Patients needing a hematopoietic cell transplant but who lack a suitably matched donor in their family can search the Be The Match registry for a matched unrelated donor or cord blood unit. Hematopoietic cells can come from bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, or the circulating blood peripheral blood stem cells PBSCs. The Be The Match registry is one of many registries of unrelated donors and cord blood units in the world. The NMDP also has nearly 165,000 cord blood units, listed by HLA type, in its Be The Match registry. Although based in the United States, the NMDP has worldwide ...

In the United States, there are more than 100,000 people on the organ transplant waiting list. Each day, an average of 79 people receive organ transplants while an average of 18 people die waiting for a transplant that was not available. Among the most common organs transplanted are kidney, heart, liver and lung. The medical science is sufficiently advanced that organ transplantation has become an acceptable treatment for organ failure, a condition that in years past had few if any treatment options. More than 70 percent of organ transplant recipients survive at least five years after most types of organ transplants. Yet, despite all this, the gap between people on the transplant waiting list and available organs is widening. Organs donors can be living or deceased. Living ...

"I couldn't sleep at night if I passed up those opportunities to possibly save someone's life," he said. Anhel is a proud member of the National Marrow Donor Program's "Be the Match Registry." Just last week, he donated some bone marrow to help a 16-year-old boy suffering from leukemia. "I try to put myself in somebody else's shoes," he said. "I can't imagine being a 16-year-old kid and going through all that on top of the normal stuff teens deal with." A bone marrow transplant is a lifesaving treatment for people with blood cancers like leukemia and ...

Amanda was my stem cell donor and thankfully for me her immune system has settled nicely into my body and kicked the crap out of my cancer. Thank you Amanda. Dear Cells, 365 days ago I hoped that you would be enough. 365 days ago I prayed you would perform heroically. 365 days ago I asked that you would work above and beyond my normal expectations. I put my faith, and hope and courage in you. 365 days ago you had poor odds for success and yet I prayed that you would fight hard and be unforgiving and succeed. 365 days later you have beat the odds. 365 days later you have been unforgiving. You have done everything I asked of you and more. You have fulfilled my faith, my hopes and refueled my courage.

Medical Metamorphosis: Should organ donors be paid. 7.12.2007 Should organ donors be paid. Brad ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Should organ donors be paid. The idea isn’t new: in a 1997 Business Week column GSB professor Gary Becker, AM’53, PhD’55, asserted that “the federal government might be designated as the only authority with the power to buy organs for transplants and would allocate them to hospitals with patients that need transplants.” In a working paper Becker and Julio Jorge Elías, AM’01, PhD’05, argue that monetary incentives could increase the organ supply, eliminating the long waiting list “without increasing the total cost of transplant surgery by a large percent.” They estimate the value of a kidney at around $15,000 and a liver around $35,000. Yet cash might not be the preferred incentive, notes law professor Richard Epstein, who organized a July 6–7 Law School conference on transplant policy and in April ...

Organ Donation: The Gift of Life The need for donors There are over 4,000 people in Canada right now who are waiting for a solid-organ transplant. Over the last decade, the number of organ donors in Canada has increased from just over 800 per year to just over 1000 per year as of 2009. The ability to use living donors for example partial liver transplants or kidney transplants has greatly accounted for this increase. But the last decade has also seen an increase in the need for organ donation. For example, the incidence of end-stage renal disease has increased quite a bit, causing an increase in the demand for kidney donation. Almost 300 Canadians die each year while waiting for an organ transplant. Underlying this unfortunate statistic is the fact that Canada has one of the lowest rates of organ ...

... Tale of a Cord Blood Transplantee Who Relapses and Goes on to Have a Matched Unrelated-Donor Transplant. Miracle Workers Wanted. I'm alive today because two mothers donated their baby's umbilical cords to a blood bank. More than 3000 people a year are given a chance to survive blood cancer because ordinary people have registered to be bone marrow or stem cell donors. The National Marrow Donor Program is sponsoring its annual "Thanks Mom Marrow Donor Drive." Healthy people between the ages of 18-60 are eligible to register with the Program. Join the Registry during the Thanks Mom Drive May 5-16, and you can register for free. Donating bone marrow is not painful and has minimal risks. Most transplants these days use peripheral blood stem cells, not bone marrow. This involves receiving several injections to stimulate stem cell production, and then donating your cells through apheresis, a process similar to traditional blood donation. The NMDP Registry explains how to do this. Be part of a miracle. ...

