Neoplasms located in the bone marrow. They are differentiated from neoplasms composed of bone marrow cells, such as MULTIPLE MYELOMA. Most bone marrow neoplasms are metastatic.
The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
Cells contained in the bone marrow including fat cells (see ADIPOCYTES); STROMAL CELLS; MEGAKARYOCYTES; and the immediate precursors of most blood cells.
A common neoplasm of early childhood arising from neural crest cells in the sympathetic nervous system, and characterized by diverse clinical behavior, ranging from spontaneous remission to rapid metastatic progression and death. This tumor is the most common intraabdominal malignancy of childhood, but it may also arise from thorax, neck, or rarely occur in the central nervous system. Histologic features include uniform round cells with hyperchromatic nuclei arranged in nests and separated by fibrovascular septa. Neuroblastomas may be associated with the opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2099-2101; Curr Opin Oncol 1998 Jan;10(1):43-51)
The transference of BONE MARROW from one human or animal to another for a variety of purposes including HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION or MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
A specialized CONNECTIVE TISSUE that is the main constituent of the SKELETON. The principle cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.
The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.
Removal of bone marrow and evaluation of its histologic picture.
Progenitor cells from which all blood cells derive.
The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter.

Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting. Other measurable optical parameters include light absorption and light scattering, the latter being applicable to the measurement of cell size, shape, density, granularity, and stain uptake.
A progressive, malignant disease of the blood-forming organs, characterized by distorted proliferation and development of leukocytes and their precursors in the blood and bone marrow. Leukemias were originally termed acute or chronic based on life expectancy but now are classified according to cellular maturity.

Longevity, stress response, and cancer in aging telomerase-deficient mice. (1/551)

Telomere maintenance is thought to play a role in signaling cellular senescence; however, a link with organismal aging processes has not been established. The telomerase null mouse provides an opportunity to understand the effects associated with critical telomere shortening at the organismal level. We studied a variety of physiological processes in an aging cohort of mTR-/- mice. Loss of telomere function did not elicit a full spectrum of classical pathophysiological symptoms of aging. However, age-dependent telomere shortening and accompanying genetic instability were associated with shortened life span as well as a reduced capacity to respond to stresses such as wound healing and hematopoietic ablation. In addition, we found an increased incidence of spontaneous malignancies. These findings demonstrate a critical role for telomere length in the overall fitness, reserve, and well being of the aging organism.  (+info)

Phase I study of 90Y-labeled B72.3 intraperitoneal administration in patients with ovarian cancer: effect of dose and EDTA coadministration on pharmacokinetics and toxicity. (2/551)

The tumor-associated glycoprotein 72 (TAG-72) antigen is present on a high percentage of tumor types including ovarian carcinomas. Antibody B72.3 is a murine monoclonal recognizing the surface domain of the TAG-72 antigen and has been widely used in human clinical trials. After our initial encouraging studies (M. G. Rosenblum et al., J. Natl. Cancer Inst., 83: 1629-1636, 1991) of tissue disposition, metabolism, and pharmacokinetics in 9 patients with ovarian cancer, we designed an escalating dose, multi-arm Phase I study of 90Y-labeled B72.3 i.p. administration. In the first arm of the study, patients (3 pts/dose level) received an i.p. infusion of either 2 or 10 mg of B72.3 labeled with either 1, 10, 15, or 25 mCi of 90Y. Pharmacokinetic studies demonstrated that concentrations of 90Y-labeled B72.3 persist in peritoneal fluid with half-lives >24 h after i.p. administration. In addition, 90Y-labeled B72.3 was absorbed rapidly into the plasma with peak levels achieved within 48 h, and levels declined slowly thereafter. Cumulative urinary excretion of the 90Y label was 10-20% of the administered dose which suggests significant whole-body retention of the radiolabel. Biopsy specimens of bone and marrow obtained at 72 h after administration demonstrated significant content of the label in bone (0.015% of the dose/g) with relatively little in marrow (0.005% of the dose/g). The maximal tolerated dose was determined to be 10 mCi because of hematological toxicity and platelet suppression. This typically occurred on the 29th day after administration and was thought to be a consequence of the irradiation of the marrow from the bony deposition of the radiolabel. In an effort to suppress the bone uptake of 90Y, patients were treated with a continuous i.v. infusion of EDTA (25 mg/kg/12 h x 6) infused immediately before i.p. administration of the radiolabeled antibody. Patients (3 pts/dose level) were treated with doses of 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, or 45 mCi of 90Y-labeled B72.3 for a total of 38 patients. EDTA administration resulted in significant myeloprotection, which allowed escalation to the maximal tolerated dose of 40 mCi. Dose-limiting toxicity was thrombocytopenia and neutropenia. Studies of plasma and peritoneal fluid pharmacokinetics demonstrate no changes compared with patients without EDTA pretreatment. Cumulative urinary excretion of the radiolabel was not increased in patients pretreated with EDTA compared with the untreated group. However, analysis of biopsy specimens of bone and marrow demonstrated that bone and marrow content of the 90Y label was 15-fold lower (<0.001% injected dose/g) than a companion group without EDTA. Four responses were noted in patients who received 15-30 mCi of 90Y-labeled B72.3 with response durations of 1-12 months. These results demonstrate the myeloprotective ability of EDTA, which allows safe i.p. administration of higher doses of 90Y-labeled B72.3 and, therefore, clearly warrant an expanded Phase II trial in patients with minimal residual disease after standard chemotherapy or for the palliation of refractory ascites.  (+info)

Double-blind randomized study on the myeloprotective effect of melatonin in combination with carboplatin and etoposide in advanced lung cancer. (3/551)

A significant myeloprotective effect of melatonin in mice treated with etoposide, cyclophosphamide or carboplatin has been reported. The present study was designed to evaluate if the same effect could be observed in patients receiving chemotherapy. Twenty previously untreated patients with inoperable lung cancer received two cycles of carboplatin (given at area under the curve 5 by the Calvert formula) on day 1 and etoposide (150 mg m(-2) i.v.) on days 1-3 every 4 weeks. Melatonin 40 mg or placebo (double-blind) was given orally in the evening for 21 consecutive days, starting 2 days before chemotherapy. Patients were randomized to receive melatonin either with the first or the second cycle. Complete blood cell count with differential was done three times per week for 3 weeks. The median age of the cohort was 60 years (range 42-69), 16 patients had non-small cell and four patients small-cell lung cancer, 12 stage III and eight stage IV disease. In a multivariate analysis including age, sex, diagnosis, stage, performance status, doses of carboplatin and etoposide, and concomitant treatment with melatonin or placebo, the haematological parameters--depth and duration of toxicity for haemoglobin, platelets and neutrophils (ANC)--were not significantly different between cycles with/without melatonin. The mean ANC nadir and the mean number of days with ANC < 0.5 x 10(9) l(-1) were 0.5 x 10(9) l(-1) and 2.5 days, respectively, with/without melatonin. We concluded that, in patients with lung cancer, melatonin given orally at a dose of 40 mg per day for 21 days in the evening, does not protect against the myelotoxic effect of carboplatin and etoposide.  (+info)

