Autologous transplantation of chemotherapy-purged PBSC collections from high-risk leukemia patients: a pilot study. (1/463)

We have recently demonstrated that the combination of the alkylating agent nitrogen mustard (NM) and etoposide (VP-16) is capable of eliminating, ex vivo, leukemic cells contaminating PBSC collections and this is associated with a significant recovery of primitive and committed hematopoietic progenitor cells. Based on these data a pilot study on autologous transplantation of NM/VP-16 purged PBSC for high-risk leukemic patients was recently initiated. Twelve patients (seven females and five males) with a median age of 46 years (range 18-57) have been treated. Two patients had acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) resistant to conventional induction treatment, four patients had secondary AML in I complete remission (CR), one patient was in II CR after failing a previous autologous BM transplantation, while two additional AML individuals were in I CR achieved after three or more cycles of induction treatment. Two patients with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in I CR and one patient with mantle cell lymphoma and leukemic dissemination were also included. Eight patients showed karyotypic abnormalities associated with a poor clinical outcome. The mobilizing regimens included cytosine arabinoside and mitoxantrone with (n = 6) or without fludarabine (n = 3) followed by subcutaneous administration of G-CSF (5 microg/kg/day until the completion of PBSC collection) and G-CSF alone (n = 3) (15 microg/kg/day). A median of two aphereses (range 1-3) allowed the collection of 7.2 x 10(8) TNC/kg (range 3.4-11.5), 5 x 10(6) CD34+ cells/kg (range 2.1-15.3) and 9.2 x 10(4) CFU-GM/kg (0.3-236). PBSC were treated with a constant dose of 20 microg of VP-16/ml and a median individual-adjusted dose (survival < or = 5% of steady-state BM CFU-GM) of NM of 0.7 microg/ml (range 0.25-1.25). Eleven patients were reinfused after busulfan (16 mg/kg) and Cy (120 mg/kg) conditioning with a median residual dose of 0.3 x 10(4) CFU-GM/kg (0-11.5). The median time to neutrophil engraftment (>0.5 x 10(9)/l) for evaluable patients was 25 days (range 12-59); the median time to platelet transfusion independence (>20 and >50 x 10(9)/l) was 40 days (18-95) and 69 days (29-235), respectively. Hospital discharge occurred at a median of 25 days (18-58) after stem cell reinfusion. Four individuals are alive in CR (n = 3) or with residual nodal disease (n = 1 lymphoma patient) with a follow-up of 32, 26, 3 and 14 months, respectively. Seven patients died due to disease progression or relapse (n = 5) or extrahematological transplant toxicity (n = 2). Our data suggest that pharmacological purging of leukapheresis collections of leukemic patients at high-risk of relapse is feasible and ex vivo treated cells reconstitute autologous hematopoiesis.  (+info)

A restrictive platelet transfusion policy allowing long-term support of outpatients with severe aplastic anemia. (2/463)

The threshold for prophylactic platelet transfusions in patients with hypoplastic thrombopenia generally recommended in the standard literature is 20,000 platelets/microL. A more restrictive transfusion policy may be indicated in patients with chronic severe aplastic anemia (SAA) in need of long-term platelet support. We evaluated the feasibility and safety of a policy with low thresholds for prophylactic transfusions (+info)

Changes in endogenous TPO levels during mobilization chemotherapy are predictive of CD34+ megakaryocyte progenitor yield and identify patients at risk of delayed platelet engraftment post-PBPC transplant. (3/463)

Patients with delayed platelet recovery post-PBPC transplant (PBPCT) are a high-risk group for thrombocytopenic bleeding and platelet transfusion dependence. Total CD34+ cell dosage has been proposed as the most important factor influencing the rate of platelet recovery. To achieve the shortest time to platelet engraftment, a minimum leukapheresis target of 10x10(6) CD34+ cells/kg was established for 30 patients. Of the 29 evaluable patients, 62% had rapid (group I: time to platelets >20x10(9)/l < or =10 days and 50x10(9)/l < or =14 days) platelet recoveries while 38% had delayed (group II: 20x10(9)/l >10 days and 50x10(9)/l >14 days) recoveries. Groups I and II were compared for: (1) pretreatment variables; (2) mobilizing capability of CD34+ cells and subsets including megakaryocyte (Mk) progenitors; (3) infused dose of these cells at transplant; (4) changes in endogenous levels of Mpl ligand (or TPO) during mobilization and myeloablative chemotherapy. Group II patients received significantly more platelet transfusions (6 vs. 2.1, P = 0.002) post-PBPCT, had a higher proportion of patients with a prior history of BM disease (64% vs. 6%, P = 0.001), and showed a reduced ability to mobilize differentiated (CD34+/38+, CD34+/DR+) and Mk progenitors (CD34+/42a+, CD34+/61+). Only the number of Mk progenitors reinfused at transplant was significantly different between the groups (group II vs. group I: CD34+/42a+ = 1.02 vs. 2.56x10(6)/kg, P = 0.013; CD34+/61+ = 1.12 vs. 2.70x10(6)/kg, P = 0.015). The ability to mobilize Mk progenitors correlated with percentage changes in endogenous levels of TPO from baseline to platelet nadir during mobilization chemotherapy (CD34+/42a+: r = 0.684, P = 0.007; CD34+/61+: r = 0.684, P = 0.007), with group II patients experiencing lower percentage changes. An inverse trend but no correlation was observed between serial TPO levels and platelet counts. TPO levels remained elevated in group II patients throughout a prolonged period of thrombocytopenia (median days to 50x10(9)/l = 25 vs. 11 for group I), indicating that delayed engraftment was not due to a deficiency of TPO but to a lack of Mk progenitor target cells. Our results show that the number of reinfused Mk progenitors is a better predictor of platelet engraftment than total CD34+ cell dosage. Small changes in endogenous TPO levels during mobilization predict for low Mk progenitor yields.  (+info)