The Kong family now is racing against time to find a matching donor. "We really only have until the end of Jeremy's treatment in mid-November to find a suitable match for him," said Anthony Kong, a 32-year-old Web developer. "It's what's going to give him the best chance to find a cure." The Kong family has been assisted in their search by the Asian American Donor Program, an Alameda-based nonprofit devoted to recruiting people to donate bone marrow and/or stem cells for patients in need. Because Jeremy is Chinese-American, it is likely that his match also will be of Chinese descent or another Asian background. The Kong family and the nonprofit are working furiously to change that and have scheduled many donor registration drives this month in Fremont and other Bay Area cities. Saturday at 37720 ...

Also, HIV belongs to a recently discovered class of viruses known as retroviruses - which all cause persistent infection: once in the body, HIV is there for life. Figures are for total number of cases of full-blown AIDS by year and country. HIV 'targets' T-cells, the body's main line of defence against all other infections.

... 'Multiple displacement amplification MDA ' is a non-PCR based DNA amplification technique. This method can rapidly amplify minute amounts of DNA samples to a reasonable quantity for genomic analysis. The reaction starts by annealing random hexamer primers to the template: DNA synthesis is carried out by a high fidelity enzyme, preferentially Φ29 DNA polymerase, at a constant temperature. This method has been actively used in whole genome amplification WGA and is a promising method for application to single cell genome sequencing and sequencing-based genetic studies. Applications Single cell genome sequencing. Many biological and forensic cases involving genetic analysis require sequencing of DNA from minute amounts of sample, such as DNA from uncultured single cells or trace amounts of tissue collected from crime scenes. Conventional Polymerase Chain Reaction PCR -based DNA amplification methods require sequence-specific oligonucleotide primers and heat-stable usually 'Taq' polymerase, and can be ...

... BioMedSearch. Advanced Search. Tools. Search Tutorial. Login. Create Free Account. Document Detail. RNA quality assessment: a view from plant qPCR studies. MedLine Citation:. PMID: 23045609 Owner: NLM Status: Publisher. Reverse transcription-quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction RT-qPCR is probably the most common molecular technique used in transcriptome analyses today. The simplicity of the technology and associated protocols that generate results without the need to understand the underlying principles has made RT-qPCR the method of choice for RNA quantification. Rather than the 'gold standard technology' often used to describe it, the performance of RT-qPCR suffers from considerable pitfalls during general workflow. The inconsistency of conventional methods for the evaluation of RNA quality and its influence on qPCR performance as well as stability of reference genes is summarized and discussed here. 23562879 - Simple, rapid, inexpensive platform for the diagnosis of malaria by loop ...

(1/3426) Effect of MTHFR 677C>T on plasma total homocysteine levels in renal graft recipients.

