Bone Marrow Transplantation
Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
Stem Cell Transplantation
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
Blood Transfusion, Autologous
Islets of Langerhans Transplantation
Graft vs Host Disease
Agents that suppress immune function by one of several mechanisms of action. Classical cytotoxic immunosuppressants act by inhibiting DNA synthesis. Others may act through activation of T-CELLS or by inhibiting the activation of HELPER CELLS. While immunosuppression has been brought about in the past primarily to prevent rejection of transplanted organs, new applications involving mediation of the effects of INTERLEUKINS and other CYTOKINES are emerging.
Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation
Cord Blood Stem Cell Transplantation
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
Combined Modality Therapy
Deliberate prevention or diminution of the host's immune response. It may be nonspecific as in the administration of immunosuppressive agents (drugs or radiation) or by lymphocyte depletion or may be specific as in desensitization or the simultaneous administration of antigen and immunosuppressive drugs.
Tissue and Organ Procurement
The administrative procedures involved with acquiring TISSUES or organs for TRANSPLANTATION through various programs, systems, or organizations. These procedures include obtaining consent from TISSUE DONORS and arranging for transportation of donated tissues and organs, after TISSUE HARVESTING, to HOSPITALS for processing and transplantation.
Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection. (King, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
Severe inability of the LIVER to perform its normal metabolic functions, as evidenced by severe JAUNDICE and abnormal serum levels of AMMONIA; BILIRUBIN; ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE; ASPARTATE AMINOTRANSFERASE; LACTATE DEHYDROGENASES; and albumin/globulin ratio. (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed)
Fetal Tissue Transplantation
Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplantation
A class of statistical procedures for estimating the survival function (function of time, starting with a population 100% well at a given time and providing the percentage of the population still well at later times). The survival analysis is then used for making inferences about the effects of treatments, prognostic factors, exposures, and other covariates on the function.
Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.
A malignancy of mature PLASMA CELLS engaging in monoclonal immunoglobulin production. It is characterized by hyperglobulinemia, excess Bence-Jones proteins (free monoclonal IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAINS) in the urine, skeletal destruction, bone pain, and fractures. Other features include ANEMIA; HYPERCALCEMIA; and RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.
An alkylating agent having a selective immunosuppressive effect on BONE MARROW. It has been used in the palliative treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (MYELOID LEUKEMIA, CHRONIC), but although symptomatic relief is provided, no permanent remission is brought about. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), busulfan is listed as a known carcinogen.
Lymphocytes responsible for cell-mediated immunity. Two types have been identified - cytotoxic (T-LYMPHOCYTES, CYTOTOXIC) and helper T-lymphocytes (T-LYMPHOCYTES, HELPER-INDUCER). They are formed when lymphocytes circulate through the THYMUS GLAND and differentiate to thymocytes. When exposed to an antigen, they divide rapidly and produce large numbers of new T cells sensitized to that antigen.
Any of a group of malignant tumors of lymphoid tissue that differ from HODGKIN DISEASE, being more heterogeneous with respect to malignant cell lineage, clinical course, prognosis, and therapy. The only common feature among these tumors is the absence of giant REED-STERNBERG CELLS, a characteristic of Hodgkin's disease.
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
Bone Marrow Purging
Techniques for the removal of subpopulations of cells (usually residual tumor cells) from the bone marrow ex vivo before it is infused. The purging is achieved by a variety of agents including pharmacologic agents, biophysical agents (laser photoirradiation or radioisotopes) and immunologic agents. Bone marrow purging is used in both autologous and allogeneic BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION.
Hematopoietic Stem Cell Mobilization
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. Acute leukemias consist of predominately immature cells; chronic leukemias are composed of more mature cells. (From The Merck Manual, 2006)
A cell-cycle phase nonspecific alkylating antineoplastic agent. It is used in the treatment of brain tumors and various other malignant neoplasms. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p462) This substance may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen according to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985). (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
Brain Tissue Transplantation
The procedure established to evaluate the health status and risk factors of the potential DONORS of biological materials. Donors are selected based on the principles that their health will not be compromised in the process, and the donated materials, such as TISSUES or organs, are safe for reuse in the recipients.
A malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and general lymphoid tissue. In the classical variant, giant usually multinucleate Hodgkin's and REED-STERNBERG CELLS are present; in the nodular lymphocyte predominant variant, lymphocytic and histiocytic cells are seen.