Magnetic resonance imaging of the wrist in early rheumatoid arthritis reveals progression of erosions despite clinical improvement. (4/551)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the progression of joint damage in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the wrist and determine whether this technique can be used to predict prognosis. METHODS: An inception cohort of 42 early patients has been followed up prospectively for one year. Gadolinium enhanced MRI scans of the dominant wrist were obtained at baseline and one year and scored for synovitis, tendonitis, bone marrow oedema, and erosions. Plain radiographs were performed concurrently and scored for erosions. Patients were assessed clinically for disease activity and HLA-DRB1 genotyping was performed. RESULTS: At one year, MRI erosions were found in 74% of patients (31 of 42) compared with 45% at baseline. Twelve patients (28.6%) had radiographic erosions at one year. The total MRI score and MRI erosion score increased significantly from baseline to one year despite falls in clinical measures of inflammation including erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C reactive protein (CRP), and swollen joint count (p < 0.01 for all). Baseline findings that predicted carpal MRI erosions at one year included a total MRI score of 6 or greater (sensitivity: 93.3%, specificity 81.8%, positive predictive value 93.3%, p = 0.000007), MRI bone oedema (OR = 6.47, p < 0.001), MRI synovitis (OR = 2.14, p = 0.003), and pain score (p = 0.01). Radiological erosions at one year were predicted by a total MRI score at baseline of greater than 13 (OR = 12.4, p = 0.002), the presence of MRI erosions (OR = 11.6, p = 0.005), and the ESR (p = 0.02). If MRI erosions were absent at baseline and the total MRI score was low, radiological erosions were highly unlikely to develop by one year (negative predictive value 0.91 and 0.92 respectively). No association was found between the shared epitope and erosions on MRI (p = 0.4) or radiography (p = 1.0) at one year. CONCLUSIONS: MRI scans of the dominant wrist are useful in predicting MRI and radiological erosions in early RA and may indicate the patients that should be managed aggressively. Discordance has been demonstrated between clinical improvement and progression of MRI erosion scores.  (+info)

Hematopoietic damage prior to PBSCT and its influence on hematopoietic recovery. (5/551)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Patients with malignancies receive chemotherapy to induce tumor remission which could damage hematopoiesis and adversely influence hematopoietic reconstitution after transplantation. In the present study we used a long-term culture (LTBMC) system and clonogenic assays to evaluate the marrow damage in patients selected to receive peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT). DESIGN AND METHODS: Thirty-five patients - 20 with breast cancer (BC), 9 with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and 6 with Hodgkin's disease (HD) - were included. Bone marrow aspiration was performed one day prior to the initiation of the conditioning therapy. CFU-GM were cultured in methylcellulose with PHA-LCM. Delta assays of plastic adherent progenitor cells (PD) were performed according to Gordon's method. LTBMC were established for 5 weeks. RESULTS: There were fewer CFU-GM from all patient groups than from normal BM (p<0.05). In contrast, the number of immature progenitor cells (PD) was not decreased. The total number of CFU-GM produced by LTBMC patients was significantly reduced (p<0.05). The adherent layer from patients was often qualitatively different. In order to know whether the hematopoietic damage could affect hematopoietic reconstitution, we correlated culture data with time taken to reach peripheral cell counts. A negative correlation (r= - 0.71) was found between percentage of stromal layer and time taken to reach 20x10(9) platelets/L (tplat= 20x3-0.08% stromal layer). INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: We can conclude that prior to PBSCT, hematopoietic function is impaired at both the level of committed progenitor cells and that of BM stroma. This damage could influence platelet recovery.  (+info)

First-line high-dose sequential chemotherapy with rG-CSF and repeated blood stem cell transplantation in untreated inflammatory breast cancer: toxicity and response (PEGASE 02 trial). (6/551)

Despite the generalization of induction chemotherapy and a better outcome for chemosensitive diseases, the prognosis of inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is still poor. In this work, we evaluate response and toxicity of high-dose sequential chemotherapy with repeated blood stem cell (BSC) transplantation administered as initial treatment in 100 women with non-metastatic IBC. Ninety-five patients (five patients were evaluated as non-eligible) of median age 46 years (range 26-56) received four cycles of chemotherapy associating: cyclophosphamide (C) 6 g m(-2) - doxorubicin (D) 75 mg m(-2) cycle 1, C: 3 g m(-2) - D: 75 mg m(-2) cycle 2, C: 3 g m(-2) - D: 75 mg m(-2) - 5 FU 2500 mg m(-2) cycle 3 and 4. BSC were collected after cycle 1 or 2 and reinfused after cycle 3 and 4. rG-CSF was administered after the four cycles. Mastectomy and radiotherapy were planned after chemotherapy completion. Pathological response was considered as the first end point of this trial. A total of 366 cycles of chemotherapy were administered. Eighty-seven patients completed the four cycles and relative dose intensity was respectively 0.97 (range 0.4-1.04) and 0.96 (range 0.25-1.05) for C and D. Main toxicity was haematological with febrile neutropenia ranging from 26% to 51% of cycles; one death occurred during aplasia. Clinical response rate was 90% +/- 6%. Eighty-six patients underwent mastectomy in a median of 3.5 months (range 3-9) after the first cycle of chemotherapy; pathological complete response rate in breast was 32% +/- 10%. All patients were eligible to receive additional radiotherapy. High-dose chemotherapy with repeated BSC transplantation is feasible with acceptable toxicity in IBC. Pathological response rate is encouraging but has to be confirmed by final outcome.  (+info)

Ticlopidine and clopidogrel. (7/551)