Subsets of CD34+ hematopoietic progenitors and platelet recovery after high dose chemotherapy and peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. (4/463)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Randomized clinical trials have shown that peripheral blood stem cell transplantations (PBSCT) with appropriate doses of CD34+ cells are associated with rapid, complete and sustained recovery of marrow functions. Nevertheless, in a minority af patients delayed platelet recovery may occur and it remains to be established whether analysis of transplanted CD34+ cell subsets may demonstrate correlation with this phenomenon. We studied a series of 80 consecutive transplanted patients with the aim of evaluating the effect of CD34+ stem cell numbers and, in a subgroup of 32 patients, the effect of the lineage specific subset numbers on time to platelet engraftment (i.e. time to platelet counts higher than 20x10(9)/L for two consecutive days without the need for platelet transfusions). DESIGN AND METHODS: Different clinical and paraclinical factors were examined in a multivariate analysis for effect on platelet engraftment in 80 patients. RESULTS: The number of CD34+ cells/kg infused was the most important factor predicting the time to platelet engraftment. Patients receiving more than 10x10(6) CD34+ cells/kg had prompt platelet engraftment. The majority of the patients (78%) received fewer than 10x10(3) CD34+ cells/kg and 17/62 (27%) of these patients experienced delayed platelet engraftment. In 32 patients receiving fewer than 10x10(6) CD34+ cells/kg we focused on the content of different lineage specific CD34+ subsets in the PBSC products. The most significant correlation was recognized for CD34+/CD61+ megakaryocytic cell number and platelet engraftment. An inverse correlation between the CD34+/CD38Eth subset and platelet engraftment was found, indicating that a high number of CD34+/CD38Eth in the PBSC product might increase the risk for delayed engraftment. These results were further confirmed by the observation that patients who experienced platelet engraftment after day 20 had significantly more CD34+/CD38Eth cells/kg infused than patients with fast engraftment. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: The number of total CD34+ cells/kg infused was the most important factor predicting time to platelet engraftment. CD34+ subset analysis in a subgroup of patients suggests that a high number of uncommitted progenitors may be associated with slower platelet recovery than transplantation with a higher fraction of more committed peripheral blood stem cells.  (+info)

Serious hazards of transfusion (SHOT) initiative: analysis of the first two annual reports. (5/463)

OBJECTIVE: To receive and collate reports of death or major complications of transfusion of blood or components. DESIGN: Haematologists were invited confidentially to report deaths and major complications after blood transfusion during October 1996 to September 1998. SETTING: Hospitals in United Kingdom and Ireland. SUBJECTS: Patients who died or experienced serious complications, as defined below, associated with transfusion of red cells, platelets, fresh frozen plasma, or cryoprecipitate. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Death, "wrong" blood transfused to patient, acute and delayed transfusion reactions, transfusion related acute lung injury, transfusion associated graft versus host disease, post-transfusion purpura, and infection transmitted by transfusion. Circumstances relating to these cases and relative frequency of complications. RESULTS: Over 24 months, 366 cases were reported, of which 191 (52%) were "wrong blood to patient" episodes. Analysis of these revealed multiple errors of identification, often beginning when blood was collected from the blood bank. There were 22 deaths from all causes, including three from ABO incompatibility. There were 12 infections: four bacterial (one fatal), seven viral, and one fatal case of malaria. During the second 12 months, 164/424 hospitals (39%) submitted a "nil to report" return. CONCLUSIONS: Transfusion is now extremely safe, but vigilance is needed to ensure correct identification of blood and patient. Staff education should include awareness of ABO incompatibility and bacterial contamination as causes of life threatening reactions to blood.  (+info)