A semisynthetic derivative of PODOPHYLLOTOXIN that exhibits antitumor activity. Etoposide inhibits DNA synthesis by forming a complex with topoisomerase II and DNA. This complex induces breaks in double stranded DNA and prevents repair by topoisomerase II binding. Accumulated breaks in DNA prevent entry into the mitotic phase of cell division, and lead to cell death. Etoposide acts primarily in the G2 and S phases of the cell cycle.
Lymphocyte Culture Test, Mixed
Measure of histocompatibility at the HL-A locus. Peripheral blood lymphocytes from two individuals are mixed together in tissue culture for several days. Lymphocytes from incompatible individuals will stimulate each other to proliferate significantly (measured by tritiated thymidine uptake) whereas those from compatible individuals will not. In the one-way MLC test, the lymphocytes from one of the individuals are inactivated (usually by treatment with MITOMYCIN or radiation) thereby allowing only the untreated remaining population of cells to proliferate in response to foreign histocompatibility antigens.
Tissue and Organ Harvesting
Leukemia, Myeloid, Acute
Bone Marrow Cells
Kidney Failure, Chronic
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor
A glycoprotein of MW 25 kDa containing internal disulfide bonds. It induces the survival, proliferation, and differentiation of neutrophilic granulocyte precursor cells and functionally activates mature blood neutrophils. Among the family of colony-stimulating factors, G-CSF is the most potent inducer of terminal differentiation to granulocytes and macrophages of leukemic myeloid cell lines.
Morphologic alteration of small B LYMPHOCYTES or T LYMPHOCYTES in culture into large blast-like cells able to synthesize DNA and RNA and to divide mitotically. It is induced by INTERLEUKINS; MITOGENS such as PHYTOHEMAGGLUTININS, and by specific ANTIGENS. It may also occur in vivo as in GRAFT REJECTION.
A pyrimidine nucleoside analog that is used mainly in the treatment of leukemia, especially acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia. Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA. Its actions are specific for the S phase of the cell cycle. It also has antiviral and immunosuppressant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p472)
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.
The application of probability and statistical methods to calculate the risk of occurrence of any event, such as onset of illness, recurrent disease, hospitalization, disability, or death. It may include calculation of the anticipated money costs of such events and of the premiums necessary to provide for payment of such costs.
Immunized T-lymphocytes which can directly destroy appropriate target cells. These cytotoxic lymphocytes may be generated in vitro in mixed lymphocyte cultures (MLC), in vivo during a graft-versus-host (GVH) reaction, or after immunization with an allograft, tumor cell or virally transformed or chemically modified target cell. The lytic phenomenon is sometimes referred to as cell-mediated lympholysis (CML). These CD8-positive cells are distinct from NATURAL KILLER CELLS and NATURAL KILLER T-CELLS. There are two effector phenotypes: TC1 and TC2.
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.
Blood Group Incompatibility
An antigenic mismatch between donor and recipient blood. Antibodies present in the recipient's serum may be directed against antigens in the donor product. Such a mismatch may result in a transfusion reaction in which, for example, donor blood is hemolyzed. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984).
An antibiotic substance derived from Penicillium stoloniferum, and related species. It blocks de novo biosynthesis of purine nucleotides by inhibition of the enzyme inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase. Mycophenolic acid is important because of its selective effects on the immune system. It prevents the proliferation of T-cells, lymphocytes, and the formation of antibodies from B-cells. It also may inhibit recruitment of leukocytes to inflammatory sites. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p1301)
Precursor Cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia-Lymphoma
Disease Models, Animal
Graft vs Tumor Effect
End Stage Liver Disease
Form of adoptive transfer where cells with antitumor activity are transferred to the tumor-bearing host in order to mediate tumor regression. The lymphoid cells commonly used are lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). This is usually considered a form of passive immunotherapy. (From DeVita, et al., Cancer, 1993, pp.305-7, 314)
A state of prolonged irreversible cessation of all brain activity, including lower brain stem function with the complete absence of voluntary movements, responses to stimuli, brain stem reflexes, and spontaneous respirations. Reversible conditions which mimic this clinical state (e.g., sedative overdose, hypothermia, etc.) are excluded prior to making the determination of brain death. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp348-9)
ABO Blood-Group System
The major human blood type system which depends on the presence or absence of two antigens A and B. Type O occurs when neither A nor B is present and AB when both are present. A and B are genetic factors that determine the presence of enzymes for the synthesis of certain glycoproteins mainly in the red cell membrane.