The thienopyridines ticlopidine and clopidogrel are inhibitors of platelet function in vivo. Their mode of action has not been defined, but it appears that they require conversion to as yet unidentified metabolites that are noncompetitive antagonists of the platelet ADP receptor. Inhibition of platelet aggregation with these compounds is delayed until 24 to 48 hours after administration. Maximum inhibition occurs after 3 to 5 days, and recovery is slow after drug withdrawal. Ticlopidine is effective in preventing cardiovascular events in cerebrovascular, cardiovascular, and peripheral vascular disease, with an efficacy that is similar to aspirin. However, its use is associated with significant and sometimes fatal adverse reactions, specifically neutropenia and bone marrow aplasia. Gastrointestinal side effects and skin rashes are common and result in discontinuation of therapy in up to 10% of patients. Clopidogrel is at least as effective as aspirin in preventing cardiovascular events in patients with a history of vascular disease. It appears to be safer than ticlopidine, although its efficacy in acute coronary syndromes or post-coronary-stent insertion has not been reported. Important outstanding issues are whether clopidogrel adds to the benefit of aspirin and whether the combination of these agents is safe. If so, this combination may become the standard for antithrombotic therapy in cardiovascular disease.  (+info)

Measurement of vitamin B12-binding proteins of plasma. II. Interpretation of patterns in disease. (8/551)

The technique described in the preceding paper was applied to 12 abnormal sera selected for their increase in one or more B12-binding proteins. Even in the presence of large amounts of R-type binder, the ammonium sulfate technique gave a reliable separation of R binding proteins from TC II. Measurement of the TC II in abnormal sera gave results identical to those obtained by the more standard gel filtration. The R binders of four subjects with myeloproliferative disease were further separated into alpha2-R and alpha1-R. The pattern of B12 binding of polycythemia vera (PV) was an exaggeration of the normal pattern. Binding to alpha2-R was three to four times that to alpha1-R, although the total amounts bound to both were increased. In chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), both alpha2-R and alpha1-R were also increased, but in contrast to binding in normal sera, alpha1-R predominated. In order to interpret the findings, either whole serum R or alpha1-R and alpha2-R from patients with myeloproliferative disease were subject to isoelectric focusing. Alpha2-R consisted pricipally of components isoelectric at pH 2.9, 3.0, and 3.1. These components were present in only minor amounts in normal serum and were somewhat increased in the serum of PV. These components were very much increased in the serum of CML and predominated. Alpha2-R consisted of those components isoelectric at pH 3.4,3.6, and 4.0. These components predominated in the unsaturated binding capacity of normal sera and that of PV. It was concluded that the division of plasma R binders into alpha1-R and alpha1-R by the technique described provided information useful in the study of myeloproliferative diseases.  (+info)

Abstract. Patients with inherited bone marrow failure syndromes (IBMFSs) classically present with specific patterns of cytopenias along with congenital anomali
Bone marrow failure is a general term covering many diseases. Bone marrow, the sponge-like tissue found inside bones, contains blood-forming stem cells that develop into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Disorders affecting the stem cells can, in turn, lead to bone marrow failure-rare, potentially life-threatening diseases in which the bone marrow stops functioning or produces abnormal blood cells. These diseases are classified into two major categories: acquired bone marrow failure and inherited bone marrow failure. Acquired bone marrow failure may be caused by a variety of factors including exposure to certain chemicals, environmental toxins, viruses, or by autoimmune responses. Acquired bone marrow failure diseases include aplastic anemia, myelodysplasia, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria and pure red cell aplasia. Inherited forms of bone marrow failure arise from specific alterations or abnormalities of genes. The most common inherited bone marrow failure disorders include ...
The aim of this study is to describe the association of bone marrow lesions (BMLs) present on two different MRI sequences with clinical outcomes, cartilage defect progression, cartilage volume loss over 2.7 years, and total knee replacement (TKR) over 13.3 years. 394 participants (50-80 years) were assessed at baseline and 2.7 years. BML presence at baseline was scored on T1-weighted fat-suppressed 3D gradient-recalled acquisition (T1) and T2-weighted fat-suppressed 2D fast spin-echo (T2) sequences. Knee pain, function, and stiffness were assessed using WOMAC. Cartilage volume and defects were assessed using validated methods. Incident TKR was determined by data linkage. BMLs were mostly present on both MRI sequences (86%). BMLs present on T2, T1, and both sequences were associated with greater knee pain and functional limitation (odds ratio = 1.49 to 1.70; all p p p p p , 0.05). BMLs present on T2, T1, and both sequences were strongly associated with incident TKR. BMLs can be assessed on either ...
As far as we know, this study provides the first detailed longitudinal data from a large sample describing the natural history of individual BMLs in articular subregions, as well as at the level of the knee as a whole, and relates different types of longitudinal change in individual BMLs to the risk of cartilage loss in the same subregion of the articular surface. We found that over 30 months a substantial proportion of existing BMLs decreased in size (many resolving completely) while increase in size, including development of new BMLs, was also common. Most knees with prevalent BMLs at baseline showed either no change or changes in only one direction (increase or decrease), but a smaller proportion of knees simultaneously displayed combinations of stable, increasing and decreasing BMLs. In comparison with subregions with BMLs that were stable during the study, the risk of cartilage loss was substantially increased for enlarging or new BMLs. The risk of cartilage loss was substantially decreased ...
Bone marrow suppression also known as myelotoxicity or myelosuppression, is the decrease in production of cells responsible for providing immunity (leukocytes), carrying oxygen (erythrocytes), and/or those responsible for normal blood clotting (thrombocytes). Bone marrow suppression is a serious side effect of chemotherapy and certain drugs affecting the immune system such as azathioprine. The risk is especially high in cytotoxic chemotherapy for leukemia. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), in some rare instances, may also cause bone marrow suppression. The decrease in blood cell counts does not occur right at the start of chemotherapy because the drugs do not destroy the cells already in the bloodstream (these are not dividing rapidly). Instead, the drugs affect new blood cells that are being made by the bone marrow. When myelosuppression is severe, it is called myeloablation. Many other drugs including common antibiotics may cause bone marrow suppression. Unlike chemotherapy the ...
article{758a50e9-9c82-4c95-9cff-accfd994939d, abstract = {Objective: To discuss terminology, radiological differential diagnoses and significance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-detected subchondral bone marrow lesions (BMLs) of the knee joint. Methods: An overview of the published literature is presented. In addition, the radiological appearance and differential diagnosis of subchondral signal alterations of the knee joint are discussed based on expert consensus. A recommendation for terminology is provided and the relevance of these imaging findings for osteoarthritis (OA) research is emphasized. Results: A multitude of differential diagnoses of subchondral BMLs may present with a similar aspect and signal characteristics. For this reason it is crucial to clearly and specifically define the type of BML that is being assessed and to use terminology that is appropriate to the condition and the pathology. In light of the currently used terminology, supported by histology, it seems appropriate ...
Mayo Clinic researchers have found that azathioprine, a drug commonly used to treat autoimmune disease, may increase the risk of myeloid neoplasms. Myeloid neoplasms include a spectrum of potentially life-threatening bone marrow disorders, such as myelodysplastic syndromes and acute myeloid leukemia. The results are published in JAMA Oncology.
Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes (IBMFSs) such as Fanconi Anemia (FA) and Shwachman-Diamond syndrome (SDS) feature progressive cytopenia and a risk of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Using deep phenotypic analysis of early progenitors in FA/SDS bone marrow samples we revealed selective survival of progenitors that phenotypically resembled granulocyte-monocyte progenitors (GMP). Whole exome and targeted sequencing of GMP-like cells in leukemia-free patients revealed a higher mutation load than in healthy controls and molecular changes that are characteristic of AML: increased G,A/C,T variants, decreased A,G/T,C variants, increased trinucleotide mutations at Xp(C,T)pT and decreased mutation rates at Xp(C,T)pG sites compared to other Xp(C,T)pX sites and enrichment for Cancer signature 1 (X indicates any nucleotide). Potential pre-leukemic targets in the GMP-like cells from FA/SDS patients included SYNE1, DST, HUWE1, LRP2, NOTCH2 and TP53. Serial analysis of GMPs from a SDS patient, who ...

