Intravenous (IV) iron therapy is widely used in iron deficiency anaemias when oral iron is not tolerated or ineffective. Administration of IV-iron is considered a safe procedure, but severe hypersensitivity reactions (HSRs) can occur at a very low frequency. Recently, new guidelines have been published by the European Medicines Agency with the intention of making IV-iron therapy safer; however, the current protocols are still non-specific, non-evidence-based empirical measures which neglect the fact that the majority of IV-iron reactions are not IgE-mediated anaphylactic reactions...

PURPOSE: Patients with cancer frequently experience chemotherapy-induced anaemia (CIA) and iron deficiency. Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs), iron supplementation and blood transfusions are available therapies. This study evaluated routine practice in CIA management. METHODS: Medical oncologists and/or haematologists from nine European countries (n=375) were surveyed on their last five cancer patients treated for CIA (n=1,730). Information was collected on tests performed at diagnosis of anaemia, levels of haemoglobin (Hb), serum ferritin and transferrin saturation (TSAT), as well as applied anaemia therapies...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Functional iron deficiency is one reason for lack of response to erythropoietin treatment. Concomitant intravenous (IV) iron supplementation has the potential to improve response to erythropoietin, allowing a decrease in erythropoietin dose requirements. In a recent study of anaemic, iron-replete patients with lymphoproliferative malignancies (Leukemia, 21, 2007, 627), the haemoglobin (Hb) increase and response rate were significantly greater in patients receiving epoetin beta with concomitant IV iron compared with patients receiving epoetin beta without IV iron (P < 0...

UNLABELLED: Cancer-related anemia is common and multifactorial in origin. Functional iron deficiency (FID) is now recognized as a cause of iron-restricted erythropoiesis and may be one of the major reasons for lack of response to treatment with Erythropoietic Stimulating Agents (ESAs). Numerous studies have shown that intravenous (IV), but not oral, iron therapy effectively provides sufficient iron for optimal erythropoiesis in anemic patients with chronic renal disease receiving ESA therapy...

This randomized study assessed if intravenous iron improves hemoglobin (Hb) response and permits decreased epoetin dose in anemic (Hb 9-11 g/dl), transfusion-independent patients with stainable iron in the bone marrow and lymphoproliferative malignancies not receiving chemotherapy. Patients (n=67) were randomized to subcutaneous epoetin beta 30 000 IU once weekly for 16 weeks with or without concomitant intravenous iron supplementation. There was a significantly (P<0.05) greater increase in mean Hb from week 8 onwards in the iron group and the percentage of patients with Hb increase >or=2 g/dl was significantly higher in the iron group (93%) than in the no-iron group (53%) (per-protocol population; P=0...

The cyclosporine analog Valspodar (PSC 833, Novartis Pharma) is a strong inhibitor of the mdr1 gene product p-glycoprotein (pgp). A phase I/II study was conducted in order to evaluate if addition of Valspodar to treatment with daunorubicin and cytarabine, given to patients with primary refractory or relapsed acute myeloid leukemia, could increase the complete remission rate.Fifty-three patients were treated in cohorts of three to six patients. Twelve patients reached a complete remission in bone marrow, five of whom also normalized their peripheral blood values...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of recombinant human erythropoietin (epoetin beta) on anemia, transfusion need, and quality of life (QOL) in severely anemic patients with low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), or multiple myeloma (MM). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Transfusion-dependent patients with NHL (n = 106), CLL (n = 126), or MM (n = 117) and a low serum erythropoietin concentration were randomized to receive epoetin beta 150 IU/kg or placebo subcutaneously three times a week for 16 weeks...

Powders absorb water by both capillary imbibition and swelling. The capillary process is almost instantaneous but swelling occurs over a period of time. An isothermal transient ionic current technique was used in this study to characterise the instantaneous absorption properties (rate and capacity) of a few selected pharmaceutical excipients. The results indicate that the instantaneous and long term water absorption properties of pharmaceutical powders can differ considerably. The rate of instantaneous water absorption appears to correlate with the total surface area while the absorption capacity correlates more with the porosity of the powder...

A method of measuring both the capacity and rate of absorption of liquid by powders of small particles over short time periods (of the order of a few seconds or less) is presented. The method is based on the measurement of the isothermal transient ionic current in a sample cell containing the absorbant material and the liquid. The method has been tested on solid glass beads, porous glass beads and cellulose agglomerates. Properties such as the instantaneous absorption capacity and rate can be characterised within a few seconds...

In order to study whether oral bisphosphonate therapy might prevent or reduce skeletal-related morbidity in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who required chemotherapy, 300 patients were included in a randomized multi-centre trial. Patients were given oral pamidronate at a dose of 300 mg daily, or placebo, in addition to conventional intermittent melphalan/prednisolone (and in some cases alpha-interferon) treatment. With a median treatment duration of about 550d, no statistically significant reduction in skeletal-related morbidity (defined as bone fracture, related surgery, vertebral collapse, or increase in number and/or size of bone lesions) could be demonstrated...

In a phase II study, patients with refractory myelomatosis were treated with a combination chemotherapy (NOP regimen): mitoxantrone (bolus injection of 4 mg/m2 on days 1-4), vincristine (continuous infusion of 0.4 mg/24 h on days 1-4) and prednisone (250 mg/d on days 1-4 and 17-20). The treatment was repeated every 4 weeks. Ninety-two patients were treated after they were found refractory to treatment with melphalan and prednisone (and occasionally vincristine) (n = 50) or more intensive treatment regimens (n = 42) including anthracyclines (n = 18)...

A total of 44 adults aged 18-78 years were allocated to an open randomized study whose aim was to compare the efficacy and toxicity of mitoxantrone with those of daunorubicin in previously untreated patients presenting with acute myeloid leukemia. In one arm, induction treatment consisted of mitoxantrone plus cytarabine given on a 3- plus 7-day schedule. Post-induction treatment consisted of two courses of mitoxantrone plus cytarabine given on a 2- plus 5-day schedule. In the control arm, mitoxantrone was replaced by daunorubicin...

In a phase II study, 58 patients with resistant multiple myeloma (MM) were treated with a combination chemotherapy (NOP-bolus regimen) consisting of mitoxantrone (16 mg/m2 for the first 25 patients and 12 mg/m2 for the subsequent 33), vincristine (2 mg), both as bolus injections on day 1 and prednisone (250 mg/d on d 1-4 and 17-20). In patients greater than 70 years of age, the mitoxantrone dose was reduced to 12 mg/m2 or 8 mg/m2, respectively. The treatment was repeated every 4 weeks. A response (greater than 50% reduction in M component) was obtained in 26% of the patients and a minor response (clinical improvement but less than 50% reduction in M component) in another 21%...
