Sirolimus, an immunosuppressant, is indicated post-allogeneic stem cell transplant to reduce the risk of graft-versus-host-disease. Sirolimus is metabolized by cytochrome P450 3A4 and is a substrate of the P-glycoprotein (P-gp) drug efflux pump. Interactions with known inhibitors of the CYP3A4 enzyme and P-glycoprotein, such as fluconazole, are anticipated. Co-administration of fluconazole leads to an increase in sirolimus blood concentrations due to an inhibition of metabolism. The discontinuation of fluconazole will likely result in a decline in sirolimus blood concentrations, leaving patients at risk of graft-versus-host-disease...

In biology, the term "clone" is most widely used to designate genetically identical cells or organisms that are asexually descended from a common progenitor. The concept of clonality in hematology-oncology has received much attention in recent years, as the advent of next-generation sequencing platforms has provided new tools for detection of clonal populations in patients, and experiments on primary cells have provided fascinating new insights into the clonal architecture of human malignancies. The term "clone" is used more loosely by the general public to mean any close or identical copy...

Patients with afibrinogenemia or hypofibrinogenemia present a unique challenge to the arthroplasty surgeon as fibrinogen is a key contributor to hemostasis. Patients with these disorders are known to have a higher risk for postsurgical bleeding complications. We present the case of a patient with hypofibrinogenemia who underwent an elective total knee arthroplasty. Our colleagues in hematology-oncology guided us initially to achieve and maintain appropriate fibrinogen levels in the early perioperative period...
