BACKGROUND: Lower gastrointestinal (GI) adverse events (LGAE) are common afflictions of patients undergoing stem cell transplantation (SCT). Unfortunately, the pathophysiology remains poorly characterized. Emerging data suggest a prominent role of intestinal microbiota; however, contributions of pathogenic gut microbiota such as Clostridium difficile are not well defined. We performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) to investigate clinical and genetic factors associated with development of LGAE...

To assess the role of leukapheresis and cranial irradiation in reducing the incidence of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) and early death in patients with hyperleukocytic acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and the impact of such treatment on survival. This study retrospectively analyzed the records of 75 patients with hyperleukocytic AML who had a white cell count over 100,000/microL. All patients had de novo AML except for two with therapy-related AML. Various factors were assessed for their impact on morbidity and mortality, particularly the role of pre-induction leukapharesis and cranial irradiation...

BACKGROUND: DCs for use in immunotherapy are frequently generated from peripheral blood monocytes. However, there are different approaches to monocyte enrichment. METHOD: Plastic adherence is a widely used method for the enrichment of monocytes collected in a leukapheresis procedure. Alternatively,monocytes may be enriched by positive selection using magnetic beads coupled to CD14 Abs, or by cell depletion using beads coupled to Abs against CD2 and CD19 to remove non-monocytes...

High-dose chemotherapy with autologous peripheral blood progenitor cell (PBPC) support has become a widely used treatment strategy. In order to simplify the procedure, a single very large-volume leukapheresis programme combined with short-term refrigerated storage of the PBPC was developed. Seventy-two patients suffering from various relatively chemosensitive malignancies received high-dose chemotherapy, consisting of agents with short in vivo half-lives and 24 to 48 hours later, the refrigerated PBPC were reinfused...

The activation, aggregation and adhesion of polymorphonuclear leukocytes on the endothelial wall of the pulmonary capillaries are responsible for lesions of variable severity on the alveolar-capillary membrane. The mechanism and the contribution of this leukocyte aggregation was studied to explain the respiratory abnormalities observed during the course of haemodialysis, leukapharesis and the end of extra-corporeal circulation. The activation of complement, by the formation of C5a is probably the initiator of this phenomenon...