Correlation of cytokine elaboration with mononuclear cell adhesion to platelet storage bag plastic polymers: a pilot study. (6/463)

The basis for many febrile nonhemolytic transfusion reactions associated with platelet transfusion therapy is cytokine elaboration and accumulation in the storage bag, which correlate with the leukocyte content and the length of platelet storage. We propose that a possible additional variable in the elaboration and accumulation of cytokines is the differential adhesion of mononuclear cells to the plastic substrate of the platelet storage bag. We hypothesize that mononuclear cell adhesion-induced cytokine release is greater in random-donor platelet bags composed of the polyolefin polymer compared to the single-donor apheresis platelet bags composed of the polyvinyl chloride polymer with the tri-(2-ethylhexyl) trimellitate (TEHTM) plasticizer. For four blood donors, we demonstrate preferential mononuclear cell adhesion, in vitro, to discs of polyolefin polymer versus discs of polyvinyl chloride polymer with the TEHTM plasticizer. Scanning electron microscopy corroborates this. In addition, proinflammatory cytokine (interleukin 1beta [IL-1beta] and tumor necrosis factor alpha [TNF-alpha]) levels are greater in culture wells containing discs of polyolefin polymer than in those containing discs of polyvinyl chloride polymer with the TEHTM plasticizer, and even more so in storage bags containing polyolefin polymer versus polyvinyl chloride polymer with the TEHTM plasticizer (IL-1beta, TNF-alpha, IL-6, and IL-8). This study suggests, for the first time, that differential plastic substrate mononuclear cell adhesion may contribute to cytokine release during platelet storage. This may represent an additional variable in the pathophysiology of febrile nonhemolytic transfusion reactions in patients receiving stored platelet units.  (+info)

Sickle cell disease and aortic valve replacement: use of cardiopulmonary bypass, partial exchange transfusion, platelet sequestration, and continuous hemofiltration. (8/463)

Sickle cell disease in patients undergoing open heart procedures presents a multitude of challenges to the medical staff. With improved techniques of cardiopulmonary bypass, surgery, and anesthesia for treating patients with sickle cell disease, perfusionists will likely encounter patients with this genetic disorder on a more frequent basis. A 40-year-old black woman was admitted to our institution with recurrent Staphylococcus epidermidis and sepsis. She underwent transesophageal echocardiography and cardiac catheterization and was subsequently diagnosed with severe aortic insufficiency. The aortic valve was replaced. Herein, we report our experience in the preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative management of this patient. We present a concise update on the current literature and techniques used by others in similar cases, and we provide a brief section on future considerations to assist fellow practitioners in recognizing this disease and meeting the accompanying challenges.  (+info)

Background Platelet transfusions are used in modern clinical practice to prevent and treat bleeding in people who are thrombocytopenic due to bone marrow failure. Although considerable advances have been made in platelet transfusion therapy in the last 40 years, some areas continue to provoke debate, especially concerning the use of prophylactic platelet transfusions for the prevention of thrombocytopenic bleeding. This is an update of a Cochrane review first published in 2004, and previously updated in 2012 that addressed four separate questions: prophylactic versus therapeutic-only platelet transfusion policy; prophylactic platelet transfusion threshold; prophylactic platelet transfusion dose; and platelet transfusions compared to alternative treatments. This review has now been split into four smaller reviews looking at these questions individually; this review compares prophylactic platelet transfusion thresholds. Objectives To determine whether different platelet transfusion thresholds for
Severe thrombocytopenia should be corrected by prophylactic platelet transfusion prior to central venous catheter (CVC) insertion, according to national and international guidelines. Even though correction is thought to prevent bleeding complications, evidence supporting the routine administration of prophylactic platelets is absent. Furthermore, platelet transfusion bears inherent risk. Since the introduction of ultrasound-guided CVC placement, bleeding complication rates have decreased. The objective of the current trial is, therefore, to demonstrate that omitting prophylactic platelet transfusion prior to CVC placement in severely thrombocytopenic patients is non-inferior compared to prophylactic platelet transfusion. The PACER trial is an investigator-initiated, national, multicentre, single-blinded, randomised controlled, non-inferior, two-arm trial in haematologic and/or intensive care patients with a platelet count of between 10 and 50 × 109/L and an indication for CVC placement.

