Background: Several studies have shown that detection of minimal residual disease (MRD) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an independent prognostic factor. This study aimed to evaluate the significance of dynamic MRD pretransplantation on outcome of AML patients receiving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 145 consecutive AML patients undergoing allo-HSCT in complete remission status between June 2013 and June 2016...

Development of exercise guidelines for individuals with sickle cell trait (SCT) and sickle cell anemia (SCA) is hampered by the need to weigh the benefits against risks of exercise in these populations. In SCT, concern for exercise collapse associated with sickle cell trait has resulted in controversial screening of student athletes for SCT. In SCA, there exists unsubstantiated concerns that high-intensity exercise may result in pain and other complications. In both, finding the "right dose" of exercise remains a challenge for patients and their providers...

INTRODUCTION: The use of stem cell therapy (SCT) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection for knee osteoarthritis (OA) is extremely controversial and at best experimental stage. These treatments are being offered across the nation for "cash-only payments." Our objectives were to determine (1) what proportion of board-certified orthopedic surgeons in Miami-Dade County offer SCT or PRP and (2) how much do practices charge for these services. METHODS: All board-certified orthopedic surgeons' offices in Miami-Dade County were identified by their American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons active membership...

OBJECTIVES: Patients undergoing stem cell transplant (SCT) for the treatment of hematologic malignancy are at increased risk for central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs). The use of prophylactic antibiotics to prevent CLABSIs in the setting of autologous SCT is of unclear benefit. We aimed to evaluate the impact of levofloxacin prophylaxis on reducing CLABSIs in this high-risk population. METHODS: Patients undergoing autologous SCT at a tertiary-care hospital received levofloxacin prophylaxis from January 13, 2016 to January 12, 2017...

Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) syndrome is an autosomal recessive chromosomal breakage syndrome caused by mutation of the ataxia-telangiectasia mutated gene manifested by progressive neurodegeneration, telangiectasias of sclera and skin, immune deficiency with sinopulmonary infections, and increased incidence of lymphoid malignancies and solid tumors. Three children with A-T underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) using protocols for Fanconi anemia. All 3 patients were engrafted with a mixed donor-recipient chimerism, but the full donor engraftment was observed in the T lymphocyte compartment...

Post-stroke depression (PSD) is one of the most frequent complications of stroke. The Yi-nao-jie-yu prescription (YNJYP) is an herbal prescription widely used as a therapeutic agent against PSD in traditional Chinese medicine. Disruption of adult neurogenesis has attracted attention as a potential cause of cognitive pathophysiology in neurological and psychiatric disorders. The Notch signaling pathway plays an important role in neurogenesis. This study investigated the effects of YNJYP on adult neurogenesis and explored its underlying molecular mechanism in a rat model of PSD that is established by middle cerebral artery occlusion and accompanied by chronic immobilization stress for 1 week...

OBJECTIVE: Salmonella enterica infections can lead to Reactive Arthritis (ReA), which can exhibit an association with human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-B*27:05, a molecule prone to misfolding and initiation of the unfolded protein response (UPR). This study examined how HLA-B*27:05 expression and the UPR affect the Salmonella life-cycle within epithelial cells. METHODS: Isogenic epithelial cell lines expressing two copies of either HLA-B*27:05 and a control HLA-B*35:01 heavy chain (HC) were generated to determine the effect on the Salmonella infection life-cycle...

BACKGROUND: Stem cell transplantation (SCT) outcomes have improved over the last three decades, with many patients being rescued with this treatment. However, improved outcomes have led to issues with long-term sequelae. One of these sequelae in children is renal dysfunction, an index of which is estimated using glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). PROCEDURE: We retrospectively analyzed eGFR in 83 pediatric patients who received SCT. Data from all patients extended up to 12 months or more post SCT...

BACKGROUND: The outcome of childhood acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in first relapse (rAML) remains poor. Reported overall survival (OS) rates vary between high-income developed countries and those with fewer resources. The OS of rAML in high-income developing countries (HIDCs) has not been reported. PATIENTS AND MATERIALS: A multicenter study was performed in an HIDC. The outcome of patients with relapsed non-M3/non-Down syndrome AML was evaluated. Three-year OS was computed using the Kaplan-Meier method, and predictors of OS were analyzed using a Cox proportional hazards model...

Background: The Baltimore reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) regimen using high-dose post-transplant cyclophosphamide (PTCY) is considered as a standard of care for haploidentical allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT). However, it is associated with relatively low survivals and high incidence of relapse, especially when considering myeloid malignancies. Results: This retrospective study included 36 adults (males n = 18; median age: 60.5 years old; haplodonors n = 27; matched donors n = 8) with myeloid malignancies transplanted between March 2014 and March 2017 at the University Hospital of Nantes...
