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)

Objective: Recent studies suggest that restrictions on the use of clozapine should be reassessed considering the risk-benefit ratio. We analyzed all cases of clozapine-induced agranulocytosis reported to the Finnish National Agency for Medicines between 1982 and 2007.. Method: In this retrospective longitudinal study, we defined agranulocytosis as a neutrophil count below 0.5 × 109/L and, accordingly, identified a total of 163 patients with clozapine-induced agranulocytosis. We collected all available information on patient demography, as well as on daily clozapine doses, treatment duration, concomitant medication prior to the onset of agranulocytosis, and infections during the adverse event. The amount of clozapine used annually in Finland was estimated on the basis of the defined daily dose, and the frequency of agranulocytosis was calculated from the absolute number of cases in relation to the defined daily dose each year, as reported by the Finnish National Agency for Medicines.. Results: ...

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 ...

An investigation of the relationships between physicochemical features of ten antipsychotic drugs and previously reported influence of these drugs on neutrophil maturity was made. 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

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..

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 ...
Objectives: Complete resection +/- adjuvant radiotherapy is the primary treatment for chordomas. However, resection of lumbar or high sacral chordomas may require sacrifice of nerve roots and result in significant loss of neurological function, while some other patients may be medically inoperable or refuse surgery. In these cases, protons may allow conformal delivery of high doses while sparing nearby spinal cord, small bowel, rectum, and other critical organs. We report our experience with definitive proton-based radiotherapy for chordomas.. Methods: 11 patients with spinal chordomas (2 cervical, 1 lumbar, 6 involving up to S2, 2 up to S3) underwent core biopsy (10) or incisional biopsy (1) followed by definitive proton-based radiotherapy from 1997-2008. All patients had newly diagnosed disease at the time of radiotherapy. Results: Median age was 67 years (30-82). Mean total dose was 77.3 Gy RBE (76.6-77.4 Gy RBE), delivered using primarily protons (mean dose 46.8 Gy RBE ) with a component of ...

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.. A curious interaction of enzymes and metabolites, as briefly alluded too, is a ...