There are no data on the incidence of TBMO in children. However, it seems to be a relatively rare cause of foot and ankle pain also in adults.5 In another study of 1123 patients referred for MRI imaging of the foot, 72 patients with oedema-like bone marrow abnormalities were registered.6. The aetiology of TBMO is unknown but it may be associated with local vascular disturbances, microtrauma, bone contusion, or altered biomechanics.6,7 The x ray examination is usually either normal or shows localised osteoporosis, as in our case. However, osteoporosis is a rare finding in bone biopsies.8 Histological studies have suggested ischaemic origin.9. The definitive diagnosis of TBMO is made by MRI. Bone contusion and bone bruises normally manifest as focal areas of low signal intensity in T1 weighted images and increased signal intensity in T2 weighted images, whereas bone oedema shows diffuse changes of intensity.1 In our patient marked bone marrow oedema was seen in both feet and hands.. Because of the ...
Bone marrow lesions (BMLs) are useful diagnostic and prognostic markers in knee osteoarthritis (OA), but what they represent at the tissue level remains unclear. The aim of this study was to provide comprehensive tissue characterization of BMLs detected using two specific MRI sequences. Tibial plateaus were obtained from 60 patients (29 females, 31 males), undergoing knee arthroplasty for OA. To identify BMLs, MRI was performed ex vivo using T1 and PDFS-weighted sequences. Multi-modal tissue level analyses of the osteochondral unit (OCU) were performed, including cartilage volume measurement, OARSI grading, micro-CT analysis of bone microstructure, routine histopathological assessment and quantitation of bone turnover indices. BMLs were detected in 74 % of tibial plateaus, the remainder comprising a No BML group. Of all BMLs, 59 % were designated BML 1 (detected only by PDFS) and 41 % were designated BML 2 (detected by both PDFS + T1). The presence of a BML was related to degeneration of the OCU,
The aetiology and pathogenesis of primary bone marrow oedema syndrome (BMES) remain unclear. This retrospective cross-sectional study in a large cohort of patients with BMES was performed to characterise the overall skeletal status and turnover in patients with BMES, with the aim of identifying risk factors for this disease. Patients who were diagnosed with BMES on the basis of clinical and radiological (magnetic resonance imaging) findings in our outpatient clinic were identified retrospectively. Patient history, co-existing metabolic disorders, bone metabolism parameters (serum calcium, phosphate, 25-OH-D3, bone-specific alkaline phosphatase, parathyroid hormone, and osteocalcin, and urinary deoxypyridinoline) and bone mineral density (as measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) were extracted from the medical records. Patients with secondary causes for BMES were excluded from the study. Of the 171 patients, 65 were identified without secondary cause for BMES. Of the 65 patients, 61.5% were

London, Jan 17 (IANS) Bone marrow lesions (BMLs) are likely to help predict a swiftly progressing joint disease, says a study. The research shows lesions - seen on MRI scans as regions of bone beneath the cartilage with ill-defined high signal - can help identify individuals who are more likely to suffer from the rapidly progressing osteoarthritis.. Osteoarthritis - the most common type of arthritis in the UK - can cause the joints to become painful and stiff.. Almost any joint can be affected, but it most often causes problems in the knees, hips, and small joints of the hands. It can progress at varying speeds.. Osteoarthritis causes a significant burden to individuals and the healthcare system as a whole, said Mark Edwards, Clinical Lecturer at the University of Southampton in UK.. Individuals with BMLs lose the space within the joint at a rate that is 0.10 mm per year faster than those without BMLs, the findings showed.. The SEKOIA study, a major international osteoarthritis ...

Gleostine® (lomustine) should be administered under the supervision of a qualified physician experienced in the use of cancer chemotherapeutic agents.. Bone marrow suppression, notably thrombocytopenia and leukopenia, which may contribute to bleeding and overwhelming infections in an already compromised patient, is the most common and severe of the toxic effects of Gleostine® (see WARNINGS and ADVERSE REACTIONS).. Since the major toxicity is delayed bone marrow suppression, blood counts should be monitored weekly for at least 6 weeks after a dose (see ADVERSE REACTIONS). At the recommended dosage, courses of Gleostine® should not be given more frequently than every 6 weeks.. The bone marrow toxicity of Gleostine® is cumulative and therefore dosage adjustment must be considered on the basis of nadir blood counts from prior dose (see dosage adjustment table under DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION). more ,, ...