CLINICAL QUESTION: What is the optimal platelet count threshold for prophylactic platelet transfusions to minimize bleeding, platelet use, and adverse clinical outcomes in thrombocytopenic patients with hematological malignant neoplasms? BOTTOM LINE: Maintaining a higher platelet count threshold (≤20 × 109/L or ≤30 × 109/L) was not associated with less bleeding than the current standard (≤10 × 109/L), but required more platelet transfusions (low-quality evidence).
A review in people with blood cancers receiving intensive chemotherapy or a stem cell transplant found that overall giving platelet transfusions when the platelet count is less than 10 x 109/L reduced the number of bleeding events and days with significant bleeding.[15] However, this benefit was only seen in certain patient groups, and people undergoing an autologous stem cell transplant derived no obvious benefit.[15] Despite prophylactic platelet transfusions, people with blood cancers often bleed, and other risk factors for bleeding such as inflammation and duration of thrombocytopenia should be considered.[13]. There is little evidence for the use of preventative platelet transfusions in people with chronic bone marrow failure, such as myelodysplasia or aplastic anemia.[16] Multiple guidelines recommend prophylactic platelet transfusions are not used routinely in people with chronic bone marrow failure, and instead an individualised approach should be taken.[11][10][13]. Several studies have ...

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: To compare the relative efficacy of different treatments for thrombocytopenia (artificial platelet substitutes, platelet-poor plasma, fibrinogen, rFVIIa, rFXIII, thrombopoietin mimetics, antifibrinolytic drugs or platelet transfusions) in patients with chronic bone marrow failure and to derive a hierarchy of potential alternate treatments to platelet transfusions.
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 ...
Patients in the group with a threshold of 10,000 platelets per cubic millimeter received 21.5 percent fewer platelet transfusions than the patients in the group with a threshold of 20,000 platelets per cubic millimeter (P=0.001). The numbers of red-cell units transfused were not significantly different between groups. Major bleeding (defined as any bleeding more than petechiae or mucosal or retinal bleeding) occurred in 21.5 and 20 percent of patients, respectively (P=0.41), and on 3.1 and 2.0 percent of the days of hospitalization. One episode of fatal cerebral hemorrhage occurred in the group with a threshold of 10,000 platelets per cubic millimeter; none occurred in the other group (P= 0.95). Actuarial estimates of survival during induction chemotherapy, actuarial estimates of the absence of major bleeding, and the length of hospital stay were not significantly different in the two groups. Conclusions: ...

In the United States, over two million patients receive platelet transfusions each year either prophylactically to reduce the risk of bleeding or therapeutically to control active bleeding.. A new systematic review from 17 randomized clinical trials and 55 observational studies summarizes the platelet transfusion literature focusing on dosage, transfusion thresholds and clinical conditions. The new AABB platelet transfusion guidelines are based on this systematic review. The systematic review also highlights that further research, especially for invasive procedures, is needed to optimize the transfusion of platelets.. References ...

A systematic review identified three RCTs that compared different platelet transfusion thresholds in patients with haematological malignancies (20). Two compared a threshold of 20 x 109/L vs. 10 x 109/L, whereas the third compared a threshold of 30 x 109/L vs. 10 x 109/L. There was no evidence of a difference in the number of participants with a clinically significant bleeding episode between the 10 x 109/L threshold and higher threshold groups (three studies; 499 participants; risk ratio (RR) 1.35, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.95 to 1.90; low-quality evidence). However, this meta-analysis may not be sufficiently powered to detect a 50% increase in bleeding risk. There has been a suggestion that platelet transfusion thresholds should be lowered below 10 x 109/L, but current platelet count measurement is not accurate enough to support this change (21). No randomised studies in adult patients have assessed the use of other transfusion thresholds, such as platelet mass, absolute immature platelet ...

SUMMARY The numbers of platelet transfusions administered in the United States increased dramatically during the 1980s, and has continued to grow as increasingly aggressive medical and surgical treatments have been developed and become more widely available. In particular, the growth of more intensive treatments for hematologic and other malignancies has spurred demands for platelet transfusion support and put pressure on platelet inventories nationwide.. The response to a platelet transfusion is affected by platelet recovery and platelet survival and includes the random loss of platelets in maintaining endothelial integrity. In a normal individual, weighing 70 kg, approximately 4.8 × 1010 platelets per day will be consumed maintaining the endothelium, less than the number of platelets in a single concentrate. However, many clinical conditions can adversely affect platelet recovery and platelet survival in the circulation. Prophylactic platelet transfusion is an important part of supportive ...
However, the authors cite the Surviving Sepsis guidelines which made a weak recommendation for prophylactic platelet transfusion in patients with platelet counts below 20,000 who have significant bleeding risk. ...
Sometimes the number of platelets in the blood is lower than normal. This may be because of illness such as cancer, leukaemia or certain blood disorders, or because of a side effect of chemotherapy treatment. If your bone marrow is not working normally, the number of platelets in blood may drop. How low the number of platelets gets depends on how much the illness or the chemotherapy has affected the cells in the bone marrow.The normal platelet count in children is between 1.50 and 4 lakhs. Very rarely, more serious bleeding - for example, into the brain or the digestive system - can occur. Serious bleeding is very rare and usually only happens if the platelet count drops below 10 thousnds. In hospitals, platelet transfusions are often used to prevent the platelet count from dropping too low ...
The purpose of this study is to assess the ability of eltrombopag to elevate platelet counts thereby reducing the need for platelet transfusions in chronic liver disease patients with thrombocytopenia undergoing elective invasive procedures. The clinical benefit of eltrombopag will be measured by the proportion of subjects who avoid platelet transfusions, before, during and up to 7 days after undergoing an invasive procedure. In addition, bleeding events will be monitored during this time. The number of transfusions, safety events and medical resource utilisation will be monitored during this time and for up to 30 days after undergoing an invasive procedure to help further evaluate clinical benefit ...

