ABSTRACT Therapy-related myelodysplastic syndromes (t-MDSs) and acute myeloid leukemia (t-AML) have a poor prognosis with conventional therapy. Encouraging results are reported after allogeneic transplantation. We analyzed outcomes in 868 persons with t-AML (n = 545) or t-MDS (n = 323) receiving allogeneic transplants from 1990 to 2004. A myeloablative regimen was used for conditioning in 77%. Treatment-related mortality (TRM) and relapse were 41% (95% confidence interval [CI], 38-44) and 27% (24-30) at 1 year and 48% (44-51) and 31% (28-34) at 5 years, respectively. Disease-free (DFS) and overall survival (OS) were 32% (95% CI, 29-36) and 37% (34-41) at 1 year and 21% (18-24) and 22% (19-26) at 5 years, respectively. In multivariate analysis, 4 risk factors had adverse impacts on DFS and OS: (1) age older than 35 years; (2) poor-risk cytogenetics; (3) t-AML not in remission or advanced t-MDS; and (4) donor other than an HLA-identical sibling or a partially or well-matched unrelated donor. Five-year survival for subjects with none, 1, 2, 3, or 4 of these risk factors was 50% (95% CI, 38-61), 26% (20-31), 21% (16-26), 10% (5-15), and 4% (0-16), respectively (P < .001). These data permit a more precise prediction of outcome and identify subjects most likely to benefit from allogeneic transplantation.

    ABSTRACT: A third harmonic Landau cavity with the fundamental mode of about 1.5 GHz is under development at SRRC. The cavity consists of inner copper layer and outer stainless steel layer. The vacuum-brazing process is adopted for cavity construction. The maximal power flow density on the cavity surface will be about 52.19 W/cm<sup>2</sup>, as the total thermal loading of 32 kW. To verify the cooling capacity, the finite element method is adopted to perform the thermal and stress analyses. Under 15 m<sup>3</sup>/hr water flow rate, the temperature rise on the cavity body will be less than 14°C, and the maximal equivalent stress on the copper layer of 29.75 N/mm<sup>2</sup>(MPa) is achieved, which is much less than the yielding stress of copper

    ABSTRACT: The Z machine at Sandia National Laboratories is a z-pinch facility capable of producing a 1 MJ, 200 eV radiation source. At present, this source is being investigated as a potential driver for inertial confinement fusion (ICF) experiments. For optimum ICF capsule implosions, however, it will be necessary to generate shaped radiation pulses. Specifically, it will be necessary to generate a 10-20 ns "foot" prior to the main radiation pulse, with about 1/14 the amplitude of the peak radiation. One possible method of generating an appropriately shaped radiation pulse is to use nested wire arrays. The array parameters can in principle be chosen to allow different arrival times on axis, thereby producing a shaped radiation pulse. To investigate this possibility, we utilized a simple formulation for self and mutual inductances for the nested arrays. We added to this formulation a modification of the equations of motion by introducing instantaneous momentum transfer when the position of the two arrays coincides.

    ABSTRACT: A theory of the anomalous thermomagnetic effect in GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures is created for the case of piezoelectric interaction between electrons and phonons. The theory describes the effect for sub-helium temperatures when the interaction is dominant in such heterostructures.
