blood cell cordon transplant in leukemia

Laura Del Pup, Sergio De Angeli, Maria Teresa Conconi, Claudio Grandi, Pier Giorgio Gamba, Pier Paolo Parnigotto, Gastone G Nussdorfer
Cordonal blood (CB) is today recognized as a potentially important source of hematopoietic stem cells (SCs) for allogeneic transplantation, and to this task it would be of extreme importance to have the possibility of using cryopreserved CB units. Hence we investigated whether freezing and thawing alter the viability of CB hematopoietic cells. Mononuclear cells, recovered from fresh CB units by density-gradient centrifugation, were partly frozen and then thawed and partly immediately utilized for clonogenic tests...

An increased incidence of different malignancies associated to chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has been reported. The association of CLL and acute leukemia is a rare event described in < 1% of CLL, the type of acute leukemia being either from the lymphoid or more often from the myeloid lineage. The coexistence of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and CLL in the same patient has been occasionally reported. Most of these cases have been associated with the administration of chemotherapy or radiotherapy for CLL, suggesting that the former may be a secondary leukemia...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To investigate the feasibility of peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplantion in patients with high-risk chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in remission after fludarabine therapy, the clinical impact of minimal residual disease (MRD) monitoring and the immunologic reconstitution after transplantation. DESIGN AND METHODS: Twenty CLL patients, in clinical complete remission (CR) after fludarabine, were offered an unmanipulated PBSC transplant and were longitudinally monitored for MRD and immunologic reconstitution...

We have evaluated the number and differentiation pattern of CD34+ cells, as well as the CFU-GM, BFU-E and CFU-GEMM progenitors from the blood (PB) and marrow (BM) of 53 chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) patients. Twenty-four patients were untreated and 29 were studied at 2 months from the last course of fludarabine or chlorambucil; 6 patients, studied after fludarabine therapy, were further evaluated after mobilization with cyclophosphamide and G-CSF. PB of untreated patients showed a median number of CD34+ cells, CFU-GM, BFU-E and CFU-GEMM/10(5) seeded cells and per litre of PB similar to those of normal controls...