MONDAY, Jan. 13, 2020 (HealthDay News) - In a clinical guideline from the American College of Gastroenterology, published in the January issue of the American Journal of Gastroenterology, recommendations are presented for management of disorders of the hepatic and mesenteric circulation.. Douglas A. Simonetto, M.D., from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and colleagues reviewed the literature to develop recommendations for disorders of the hepatic and mesenteric circulation.. The authors noted that fresh-frozen plasma is not recommended to improve thrombin generation in patients with cirrhosis; volume expansion can increase portal pressure, possibly resulting in variceal hemorrhage. In most situations, prophylactic infusion of plasma to decrease bleeding risk is futile. Outside of significant renal dysfunction or sepsis, prophylactic platelet transfusions are not recommended before common procedures such as routine variceal banding or paracentesis. Antifibrinolytic agents such as epsilon ...
If the bruising and bleeding you are experiencing is determined to be a consequence of a low platelet count, your doctor may prescribe a blood cell growth factor. Blood cell growth factors are substances produced by your body to stimulate the bone marrow to produce more platelets. If you have a severely low platelet count, you may require treatment with platelet transfusions and occasionally, admission to the hospital until the platelets return to sufficient levels in the blood to prevent bleeding.. Oprelvekin (Neumega®): The blood cell growth factor approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the prevention of a low platelet count is called Neumega®. Clinical studies have shown that Neumega® prevents thrombocytopenia and decreases the need for platelet transfusions in some patients at high risk for developing a low platelet count.. Platelet transfusion: A platelet transfusion is the addition of platelets into your blood from an outside source, such as a blood bank. Platelet transfusions ...
BACKGROUND: Platelet transfusions are used to prevent and treat bleeding in people who are thrombocytopenic. Despite improvements in donor screening and laboratory testing, a small risk of viral, bacterial, or protozoal contamination of platelets remains. There is also an ongoing risk from newly emerging blood transfusion-transmitted infections for which laboratory tests may not be available at the time of initial outbreak.One solution to reduce the risk of blood transfusion-transmitted infections from platelet transfusion is photochemical pathogen reduction, in which pathogens are either inactivated or significantly depleted in number, thereby reducing the chance of transmission. This process might offer additional benefits, including platelet shelf-life extension, and negate the requirement for gamma-irradiation of platelets. Although current pathogen-reduction technologies have been proven to reduce pathogen load in platelet concentrates, a number of published clinical studies have raised ...

LOS ANGELES - For Jacob Martinez, blood and platelet transfusions are part of daily life. So is confinement to a tiny room sealed off from the contaminates of the outside world. Jacob, 5, of Pico Rivera, has been in his clean room for three months, since he received a bone marrow transplant in October. But that transplant failed, and now a second is needed to make it possible for the boy to produce his own blood. This is a hard battle, Jacobs father, Peter Martinez, said. We just stay with him and love him, and make him as comfortable and happy as we can. Jacob suffers from X-linked Lymphoproliferative Syndrome, or XLP, an immune system deficiency. Diagnosed at just a month old, he has been in and out of hospitals his entire life. The disease makes him highly susceptible to infections and could make even mild illness deadly. It affects only boys, and is passed down by female carriers in a family, who display no symptoms. If left untreated, Jacobs life expectancy would be about 10 years. ...