White blood cells formed in the body's lymphoid tissue. The nucleus is round or ovoid with coarse, irregularly clumped chromatin while the cytoplasm is typically pale blue with azurophilic (if any) granules. Most lymphocytes can be classified as either T or B (with subpopulations of each), or NATURAL KILLER CELLS.
Hepatic Veno-Occlusive Disease
Specialized cells of the hematopoietic system that have branch-like extensions. They are found throughout the lymphatic system, and in non-lymphoid tissues such as SKIN and the epithelia of the intestinal, respiratory, and reproductive tracts. They trap and process ANTIGENS, and present them to T-CELLS, thereby stimulating CELL-MEDIATED IMMUNITY. They are different from the non-hematopoietic FOLLICULAR DENDRITIC CELLS, which have a similar morphology and immune system function, but with respect to humoral immunity (ANTIBODY PRODUCTION).
Liver Failure, Acute
A form of rapid-onset LIVER FAILURE, also known as fulminant hepatic failure, caused by severe liver injury or massive loss of HEPATOCYTES. It is characterized by sudden development of liver dysfunction and JAUNDICE. Acute liver failure may progress to exhibit cerebral dysfunction even HEPATIC COMA depending on the etiology that includes hepatic ISCHEMIA, drug toxicity, malignant infiltration, and viral hepatitis such as post-transfusion HEPATITIS B and HEPATITIS C.
Graft vs Leukemia Effect
The specific failure of a normally responsive individual to make an immune response to a known antigen. It results from previous contact with the antigen by an immunologically immature individual (fetus or neonate) or by an adult exposed to extreme high-dose or low-dose antigen, or by exposure to radiation, antimetabolites, antilymphocytic serum, etc.
Differentiation antigens residing on mammalian leukocytes. CD stands for cluster of differentiation, which refers to groups of monoclonal antibodies that show similar reactivity with certain subpopulations of antigens of a particular lineage or differentiation stage. The subpopulations of antigens are also known by the same CD designation.
Leukemia, Myelogenous, Chronic, BCR-ABL Positive
Clonal hematopoetic disorder caused by an acquired genetic defect in PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS. It starts in MYELOID CELLS of the bone marrow, invades the blood and then other organs. The condition progresses from a stable, more indolent, chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC PHASE) lasting up to 7 years, to an advanced phase composed of an accelerated phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, ACCELERATED PHASE) and BLAST CRISIS.
A nucleoside antibiotic isolated from Streptomyces antibioticus. It has some antineoplastic properties and has broad spectrum activity against DNA viruses in cell cultures and significant antiviral activity against infections caused by a variety of viruses such as the herpes viruses, the VACCINIA VIRUS and varicella zoster virus.
Primary Graft Dysfunction
A nonparametric method of compiling LIFE TABLES or survival tables. It combines calculated probabilities of survival and estimates to allow for observations occurring beyond a measurement threshold, which are assumed to occur randomly. Time intervals are defined as ending each time an event occurs and are therefore unequal. (From Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 1995)
Mesenchymal Stromal Cells
Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS. They have also been isolated from other organs and tissues such as UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD, umbilical vein subendothelium, and WHARTON JELLY. These cells are considered to be a source of multipotent stem cells because they include subpopulations of mesenchymal stem cells.
Delayed Graft Function
A critical subpopulation of T-lymphocytes involved in the induction of most immunological functions. The HIV virus has selective tropism for the T4 cell which expresses the CD4 phenotypic marker, a receptor for HIV. In fact, the key element in the profound immunosuppression seen in HIV infection is the depletion of this subset of T-lymphocytes.
Mice homozygous for the mutant autosomal recessive gene "scid" which is located on the centromeric end of chromosome 16. These mice lack mature, functional lymphocytes and are thus highly susceptible to lethal opportunistic infections if not chronically treated with antibiotics. The lack of B- and T-cell immunity resembles severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) syndrome in human infants. SCID mice are useful as animal models since they are receptive to implantation of a human immune system producing SCID-human (SCID-hu) hematochimeric mice.
