A zoonotic, opportunistic out-break of tropical rat mite Ornithonyssus bacoti [Acari: Macronyssidae; Ornithonyssus bacoti (Hirst)] in an animal facility, is described. Immunocompetent mice [Mus musculus (Linnaeus)] and rat [Rattus norvegicus (Berkenhout)] strains in a conventional health status facility suffered from scratching and allopecia and staff members suffered from pruritic, erythemato-papular lesions, presumed to be allergic in origin. O. bacoti was identified and treatment with a 0.1% ivermectin solution led to its complete erradication...

A phase II trial has demonstrated that paclitaxel (210 mg/m2/3 hr) showed a 33.3% response rate among anthracycline-resistant breast cancer patients in Japan. Recently, weekly dosing of paclitaxel has been demonstrated to be a well-tolerated, feasible and effective administration schedule. Standard premedication is commonly administered prior to treatment with paclitaxel. However, this regimen requires dexamethasone administration beginning at 12 to 14 hours prior to paclitaxel, which would not be convenient for outpatients...

In todays medicine, anticoagulant drugs like heparin and coumadin derivatives have become indispensable for the treatment of thrombo-embolic diseases. Heparin, consisting of long poly-sulfated polysaccharide chains of variable length and sequences is mostly derived from porcine mucosa. Its bioavailability by other than the parenteral way of administration is almost negligible. Therefore, with only few exceptions, it is almost exclusively applied in hospitalized patients (short-term therapy) or to bridge 2 phases of treatment with oral anticoagulant drugs...

We reported 2 cases of breast cancer with lymph node metastasis treated with CAF (cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, 5-fluorouracil) and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA). Case 1 was stage IV [T4b, N3 M1 (lung)] and case 2 was stage IIIa (T1, N2, M0). The two cases responded well to CAF and MPA therapy in local and systemic lesions, and then underwent radiotherapy and lymph node resection without mastectomy. After these treatments, both cases were thought to be disease-free. Major side effects were allopecia, obesity, and leukopenia...

High dose Cytarabin in relapsed and refractory acute leukaemia. High dose cytarabin can be very effective for the treatment of acute leukaemia resistent to conventional cytarabin doses. Therefore 10 patients (6 males, 4 females) with ages ranging from 18 to 58 years (median: 34 years) refractory to conventional induction therapy were treated with 1 hour infusions of high dose cytarabin (3 g/m2 q 12 h for 6 days) 2 patients got additional 20 mg/m2 doxorubicin on days 7 to 9. According to this treatment, in 5 of the 10 patients complete remissions could be achieved...
