  • Thomas and his wife and research partner Dottie Thomas developed bone marrow transplantation as a treatment for leukemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Led by Dr. Huisheng Ai and his medical team at MST International Clinic for Leukemia in the 307th Hospital of Chinese People's Liberation Army located in Beijing, multicenter collaborative study on Microtransplantation has started since 2013 in 9 authoritative blood institutes from China, Duke University and Keck School of Medicine-University of Southern California in United States, University of Sydney in Australia and University of Montreal in Canada.

  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a type of cancer in which the bone marrow makes too many lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell). (wikipedia.org)
  • 2005 Treatment of Jining serious radiation accidents and extremely severe bone marrow and intestinal radiation 2006 Developed an original creativity of microtransplantation for the treatment of leukemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • She has co-authored five monographs, including "Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation clinical and basic," "Modern leukemia study," "Clinical and basic research of radiation sickness," and two more books. (wikipedia.org)
  • Absent these causes, patients were diagnosed in the World Health Organization's classification as having either 1) Chronic eosinophilic leukemia, not otherwise specified, (CEL-NOS) if blood or bone marrow blast cells exceeded 2% or 5% of total nucleated cells, respectively, and other criteria were met or 2) idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) if there was evidence of eosinophil-induced tissue damage but no criteria indicating chronic eosinophilic leukemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) is a serious chronic leukemia (cancer of the blood) that affects children mostly aged 4 and younger. (wikipedia.org)
  • GVHD
  • In other studies, Dr. Mielcarek is evaluating whether low-dose prednisone might be a less toxic yet effective treatment for GVHD and whether the use of carefully timed infusions of high-dose cyclophosphamide after transplantation is safe and effective at preventing GVHD. (seattlecca.org)
  • As more donor T cells are collected with peripheral blood than bone marrow, most studies have shown GVHD to be increased. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • He is best known for his research on chronic GVHD, the most common late effect in cancer survivors who underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantations as a form of treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • The United States Embassy in Zagreb, Croatia, granted Pavletic a United States Government stipend to spend six weeks at the University Hospital Centre Zagreb, Croatia, in 2013, to assist in the establishment of a multidisciplinary center for the treatment of chronic GVHD resulting from allogeneic stem cell transplantations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Possible mechanisms of the successful avoidance of GVHD include donor cell microchimerism, less-toxic cells processed prior to transplantation, and the preservation of host immune system that is capable of resisting the GVH alloresponse. (wikipedia.org)
  • Aplastic Anemia
  • Allogeneic BMT is also curable therapy for non-malignant diseases that affect blood cells, including aplastic anemia and other autoimmune disorders, as well as inherited diseases such as hemoglobinopathies and immunodeficiencies. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • grafts
  • While peripheral blood grafts may seem to be logistically easier to collect, as a bone marrow harvest requires multiple needle puncture in the pelvic bone in an operating room under anesthesia, it requires five days of growth factor injections and 6-12 hours on an apheresis machine. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)

  • treatment
  • In some patients in whom bone marrow transplantation has cured thalassemia, cirrhosis may be reversible after iron removal treatment. (annals.org)
  • The transplantation of bone marrow has also been conducted as a treatment option. (wikipedia.org)
  • Formerly, the only treatment option that offered relapsed bone marrow transplant patients hope of a cure was another bone marrow transplant. (wikipedia.org)
