• therapy
  • Consolidation therapy followed by stem cell rescue repeats every 28 days for 3 courses (C) and 3D-CRT to the brain (and the spine if needed) 5 days a week for 5-6 weeks (R), the order of which depends on patient age, in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Procedure
  • Determine the safety of temporarily discontinuing treatment with imatinib mesylate and using G-CSF during the harvesting procedure, in terms of the percentage of Philadelphia chromosome (Ph)-positive cells before and after stem cell harvest, in these patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • immune
  • Autoimmune hemolytic anemia or pure red cell aplasia, AIHA: Hemolytic anemia Hemoglobin less than 10.0 g/dL without transfusion Hemolysis as evidenced by both: Sustained reticulocytosis (greater than 125,000/mm3) without evidence of active bleeding or increasing hemoglobin Laboratory evidence of hemolysis Positive direct antiglobulin test or equivalent immune adherence test No evidence for paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria Negative Ham's test and sucrose hemolysis.
