  • solid tumors
  • It's also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia. (vitals.com)
  • differentiate
  • In current terminology, CFU-S refers to the pluripotent stem cells that can differentiate into all types of blood cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Possible mechanisms of recovery include: Generation of heart muscle cells Stimulation of growth of new blood vessels to repopulate damaged heart tissue Secretion of growth factors Assistance via some other mechanism It may be possible to have adult bone-marrow cells differentiate into heart muscle cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients who suffer from RD will now have more stem cells that can differentiate into immune cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Leukemia
  • With the advent of bone marrow transplanation, most later reported cases have been in those undergoing treatment for leukemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • This includes: 15-20% of patients with neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) 25% of patients with mutations in one of the RAS family of oncogenes (only in their leukemia cells) Another 35% of patients with a mutation in a gene called PTPN11 (again, only in their leukemia cells). (wikipedia.org)
  • abnormalities
  • Within the next 10 years, over 50% of patients presenting haematological abnormalities will have developed pancytopenia, defined as abnormalities in two or more blood cell lineages. (wikipedia.org)
  • platelet count
  • Because macrocytosis usually precedes a low platelet count, patients with typical congenital anomalies associated with FA should be evaluated for an elevated red blood cell mean corpuscular volume. (wikipedia.org)
  • barrier
  • The disc allows for controlled release of carmustine in the extracellular fluid of the brain, thus eliminating the need for the encapsulated drug to cross the blood-brain barrier. (wikipedia.org)
  • This crosses the bone marrow barrier to the blood and is consumed in the lung by alveolar macrophages. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • Therefore, HLH should be included in the differential diagnosis of ICU (Intensive Care Unit) patients with cytopenia and hyperferritinemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • In children, a ferritin above 10000 is very sensitive and specific for the diagnosis of HLH, however, the diagnostic utility for ferritin is less for adult HLH patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many FA patients (about 30%) do not have any of the classic physical findings, but Diepoxybutane chromosome fragility assay showing increased chromosomal breaks can make the diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The average age of patients at diagnosis is 2 years old. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • Further studies are needed to establish the merit of this procedure for MS patients. (springer.com)
  • When a splenectomy is scheduled, JMML patients are advised to receive vaccines against Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenza at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure. (wikipedia.org)
  • adult
  • The diagnostic criteria were developed in pediatric populations and have not been validated for adult HLH patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • Determine
  • citation needed] In order to determine if the patient is afflicted with paraneoplastic pemphigus, several tests may be performed. (wikipedia.org)