Killer Cells, Natural
Bone marrow-derived lymphocytes that possess cytotoxic properties, classically directed against transformed and virus-infected cells. Unlike T CELLS; and B CELLS; NK CELLS are not antigen specific. The cytotoxicity of natural killer cells is determined by the collective signaling of an array of inhibitory and stimulatory CELL SURFACE RECEPTORS. A subset of T-LYMPHOCYTES referred to as NATURAL KILLER T CELLS shares some of the properties of this cell type.
A group of genetically identical cells all descended from a single common ancestral cell by mitosis in eukaryotes or by binary fission in prokaryotes. Clone cells also include populations of recombinant DNA molecules all carrying the same inserted sequence. (From King & Stansfield, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
Cell- and Tissue-Based Therapy
The chilling of a tissue or organ during decreased BLOOD perfusion or in the absence of blood supply. Cold ischemia time during ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION begins when the organ is cooled with a cold perfusion solution after ORGAN PROCUREMENT surgery, and ends after the tissue reaches physiological temperature during implantation procedures.
Blood Component Removal
Colony-Forming Units Assay
Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care. (Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
Graft vs Host Reaction
Natural history of papillary lesions of the urinary bladder in schistosomiasis. (1/3859)Variable epithelial hyperplasia was observed in urinary bladder of nine capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella) when examined at cystotomy 94 to 164 weeks after infection with Schistosoma haematobium. These hosts were followed for 24 to 136 weeks postcystotomy to determine the status of bladder lesions in relation to duration of infection and to ascertain whether lesion samples removed at cystotomy reestablished themselves in autologous and heterologous transfers. There was involution of urothelial hyperplasia in eight of nine animals and no evidence for establishment of transplanted bladder lesions. (+info)
Autografting with philadelphia chromosome-negative mobilized hematopoietic progenitor cells in chronic myelogenous leukemia. (2/3859)Intensive chemotherapy given in early chronic phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) has resulted in high numbers of circulating Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome-negative hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC). We have autografted 30 consecutive patients with CML in chronic phase with HPC collected in this way to facilitate restoration of Ph-negative hematopoiesis in bone marrow after high-dose therapy. Hematopoietic recovery to greater than 0.5 x10(9)/L neutrophils and to greater than 25 x 10(9)/L platelets occurred in all patients, a median of 13 (range, 9 to 32) days and 16 (range, 6 to 106) days postautograft, respectively. Regenerating marrow cells were Ph-negative in 16 (53%) patients and greater than 66% Ph-negative in 10 (33%) patients. Twenty-eight patients are alive 6 to 76 months (median, 24 months) after autografting. Three patients have developed blast crisis from which 2 have died. Eight patients are in complete cytogenetic remission at a median of 20 (range, 6 to 44) months with a median ratio BCR-ABL/ABL of 0.002 (range, <0.001 to 0.01). Eight patients are in major cytogenetic remission at a median of 22 (range, 6 to 48) months. No patient died as a consequence of the treatment. All patients had some degree of stomatitis that was severe in 15 (50%) patients. Gastrointestinal and hepatic toxicities were observed in about one fourth of patients. Thus, autografting with Ph-negative mobilized HPC can result in prolonged restoration of Ph-negative hematopoiesis for some patients with CML; moreover, most autograft recipients report normal or near normal activity levels, suggesting that this procedure need not to be associated either with prolonged convalescence or with chronic debility. (+info)
The minimum CD34 threshold depends on prior chemotherapy in autologous peripheral blood stem cell recipients. (3/3859)We analysed 57 patients with non-myeloid malignancies who received a non-purged autologous PBSCT. All had similar mobilisation and conditioning regimens. A high prior chemotherapy score and the number of chemotherapy lines used (P = 0.015 and P = 0.01, respectively) were adverse predictors of CD34 cell yields. Lower CD34 values (P = 0.002) were seen in patients treated with potent stem cell toxins (BCNU, melphalan, CCNU and mustine), designated toxicity factor 4 agents (TF4). All patients infused with grafts containing CD34 cell doses between 1.0 and 2.0 x 10(6)/kg (range 1.25-1.90) engrafted by day 51. The only variable associated with slow platelet recovery was exposure to TF4 (P = 0.007). The majority of patients with CD34 >1.0 x 10(6)/kg achieved rapid and sustained engraftment and the only predictive factor of delayed recovery is prior exposure to stem cell toxins. Potential PBSCT candidates should if possible avoid first line and salvage chemotherapy containing TF4 drugs. We therefore advocate a minimum CD34 threshold of >1.0 x 10(6)/kg in patients without extensive prior chemoradiotherapy, and > or = 2.0 x 10(6)/kg in all other patients. (+info)