BACKGROUND: Hyperhomocysteinemia is an established, independent risk factor for vascular disease morbidity and mortality. The 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene polymorphism C677T has been shown to result in increased total homocysteine concentrations on the basis of low folate levels caused by a decreased enzyme activity. The effect of this polymorphism on total homocysteine and folate plasma levels in renal transplant patients is unknown. METHODS: We screened 636 kidney graft recipients for the presence of the MTHFR C677T gene polymorphism. The major determinants of total homocysteine and folate plasma concentrations of 63 patients, who were identified to be homozygous for this gene polymorphism compared with heterozygotes (N = 63), and patients with wild-type alleles (N = 63), who were matched for sex, age, glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and body mass index, were identified by analysis of covariance. The variables included sex, age, GFR, body mass index, time since transplantation, folate and vitamin B12 levels, the use of azathioprine, and the MTHFR genotype. To investigate the impact of the kidney donor MTHFR genotype on total homocysteine and folate plasma concentrations, a similar model was applied in 111 kidney graft recipients with stable graft function, in whom the kidney donor C677T MTHFR gene polymorphism was determined. RESULTS: The allele frequency of the C677T polymorphism in the MTHFR gene was 0.313 in the whole study population [wild-type (CC), 301; heterozygous (CT), 272; and homozygous mutant (TT), 63 patients, respectively] and showed no difference in the patient subgroups with various renal diseases. The MTHFR C677T gene polymorphism significantly influenced total homocysteine and folate plasma concentrations in renal transplant recipients (P = 0.0009 and P = 0.0002, respectively). Furthermore, a significant influence of the GFR (P = 0.0001), folate levels (P = 0.0001), age (P = 0.0001), body mass index (P = 0.0001), gender (P = 0.0005), and vitamin B12 levels (P = 0.004) on total homocysteine concentrations was observed. The donor MTHFR gene polymorphism had no influence on total homocysteine and folate levels. Geometric mean total homocysteine levels in patients homozygous for the mutant MTHFR allele were 18.6 micromol/liter compared with 14.6 micromol/liter and 14.9 micromol/liter in patients heterozygous for the MTHFR gene polymorphism and those with wild-type alleles (P < 0.05 for TT vs. CT and CC). Geometric mean folate levels were lower in CT and TT patients (11.2 and 10.2 nmol/liter) compared with CC patients (13.6 nmol/liter, P < 0.05 vs. CT and TT). CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that homozygosity for the C677T polymorphism in the MTHFR gene significantly increases total homocysteine concentrations and lowers folate levels in kidney graft recipients, even in patients with excellent renal function (GFR more than median). These findings have important implications for risk evaluation and vitamin intervention therapy in these patients who carry an increased risk for the development of cardiovascular disease.  (+info)

(2/3426) A prospective, randomized trial of tacrolimus/prednisone versus tacrolimus/prednisone/mycophenolate mofetil in renal transplant recipients.

BACKGROUND: Between September 20, 1995 and September 20, 1997, 208 adult patients undergoing renal transplantation were randomized to receive tacrolimus/prednisone (n=106) or tacrolimus/prednisone/mycophenolate mofetil (n=102), with the goal of reducing the incidence of rejection. METHODS: The mean recipient age was 50.7+/-13.7 years. Sixty-three (30.3%) patients were 60 years of age or older at the time of transplantation. The mean donor age was 34.5+/-21.7 years. The mean cold ischemia time was 30.5+/-9.2 hr. The mean follow-up is 15+/-7 months. RESULTS: The overall 1-year actuarial patient survival was 94%; the overall 1-year actuarial graft survival was 87%. When the patient and graft survival data were stratified to recipients under the age of 60 who did not have delayed graft function, the overall 1-year actuarial patient survival was 97%, and the corresponding 1-year actuarial graft survival was 93%. There were no differences between the two groups. The overall incidence of rejection was 36%; in the double-therapy group, it was 44%, whereas in the triple therapy group, it was 27% (P=0.014). The mean serum creatinine was 1.6+/-0.8 mg/dl. A total of 36% of the successfully transplanted patients were taken off prednisone; 32% of the patients were taken off antihypertensive medications. The incidence of delayed graft function was 21%, the incidence of cytomegalovirus was 12.5%, and the initial and final incidences of posttransplant insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus were 7.0% and 2.9%; again, there was no difference between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: This trial suggests that the combination of tacrolimus, steroids, and mycophenolate mofetil is associated with excellent patient and graft survival and a lower incidence of rejection than the combination of tacrolimus and steroids.  (+info)

(3/3426) Pediatric renal transplantation under tacrolimus-based immunosuppression.