Occasionally, rashes may be a side effect. Some side effects that have only been seen very rarely are confusion, hallucinations, headaches, sedation, vertigo and liver enlargement.There has also been a case of severe allergic-type reaction to the drug in at least one person with AIDS. This type of reaction is called anaphylaxis ...
Consider a Maryland finding: of the 2046 clozaril patients from 1990-2000, three died of new onset diabetic ketpacidosis. (0.15%) None had had diabetes. (3) Or the Israeli study (4) that found that 4/561 clozaril patients had sudden death-- 10 years younger, healthier, and 4 times the rate of non-clozaril treated sudden deaths. NB: no one died from agranulocytosis.. How about myocarditis: 8000 patients over 6 years: 15 myocarditis, 8 cardiomyopathy; 6 died. Thats 0.3% 5 of the 6 deaths occurred in first month (thats right: month). (2) Given the rapidity of death, the authors speculate its an acute hypersensitivity reaction (i.e. IgE/Type I).. A review of Pubmed/MEDLINE from 1970-2004 found rates of fatal myocarditis/cardiomyopathy to be between 0.015% and 0.188%.. An oft cited article by Walker examined 67072 clozapine patiens from 1991-1993, and found that of the 396 deaths, the most common cause was pulmonary embolism. (FYI: Zornberg found that exposure to low potency antipsychotics ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Treating chemotherapy induced agranulocytosis with granulocyte colony-stimulating factors in a patient on clozapine. AU - Kolli, Venkata. AU - Denton, Kevin. AU - Borra, Dileep. AU - Pulluri, Madhuri. AU - Sharma, Ashish. PY - 2013/7/1. Y1 - 2013/7/1. N2 - Background Clozapine is reserved for overcoming treatment resistance in schizophrenia. Malignancy is common in schizophrenia; however, there is limited evidence available on continuing clozapine with chemotherapy, with both having hematological adverse effects. Objective To report a case on the use of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) in conjunction with clozapine and chemotherapy. Methods We searched PubMed for any available information on the use of granulocyte G-CSF with clozapine and chemotherapy. We report the case of a patient with schizophrenia who developed B-cell lymphoma and was treated with chemotherapy consisting of CHOP regimen, rituximab, and methotrexate. He was continued on clozapine and G-CSF. ...
to the editor: We would like to respond to the recent article by Dr. Hartmann titled, "Mirtazapine: A Newer Antidepressant."1 We have conducted independent meta-analyses with mirtazapine that have established its efficacy in the treatment of depression.2,3 In addition, Fawcett and colleagues2 reported significant improvement in symptoms of anxiet/gitation or anxiet/omatization beginning with week 1, which was comparable to improvement with the use of amitriptyline during the treatment period. Moreover, clinical experience with mirtazapine continues to demonstrate lack of sexual dysfunction as a side effect.4. Dr. Hartmann also indicated that agranulocytosis occurs in approximately one in 1,000 patients who are treated with mirtazapine,1 which is no higher than the incidence of agranulocytosis with the use of other antidepressant agents. To be more precise, postmarketing surveillance reports have demonstrated that agranulocytosis is rarely associated with use of mirtazapine. Only six cases of ...
Autoimmune neutropenia is a form of neutropenia which is most common in infants and young children where the body identifies the neutrophils as enemies and makes antibody to destroy them. Primary autoimmune neutropenia (AIN) is an autoimmune disease first reported in 1975 that primarily occurs in infancy. In autoimmune neutropenia, the immune system produces autoantibodies directed against the neutrophilic protein antigens in white blood cells known as granulocytic neutrophils (granulocytes, segmented neutrophils, segs, polysegmented neutrophils, polys). These antibodies destroy granulocytic neutrophils. Consequently, patients with autoimmune neutropenia have low levels of granulocytic neutrophilic white blood cells causing a condition of neutropenia. Neutropenia causes an increased risk of infection from organisms that the body could normally fight easily. Who is Affected? Primary autoimmune neutropenia has been reported as early as the second month of life although most cases are diagnosed in ...
Backgrounds: Low-Z inhomogeneities such as lung and air column create dose perturbation in proton beam therapy (PBT) for lung and liver treatments. Without proper inhomogeneity correction, dose perturbation causes inaccurate patient treatment. The impact of low-Z material on proton dose distributions is studied and compared with those obtained from the treatment planning system.. Material and methods: Urie et al [1] in 1984 showed that low-Z bulk inhomogeneity can be corrected by scaling the range shift, DR, by equivalent density, Ρeq for a thickness, t, as:. ΔR = (1-t Ρeq/Ρw). This concept is revisited by measurement at our center for 208 MeV beam with a maximum range of 28 cm. Measurements were made in a solid water-cork (Ρ=0.25g/cm3) slab phantom mimicking tissue-lung with parallel plate ion chamber embedded in the phantom. Measurements were made in reference condition (10 cm aperture, 16 cm range, 10 cm SOBP). The slab phantom was scanned and data transferred to the CMS treatment ...
Feltys syndrome is a rare, potentially serious disorder that is defined by the presence of three conditions: rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an enlarged spleen (splenomegaly) and a decreased white blood cell count (neutropenia), which causes repeated infections. Although some individuals with Feltys syndrome are asymptomatic, others can develop serious and life-threatening infections. Symptoms of Feltys syndrome, in addition to those associated with the three conditions stated above, may include fatigue, fever, weight loss, discoloration of patches of skin, mild hepatomegaly (enlarged liver), lymphadenopathy (swelling of lymph nodes), Sjšgren syndrome, vasculitis, lower-extremity ulcers, and other findings. The exact cause is unknown, but several risk factors have been proposed, including autoimmunity. A few familial cases of the condition have been reported. Treatment typically focuses on controlling the underlying RA; immunosuppressive therapy for RA may improve neutropenia and splenomegaly ...
AZT therapy is probably the most common cause of low granulocyte counts in patients with HIV infection. Severe granulocytopenia (, 500 cells/mm3) developed in 16% of AZT-treated patients in the original placebo-controlled study of AZT therapy for advanced HIV disease and symptomatic middle-stage HIV disease; only 2% of placebo-treated patients became granulocytopenic to this degree.(6) Despite the relatively high frequency of AZT-induced granulocytopenia, there were no reported episodes of bacterial infection or sepsis in the study group. In subsequent studies of AZT therapy,(8,9,50) the observed risk of bacterial infection was low, reflecting the brief duration of AZT-induced granulocytopenia; the dosage of AZT was reduced or discontinued when the granulocyte count fell below the range of 500 to 1,000 cells/mm3. As stated previously, low ANC is associated with increased risk of hospitalization for significant bacterial infection in weeks following the ANC. Granulocyte recovery is generally ...

