Allogeneic stem cell transplantation from HLA-matched siblings (MSD-SCT) for elderly patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) is not a widely accepted first-line treatment. Recently, fludarabine, lower-dose cyclophosphamide and antithymocyte globulin conditioning (Flu/lower-dose Cy/ATG) with lower toxicities has been investigated. To determine whether this regimen can overcome the negative effects of age, we analyzed 117 adult patients with SAA who received MSD-SCT using Flu/lower-dose Cy/ATG, and compared outcomes between 63 younger age group (YAG; ⩽40 years) and 54 older age group (OAG; >40 years) patients...

BACKGROUND: Blood transfusion might affect long-term mortality by changing immune function and thus potentially increasing the risk of subsequent infections and cancer recurrence. Compared with a restrictive transfusion strategy, a more liberal strategy could reduce cardiac complications by lowering myocardial damage, thereby reducing future deaths from cardiovascular disease. We aimed to establish the effect of a liberal transfusion strategy on long-term survival compared with a restrictive transfusion strategy...

BACKGROUND: The hemoglobin threshold at which postoperative red-cell transfusion is warranted is controversial. We conducted a randomized trial to determine whether a higher threshold for blood transfusion would improve recovery in patients who had undergone surgery for hip fracture. METHODS: We enrolled 2016 patients who were 50 years of age or older, who had either a history of or risk factors for cardiovascular disease, and whose hemoglobin level was below 10 g per deciliter after hip-fracture surgery...