BACKGROUND: Tacrolimus has been used as a primary immunosuppressive agent in adult and pediatric renal transplant recipients, with reasonable outcomes. Methods. Between December 14, 1989 and December 31, 1996, 82 pediatric renal transplantations alone were performed under tacrolimus-based immunosuppression without induction anti-lymphocyte antibody therapy. Patients undergoing concomitant or prior liver and/or intestinal transplantation were not included in the analysis. The mean recipient age was 10.6+/-5.2 years (range: 0.7-17.9). Eighteen (22%) cases were repeat transplantations, and 6 (7%) were in patients with panel-reactive antibody levels over 40%. Thirty-four (41%) cases were with living donors, and 48 (59%) were with cadaveric donors. The mean donor age was 27.3+/-14.6 years (range: 0.7-50), and the mean cold ischemia time in the cadaveric cases was 26.5+/-8.8 hr. The mean number of HLA matches and mismatches was 2.8+/-1.2 and 2.9+/-1.3; there were five (6%) O-Ag mismatches. The mean follow-up was 4.0+/-0.2 years. RESULTS: The 1- and 4-year actuarial patient survival was 99% and 94%. The 1- and 4-year actuarial graft survival was 98% and 84%. The mean serum creatinine was 1.1+/-0.5 mg/dl, and the corresponding calculated creatinine clearance was 88+/-25 ml/min/1.73 m2. A total of 66% of successfully transplanted patients were withdrawn from prednisone. In children who were withdrawn from steroids, the mean standard deviation height scores (Z-score) at the time of transplantation and at 1 and 4 years were -2.3+/-2.0, -1.7+/-1.0, and +0.36+/-1.5. Eighty-six percent of successfully transplanted patients were not taking anti-hypertensive medications. The incidence of acute rejection was 44%; between December 1989 and December 1993, it was 63%, and between January 1994 and December 1996, it was 23% (P=0.0003). The incidence of steroid-resistant rejection was 5%. The incidence of delayed graft function was 5%, and 2% of patients required dialysis within 1 week of transplantation. The incidence of cytomegalovirus was 13%; between December 1989 and December 1992, it was 17%, and between January 1993 and December 1996, it was 12%. The incidence of early Epstein-Barr virus-related posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) was 9%; between December 1989 and December 1992, it was 17%, and between January 1993 and December 1996, it was 4%. All of the early PTLD cases were treated successfully with temporary cessation of immunosuppression and institution of antiviral therapy, without patient or graft loss. CONCLUSIONS: These data demonstrate the short- and medium-term efficacy of tacrolimus-based immunosuppression in pediatric renal transplant recipients, with reasonable patient and graft survival, routine achievement of steroid and anti-hypertensive medication withdrawal, gratifying increases in growth, and, with further experience, a decreasing incidence of both rejection and PTLD.  (+info)

(4/3426) Split liver transplantation.

OBJECTIVE: This study reviews the indications, technical aspects, and experience with ex vivo and in situ split liver transplantation. BACKGROUND: The shortage of cadaveric donor livers is the most significant factor inhibiting further application of liver transplantation for patients with end-stage liver disease. Pediatric recipients, although they represent only 15% to 20% of the liver transplant registrants, suffer the greatest from the scarcity of size-matched cadaveric organs. Split liver transplantation provides an ideal means to expand the donor pool for both children and adults. METHODS: This review describes the evolution of split liver transplantation from reduced liver transplantation and living-related liver transplantation. The two types of split liver transplantation, ex vivo and in situ, are compared and contrasted, including the technique, selection of patients for each procedure, and the most current results. RESULTS: Ex vivo splitting of the liver is performed on the bench after removal from the cadaver. It is usually divided into two grafts: segments 2 and 3 for children, and segments 4 to 8 for adults. Since 1990, 349 ex vivo grafts have been reported. Until recently, graft and patient survival rates have been lower and postoperative complication rates higher in ex vivo split grafts than in whole organ cadaveric transplantation. Further, the use of ex vivo split grafts has been relegated to the elective adult patient because of the high incidence of graft dysfunction (right graft) when placed in an emergent patient. Reasons for the poor function of ex vivo splits except in elective patients have focused on graft damage due to prolonged cold ischemia times and rewarming during the long benching procedure. In situ liver splitting is accomplished in a manner identical to the living donor procurement. This technique for liver splitting results in the same graft types as in the ex vivo technique. However, graft and patient survival rates reported for in situ split livers have exceeded 85% and 90%, respectively, with a lower incidence of postoperative complications, including biliary and reoperation for bleeding. These improved results have also been observed in the urgent patient. CONCLUSION: Splitting of the cadaveric liver expands the donor pool of organs and may eliminate the need for living-related donation for children. Recent experience with the ex vivo technique, if applied to elective patients, results in patient and graft survival rates comparable to whole-organ transplantation, although postoperative complication rates are higher. In situ splitting provides two grafts of optimal quality that can be applied to the entire spectrum of transplant recipients: it is the method of choice for expanding the cadaver liver donor pool.  (+info)

(5/3426) High-risk donors: expanding donor criteria.

