Purpose Hematopoietic cell transplant patients are exposed to numerous classes of medications. Transplant practitioners must vigilantly monitor for drug interactions especially involving immunosuppressants. We report a hematopoietic cell transplant patient receiving sirolimus who developed supratherapeutic serum concentrations after initiating mirabegron. Summary A 31-year-old, 98 kg female received a second umbilical cord blood transplant four years after the first transplant for relapsed acute myeloid leukemia...

The European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) risk score has been implemented as an important tool to predict patient outcomes following allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). However, to our knowledge, this score has never been applied in cases of single umbilical cord blood transplantation (sUCBT). We retrospectively analyzed 207 consecutive patients with acute leukemia who received sUCBT at our centre between February 2011 and December 2015. The probability of 3-year overall survival (OS) and leukemia-free survival (LFS) of the entire cohort were 65...

Transplantation of small cord blood (CB) units, or of autologous ex vivo-genetically modified adult hematopoietic stem cells (HSC), face the common challenge of suboptimal HSC doses for infusion and impaired engraftment of the transplanted cells. Ex vivo expansion of HSCs, using either cell-based coculture approaches or especially small molecules have been successfully tested mainly in CB and in prolonged cultures. Here, we explored whether innovative combinations of small molecules can sufficiently, after short culture, expand adult HSCs while retaining their functionality in vivo...

Acid sphingomyelinase (ASM) deficient Niemann-Pick disease is a lysosomal storage disorder resulting from mutations in the SMPD1 gene. The clinical spectrum distinguishes a severe infantile neurological form (type A), a non-neurological visceral form (type B) and a rare intermediate neurovisceral form. We report the first case of presymptomatic cord blood transplantation in a child with the intermediate type of ASM deficiency due to a homozygous Tyr369Cys mutation, whose affected elder brother had developed neurodevelopmental delay from 19 months of age, and had died from severe visceral complications at the age of 3...

Cord blood transplantation (CBT) from HLA-identical sibling is an attractive option for patients with bone-marrow-failures syndromes (BMF), due to the low risk of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and the absence of risk to the donor. We analyzed outcomes of 117 patients with inherited or acquired BMF, who received CBT from a related HLA-identical donor in EBMT centers, between 1988 and 2014. Ninety-seven patients had inherited and 20 patients acquired BMF. Eighty-two patients received a single cord blood (CB) unit, whereas 35 patients received a combination of CB and bone marrow (BM) cells from the same donor...

Although intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) instillation is the standard treatment for carcinoma in situ of the bladder, it is generally contraindicated in immunocompromised patients. Here we report the first case, to our knowledge, of BCG treatment for a bladder cancer patient who had received umbilical cord blood stem cell transplantation (UCBSCT). BCG can be given safely and effectively in select cases where reconstitution of the immune system has been achieved at least 2 years after UCBSCT. This article is protected by copyright...

BACKGROUND: Double-unit cord blood transplantation (CBT) can be used to overcome the limitation of single-unit CBT with low cell content for adults and larger adolescents. However, whether double-unit CBT is superior to single-unit CBT remains controversial. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 228 consecutive hematological malignancies who received CBT between November 2005 and December 2013. Ninety-seven eligible patients met the criteria (age ≥14 years and body weight ≥50kg) and were enrolled in this study...

PURPOSE: Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play a key role in tissue repair and regeneration. Previous studies have shown that infusion of human umbilical cord blood-derived endothelial colony-forming cells improves outcomes in mice subjected to experimental traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, the efficiency of cell transplantation is not satisfactory. Oxidative stress plays a significant role in the survival of transplanted cells following ischemic reperfusion injury. This observational clinical study investigated the correlation between the number of circulating EPCs and plasma levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and malonyldialdehyde (MDA)...

CONTEXT: Due to their renewal and potency, umbilical cord blood (UCB) stem cells have the ability to proliferate and serve as an attractive alternative source for bone marrow transplantation. However, insufficient number of haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in UCB is still a major constraint in clinical applications. OBJECTIVE: In vitro expansion of stem cells on fibronectin (Fn)-coated poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) scaffold can be a proper way to overcome this limitation...

The translocation t(4;11)(q21;q23) is the hallmark genetic abnormality associated with infant pro-B acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) and has the highest frequency of rearrangement in Mixed-lineage leukemia (MLL) leukemias. Unlike other MLL translocations, MLL-AF4-induced proB-ALL is exceptionally difficult to model in mice/humans. Previous work has investigated the relevance of the reciprocal translocation fusion protein AF4-MLL for t(4;11) leukemia, finding that AF4-MLL is capable of inducing proB-ALL without requirement for MLL-AF4 when expressed in murine hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs)...

CHS is a rare immunodeficiency syndrome with defects in the functions of cytotoxic cells and neutrophils. Approximately 85% of patients with CHS undergo an AP within the first decade, which is similar to FHLH. Chemotherapy could induce transient remission, but only allogeneic HCT could correct the underlying genetic defect and prevent relapse. We reported a case of CHS diagnosed at 19 months, who had an elder brother who had previously succumbed to the same disease. The little girl presented with severe AP manifestations including recurrent high fever, enlarged superficial lymph nodes, and extraordinary hepatosplenomegaly occupying the whole abdominal and pelvic cavity...

Polyethylene glycol is a synthetic, biodegradable, and water-soluble polyether. Owing to its good biological and material properties, polyethylene glycol shows promise in spinal cord tissue engineering applications. Although studies have examined repairing spinal cord injury with polyethylene glycol, these compelling findings have not been recently reviewed or evaluated as a whole. Thus, we herein review and summarize the findings of studies conducted both within and beyond China that have examined the repair of spinal cord injury using polyethylene glycol...

Here, we describe a case of primary graft failure with severe sepsis in a boy who experienced frequent relapses of osteosarcoma. The patient had undergone haploidentical bone marrow transplant after engraftment of unrelated cord blood transplant performed 10 months earlier. Considering his severe condition, we transfused autologous peripheral stem cells along with a single dose of etoposide (50 mg/m2). Granulocyte engraftment was confirmed on human leukocyte antigen-microsatellite analysis of bone marrow on day 14...

BACKGROUND: The low incidence of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in neonates decreases the risk of viral transmission with cord blood transplantation. Cord blood donors are screened by testing the maternal sample for total antibodies to CMV. Some cord blood banks also screen cord blood for CMV-DNA. The aim of this study was to develop and validate a multiplex real-time polymerase chain reaction assay to measure CMV viral load in cord blood from asymptomatic infants with congenital CMV infection and to assess the impact of CMV infection on cord blood hematopoietic progenitor cell concentrations and colony-forming unit functionality...

Clinical manifestation of high grade fever and skin rash prior to neutrophil engraftment, which is called pre-engraftment syndrome (PES) or pre-engraftment immune reaction, has been frequently observed after cord blood transplantation (CBT). The pathophysiology of PES is poorly understood, but cytokine storm during the early phase of CBT is thought to be one of the main cause of PES. However, the cytokine profiles of PES after CBT are unclear. Therefore, we examined the relationship between serum cytokine profiles and PES in 44 adult patients who received CBT in our institute between February 2013 and June 2016...

Umbilical cord (UC) derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) show immunoregulatory properties on various immune cells and display therapeutic effects on various autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of SLE environment on UC MSCs and to identify the possible serum biomarker to predict the therapeutic effect. UC MSCs were cocultured with peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from active lupus patients and the proliferation, apoptosis and surface markers of UC MSCs were observed...
