  • The primary purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of performing bilateral orthotopic lung transplantation (BOLT) followed by cadaveric, partially HLA-matched CD3+/CD19+-depleted hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) from the same donor for patients with primary immunodeficiency diseases (PID) and end-stage lung disease.

  • To the editor: In the September 1969 A NNALS Welch and associates make a significant contribution to the antitrypsin literature with the finding of no significant difference in the frequency of "heterozygote" antitrypsin deficiency among healthy persons versus patients with lung disease.

  • IgG subclass deficiency is a type of primary immunodeficiency where subclasses of IgG are deficient leading to recurrent infections. (pediatriconcall.com)
  • Thus deficiency of certain IgG subclass renders the individual susceptible to certain kind of infections. (pediatriconcall.com)
  • Children with IgG subclass deficiency tend to have recurrent ear infections, sinusitis, bronchitis and pneumonia. (pediatriconcall.com)
  • As a result of this defect, patients with CGD get more infections, and they also get too many immune cells forming "knots" called granulomas, hence the name of the disease. (primaryimmune.org)