Advances in the surgical techniques, preservation solutions, and methods for predicting eventual long-term renal function from expanded donors will be critical in allowing precise selection criteria for kidneys for transplantation, resulting in the optimum use of a scarce and precious resource. Until other options such as xenotransplantation or tissue engineering become realistic, the challenge for the millennium will be to identify which donor organs previously considered suboptimal can be safely used to expand the organ donor pool.  (+info)

(6/3426) Correction of bone marrow failure in dyskeratosis congenita by bone marrow transplantation.

Dyskeratosis congenita is recognized by its dermal lesions and constitutional aplastic anemia in some cases. We report successful allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in two siblings with this disease from their sister, and their long term follow-up. We used reduced doses of cyclophosphamide and busulfan for conditioning instead of total body irradiation. Also, we report late adverse effects of transplantation which are not distinguishable from the natural course of disease.  (+info)

(7/3426) Relaxin secretion by human granulosa cell culture is predictive of in-vitro fertilization-embryo transfer success.

We have developed a cell culture system for human luteinizing granulosa cells which supports the timely and dynamic secretion of oestrogen, progesterone and relaxin in patterns that mimic serum concentrations of these hormones during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. There was a wide variation in the amount of relaxin secreted by the cultured cells for the 69 patients studied. As relaxin production was generally maximal by day 10 of culture, comparisons were made at this time point. It was observed that most of the conceptions occurred in patients with higher relaxin secretion in vitro. All cycles with relaxin > 800 pg/ml on day 10 had a term pregnancy while only 13% of cycles with relaxin < 200 pg/ml had term pregnancies. A limited number of cycles from donor/recipient cycles did not show similar results. Steroid concentrations were not predictive of conception. These results demonstrated that in-vitro production of relaxin is predictive of implantation success in in-vitro fertilization (IVF)-embryo transfer cycles. This supports the hypothesis that relaxin may be involved in implantation and that lowered relaxin concentrations may be a partial cause of poor pregnancy rates after IVF.  (+info)

(8/3426) Short-term toxicity in pediatric marrow transplantation using related and unrelated donors.

The use of volunteer, unrelated donors has substantially increased the number of potential donors for pediatric marrow transplantation during the past few years. We describe our single institution experience of short-term toxicity after pediatric marrow transplantation using sibling or unrelated donors. Fully matched (A, B and DR loci) donors were employed in 94% of the cases in both groups. Conditioning of similar intensity and uniform supportive care were employed in the two groups. Both primary non-engraftment and secondary graft failure were more common among recipients of unmanipulated URD grafts. Clinically significant (grades III-IV) acute GVHD and toxic mortality during the immediate post-transplant period were also higher in this group of patients. Pediatric marrow transplantation using volunteer, unrelated donors appears to be associated with an increased incidence of procedure-related toxic complications.  (+info)

Genetically Modification of an Embryo as a treatment for a terminally ill child?


  • Consider that the child that you have or will have is terminally ill, and a possible treatment can come from them having a tissue donor. The other children that you have are not matches to the sick one. would you consider having an embryo chosen to match the child that you already have so that s/he can be a tissue and potentially an organ donor for your sick child? Why or why not? This is for a research paper... I need people's opinions, I do not have a terminally ill child.
  • I would say yes because saving a life that is already in existence is more important. The embryo may or may not come to its successful final outcome. Though it is not an easy decision.... Hope it helps.


How do you get rid of piercing scar tissue?


  • I have scar tissue from a piercing that got infected and had to remove it. Is there any products that get rid of or at least minimize the scar tissue?
  • as far as i know the only way to get rid of scar tissue is through surgery


How do you get rid of scar tissue from a cartilege piercing with out letting the hole close?