Australia introduced bacterial contamination screening (BCS) for platelet components in April 2008. This study presents analysis performed to assess the efficacy of testing.Seven-day aerobic and anaerobic culture is performed using the BacT/ALERT 3D system. Following an initial machine positive (IMP) flag, all associated components are recalled, and/or clinicians treating already transfused patients are notified. IMPs are categorized as machine false positive, confirmed positive or indeterminate depending on culture results of initial and repeat samples.Between 2010 and 2012, 1·1% of platelet donations tested IMP; since 2013, this rate has fallen to 0·6% through improved instrument management, reducing false-positive IMPs but maintaining sensitivity for cultures yielding bacterial growth. On average, 66% of confirmed positive and indeterminate platelet units had been transfused at the time of detection. The majority (95%) of these grew Propionibacterium sp., a slow-growing organism that ...
Dominique had her platelet transfusion today. Our appointment was for 8:30am but the nurse called just before we left to tell us that the bag of platelets got punctured so a new batch would have to be ordered. Sometimes it can take a long time to get the blood if it is not available at the hospital and has to be ordered from the blood bank. We only had to wait until 9:30 before the nurse called to inform us the platelets were ready.. In the clinic the nurse seemed concerned because Dominiques temperature was a bit higher than normal and her ANC is zero. We will have to watch her closely for a fever or signs of infection. Like before this would mean another hospital stay. The transfusion went smooth and was complete in approximately an hour. Dominiques next appointment is on Monday, June 24th in the morning at 8:45 for blood work.. Time spent in the hospital on that day: 2 hours. ...
The treatment will try to eliminate or help the symptoms. Azacitidine is a medicine that relieves symptoms, decreases the rate of transformation to leukemia and the need for transfusions, and it probably also improves survival. About 16% of patients had a complete or partial response. Other therapy can include red blood cell (RBC) transfusions, platelet transfusions for bleeding, and antibiotics for bacterial infections. Another similar drug Deoxyazacitidine is sometimes effective. About 20-40% of patients had a partial response to the medicine. Some patients require erythropoietin, a medicine, to support their red blood cell production. When there is a severe decrease in white cells Granulocyte colony stimulating factor (GSF) can be used, which is a growth factor produced by a number of different tissues to stimulate the bone marrow to produce granulocytes and stem cells.Thrombopoietin, a medicine that regulates production of platelets by the bone marrow can be used for severe thrombocytopenia. ...

September was a strange time. I had endured two rounds of induction chemotherapy and the second version FLAM, and it had put me into a solid remission. After 21 days inpatient for the FLAM treatment, I was home for the month of September, except for the daily visits to Hopkins to check my blood and to get blood and platelet transfusions. I am not sure how many of these I had through the treatments, but it was a lot. Platelets are the part of your blood that allows clots to form so you stop bleeding when you get cut. A normal persons platelet level is around or above 150,000. Above 50,000 no transfusion is necessary, under 50,000 then a patient gets platelets. Normally, platelets are produced quickly in your body and die quickly. They survive in your blood stream for about 5 days before they die and are replenished. If your body is not producing platelets you need to have infusions. Platelets that are removed from the general blood are a yellowish gold color. Often, I would receive blood ...
Background and objectives: Platelet storage lesions (PSL) are the sum of deleterious changes that platelets undergo during storage, affecting platelet concentrate viability for transfusion. In veterinary medicine, transfusion medicine has gained popularity and recent advances have been made. There is a continuous effort to prolong the shelf life and improve the quality of platelet concentrates. Removal of leukocytes has been proven to reduce febrile post-transfusion reactions and decrease platelet premature activation and apoptosis in humans. The present study objectives were to determine if leukoreduced canine platelet concentrates have fewer and delayed onset of in vitro storage lesions compared with non-leukoreduced concentrates and to determine which variable best predicts in vitro platelet viability. Methods: Platelet concentrates from twelve dogs were stored between 22°C - 24°C under continuous agitation for 7 days. Each sample was equally divided into leukoreduced (LR), leukoreduced ...
Plateletpheresis (more accurately called thrombocytapheresis or thrombapheresis, though these names are rarely used) is the process of collecting thrombocytes, more commonly called platelets, a component of blood involved in blood clotting. The term specifically refers to the method of collecting the platelets, which is performed by a device used in blood donation that separates the platelets and returns other portions of the blood to the donor. Platelet transfusion can be a life-saving procedure in preventing or treating serious complications from bleeding and hemorrhage in patients who have disorders manifesting as thrombocytopenia (low platelet count) or platelet dysfunction. This process may also be used therapeutically to treat disorders resulting in extraordinarily high platelet counts such as essential thrombocytosis. Platelet transfusions are traditionally given to those undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia, multiple myeloma, those with aplastic anemia, AIDS, hypersplenism, ITP, sepsis, ...