Infectious complications in 126 patients treated with high-dose chemotherapy and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. (4/3859)The effect of an extensive prophylactic antimicrobial regimen was prospectively assessed in 126 patients after high-dose chemotherapy and autologous PBSC. They received ciprofloxacin (500 mg/12 h), acyclovir (200 mg/6 h), and itraconazole (200 mg/12 h) orally until neutrophil recovery. Febrile patients received i.v. imipenem (500 mg/6 h) to which vancomycin and amikacin were added if fever persisted for 2-3 and 5 days, respectively. Amphotericin B lipid complex was further given on day 7 or 8 of fever. Median times for a neutrophil count of >0.5 x 10(9)/l and a platelet count of >20 x 10(9)/l were 9 and 11 days. Severe neutropenia (<0.1 x 10(9)/l) lasted for a median of 5 days in which 72% of febrile episodes and 50% of cases of bacteremia occurred. Gram-positive bacteria were isolated in 30 of 40 episodes of bacteremia, 25 of which were caused by Staphylococcus epidermidis. Clinical foci were the intravascular catheter in 35 cases, respiratory infection in 11, cellulitis in two, anal abscess in one, and neutropenic enterocolitis in one. The high incidence of febrile episodes (94%) and bacteremias (31%) may be due to the lack of efficacy of antimicrobial prophylaxis and the persistence of a 5-day period of severe neutropenia. (+info)
Lymphomatoid granulomatosis following autologous stem cell transplantation. (5/3859)Lymphomatoid granulomatosis (LYG) is a rare angio-destructive lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD) of uncertain etiology, with prominent pulmonary involvement. Recent studies indicate that LYG is an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated B cell LPD with large numbers of background reactive T lymphocytes (T cell-rich B cell lymphoma). Although the disease frequently, but not exclusively, occurs in various immunodeficiency states, it has not been reported in association with the transient immunosuppression following autologous bone marrow/peripheral stem cell transplantation (ABM/PSCT). We describe a patient who developed lymphomatoid granulomatosis of the lung approximately 2 weeks after high-dose chemotherapy and autologous peripheral stem cell transplantation for multiple myeloma. Although molecular studies showed no evidence of EBV genome in the biopsy material, the serologic profile with high IgM titers was suggestive of primary EBV infection. Complete radiologic remission occurred following reconstitution of the patient's immune response after a 2-week course of ganciclovir treatment. Despite the apparently low frequency of LPD (both LYG and EBV-associated post-transplant lymphoma) in the ABMT setting, we believe that it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients whose clinical course following ABMT is complicated by fevers, in the absence of an identifiable infectious process. (+info)
Poor outcome of autologous stem cell transplantation for adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma: a case report and review of the literature. (6/3859)A limited number of patients with adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) who received autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) have been reported. We report here a case of fatal systemic Candida krusei infection in a female patient with ATL undergoing ASCT. All of the eight patients (including seven patients in the literature) with ATL who received ASCT developed relapse of ATL or death due to ASCT complication, irrespective of subtype or remission state of ATL, source or selection of SCT or conditioning regimen. At present, ASCT appears to provide little benefit for ATL in contrast to that for other types of aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. (+info)
Rapid autologous marrow recovery and eradication of infectious mononucleosis despite severe immunosuppression following second transplantation for aplastic anemia. (7/3859)A patient with aplastic anemia failed to respond to immunosuppressive therapy and first marrow transplantation (BMT). Recovery of autologous hematopoiesis was rapid following a second stem cell transplant with a non-myeloablative preparatory regimen. The autologous immune response to infectious mononucleosis (IM) 4 weeks post-transplant was normal despite recent and ongoing severe immunosuppression. (+info)