  • I have a cartilege piercing on my upper left ear, and I was wondering how you can get ride of scar tissue with out letting the piercing close. I've had the peircing since January. I really don't want the the scar tissue there because its annoying and I just want to wear my earring. Please.
  • Not possible. You need to close the hole in order to massage the area and finally crack the scar tissue.


How do I get rid of the scar tissue on my tongue?


  • Well, I got my tongue pierced about 3 weeks ago and in front of my piercing is this little tiny hard piece of scar tissue, I mean it isn't that annoying but is there anyway I can make it go away? I tried brushing it with a toothbrush and it got a little swollen for a while and went back to its same size. Will it go away naturally or what? Thanks. There is no way I am going to take out my tongue piercing so I am going to trust the girl who said she had one but it goes away. Plus I looked online for some information while I was waiting for these answers and I saw one little thing about scar tissue and it said that just because you take out the jewelry doesn't mean that it will just disapeer. But anyways, Thanks for the answers I do appreciate them!!
  • guague your jewelry up.stretching the tissue with remove the scar tissue without much hassle and you can always shrink it back down when youre done if you dont want to keep the larger guage. See a professional piercer just incase this might be a problem.

What are the chances that scar tissue can return?


  • About 3 years ago I had a laparopscopy (??) done to remove scar tissue on my left tube. I was able to get pregnant 2 cycles after this. (We had been trying for 2 years). We are now starting to try for baby #2 and I was wondering if anyone knows what the chances are that the scar tissue can grow back. Since our 2nd child we've moved to another province and all new doctors so I really don't want to go another year of trying before a doctor here will do the tests to see if it's been blocked.
  • I can't give you any specifics, like percents or anything, but any time you have surgery there exists the possibility that scar tissue will form from the surgery itself. As for the original scar tissue, it depends on why you had it to begin with, i.e., was it from endometriosis? If so, there is the possibility the endo grew back. If it was from a pelvic inflammatory disease, then, unless you had another infection, probably doubtful the original scarring could return. Since you have a history with fertility issues, why not schedule an appointment with a regular OB, explain your situation and ask for an HSG (hysterosalpingogram) to see if your tubes are still open? They typically are much more willing to check things out without waiting any set time period since you've already had a problem. I've got endo (took us two years with our first too) and just upon request have been given ultrasounds to see if it's growing back. They didn't even flinch when I asked and it was new doctors for me too.


What are some signs that you have scar tissue from surgery?


  • I had surgery about 7 weeks ago for endometriosis and PCOS (surgery #2 actually). I'm not going into details about the surgery because if you know anything about PCOS or endometriosis, you should already know the details - it'll just keep this question from getting too wordy. Anyway, since the surgery I've had severe pain, along with diarrhea and really bad gas every single day. Does scar tissue cause these kinds of symptoms? The pain is just as bad as it was before the surgery & I had cysts that were nearly an inch in size on my ovary - you know those little buggers hurt like crazy. Anyway, I know I need to see a doctor - so please don't reply with an answer that thoughtless. My doctor has a 5 month waiting list - I can't wait that long. I don't have a family doctor but there's one of those urgent care places down the street from my house. Will a doctor there know enough about my problems to actually help me? Or will I be stuck waiting for 5 months to get an appointment?
  • Maybe it is a bowl obstruction? It is not something that should wait so I would go to the doc asap because it can be potentially seriously. I have had a number of surgeries for endo and scar tissue (4 going on 5). Each time at about 2-4 weeks post surgery I tend to get a partial obstruction. What happens I think is the scarring begins a few weeks after surgery. As it forms it pulls on your internal organs. It is painful and you have gas, diarrhea and sometimes vomiting. I hope you get into the doc soon so you can start feeling better!!


What do you think the lung tissue of a smoker looks like in comparison to a healthy lung tissue?


  • What do you think the lung tissue of a smoker looks like in comparison to a healthy lung tissue?
  • Normal lungs are pink and inflate/collapse normally. It might feel like a soft sponge. In an early smoker without COPD, the lungs will develop a grayish-black discoloration due to tar and soot deposits. With continued smoking, the lung will begin to scar (fibrose), and the lung architecture will become distorted. The lung may take on a rice-krispies-like texture. In severe emphysema, long-term fibrosis may lead to large air pocket formation (bullae), which can expand over time.