Apheresis platelets contain significant amounts of free PDGF, TGF-β, and VEGF in the plasma on day 1 of storage, presumably as a function of the apheresis techniques employed for isolation of a concentrated product, compared with fresh plasma isolated from whole blood drawn directly into a heparinized tube from healthy controls, which included the platelet donors. These data should not be compared with serum levels of these growth factors, which would be released during the cellular (platelet) phase of clotting resulting in much higher levels of these factors compared with plasma (25-30). Importantly, healthy donors do not have significantly increased amounts of VEGF, TGF-β, PDGF, or FGF-2 in their plasma, and the presented data support this previous work (25, 30). These concentrations increased progressively during the storage interval, showing significant accumulation in the plasma fraction compared with the previous day, and reached a relative maximum at component outdate (day 5 or 7). In ...
Canine Platelet-Rich Plasma is indicated for treatment of severe thrombocytopenic purpura or platelet function defects (thrombopathia) with active bleeding or for prophylaxis of patients with platelet dysfunction that are undergoing surgery. Platelets may be of little value in immune-mediated thrombocytopenia as they are destroyed rapidly by the liver and spleen. In such cases, platelet-rich plasma can provide an immediate short term local hemostatic effect at sites of bleeding. Repeated platelet transfusions are not advised as adverse immunologic sensitization (alloimmunization) to subsequent platelet and white blood cell exposures can develop.

Patients for elective splenectomy are usually referred to the surgeon by hematologists or oncologists, because their treatment with blood products, corticosteroids, plasmaphoresis, gamma globulins, or chemotherapy can no longer safely control the primary disease. Accordingly, the patient may require transfusion of blood products to raise the hematocrit or platelet counts to safe levels for general anesthesia and coagulation during surgery. Packed red cells may be given in advance of planned surgery, whereas platelets, with their short life span, may be infused just prior to and during the procedure. When platelet transfusions are contraindicated, endogenous platelet counts are often temporarily boosted with a few days of increased corticosteroid therapy, immune globulin or Rho D immune globulin (winrho) prior to surgery. If steroids are used, then they must be continued during and immediately after surgery. The patient should have a type and screening blood test, and blood products must be ...

A three-day-old term male baby born following emergency lower segment caesarian section (LSCS), developed neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia on D1 OL of life. The baby demonstrated bleeding from a needle prick site and neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia and so was transferred to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The baby weighed 2.28 kg. Routine blood investigations showed Hb- 17.3, TLC- 30.8, platelets-28000, total bilirubin- 28.9, conjugated-.8, plasma haemoglobin -51, DCT- negative. Blood group was B positive. Blood cultures were negative.. The baby was given one unit of random donor platelets, one unit of FFP and one unit of packed red blood cells (RBCs) along with intravenous amikacin and fluids. Gradually, the baby started taking breast feeds and was discharged after ten days. Blood films were made from EDTA anticoagulated blood. The blood film showed moderate aniso-poikilocytosis, microcytes, microspherocytes (transfused), normocytes, a few macrocytes, and occasional fragmented cells. RBCs were ...

Bacterial contamination of blood products is a major cause of transfusion-related morbidity and mortality. Due to their storage at 20 to 24°C, platelets are responsible for most of the cases of blood component-associated sepsis (1, 6, 11). Recently, Nadkarni et al. (12) have reported the use of universal primers and probes to estimate the total bacterial load in clinical samples. To detect bacterial contamination in platelet concentrates (PCs), the DNA must be extracted as efficiently as possible and the PCR mixture must not be contaminated by DNA present in the PCR reagents. Poor efficiency of DNA extraction may restrict the sensitivity of the assay, while DNA that is contaminating PCR reagents can serve as a template in PCRs, producing false-positive results. Attempts to reduce the amount of contaminating DNA from, e.g., Taq polymerases (3, 4, 5, 7) in real-time PCR have been described previously (9, 10, 13, 15). None of these methods, however, proved very effective on low copy numbers of ...
About 10-15% of patients with acquired aplastic anemia (AAA) have resistant/recurrent disease not eligible for standard treatment like hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and/or combined immunosuppression. We report a 17-year-old male with an 11 years history of AAA who, after two courses of immunosuppression, was red cell transfusion-dependent, severely thrombocytopenic, refractory to platelet transfusion, had iron overload and post-transfusion HCV infection. This patient achieved transfusion independence from platelets and normalized Hb after treatment with the anti-TNF agent Etanercept. Over a 12 months follow-up he experienced only transient increase of liver transaminases.. ...
Fetal and neonatal allo-immune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT) is considered as a rare disease due to the incidence (1/1000-1/2000 births). The major complication of severe thrombocytopenia is bleeding and particularly intra-cranial hemorrhage and neurologic sequelae following. Serology and molecular biology developments have reconfigured the platelet immunology diagnosis. Anti-HPA-1a allo-immunisation is responsible for more than 80% FNAIT cases with a high recurrence rate of severe bleeding complications. Therapeutic management has changed over the coming years from an invasive concept associating fetal blood sampling and in utero platelet transfusion to a non invasive treatment by intravenous immunoglobulins injection (IVIg ...
Ill try to be brief, even though nothing about what has happened can be easily explained. He was diagnosed with a blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) in which his hemoglobin and platelets are lower than normal. We were not alarmed with this diagnosis until last fall when he started needing blood transfusion just about weekly, and just received platelet transfusions when he needed surgery (which he needed quite often for his back).. Last November they started a treatment called Aranesp for several months, but his condition did not change. There are four other chemo treatments for this disease. Last February, they started the first treatment with Vidaza shots, finishing them with a shot of Neulasta. A rare side effect of Neulasta is a ruptured spleen, which is what happened to Walt. He was in the hospital another week. He says that if anything was going to kill him that should have done it.. Early in June, he was informed that if he doesnt get the weekly blood transfusions under ...