Advances in therapy of multiple myeloma: lessons from acute leukemia. (8/3859)This paper traces the lack of progress, until recently, in the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM) to having ignored the principles that led to cure in acute leukemia more than 2 decades ago. Only in the mid-1980s did investigation begin to consider complete remission (CR) a research objective, representing a necessary first step toward cure. The experience with autologous and allogeneic stem cell-supported high-dose therapy is reviewed, demonstrating, in both historically controlled and randomized studies, the validity of the dose-response concept in MM in terms of increased CR rates as well as extended event-free (EFS) and overall survival (OS). Avoidance of hematopoietic stem cell-damaging agents, especially melphalan, nitrosoureas, and ionizing radiation to marrow-containing sites, assures the ability of peripheral stem cell collection of high quality and quantity, providing rapid engraftment so that mortality is well under 5% following high-dose melphalan (200 mg/m2). This treatment can be applied safely to patients even >70 years of age and in the presence of renal failure. Tandem autotransplants after multiregimen induction have yielded CR rates in the 40% range with median durations of EFS and OS of 43 and 62 months, respectively. Certain chromosomal abnormalities (11 and 13; and translocations) represent the dominant adverse prognosticator for EFS and OS, confirmed in over 500 patients including those with prior therapy. Allogeneic transplants, possible in less than 10% of MM patients, are associated with a 50% mortality during the first year and, unfortunately, late relapses; thus, this approach should be reserved for patients with high-risk disease early in their management. A risk-based treatment algorithm that matches a patient's disease risk with the risk of intervention is presently used, followed by bisphosphonate therapy, not only to delay the onset of MM-related bone disease but also to induce tumor cell apoptosis, indirectly or directly, by down-regulation of cytokines with antiapoptotic activities. Although many patients relapse, this author subscribes to his mentor's motto: "Be Prepared for Success!". (+info)
Loss of quiescence and impaired function of CD34+/CD38low cells one year following autologous stem cell transplantation |...
Patients following autologous stem cell transplantation are more susceptible to chemotherapy induced bone marrow toxicity. In the present study, bone marrow primitive progenitor cells were examined one year following autologous stem cell transplantation and compared with normal bone marrow and mobilized peripheral blood stem cells. Post-transplantation bone marrow contained a significant lower percentage of quiescent cells in the CD34+/CD38low fraction compared to normal bone marrow. In addition, we observed a strongly decreased stem cell/primitive progenitor frequency in post-transplantation CD34+ cells as defined by long-term culture assays. Measurement of the levels of reactive oxygen species by flow cytometry revealed comparable levels in post-transplantation and normal bone marrow CD34+/CD38low cells, while significantly higher levels of reactive oxygen species were observed in CD34+/CD38high cells following autologous stem cell transplantation compared to normal bone marrow. Moreover, ...

High-Dose Chemotherapy Plus Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation Compared With Intermediate-Dose Chemotherapy Plus Autologous...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, thiotepa, and etoposide, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with autologous stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells. Isotretinoin may be effective in preventing recurrence of glioma. It is not yet known which regimen of chemotherapy plus autologous stem cell transplantation with or without isotretinoin is more effective in treating recurrent high-grade glioma.. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying high-dose chemotherapy or intermediate-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation to see how well it works compared to high-dose chemotherapy or intermediate-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation and isotretinoin in treating young patients with recurrent high-grade glioma. ...

We conducted a pilot study in 20 patients with high-risk or recurrent/refractory non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) using high-dose sequential chemotherapy (HDSC) and autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (AHCT). After cytoreduction with standard salvage therapy, HDSC/AHCT was administered in 4 phases at 2- to 4-week intervals. Phase 1 consisted of cyclophosphamide 7 g/m2 followed by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) at 10 microg/kg per day and leukapheresis upon recovery from white blood cell nadir. The hematopoietic cell product was enriched by Percoll gradient separation and purged with a B-cell or T-cell monoclonal antibody panel and complement. Phase 2 consisted of methotrexate 8 g/m2 with leucovorin rescue and vincristine 1.4 mg/m2. Phase 3 was etoposide 2 g/m2 with G-CSF 5 microg/kg per day. In phase 4, the preparative regimen of mitoxantrone 60 mg/m2 and melphalan 180 mg/m2 was administered followed by AHCT. The NHL histologies were diffuse large cell, follicular/diffuse ...