Inherited bone marrow failure (IBMF) syndromes are a heterogeneous group of rare hematological disorders characterized by the impairment of hematopoiesis, which harbor specific clinical presentations and pathogenic mechanisms. Some of these syndromes may progress through clonal evolution, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Most prominent are failures of DNA repair such as Fanconi Anemia and much rarer failure of ribosomal apparatus, e.g., Diamond Blackfan Anemia or...
Review question We evaluated the evidence about whether giving agents that can replace, or reduce platelet transfusion (artificial platelets, platelet-poor plasma, fibrinogen concentrate, recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa), recombinant factor XIII (rFXIII), recombinant interleukin (rIL)6 or rIL11, desmopressin (DDAVP), thrombopoietin (TPO) mimetics or antifibrinolytic drugs), to people with a low platelet count prevents bleeding and whether these alternative agents are associated with side effects. Our target population was people with bone marrow disorders which prevent them from producing enough platelets. We excluded people undergoing intensive chemotherapy or stem cell transplantation.. Background People with low platelet counts due to bone marrow disorders are vulnerable to bleeding which may be severe or life-threatening. In order to treat, or prevent bleeding, they are often given platelet transfusions. However, platelet transfusions are associated with risks such as infection and ...
Our data indicate that UCBT is an excellent option for children with hereditary bone marrow failure syndromes when the donor is an HLA-matched sibling donor. Our results are in agreement with those of a previously published analysis which compared outcome of patients undergoing HLA-identical sibling UCBT with that of HLA-identical sibling bone marrow transplant recipients and showed similar overall survival in children with malignant and non-malignant diseases.16 Banks of related cord blood have been established; they are not, however, sufficiently developed despite the excellent results observed not only in marrow failure but also in other hereditary disorders such as hemoglobinopathies, metabolic disorders and congenital immune deficiencies.17,18 Another factor in favor of freezing cord blood cells from an HLA-identical sibling is the absence of risk for the donor.. An important observation is that the risk of graft failure after unrelated UCBT was high in this cohort of patients. The risk of ...
Here, we reported the case of a patient who experienced persistent bone marrow necrosis after ATRA and IDA induction therapy for APL, despite cessation of ATRA. Although ATRA-induced bone marrow necrosis has been documented,18-20 this case is notable in that our patient demonstrated continual bone marrow necrosis several months subsequent to stopping ATRA therapy. It is interesting to note that the patient had evidence of hematopoietic recovery despite the necrotic effects of ATRA and shifting to ATO treatment.. Bone marrow necrosis is conjectured to result from poor blood supply to the marrow21 or increased oxygen demand of the marrow, as evidenced in necrosis of other tissue types. The most common cause of bone marrow necrosis is malignancy, in particular hematologic malignancy, including acute leukemia.18,21,22 It is reasonable to postulate that the APL by itself could have caused the bone marrow necrosis as evidenced in this patient23; however, one would have expected necrosis on the initial ...
The hypoproliferative anemias are normochromic, normocytic, or macrocytic and are characterized by a low reticulocyte count. Hypoproliferative anemia is also a prominent feature of hematologic diseases that are described as bone marrow failure states; these include aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), pure red cell aplasia (PRCA), and myelophthisis. Anemia in these disorders is often not a solitary or even the major hematologic finding. More frequent in bone marrow failure is pancytopenia: anemia, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia. Low blood counts in the marrow failure diseases result from deficient hematopoiesis, as distinguished from blood count depression due to peripheral destruction of red cells (hemolytic anemias), platelets (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura [ITP] or due to splenomegaly), and granulocytes (as in the immune leukopenias). Marrow damage and dysfunction also may be secondary to infection, inflammation, or cancer. ...
Assessing the pathology of the synovium, its thickening and increased vascularity through ultrasound and magnetic resonance examinations (more often an ultrasound study alone) is still considered a sensitive parameter in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and in monitoring of treatment efficacy. Magnetic resonance studies showed that, aside from the joint pannus, the subchondral bone tissue constitutes an essential element in the development of rheumatoid arthritis. Bone marrow edema correlates with inflammation severity, joint destruction, clinical signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, and thus is considered a predictor of rapid radiological progression of the disease. The newest studies reveal that bone marrow edema may be a more sensitive indicator of the response to therapy than appearance of the synovium. Bone marrow edema presents with increased signal in T2-weighted images, being most visible in fat saturation or IR sequences (STIR, TIRM). On the other hand, it is hypointense and ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Inherited SHQ1 mutations impair interaction with NAP57/dyskerin, a major target in dyskeratosis congenita. AU - Bizarro, Jonathan. AU - Meier, U. Thomas. PY - 2017/1/1. Y1 - 2017/1/1. N2 - Background: The inherited bone marrow failure syndrome dyskeratosis congenita (DC) is most frequently caused by mutations in DKC1 (MIM# 300126), the gene encoding NAP57 (aka dyskerin). The typically missense mutations modulate the interaction of NAP57 with its chaperone SHQ1, but no DC mutations have been identified in SHQ1 (MIM# 613663). Here, we report on two compound heterozygous mutations in SHQ1 in a patient with a severe neurological disorder including cerebellar degeneration. Methods: The SHQ1 mutations were identified by patient exome sequencing. The impact of the mutations was assessed in pulldown assays with recombinant NAP57. Results: The SHQ1 mutations were the only set of mutations consistent with an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. The mutations map to the SHQ1-NAP57 ...

Bone marrow oedema (BME) and avascular osteonecrosis (AVN) are disorders of unclear origin. Although there are numerous operative and non-operative treatments for AVN, pain management in patients with AVN remains challenging. Prostaglandins play an important role in inflammatory responses and cell differentiation. It is thought that prostaglandin I2 ([PGI2] or synonoma prostacyclin) and its analogues promote bone regeneration on a cellular or systemic level. The purpose of this study was to assess the curative and symptomatic efficacy of the prostacyclin analogue iloprost in BME and AVN patients. We are reporting on 50 patients (117 bones) affected by BME/AVN who were treated with iloprost. Pain levels before, during and 3 and 6 months after iloprost application were evaluated by a visual analogue scale (VAS). The short form(SF)-36 health survey served to judge general health status before and after treatment. Harris Hip Score (HHS) and Knee Society Score (KSS) were performed as functional scores and
Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes (IBMFSs) are a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by defective hematopoiesis, impaired stem cell function, and cancer susceptibility. Diagnosis of IBMFS presents a major challenge due to the large variety of associated phenotypes, and novel, clinically relevant biomarkers are urgently needed. Our study identified nuclear interaction partner of ALK (NIPA) as an IBMFS gene, as it is significantly downregulated in a distinct subset of myelodysplastic syndrome-type (MDS-type) refractory cytopenia in children. Mechanistically, we showed that NIPA is major player in the Fanconi anemia (FA) pathway, which binds FANCD2 and regulates its nuclear abundance, making it essential for a functional DNA repair/FA/BRCA pathway. In a knockout mouse model, Nipa deficiency led to major cell-intrinsic defects, including a premature aging phenotype, with accumulation of DNA damage in hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Induction of replication stress triggered a ...