Transfusion of blood cell components is frequent in the therapeutic arsenal; it is globally safe or even very safe. At present, residual clinical manifestations are principally inflammatory in nature. If some rare clinical hazards manifest as acute inflammation symptoms of various origin, most of them linked with conflicting and undesirable biological material accompanying the therapeutic component (infectious pathogen, pathogenic antibody, unwanted antigen or allergen), the general feature is subtler and less visible, and essentially consists of alloimmunization or febrile non haemolytic transfusion reaction. The present essay aims to present updates in haematology and immunology that help understand how, when and why subclinical inflammation underlies alloimmunization, and circumstances characteristic of red blood cells and-even more frequently-platelets that contribute inflammatory mediators. Modern transfusion medicine makes sustained efforts to limit such inflammatory hazards; efforts can be

Wes Pak fought cancer for more than half of his life and while he and his Mom Krista, Dad Myong, two younger brothers Ebin + Eli and his baby sister Madison resided in Virginia, Wess second home became Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City where he is treated regularly. With over 120 flights under his belt getting to and from NYC, Wes endured more in his young life then any grown adult could ever imagine. We couldnt possible list everything that he endured for the past 7 years while in treatment, but just to name a few Wes had 10 major surgeries, 40+ weeks of chemotherapy, over 30 cycles of radiation, hundreds of blood + platelet transfusions, suffered seizures, brain damage, lost his left adrenal gland and kidney, part of his pancreas, a piece of his liver, a small portion of his small bowel, and his colon had to be taken apart twice and put back together. As we said, this is just a portion of what this incredibly strong and determined little boy went through. ​ ...
When Ryan Jones first met his future wife Amy in 1994, he was running in the St. Jude Memphis to Peoria run while she rode alongside, too weak to participate.After years of watching runners cross the line as a patient at St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital, Amy Jones had always wanted to run in the race herself, having been diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia at the age of 10.Chemotherapy treatments, aided by blood and platelet transfusions to keep her strong, had forced the cancer
In July 2018, 8-year-old Madison Martin stopped using her left arm. A trip to her pediatrician led us to a neurologist where we found out she had a shadow in her brain. Initially, it was considered non-urgent until the first weekend in August when she began sleeping more than normal. That very next Monday, she was admitted to St. Marys Hospital and after 3 days transferred to the Childrens Hospital of Richmond at VCU to be closer to a pediatric neurosurgeon and an oncologist, where we found out that she had 2 brain tumors. After a biopsy, it was determined that she had Germinoma and would need four rounds of chemotherapy and 20 days of radiation. Between chemo rounds, she was also admitted for fevers 3 times, one time landing her in the Pediatric ICU for a week to regulate her sodium that had skyrocketed to a dangerous level. Madison has received many blood and platelet transfusions and has been so sick during the entire treatment process. While all of this sounds just awful, the nurses, ...
Hunters nose bleed last night finally stopped/clotted after about an hour. He quickly fell asleep and snored his way through most of the night. He received a platelet transfusion before midnight and his level rose nicely. He woke up this morning energized and happy. The doctors are amazed by how well he is doing. The Attending Physician looked at Hunter today and said, Are you sure you had a transplant? However, we remain cautiously optimistic and realize things will most likely get worse before they get better ...
IL-11 through its binding to its transmembrane IL-11Rα receptor and resultant activation of downstream signaling pathways has been thought to regulate adipogenesis, osteoclastogenesis, neurogenesis and platelet maturation.[8] More recently it has been discovered that over expression of IL-11 is associated with a variety of cancers and may provide a link between inflammation and cancer.[8] IL-11 has been demonstrated to improve platelet recovery after chemotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia, induce acute phase proteins, modulate antigen-antibody responses, participate in the regulation of bone cell proliferation and differentiation IL-11 causes bone-resorption. It stimulates the growth of certain lymphocytes and, in the murine model, stimulates an increase in the cortical thickness and strength of long bones. In addition to having lymphopoietic/hematopoietic and osteotrophic properties, it has functions in many other tissues, including the brain, gut, testis and bone.[9] As a signaling molecule, ...