Long-term endoscopic remission of Crohn disease after autologous stem cell transplantation for acute myeloid leukaemia
A favourable course of Crohn disease has been observed after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, and there is now mounting evidence that autologous stem cell may be an effective treatment for severe autoimmune diseases. Here, we present the first long-term endoscopic follow-up of a patient with Crohn disease undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation for haematological disease. A 54-year-old woman developed Crohn disease and was submitted to ileocaecal resection. Four months after surgery, the patient contracted acute myeloid leukaemia. She was initially treated with chemotherapy, and subsequently underwent autologous stem cell transplantation. Following transplantation, the patient has remained in clinical remission regarding both diseases, without anti-inflammatory medication. She has undergone ileo-colonoscopy with normal findings at 1, 2, 3 and 5 years after transplantation. This case suggests that autologous stem cell transplantation can change not only the clinical course, but ...

Autologous Stem Cell Transplant
High-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation involves the administration of high doses of anti-cancer drugs and/or radiation therapy for the purpose of killing cancer cells, followed by the infusion of stem cells to rescue or restore bone marrow blood cell production. It is important to understand that high-dose chemotherapy is the treatment for your cancer and damage to the bone marrow is a side effect. Fortunately, the bone marrow can be rescued or replaced with stem cells. For autologous stem cell transplantation, stem cells are collected from the patient before high-dose chemotherapy is delivered. The stem cells are collected form the bone marrow or peripheral blood, processed, frozen and stored. Since these cells are collected from the patient, they are referred to as autologous stem cells and the term autologous stem cell transplantation refers to either bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation.. High-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell ...
Minimal residual disease following autologous stem cell transplant in myeloma: impact on outcome is independent of induction...
Minimal residual disease (MRD) is a powerful determinant of overall outcome in multiple myeloma (MM). Previous studies have demonstrated that the presence of MRD at the traditional day 100 assessment point following autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) independently predicts for both progression-free (PFS) and overall survival (OS). This effect on outcome is demonstrable in patients achieving a complete response (CR) and in those with both high-risk and standard-risk cytogenetics.1-4 As a consequence, MRD assessment is currently being considered as a surrogate end point for survival in academic clinical trials and for regulatory drug approval.5,6 Surrogate end points are clearly desirable in MM given the increasing complexity of treatment schedules and continually improving complete response rates and survival, such that trials of up-front therapy require 5-10 years of follow up in order to demonstrate survival differences. Acceptance of MRD as an appropriate end point would also ideally ...

As you know, autologous stem cell transplantation remains one of the most effective ways to treat myeloma. Any what we call transplant eligible patient who is fit enough, with not too much comorbidity, should get at some point an autologous stem cell transplantation. That remains true even though we have outstanding new drugs, new proteasome inhibitors, new IMiDs and combinations giving, indeed, excellent results. But still today, and that has been shown with numerous phase III trials comparing an upfront transplant versus a delayed one, every time the upfront transplant, autologous stem cell transplant, was superior and actually the very last trial was performed by the IFM in collaboration with the DFCI, the Americans, this is impress actually and the patients very briefly got VRD, Velcade Revlimid dex, and upfront transplant versus a delayed one at relapse and the option of upfront transplant was largely superior to the delayed one.. Now, even though we are improving myeloma treatment, relapse ...

After autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) in the first complete remission (CR1), patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) may relapse and undergo allogeneic HCT in the second complete remission (CR2). The aim of this study was to analyze the outcome of allogeneic HCT performed in CR2 comparing patients with prior consolidation by autologous HCT versus patients with chemotherapy consolidation. Included were 2619 adults with allogeneic HCT in CR2 from 2000 to 2017 with (n = 417) or without (n = 2202) prior autologous HCT. Patient groups were not entirely comparable; patients with prior autologous HCT were younger, had less often a favorable cytogenetic profile, had more commonly donors other than matched siblings, and more often received reduced-intensity conditioning. In multivariate analysis, nonrelapse mortality risks in patients with prior autologous HCT were 1.34 (1.07 to 1.67; P =.01) after adjustment for age, cytogenetic risk, transplant year, donor, conditioning ...

A molecular marker was found at presentation in 23/27 patients. Immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) or T cell receptor beta (TCR beta) rearrangements were detected by Southern blotting or the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in 13 patients; PCR detected the bcl-2/JH fusion in 10 patients. Fifteen autologous PBSC transplants have been performed in 11 patients. In 5/11 patients, the marker was present in at least one PBSC collection (in four patients, every PBSC collection was positive). Survival data are available for nine patients (two early deaths); three patients relapsed ...