Clozapine remain the drug of choice for treatment resistant schizophrenia and up to 60% of patients not responding to other antipsychotics will respond to clozapine. However, the use of clozapine is restricted due to the risk of agranulocytosis and consequently the need for mandatory hematological monitoring. CHEMPAQ XBC is a point-of-care device that can be used in patients home and analyze WBC and granulocytes by a single capillary blood drop. This study aims to investigate whether this new procedure increases the acceptability of ...

One of the important problems of modern transplantology is the creation of combination of immunosuppressants having the lowest possible toxic effects on the body of the recipient. The most frequent variety of infectious complications, sometimes reaching to sepsis and lethal outcome in patients receiving immunosuppressants (1-10).. Many modern immunosuppressants effectively suppress the immune system of recipients after transplantation of vital organs, but also affect other organs, causing hypo-and aplasia of the bone marrow with the progress of agranulocytosis (7-10).. In remote period in patients receiving immunosuppressants, carcinogenic and teratogenic side effects may develop (7-11).. All these factors force to seek new combinations of immunosuppressants in dosages that provide sufficient suppressive effect, avoiding toxic effects. The most common cause of reduced graft function and occasionally recipients mortality during the first year after transplantation is infection, especially ...

Psychiatric illness stands out as having a rich multifactorial aetiology. This makes it unreasonable to expect massive advances because of the complexity of studies needed to understand it. Acknowledging the multifactorial nature of psychiatric illness, over the past year researchers have tried to consolidate information about different disorders-for example, by studying environmental aspects of the more biological conditions and biological aspects of the traditionally more environmental disorders-and in drawing up treatment protocols. Schizophrenia There have been some promising developments in the treatment of schizophrenia, with both pharmacological and psychological interventions. It is now recognised that the atypical neuroleptic drug clozapine is effective in 30-60% of patients with schizophrenia who do not respond to conventional neuroleptics.1 2 As up to 2% of patients treated with clozapine develop agranulocytosis, obligatory blood monitoring has been introduced, which can be a ...

The metabolism of 9-butyl thioguanine (9-BTG)1 was studied in normal tissues and the Ehrlich ascites tumor with and without pretreatment with azaserine. The study of the distribution and metabolism of the drug was facilitated by the synthesis of 9-butyl-6-thioguanine-8-C14.. The results showed that 9-BTG was rapidly cleared from the blood, rapidly catabolized, and that the metabolites were rapidly excreted in the urine. Pretreatment with azaserine resulted in a longer retention of radioactivity in the acid-soluble fraction of the tissues.. Radioactivity was also found in the lipide fraction of the tissues. It was confirmed that 9-BTG was neither dealkylated nor incorporated into nucleic acids.. Treatment with toxic doses produced bone marrow depression with a terminal agranulocytosis.. ...
Among the 15 groups of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) there are sure to be those that will help to knock down even the highest temperature in an adult.. First of all, these drugs are the first generation - acetylsalicylic acid (Analgin, Citramon), paracetamol and ibuprofen (Nurofen, Ibuprofen, Voltaren).. These drugs are known for their analgesic and antipyretic effect, and with the correct dosage and symptomatic application do not cause side effects. In addition to Analgin, he was more than dangerous.. Analgin is one of the most allergenic drugs, which in one of the 50,000 causes an anaphylactic shock. Also, this drug is able to cause agranulocytosis - a decrease in the number of white blood cells in the blood, which leads to the bodys vulnerability to fungi and bacteria. After two applications in a row, analgin can lead to electrolyte disorders and provoke oliguria. Therefore, the use of analgin, especially at high temperatures, is not recommended even for adults.. Due to the ...

