Myelodysplatic syndrome transplant

Wenqing Hu, Bing Shi, Lihui Liu, Shengke He, Liping Ye, DengMei Tian, Yongqing Zhang
Linezolid (LZD), severed as the first oxazolidinone antibiotic, was active against multidrug-resistant gram-positive strains. LZD can induce thrombocytopenia, anemia and leukocytopenia. Currently, reports on pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) cases induced by LZD are relatively rare (4-7). In this paper, we reported a patient with PRCA twice induced by LZD. A 37-year-old man was diagnosed with myelodysplatic syndrome (MDS) and underwent allo-HSCT from an unrelated donor with ABO blood type and leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matching...

Myelodisplastic syndromes (MDS) are heterogeneous myeloid disorders characterized by peripheral cytopenias and increased risk of transformation into acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). MDS are generally suspected in the presence of cytopenia on routine analysis and the evaluation of bone marrow cells morphology and cellularity leads to correct diagnosis of MDS. The incidence of MDS is approximately five cases per 100,000 people per year in the general population, but it increases up to 50 cases per 100,000 people per year after 60 years of age...

BACKGROUND: The outcome of patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) post clofarabine is unknown. METHODS: We reviewed 109 patients with MDS or CMML with a median age of 67 years, treated with a clofarabine-based chemotherapy as frontline (n = 38) or salvage (n = 71) therapy. A total of 58 (53%) patients received salvage therapy after clofarabine failure: 13 allogeneic stem cell transplant (ASCT), 18 high-dose cytarabine-containing regimen, 10 hypomethylating agents and 17 investigational treatments...

Allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (Allo-PBSCT) has in recent years become an alternative to allogeneic bone marrow transplantation because it facilitates rapid hematopoietic reconstitution without an increase in the incidence of severe graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). We report on a 61-year-old man with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and myelofibrosis who received an allo-PBSCT from his HLA-matched 68-year-old brother. The preparative regimen consisted of busulfan and cyclophosphamide. Cyclosporin A and methotrexate were administered for GVHD prophylaxis...