Anemia, also spelt anaemia, is usually defined as a decrease in the amount of red blood cells (RBCs) or hemoglobin in the blood. It can also be defined as a lowered ability of the blood to carry oxygen. When anemia comes on slowly the symptoms are often vague and may include: feeling tired, weakness, shortness of breath or a poor ability to exercise. Anemia that comes on quickly often has greater symptoms which may include: confusion, feeling like one is going to pass out, loss of consciousness, or increased thirst. Anemia must be significant before a person becomes noticeably pale. Additional symptoms may occur depending on the underlying cause. ...

Shwachman syndrome is a rare genetic disorder with multiple and varied manifestations. The disorder is typically characterized by signs of insufficient absorption (malabsorption) of fats and other nutrients due to abnormal development of the pancreas (pancreatic insufficiency) and improper functioning of the bone marrow (bone marrow dysfunction), resulting in low levels of circulating blood cells (hematologic abnormalities). Additional characteristic findings may include short stature; abnormal bone development affecting the rib cage and/or bones in the arms and/or legs (metaphyseal dysostosis); and/or liver abnormalities.

Bone marrow failure syndromes (BMFS) are a group of disorders with complex pathophysiology characterized by a common phenotype of peripheral cytopenia and/or hypoplastic bone marrow. Understanding genetic factors contributing to the pathophysiology of BMFS has enabled the identification of causative genes and development of diagnostic tests. To date more than 40 mutations in genes involved in maintenance of genomic stability, DNA repair, ribosome and telomere biology have been identified. In addition, pathophysiological studies have provided insights into several biological pathways leading to the characterization of genotype/phenotype correlations as well as the development of diagnostic approaches and management strategies. Recent developments in bone marrow transplant techniques and the choice of conditioning regimens have helped improve transplant outcomes. However, current morbidity and mortality remain unacceptable underlining the need for further research in this area. Studies in mice ...

MEETING CHANGE TO VIRTUAL eSymposia: Hematopoiesis is a highly regulated and dynamic developmental process by which hematopoietic stem cells self-renew and differentiate to form all blood lineages. Disruption of hematopoiesis resulting from genetic, epigenetic, transcriptional, and/or post-translational defects or due to environmental stressors can result in benign or malignant hematologic disorders. Advances in model systems, genome-editing tools, single-cell analyses, and imaging technologies have provided insight into the molecular, cellular, and developmental basis of normal and malignant hematopoiesis. This Keystone Symposia conference brings together basic and translational researchers to discuss and debate emerging topics and recent advances on developmental hematopoiesis, adult stem cell self-renewal and stem cell niches, novel hematopoietic regulators, and the pathogenesis of bone marrow failure syndromes and leukemia.

Authors: Nurgalieva Z, Liu CC, Du XL. Title: Chemotherapy use and risk of bone marrow suppression in a large population-based cohort of older women with breast and ovarian cancer.. Journal: Med Oncol 28(3):716-25. Date: 2011 Sep. Abstract: We studied 65,521 women with breast cancer and 7,420 women with ovarian cancer aged ≥ 65 identified from the 16 areas of the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program linked with Medicare data during 1991-2002. Bone marrow toxicity associated with chemotherapy was defined using diagnosis codes from Medicare inpatient, outpatient and physician claims. The time to event Cox regression was utilized to estimate the risk of bone marrow toxicity. Use of anthracyclines, taxanes or platinums was associated with increased risks of short- (≤3 months) and long-term (>3 months) anemia and neutropenia in patients with breast cancer. Alkylating agents or antimetabolites were additional significant predictors of anemia in women with ovarian cancer. Patients who ...
Nearly all chemo medicines suppress the bone marrow. And that, in turn, causes a reduction in the number of blood cells. This raises the risk for anemia, infection, bleeding, and bruising. Heres what you need to know.
Immune-mediated aplastic anemia resembles other bone marrow disorders such as myelodysplastic syndrome, certain infections, and leukemia. Because treatment for aplastic anemia differs from management of other diseases affecting the bone marrow, it is critically important to distinguish between these disorders when a diagnosis of aplastic anemia is suspected. Therefore, children with persistently low blood counts should be evaluated by pediatric hematologists with expertise in diagnostics and treatment of these uncommon disorders ...
Radiation therapy is not currently used for treating MDS, or myelodysplastic syndromes. MDS is a term used to describe a group of diverse bone marrow disorders that can occur when the bone marrow does not produce enough healthy blood cells. Healthy bone marrow produces immature blood cells (stem cells or blasts) that normally develop into mature, fully functional red blood cells, white blood cells or platelets. MDS can interfere with blast development and cause blasts to accumulate in the bone marrow or shorten their life span, resulting in a shortage of healthy blood cells in circulation. Because the unhealthy cells circulate throughout the body and radiation therapy can only target one specific area at a time, radiation therapy is impractical for MDS treatment.. The renowned research team in the Malignant Hematology Program at Moffitt Cancer Center is continually evaluating promising new treatment options for MDS, such as the use of antibodies to deliver radioactive materials specifically to ...
Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) in childhood encompasses a diverse group of bone marrow disorders that share a common clonal defect of stem cells and that result in ineffective hematopoiesis with dysplastic changes in the marrow.

  • During what's known as allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, healthy bone marrow stem cells from a donor are transfused into a patient, replacing marrow that is either not working properly or has been destroyed by chemotherapy or radiation. (
  • This condition, known as GVHD, is often life-threatening and greatly limits the use of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. (
  • In the new work, a research team led by U-M faculty members Gary Glick and James Ferrara tested a compound called Bz-423 in several mouse models of bone marrow transplantation. (
  • The primary objectives of this study are to assess renal allograft tolerance (that is, the acceptance of the kidney without the need for anti-rejection therapy), assess anti-tumor response rates in multiple myeloma and AL amyloidosis, and assess complication rates for genetically (HLA) matched related donor combined bone marrow and kidney transplantation using a low dose total body irradiation based preparative regimen.

  • CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells preserve graft-versus-tumor activity while inhibiting graft-versus-host disease after bone marrow transplantation. (
  • Mature donor T cells cause graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), but they are also the main mediators of the beneficial graft-versus-tumor (GVT) activity of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. (
  • We have previously shown that donor-derived CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells inhibit lethal GVHD after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation across major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I and II barriers in mice. (
  • In addition to complications seen from exposure to chemotherapy and radiation, patients undergoing allogeneic transplantation can experience unique late effects secondary to graft versus host disease (GVHD) and autoimmunity. (
  • In a study from the United States, long-term survivors of pediatric bone marrow transplantation followed in the Bone Marrow Transplant Survivors Study were compared with survivors of childhood cancer treated without bone marrow transplant from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study. (
  • [ 2 , 8 ] Survivors of bone marrow transplantation were more likely to have a severe or life threatening condition (relative risk [RR] = 3.9), more than one chronic condition (RR = 2.6), functional impairment (RR=3.5), and activity limitations (RR = 5.8) than conventionally treated patients. (

  • In the nonhistocompatible bone marrow transplantation, failure of engraftment occurred in 11 patients. (
  • Lethal graft-versus-host disease after bone marrow transplantation across minor histocompatibility barriers in mice. (
  • The data provide no support for the view that chronic GVHD developing after bone marrow transplantation in man is the result of an attack by the progeny of the donor stem cells. (
  • 6 5 Stem cell transplantation is the only curative treatment in autoimmune diseases, as the non-malignant B-lymphocytes underlying many of these diseases are often difficult to eradicate with non-myeloablative chemotherapy. (
  • We report a case of a woman with celiac disease who underwent stem cell transplantation for acute leukemia. (

  • Transplantation of nonmicroencapsulated rat bone marrow derived mesenchymal stromal cells improved urodynamic pressure by 42 days after treatment more markedly than microencapsulated cells. (
  • Background-Recent reports have shown a probable association between certain HLA antigens and acute graft versus host disease (GVHD) after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). (
  • Methods-Medical records of 162 patients who had undergone allogeneic BMT from an HLA-identical sibling in the Hematology, Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation Center of Shariati Hospital in Tehran between 1991 and 1999, were studied and analyzed by univariate and multivariate analyses. (
  • Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from an human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-identical donor is currently the only proven curative treatment for chronic granulomatous disease. (
  • Therefore, we performed in vitro fertilization and preimplantation HLA matching combined with female sexing for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in chronic granulomatous disease. (
  • Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation after in vitro fertilization and combined female sexing and HLA matching offers a new and relatively rapid therapeutic option for patients with X-linked primary immunodeficiency such as chronic granulomatous disease who need hematopoietic stem cell transplantation but lack an HLA-genoidentical donor.