Animals compromised by irradiation or graft versus host disease (GVHD) are highly sensitive to endotoxin (ET). In order to determine the causes of the increase in sensitivity in compromised mice, we studied alterations of hepatic (central) and blood-borne (peripheral) ET clearance processes. Male B6CBF1 mice were irradiated bilaterally with 1000 rads Co60 at 45 rads per minute. Mice destined to undergo GVHD received 5,000,000 CBA spleen cells i.v. within 4 hours after irradiation. Increased sensitivity to ET, as determined by mortality, occurs shortly after irradiation and correlates with granulocytopenia and thrombocytopenia rather than with impairmant of liver function. It was also found that intestinal ET contributes to mortality of granulocytopenic-thrombocytopenic mice. This was supported by the observation that bacteriologically decontaminated, irradiated animals were 10 times more resistant to challenge with ET than were conventional animals. Thus, an important aspect of increased sensitivity to

Before I treated this woman who I assumed was under good control by her dentist and his dental hygienists, I sent her out for a series of blood tests to just make sure that I wasnt looking at a type of blood dyscrasia; even something as serious as leukemia that might be causing this severe inflammatory hyperplasia. I wanted to rule that out before I just assumed it was only a periodontal presentation. Because she came from an excellent practice, I elected to do a medical evaluation first ...
A 51 year old man presented with sepsis in the setting of thioamide-induced agranulocytosis. Empiric broad-spectrum antibiotics was followed by directed narrow-spectrum antibiotics, and his neutrophil count recovered with support from granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) analogue transfusions. After a brief period of multi-modal therapy for nine days including potassium iodide (Lugols iodine), cholestyramine, propanolol and lithium to temper his persisting hyperthyroidism, a total thyroidectomy was performed while thyroid hormone levels remained at thyrotoxic levels. Postoperative recovery was uncomplicated and he was discharged home on thyroxine. There is limited available evidence to guide treatment in this unique cohort of patients who require prompt management to avert impending clinical deterioration. This case report summarises the successful emergent control of thyrotoxicosis in the setting of thioamide-induced agranulocytosis complicated by sepsis, and demonstrates the safe use ...
Letter to the Editor. Sir: Severe neutropenia, defined as less than 0.5 × 109/L mature neutrophil cells, is a potentially life-threatening side effect with tricyclic antidepressants,1 but it also occurs with mirtazapine with an approximate risk of up to 1 in 1000. Here, we present a patient with a known idiopathic leukopenia and cross-intolerance between tricyclic antidepressants and mirtazapine who developed agranulocytosis with mirtazapine. After discontinuation of mirtazapine, she was safely treated with venlafaxine. ...
ADVERSE EFFECTS: Chronic therapeutic ingestion can result in a variety of immunologic-mediated adverse effects which are not expected to occur in overdose, including leukopenia, agranulocytosis, aplastic anemia, eosinophilia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, vasculitis and hypoprothrombinemia. In addition, chronic ingestion of propylthiouracil have produced a characteristic hepatocellular or mixed cytotoxic-cholestatic hepatitis, believed to be a hypersensitivity reaction. Transaminase levels are typically elevated, with or without elevated bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase. The onset of symptoms is 2 weeks to 5 months after initiation of therapy. Rare reports of hepatitis, hepatic necrosis, encephalopathy have occurred; some cases have been fatal. Skin rashes may occur secondary to hematologic toxicity during chronic therapy. Cutaneous hypersensitivity vasculitis is an immune-mediated adverse reaction to propylthiouracil. Arthritis as well as polymyositis, synovitis, arthralgias, and an SLE-like ...
Feltys syndrome (FS) is an uncommon but severe subset of seropositive rheumatoid arthritis (RA) that is complicated by granulocytopenia and splenomegaly. Patients with FS are at substantially increased risk for recurrent and severe bacterial infecti
Although antipsychotics currently used in the clinic are generally effective against the positive symptoms of schizophrenia there is still a need to design novel antipsychotics that would be efficacious against the positive and negative symptoms, lack the adverse side effects of current therapy (extrapyramidal motor symptoms, hyperprolactinaemia, agranulocytosis, seizures) and be effective in treatment-resistant patients. Approaches so far in this area have been primarily directed at mimicking the atypical antipsychotic clozapine. The superior clinical profile of clozapine (greater efficacy than typical antipsychotics against positive and possibly negative symptoms of schizophrenia, effective in some refractory patients and causing fewer EPS) has been difficult to pinpoint to a single pharmacological action because clozapine binds with high affinity to many neurotransmitter receptors (Fitton and Heel, 1990; Baldessarini and Frankenburg, 1991). The identification of the dopamine D4 receptor ...

