Malawi pilot study of Burkitt lymphoma treatment.

Med Pediatr Oncol 2003 Dec;41(6):532-40

Department of Paediatrics at the Health Sciences Faculty, University of Stellenbosch, Tygerberg, South Africa.

Background: Burkitt lymphoma (BL) accounts for 50% of childhood cancer in Malawi. Lack of resources precludes the use of new successful treatment approaches such as the LMB 89 group B protocol, which cures >80% of children with stage III BL with high dose chemotherapy and matching supportive care. Our objective was to achieve a good cure rate in Murphy stage I-III BL with manageable toxicity in Malawi at a drug cost of <1000 US dollars per patient. Read More

Epigenetic changes in the DAP-kinase CpG island in pediatric lymphoma.

Med Pediatr Oncol 2003 Dec;41(6):527-31

Departments of Pediatrics & Medicine, John A Burns School of Medicine, Pacific Biomedical Research Center, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, USA.

Background: Hypermethylation of CpG islands in the promoter region of death-associated protein kinase (DAP-kinase) coupled with the loss of gamma-interferon-induced apoptosis have been reported in B-cell malignancies suggesting a role in pathogenesis or prognosis. Along with B-cell malignancies, pediatric lymphomas also include T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), anaplastic large cell lymphoma, and Hodgkin disease, each with unique prognoses. The purpose of this study was to elucidate epigenetic changes in the DAP-kinase promoter region of pediatric cases to determine associations with aberrant hypermethylation. Read More

Differences in vasculature between pilocytic and anaplastic astrocytomas of childhood.

Med Pediatr Oncol 2003 Dec;41(6):516-26

Department of Paediatrics, New Agent and Innovative Therapy Program, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Background: The clinical manifestations of childhood pilocytic astrocytoma (PA) and anaplastic astrocytoma (AA) markedly differ, especially in the time to progression and prognosis. Because of the aggressive course and poor survival rate of AA, one would expect it to be associated with a high angiogenic index. Counterintuitively, we often find higher microvessel density counts in PA than in AA. Read More

Neuroblastoma in adolescents and adults: the Memorial Sloan-Kettering experience.

Med Pediatr Oncol 2003 Dec;41(6):508-15

Department of Pediatrics, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York 10021, USA.

Background: We reviewed the utility of different treatment modalities in a large series of adolescents/adults with neuroblastoma (NB).

Procedure: The 30 adolescents/adults (median age, 19 years) had stage 2B (n = 1), 3 (n = 2), or 4 (n = 27) NB. Treatments included conventional and myeloablative therapy; local radiotherapy (RT); immunotherapy with anti-G(D2) 3F8 monoclonal antibody +/- granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF); and 3F8 alternating with low-dose oral etoposide.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis patients have HLA Cw7 and DR4 types associated with specific clinical presentations and no increased frequency in polymorphisms of the tumor necrosis factor alpha promoter.

Med Pediatr Oncol 2003 Dec;41(6):502-7

Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Cancer Center/Hematology Service, Houston, Texas 77030, USA.

Background: Current theory on the etiology of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), formerly Histiocytosis-X, is that abnormality(ies) of the immune system are responsible for dysregulation of Langerhans cells (LC) in patients' lesions. Among the known abnormalities in LCH patients are increased amounts of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and other cytokines in the lesions.

Procedure: We investigated the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) phenotypes of 29 patients and 37 healthy family members to determine if any haplotypes segregate with the presence or locations of the disease. Read More

Identification of children presenting with fever in chemotherapy-induced neutropenia at low risk for severe bacterial infection.

Med Pediatr Oncol 2003 Nov;41(5):436-43

Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, Department of Pediatrics, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Background: Febrile neutropenia (FN) remains a frequent complication in pediatric oncology, requiring emergency hospitalization and empirical broad spectrum antibiotics. The distinction of patients at high versus low risk for severe bacterial infection (SBI) is not fully established. The purpose of this study was to define a rule predicting the risk to develop SBI in children and adolescents with FN, based on information accessible at presentation. Read More