  • Graft-versus-Host disease (GVHD) often occurs after allogeneic bone marrow transplants (BMT). (
  • In GVHD, the donor's bone marrow attacks the patient's organs and tissues, making them less able to function well. (
  • GVHD can be a minor, short-term problem or a serious, life-threatening disease. (
  • Acute GVHD most often occurs in the first 100 days after a bone marrow transplant. (
  • [ 2 ] Because the same mechanism is involved in graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), the incidence of GVHD could be as high as 60% in these patients. (
  • The incidence of acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is similar with the two methods. (
  • The number of patient who develop acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). (
  • The number of patient who develop chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). (
  • This review focuses on the bone marrow as a target of GvHD, the factors that contribute to myelosuppression, and the possible therapeutic approaches. (
  • Besides infection, graft versus host disease (GvHD) remains the main cause of morbidity and mortality after allogeneic HSCT. (
  • Currently, allogeneic bone marrow transplant recipients are given drugs that suppress the immune system in order to lessen the effects of GVHD. (
  • The researchers turned their attention to GVHD because it's an important medical problem and also because in animal models, disease-causing cells can easily be distinguished from normal cells. (
  • Bz-423 provides a much higher level of selectivity for silencing disease-causing cells than is seen with the immunosuppressive drugs typically used for diseases like GVHD," Glick said. (
  • In the experiments described in the paper, Bz-423 arrested GVHD in mice by selectively killing disease-causing T cells, with no adverse effects on normal cells or bone marrow transplant success. (
  • Additionally, it is believed that standard therapy may be associated with a higher risk of a complication called graft versus host disease (GVHD) where the new donor cells attack the recipient's normal body. (
  • Recently, less intense chemotherapy and radiation regimens have been employed (these are called reduced intensity regimens) which cause less injury and GVHD to patients, and thus, have allowed older and less healthy patients to undergo bone marrow transplant. (
  • In an effort to find new strategies to personalize treatment for pediatric patients, Seattle Children's has opened the first clinical trial applying next-generation T-cell receptor (TCR) sequencing and single-cell gene expression analysis to better understand how the immune system drives both inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in pediatric autoimmunity patients and graft-versus host disease (GVHD) in pediatric bone marrow transplant (BMT) patients. (
  • GVHD occurs when the T cells of newly transplanted bone marrow begin to attack a patient's tissues, including those of the skin, liver and intestine. (
  • Standard treatments aimed at suppressing or modulating the immune response are often ineffective in managing diseases like IBD and GVHD. (
  • PREDICT aims to bridge IBD and GVHD, shedding new light on the immunologic similarities they share and identifying the molecular causes of each patient's disease. (
  • Therefore, we analyzed three types of clinically relevant in vivo alloresponses: graft-vs-host disease (GVHD), allogeneic bone marrow (BM) graft rejection, and graft-vs-leukemia (GVL). (
  • Colon biopsies for evaluation of acute graft-versus-host disease (A-GVHD) in allogeneic bone marrow transplant patients. (
  • 2 However, all animals suffered from graft-vs-host disease (GVHD). (
  • CGVHD can occur following acute graft-versus-host-disease (aGVHD), can overlap with aGVHD, or occur without preceding acute GVHD (de novo cGVHD). (
  • ANN ARBOR, Mich. - A new test can guide treatment for patients with graft versus host disease (GVHD), an often life-threatening complication of bone marrow and stem cell transplants, according to research from the University of Michigan published in Lancet Haematology this month. (
  • Around half of patients who get a bone marrow transplant will develop GVHD, which can be lethal if it can't be controlled. (
  • The in vitro removal of the GVHD-causing T-lymphocytes from donor marrow is one approach which could control this complication. (
  • Bone marrow from 23 consecutive donors was treated in vitro with CT-2 and complement, prior to infusion, as a potential means of controlling GVHD. (
  • In two situations, transfer of normal unsensitized bone marrow cells into heavily irradiated H-2-identical allogeneic mice caused a high incidence of lethal chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), i.e. mortality occuring between days of 20 and 80 postirradiation. (
  • Removing mature T cells from the marrow with anti-Thy 1.2 serum and complement before injection prevented GVHD. (
  • On the basis of adding purified T cells to T-cell-depleted marrow cells, it was concluded that contamination of the marrow with as few as 0.3% T cells was sufficient to cause a high incidence of lethal GVHD in certain situations. (
  • The results imply that mature T cells contaminating marrow inocula are probably the main cause of GVHD seen in the clinical situation. (
  • The incidence of grade II-III acute graft versus host disease (GvHD) and chronic GvHD was 29.2% and 16.7%, respectively. (
  • Bone marrow is the traditional source of stem cells for both autologous and homologous transplants. (
  • Doubling the low amount of total body radiation delivered to patients undergoing bone marrow transplants with donor cells that are only "half-matched" increased the rate of engraftment from only about 50 percent to nearly 100 percent, according to a new study by Johns Hopkins researchers. (
  • Bone marrow transplants are not just for patients with a perfectly matched donor. (
  • In the late 1980s, explain study leaders Javier Bolaños-Meade, M.D., associate professor of oncology at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, and Brodsky, researchers discovered that bone marrow transplants could potentially cure sickle cell disease , a condition with few effective treatments and one that typically kills patients in their 40s. (
  • Since finding a full match is difficult in this patient population-fewer than 15 percent have fully matched siblings free of the same genetic defect that causes sickle cell disease, and less than a quarter have full matches in unrelated registries-Johns Hopkins researchers developed a protocol, published in 2012, that allows patients to receive transplants from relatives who are only half-matched. (
  • Seeking to increase the odds of engraftment for these half-matches, Bolaños-Meade and his colleagues tested a new protocol for bone marrow transplants in patients with severe sickle cell disease and beta thalassemia, two related blood disorders known as hemoglobinopathies that are caused by defects in the same beta-globin gene. (
  • After their transplants, all received a dose of cyclophosphamide, a drug that has proved critical to avoiding a potentially deadly condition known as graft versus host disease that is particularly prevalent with half-matches. (
  • We have performed more than 1,000 half-matched bone marrow transplants, and our clinical studies have proved so successful, with safety and toxicity comparable to matched transplants, that half-identical transplants must be made available to more patients as a curative option. (
  • Emily Meier, MD, Director of the Sickle Cell Disease Program , discusses bone marrow transplants at Children's National and some of the complications of sickle cell disease. (
  • Bone marrow transplants are done to treat patients suffering from leukemia, and severe blood diseases such as thalassemias, aplastic anemia, and sickle cell anemia, as well as multiple myeloma and certain immune deficiency diseases. (
  • Manipal Hospital has the most advanced cancer care and treatment facilities to perform the most complex bone marrow transplants. (
  • Our centre of excellence in cancer care has excelled in the number of successful bone marrow transplants at over 8 lakh cases. (
  • Patients with fatal blood cancers like leukemia often need bone marrow or stem cell transplants to survive. (
  • We will try to make bone marrow transplants to treat EB a normal procedure," Prof. Liem told Vietweek Tuesday. (
  • Patients undergo total body irradiation on day 0, followed by allogeneic bone marrow transfusion. (
  • Isolated allogeneic bone marrow-derived mesenchymal cells engraft and stimulate growth in children with osteogenesis imperfecta: Implication for cell therapy of bone. (
  • Arm I: Patients receive allogeneic bone marrow that has been processed to produce a mononuclear cell preparation. (
  • Arm II: Patients receive unprocessed allogeneic bone marrow. (
  • A buccal swab can be used for human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing of bone marrow donors. (
  • Buccal swabs are typically obtained at the time of bone marrow registry enrollment for all potential donors. (
  • Donors are screened for transmittable diseases such as HIV , hepatitis, West Nile virus , syphilis , and human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV). (
  • However, certain donors with these diseases may still be considered for donation on a case-to-case basis. (
  • Until recently, it required bone marrow donors and recipients to fully match each other in a set of proteins known as human leukocyte antigens that are displayed on cells . (
  • However, this treatment has only been used sparingly since then-until recently, it required bone marrow donors and recipients to fully match each other in a set of proteins known as human leukocyte antigens that are displayed on cells. (
  • Despite the fact that the majority of bone marrow donors donate through peripheral collection, which is simply having their blood drawn, Joseph Adamson donated through bone marrow asperation, meaning it was taken directly from his bone. (
  • Results MSCs isolated from patients with Crohn's disease showed similar morphology, phenotype and growth potential compared to MSCs from healthy donors. (
  • In adults, bone marrow from matched sibling donors (n=123) had best graft- versus -host disease-free, relapse-free survival at 1- and 2-years, compared with peripheral blood stem cell from matched sibling donors (n=540) or other graft/donor types. (
  • In multivariate analysis, peripheral blood stem cells from matched sibling donors resulted in a 50% increased risk of events contributing to graft- versus -host disease-free, relapse-free survival at 1- and 2-years than bone marrow from matched sibling donors. (
  • As a secondary aim after successful engraftment with donor bone marrow, there is realistic hope for tolerating planned withdrawal of immunosuppression achieving eventual freedom from all immunosuppressive drugs and attaining a tolerant state. (
  • As in the previous protocol, all received doses of chemotherapy and total body irradiation to knock down their immune response to the donor bone marrow before transplant. (
  • The new donor bone marrow must precisely match the genetic makeup of the patient's own marrow. (
  • Donor bone marrow engraftment leads to kidney graft tolerance in animal models. (
  • Treatment of the donor bone marrow with lectins and erythrocyte-forming rosette depletion, anti-T-cell antisera or monoclonal antibodies are methods currently being tested to accomplish this. (
  • MDS syndromes are classified by how the cells in the bone marrow and blood smear look under the microscope. (
  • Leukemia, aplastic anemia and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are three types of bone marrow disorders that affect the production of blood cells and the bone marrow. (
  • Myeloid neoplasms include a spectrum of potentially life-threatening bone marrow disorders, such as myelodysplastic syndromes and acute myeloid leukemia. (
  • Detailed data on each patient's drug exposures, duration and disease characteristics were collected and compared to autoimmune patients without bone marrow disorders of myelodysplastic syndromes or acute myeloid leukemia. (