This study assessed the pharmacokinetics and dosing adequacy of piperacillin in febrile neutropenic patients after the first dose. Pharmacokinetic analysis was performed using noncompartmental methods. We observed an elevated volume of distribution (29.7±8.0 liters [mean±standard deviation]) and clearance (20.2±7.5 liters/h) compared to data from other patient populations. Antibiotic exposure did not consistently result in therapeutic targets. We conclude that alternative dosing strategies guided by therapeutic drug monitoring may be required to optimize exposure ...
This cohort offers new information about the hematological and infectious profiles of WS. Interestingly, besides the constant neutropenia and lymphopenia, all 8 patients present monocytopenia and half of the patients present profound monocytopenia below 0.1 G/L, contrasting with the monocytosis commonly observed in other congenital neutropenias, such as the elastase neutrophil expressed (ELANE) syndrome. Of particular note, susceptibility to mycobacterial infections may be added to the infection spectrum of WS. Considering the monocytopenia and the infectious profile, composed by pyogenic infections, warts and mycobacteria, WS presents certain similarities with the Mono-MAC syndrome, now identified as the consequence of GATA2 mutations[53, 54]. The major phenotypic difference between the two syndromes is the BM myelokathexis feature the WS.. We previously reported, in leukocytes derived from two patients (UPN 5231 and 5446) from pedigree 4 carrying a mutated CXCR4 receptor, that the increased ...
Although the electricity itself remains confined within the wire, the magnetic field induced moves outside. What makes this treatment so remarkable is that living tissue is essentially transparent to magnetic fields. When a varying electromagnetic field is placed close to a conductive medium such as the human body, it will induce electrical currents.. BT may be new to the reader, but it has been applied clinically almost from the moment we learned to send electricity over wire. It is standard practice in eastern Europe where it has been studied systematically for many years. Positive results are documented in a lengthy list of conditions, and thousands of studies have been performed.. How significant is BT? In 1992 Dr. Andrew Bassett, who helped pioneer the first FDA approved bioelectromagnetic device, wrote:. "In the decade to come bioelectromagnetics will assume a therapeutic importance equal to, or greater than, that of pharmacology and surgery today. With proper interdisciplinary effort, ...

Metabolic profiling of urine and fecal extracts, histological investigation of intestinal ilea, and fecal metagenomics analyses were utilized to investigate ramifications of extended antibiotic use in mice. al. 2009) despite the fact that many are not really actually contaminated (Clark et al. 2006; Stoll et al. 2005). Empiric antibiotic therapy is still regular in neonatal intense care systems for preterm newborns considered vulnerable to sepsis as the huge benefits are widely recognized to outweigh the potential risks (McGuire et al. 2004) although there keeps growing concern concerning this practice (Tripathi et al. 2012; Tzialla et al. 2012). The gastrointestinal system of preterm newborns is frequently colonized originally with fairly few beneficial bacterias in comparison to full-term newborn newborns because of empiric antibiotic therapy. Preterm newborns knowledge postponed gut colonization with defensive bacterial types also, such as and so are commonly within these same newborns with & ...

