Aluminum is ingested through foods, water, air, and even drugs. Its intake is potentiated further through foods and tea prepared in aluminum utensils and Al salt added in the drinking water for removal of suspended impurities and also fluoride in the affected areas. The ameliorating role of a blue green alga Spirulina is well documented to various pollutants in the animal models. We, therefore, examined its protective role (230 mg/kg body weight) on the hematology of male Swiss albino mice treated with aluminum (sub-acute = 78...

An 11-year-old boy presented with progressive leg hypesthesia but no history of trauma. Dysuria and constipation appeared subsequent to gait difficulty. He was admitted 8days after onset. Spinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed longitudinal hyperintensity with cord swelling and hypointensity on T2-weighted images, suggesting severe inflammation and microbleeding change, respectively. Gadolinium contrast-enhanced MRI demonstrated mild enhancement in the lesions. Platelet count and coagulation findings were normal, and cerebrospinal fluid analysis showed no pleocytosis...

BACKGROUND: Initial clinical factors that can reliably predict a successful within-1-year resolution of childhood immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) are still unclear. This study aimed to determine factors associated with within-12-month resolution of newly diagnosed childhood ITP. METHODS: The hospital records of 417 consecutive children aged less than 15 years with ITP were reviewed retrospectively and data related to the initial presentation were noted. Logistic regression analysis was used to determine which presenting features were associated with a favorable outcome within 12 months...

Haematological engraftment was assessed in 804 autologous transplants. Neutrophil recovery occurred in over 99% within 14 d but platelet recovery was delayed beyond this time in 14·8%. Time to recovery was dependent on the progenitor cell dose infused. The minimum CD34(+) cell threshold adopted in this study (2 × 10(6) /kg) was safe although recovery was faster with a dose >5 × 10(6) /kg. CD34(+) cell doses of between 1 and 2 × 10(6) /kg were also acceptable if either the granulocyte-macrophage colony-forming cell dose exceeded 2 × 10(5) /kg or this dose was due to splitting a higher yield harvest...

BACKGROUND: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) remains the most efficacious therapy in patients with acute leukemia. For older patients and those lacking a related HLA-compatible donor, autologous transplantation (auto-HSCT) is a valid alternative therapeutic option. METHODS: From 1997 until 2014 in the Department of Hematooncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation, Medical University of Lublin, Poland, 29 auto-HSCT were performed in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML; 15 men and 14 women; median age, 52...

Invasive aspergillosis infection (IF) in patients with hematologic malignancies is common. Prognosis of IF in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) not responsive to chemotherapy is very poor, especially when neutropenia is duration. Fractional HLA haplo-identical mobilized neutropenia peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transfusion, which was defined as micro-transplantation, was recently adopted in treatment of elder patients with AML and shown to be effective in fasting hemopoiesis recovery. Here we report the outcome of an elderly patient with AML accompanying IF treated with microtransplantation and voriconazole...

BACKGROUND: Childhood immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a common acquired bleeding disorder. Even though most children recover, either spontaneously or with therapy, 10-20% of newly diagnosed ITP cases have a chronic course beyond 12 months. This study evaluated whether clinical and laboratory findings can predict the response to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and progression to persistent or chronic ITP in children. METHODS: During the period between March 2003 and June 2015, we retrospectively analyzed 72 children, newly diagnosed with ITP, who received IVIG treatment...

BACKGROUND: >50% of stroke patients rely on analgesic medication to control pain. Aspirin is the mainstay of medical treatment of stroke patients; however analgesic medication with dipyrone impairs aspirin antiplatelet effects ex-vivo. The clinical impact of this impairment is unknown. Therefore, we aimed to determine aspirin antiplatelet effects and neurological outcome in stroke patients with aspirin and dipyrone comedication. METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study in 41 patients with stroke...

OBJECTIVES: In chronic kidney disease, both bleeding and thrombotic complications are observed, although with expected recovery after a successful transplant. Adiponectin has protective properties with respect to atherogenesis and inflammation. Plasma adiponectin levels are markedly elevated among patients with end-stage renal disease and are lower after kidney transplant. However, this topic is still debated in the literature. Here, we evaluated the effect of transplant on platelet function markers (P-selectin and platelet aggregation) and adiponectin in renal transplant patients...

OBJECTIVES: Evaluate whether poor mobilisers had delayed haematopoietic (neutrophil and platelet) recovery despite receiving similar cell dose as good mobilisers. BACKGROUND: Autologous haematopoietic progenitor cell (HPC) transplantation is indicated to treat some haematological malignancies. This procedure requires HPC mobilisation from bone marrow to peripheral blood. Cell dose is important for a fast haematological recovery. Despite being poor mobilisers, some patients can collect enough cell numbers for transplantation...
