to test the true role of this approach in MCL.  (+info)

Gemcitabine plus cisplatin, an active regimen in advanced urothelial cancer: a phase II trial of the National Cancer Institute of Canada Clinical Trials Group. (8/458)

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of gemcitabine (2', 2'-difluorodeoxycytidine) plus cisplatin in previously untreated patients with advanced transitional-cell carcinoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty-one patients with measurable advanced transitional-cell carcinoma who had received no prior chemotherapy for metastatic disease were scheduled to receive gemcitabine 1,000 mg/m(2) intravenously over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15 and cisplatin 70 mg/m(2) over 1 hour on day 2 of a 28-day cycle. Prior adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapy for locally advanced disease was allowed if this was completed more than 1 year before study entry. RESULTS: There were six complete responses and 10 partial responses in 28 assessable patients, for an overall response rate of 16 of 28 (57%). The response rate on an intent-to-treat basis was 16 of 31 patients (52%). The median survival is 13.2 months, with 18 patients still alive at this time. Toxicity was primarily hematologic, with 12 of 31 patients (39%) having > or = grade 3 granulocytopenia and 17 of 31 (55%) having > or = grade 3 thrombocytopenia. Two patients had febrile neutropenia. All patients required a dose modification of gemcitabine at some point in their therapy; the primary reason was thrombocytopenia and/or neutropenia. CONCLUSION: Gemcitabine plus cisplatin is an active regimen for the treatment of urothelial cancer.  (+info)

Agranulocytosis, also known as agranulosis or granulopenia, is an acute condition involving a severe and dangerous leukopenia (lowered white blood cell count), most commonly of neutrophils causing a neutropenia in the circulating blood. It is a severe lack of one major class of infection-fighting white blood cells. People with this condition are at very high risk of serious infections due to their suppressed immune system. In agranulocytosis, the concentration of granulocytes (a major class of white blood cells that includes neutrophils, basophils, and eosinophils) drops below 500 cells/mm³ of blood. The term agranulocytosis derives from the Greek: a, meaning without; granulocyte, a particular kind of white blood cell (containing granules in its cytoplasm); and osis, meaning condition [esp. disorder]. Consequently, agranulocytosis is sometimes described as no granulocytes, but a total absence is not required for diagnosis. However, -osis is commonly used in blood disorders to imply cell ...

To the editor: Adverse reactions to drugs are an important cause of hospital-acquired illness, occurring in 10% to 18% of medical patients (1) and producing fatality rates of up to 13%. Drug-induced neutropenia or agranulocytosis has been associated with many types of drugs and often is associated with a fatal outcome. Recently Hoppin and colleagues (2) described three cases of pentazocine-related agranulocytosis. All of their cases occurred in patients with previously injured bone marrows but with normal peripheral granulocyte counts before this phenomenon.. We wish to present an additional case of pentazocine-induced agranulocytosis, but one that occurred without a previous ...

Not enough neutrophils, neutrophils being a type of white blood cell (specifically a form of granulocyte) filled with neutrally-staining granules, tiny sacs of enzymes that help the cell to kill and digest microorganisms it has engulfed by phagocytosis. The mature neutrophil has a segmented nucleus (it is called a seg or poly) while the immature neutrophil has band-shape nucleus (it is called a band). The neutrophil has a lifespan of about 3 days. Neutropenia may be seen with viral infections and after radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Neutropenia lowers the immunologic barrier to bacterial and fungal infection. Granulocytopenia or, as it is also called, agranulocytosis results in a syndrome of frequent chronic bacterial infections of the skin, lungs, etc. Although agranulocytosis literally means no granulocytes, there may, in fact, be some granulocytes but too few of them, i.e. granulocytopenia. Granulocytopenia can be genetic and inherited or it can be acquired as, for example, an aspect of ...

A quantitative structure-activity relations (QSAR) approach was adopted, in which several numerical parameters describing physicochemical characteristics of the antipsychotics were estimated. Possible connections between these parameters and neutrophil maturity were explored. Influence of drug physicochemistry on the incidence of agranulocytosis and neutropenia reported in the literature was documented. Overall it was found that drugs with the greatest tendency to induce neutrophil immaturity (chlorpromazine, clozapine and olanzapine) also showed the greatest tendency to cause agranulocytosis and neutropenia. Moreover marked induction of neutrophil immaturity occurred with compounds of moderately amphipathic character, whose amphipathic indices (AI) fell in the range 3-5; higher or lower AI values correlated with less

Discussion with the patient usually reveals intake of drugs that might cause NP. Any drug can cause mild-to-severe NP but some are incriminated more than others, e.g. trimethoprim sulphametoxazole (usually mild NP), anti-thyroids (sometimes causing agranulocytosis), etc.4-6 Thus, antipsychotic drugs (such as clozapine) and an iron-chelating drug (deferiprone) are often used in young patients, whereas anti-thyroids are used in the young and middle-aged. Antibiotic-induced NPs can be found at any age. Elderly patients are often exposed to combinations of drugs, complicating identification of the drug causing the NP.. Likewise, patient history will disclose known or latent autoimmune disease. Apart from Felty syndrome, where NP can be severe and associated with infections, most autoimmune diseases display mild to moderate NP. Infection proneness is usually attributed to malfunctioning of other host defense systems (e.g. TNF inhibitors enhancing risk for tuberculosis). Findings such as the detection ...