It should be noted that efficacy, indications, and untoward effects have varied with the different phenothiazines. It has been reported that old age lowers the tolerance for pheno-thiazines. The most common neurological side effects in these patients are parkinsonism and akathisia. There appears to be an increased risk of agranulocytosis and leukopenia in the geriatric population. The physician should be aware that the following have occurred with one or more phenothiazines and should be considered whenever one of these drugs is used:. Autonomic Reactions: Miosis, obstipation, anorexia, paralytic ileus.. Cutaneous Reactions: Erythema, exfoliative dermatitis, contact dermatitis.. Blood Dyscrasias: Agranulocytosis, leukopenia, eosinophilia,thrombocytopenia, anemia, aplastic anemia, pancytopenia.. Allergic Reactions: Fever, laryngeal edema, angioneurotic edema, asthma..

Feltys syndrome has again been shown to be a severe form of systemic rheumatoid disease characterised by severe joint involvement, many extra-articular features, and a high incidence of infection. In addition we have shown that splenectomy was not protective for infections and in fact may on occasion contributed to infection. Furthermore, although most patients had an increase in white blood cell count after splenectomy, 50% of patients without splenectomy showed a similar increase in white blood cell counts at follow-up. Mortality in Feltys syndrome was high, with infection being the main cause of death. ...
Schizophrenia is a mental disorder affecting approximately one percent of the population worldwide. The introduction of the second generation antipsychotic drug, atypical antipsychotic, clozapine, has demonstrated 80% reduction in suicide incident. This drug showed effectiveness in the treatment of resistant schizophrenia, however, high concentrations of clozapine and N-desmethylclozapine in plasma exhibit the development of agranulocytosis, a possible lethal blood disorder. Therefore, constant therapeutic drug monitoring is important for patients who receive clozapine. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is the current assay for clinical clozapine measurement. A different assay, the capillary electrophoresis (CE) was explored in this study. It was found the use of a background electrolyte (BGE) concentration of 60 mM, pH at 2.5, temperature at 22 ℃, voltage applied at 10 kV and sample injection at 23 kV for 1.5 seconds is the optimal condition for clozapine separation using a ...

We describe the first case of chronic neutropenia of 17 years duration following gold therapy in a 53-year-old woman given a 1-g course of gold therapy in 1965 for treatment of seropositive rheumatoid arthritis. Although she had a good response to the gold therapy, her originally normal leukocyte count fell to 1.2 x 10(9)/L. Over the subsequent 17 years, she required multiple hospitalizations for recurrent skin, mouth, and respiratory tract infections. Serial leukocyte counts failed to show a cyclical nature to the chronic neutropenia. Normal results of a technetium Tc 99m spleen scan and lack of increased bone marrow leukocyte precursors rendered a diagnosis of Feltys syndrome unlikely. A bone marrow biopsy specimen revealed an isolated reduction in the number of myeloid precursors, which is consistent with gold-induced bone marrow toxicity. This patients relative freedom from serious life-threatening infections remains enigmatic, but is undoubtedly related to her ability to augment another ...
If adverse reactions are of such severity that the drug must be discontinued, the physician must be aware that abrupt discontinuation of any anticonvulsant drug in a responsive epileptic patient may lead to seizures or even status epilepticus with its life-threatening hazards.. The most severe adverse reactions have been observed in the hemopoietic system (see boxed WARNING), the skin, liver, and the cardiovascular system.. The most frequently observed adverse reactions, particularly during the initial phases of therapy, are dizziness, drowsiness, unsteadiness, nausea, and vomiting. To minimize the possibility of such reactions, therapy should be initiated at the low dosage recommended.. The following additional adverse reactions have been reported:. Hemopoietic System: Aplastic anemia, agranulocytosis, pancytopenia, bone marrow depression, thrombocytopenia, leukopenia, leukocytosis, eosinophilia, acute intermittent porphyria.. Skin: Pruritic and erythematous rashes, urticaria, toxic epidermal ...
