BACKGROUND: Besides peripheral cytopenias, bone marrow abnormalities, such as fibrosis, pure red cell aplasia, and aplastic anemia have been reported in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), suggesting that bone marrow may be a target organ in SLE. Our objective was to describe this bone marrow involvement. METHODS: This registry is a nationwide retrospective study. Centers provided data concerning medical history, SLE manifestations, type of hematologic disorder, treatments and outcome...

In the general population, older age is associated with short leukocyte telomere length and with high risk of infections. In a recent study of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation for severe aplastic anemia, long donor leukocyte telomere length was associated with improved survival in the recipients. These findings suggest that leukocyte telomere length could possibly be a marker of immune competence. Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that shorter leukocyte telomere length is associated with higher risk of infectious disease hospitalization and infection related death...

Human parvovirus (HPV) B19 is linked to a variety of clinical manifestations, such as erythema infectiosum, nonimmune hydrops fetalis, and transient aplastic anemia. Although a few cases have shown HPVB19 infection as a possible causative agent for hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia (HAAA) in immunocompetent patients, most reported cases of HAAA following transient hepatitis did not have delayed remission. Here we report a rare case of severe aplastic anemia following acute hepatitis with prolonged jaundice due to HPVB19 infection in a previously healthy young male...

The Japanese National Research Group on Idiopathic Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes has been conducting prospective registration, central review, and follow-up study for patients with aplastic anemia and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) since 2006. Using this database, we retrospectively analyzed the prognosis of patients with MDS. As of May 2016, 351 cases were registered in this database, 186 of which were eligible for the present study. Kaplan-Meier analysis showed that overall survival (OS) curves of the five risk categories stipulated by the revised international prognostic scoring system (IPSS-R) were reasonably separated...

The infusion of healthy stem cells into a patient, termed stem cell therapy, has shown great promise for the treatment of genetic and non-genetic diseases including mucopolysaccharidosis type 1, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, numerous immunodeficiency disorders, and aplastic anemia. Stem cells for cell therapy can be collected from the patient (autologous) or collected from another "healthy" individual (allogeneic). The use of allogenic stem cells is accompanied with the potentially fatal risk that the transplanted donor T cells will reject the patient's cells, a process termed graft-versus-host disease...

Although hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) with a conditioning regimen consisting of fludarabine (F-araA) and cyclophosphamide (Cy) is associated with improved outcome in young patients with aplastic anemia (AA) and Fanconi anemia (FA), several factors limit the success of the procedure. We evaluated the population pharmacokinetics (POPPK) of F-araA and its influence on HSCT outcome in patients (n=53) with AA and FA undergoing HSCT. Patients carrying a 5'-UTR polymorphism in NT5E gene (rs2295890 G>C) exhibited significantly lower plasma F-araA clearance compared to those with wild-type genotype (7...

REVIEW
Harinder Gill, Raymond S M Wong, Yok-Lam Kwong
Thrombopoietin (TPO) is the most potent cytokine stimulating thrombopoiesis. Therapy with exogenous TPO is limited by the formation of antibodies cross-reacting with endogenous TPO. Mimetics of TPO are compounds with no antigenic similarity to TPO. Eltrombopag is an orally-active nonpeptide small molecule that binds to the transmembrane portion of the TPO receptor MPL. Initial trials of eltrombopag have centered on immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), which is due to both increased destruction and decreased production of platelets...

PURPOSE: Chloramphenicol and tetracycline are not recommended for treating scrub typhus in pediatric patients because of potential side effects, such as aplastic anemia or tooth discoloration. While clarithromycin has recently been used in adults, few reports have been published on its effects in pediatric patients. We report the clinical profiles of pediatric scrub typhus and the effects of clarithromycin on scrub typhus in children. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed medical records of 56 children with scrub typhus who were admitted between 2004 and 2013 to Chonbuk National University Hospital, Jeonju, Korea...

The past decade or longer has witnessed an acceleration in our understanding of previously developed immune system and clonal evolution mechanisms, and the genesis of more novel concepts of telomere attrition. Many of these concepts are steadily finding their way into translation in various aspects of clinical practice, and provide prospects to improve AA management and inform therapeutic strategy development. In this review, we intend to discuss the pathophysiology and treatments with an emphasis on most recent developments to provide an update on our understanding of disease mechanisms...

Disseminating cells of a primary solid tumor may represent the origin of metastases and relapses. We aimed at comparing the diagnostic efficacy of multicolor flow cytometry (MFC) and morphology/immunohistochemistry (IHC) in the detection of disseminated tumor cells in the bone marrow (BM) and body fluids of patients with solid tumors, and in pediatric neuroblastoma cases. We investigated 72 samples retrospecively from 50 patients by MFC. Morphology/IHC data were available in 48 cases. In the first cohort, 36 samples derived from 34 patients with various forms of suspected and proven solid tumors and in the second cohort, 36 samples of 16 children with suspected and proven neuroblastoma were analyzed at diagnosis or during follow-up in a 4-color setting by MFC, and the results were compared with those obtained by IHC...