Adverse side effects occur in up to 20% of patients receiving metoclopramide treatment (Reglan, A.H. Robbins Co., Richmond, Virginia) (1). Agranulocytosis has not been described previously. Two unpublished reports suggest metoclopramide may have caused agranulocytosis (Board A, A.H. Robbins Co., Personal communication). The first case involved the use of metoclopramide and triamterene; the second case involved the use of metoclopramide and acetaminophen. These patients were not rechallenged with metoclopramide or other agents. In several other unpublished reports, patients received multiple drug regimens and no clear causal relationship could be determined. A few patients were rechallenged with metoclopramide without adverse side ...

Agranulocytosis caused by thioamides is uncommon, with incidence considered to be around 0.2% and almost always developing in the first 90 days of commencement of therapy (1, 2). Although the mechanism is not entirely known, it is thought that a myelosuppressive effect on granulocyte production leads to suppression of neutrophil development, possibly due to anti-granulocyte auto-antibodies and/or direct toxicity at the haematopoietic stem cell level (2).. There are a number of pharmacological options used historically as monotherapy when thioamides are contraindicated in hyperthyroid patients. They each have a unique mechanism of action, which are likely to be synergistic.. Propanolol is a beta-blocker used to attenuate hyperadrenergic symptoms of palpitations, anxiety, heat intolerance, shortness of breath and tremor (1). At a starting dose of 40-160 mg daily, it has an advantage over other beta-blockers in helping decrease the peripheral conversion of T4-T3 by being more lipid soluble and ...
as cyclical neutropenia and Grey Collie Syndrome, is an inherited blood disorder that results due to an autosomal dominant cell mutating. This disorder causes extremely low neutrophil blood levels in the body. Neutrophils are better known as white blood cells and they aid the body in fighting off infections. With this recurring condition, it approximately occurs every three weeks, while lasting anywhere from three to six days. When neutrophil level are low, the pet may be prone to more frequent infections. Symptoms of cyclic neutropenia are joint pain, diarrhea, skin infections, mouth ulcers, fevers, and frequent infections. Collie dog breeds tend to be the most common breed that suffers from this condition. Unfortunately there is no current cure available for pets who suffer from cyclic neutropenia, however, there are some medications your veterinarian can prescribe that may prolong your cat or dogs life by several years..

11 patients with chronic neutropenia were evaluated. In 6 patients low numbers of CFU-DG were observed. Only 3 of these patients also had low CFU-C numbers, suggesting that these two precursors are not identical. Bone marrow samples from 2 patients were restudied a year later. The number of CFU-DG remained low while CFU-C numbers increased to control range in 1 patient. Studies for serum inhibitors were negative. No cytogenetic abnormalities were observed. This study suggests that abnormalities at different levels in the haemopoietic precursor cell hierarchy can be detected either simultaneously or independently in patients with chronic neutropenia. ...

Severe chronic neutropenia may be present at birth (congenital neutropenia) or may occur at any stage in life (acquired neutropenia). There are four main types of severe chronic neutropenia:. Congenital Neutropenia - a rare inherited form of the disease usually detected soon after birth. It affects children mainly and may result in premature loss of teeth and peremptory gum infections. The most severe form of chronic congenital neutropenia is known as Kostmanns Syndrome.. Cyclic Neutropenia - tends to occur every three weeks and lasting three to six days at a time due to changing rates of cell production by the bone marrow. It is often present among several members of the same family although improves after puberty in most cases. This is the rarest form of severe chronic neutropenia.. Idiopathic Neutropenia - a rare form of neutropenia which develops in children and adults usually in response to an illness. It is diagnosed when the disorder cannot be attributed to any other diseases and often ...

There were 13 confirmed suicides. The usual risk increase in schizophrenia seems to be around 20 times that of the national population standardised mortality rate (SMR) ie about 2000. The risk in this group was an SMR of about 500; ie 4 x less than typical figures for schizophrenia.. The inverse risk finding is counter-intuitive and one would want to be confident that this is not an artifact caused by dose lowering in those perceived (correctly) to be at risk. An intriguing possibility is that it is related to auto-inhibition of a cytochrome P450 enzyme responsible for the production of a toxic metabolite.. This is the Journal letter from me, and the reply:. Ti: Paradoxical pattern of haematological risk with clozapine. I would be intrigued to hear further comments from Munro et al (1999) concerning the apparent paradox of the inverse relationship between dose and risk, both of neutropenia and of agranulocytosis..