Objectives: The efficacy and safety of plerixafor, an antagonist of the CXCR4 receptor, in combination with G-CSF has been demonstrated in patients suffering from Iymphoma and multiple myeloma (MM) eligible for autologous haematopoietic stem cell collection. However, different reimbursement criteria have been applied in different countries to select patients eligible for treatment with plerixafor. The objective of this observational study was to describe the plerixafor prescription modalities in daily practice in Belgium. Methods: This open-label, prospective, observational study was conducted in 11 Belgian centres in 114 patients with lymphoma (Hodgkins and non-Hodgkins lymphoma) or MM who were treated with plerixafor according to the SmPC between April 2011 and October 2012. Patients included in another clinical trial with plerixafor were excluded from the study. Results: The use of plerixafor in patients with MM or lymphoma was effective, with a success rate (defined as a total yield > 2 x ...

Background. The role of single vs double autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) for newly diagnosed (ND) multiple myeloma (MM) continues to be debated in the novel agent era. Methods. The phase III EMN02/HO95 study was designed to administer 3-4 cycles of bortezomib-cyclophosphamide-dexamethasone as induction therapy for NDMM and afterwards to randomize eligible patients to receive (randomization 1, R1) standard-dose intensification treatment with bortezomib-melphalan-prednisone (VMP) for four 42-day cycles or high-dose intensification treatment with melphalan at 200 mg/m2 (HDM) plus ASCT. A second randomization to receive or not receive consolidation therapy was planned after the intensification phase, followed by lenalidomide maintenance in both arms. In centers committed to a double ASCT policy, patients were randomized (1:1:1) to receive VMP or single ASCT (ASCT-1) or two sequential courses of HDM (administered 2 to 3 months apart) plus double ASCT (ASCT-2) in order to prospectively ...

High-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation for pediatric brain tumors
The prognosis of brain tumors in children has improved for the last 2-3 decades. However, the prognosis remains dismal in patients with relapsed tumors. The outcome for infants and young children is also poor. For younger children, the ability to use of radiotherapy (RT) is very limited because of the unacceptable long-term adverse effects of RT. The prognosis is also not satisfactory when a large residual tumor remains after surgery or when leptomeningeal seeding is present at diagnosis. In this context, a strategy using high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (HDCT/autoSCT) has been explored to improve the prognosis of recurrent or high-risk brain tumors. It was found that at least some patients with relapsed tumors can be salvaged with HDCT/autoSCT. For infants and young children, it was possible to avoid or defer RT until 3 years of age while maintaining or improving survival rates. Investigators also have explored the efficacy of HDCT/autoSCT in patients with newly ...

High-dose therapy with autologous stem cell transplantation versus chemotherapy or immuno-chemotherapy for follicular lymphoma...
BACKGROUND: Follicular lymphoma (FL) is the most common indolent and second most common Non-Hodgkin`s lymphoma (NHL) in the Western world. Standard treatment usually includes rituximab and chemotherapy. High-dose therapy (HDT) followed by autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is an option for patients in advanced stages or for second-line therapy, leading to improved progression-free survival (PFS) rates. However, the impact of HDT and ASCT remains unclear, as there are hints of an increased risk of second cancers.. OBJECTIVES: We performed a systematic review with meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing HDT plus ASCT with chemotherapy or immuno-chemotherapy in patients with FL with respect to overall survival (OS), PFS, treatment-related mortality (TRM), adverse events and secondary malignancies.. SEARCH METHODS: We searched CENTRAL, MEDLINE, and EMBASE as well as conference proceedings from January 1985 to September 2011 for RCTs. Two review authors independently ...
Autologous Stem Cell Transplant | UW Health | Madison, WI
Autologous stem cell transplants are done using peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT). With PBSCT, the stem cells are taken from blood. The growth factor G-CSF may be used to stimulate the growth of new stem cells so they spill over into the blood. G-CSF is a protein that is produced naturally in the body. The blood is removed from a vein and passed through a machine that separates the stem cells. The machine then returns the remaining blood through a needle in the persons arm or through a central venous catheter. This way of collecting stem cells is called apheresis.. In adults, most autologous transplants use stem cells from blood. In a child, the decision whether to use cells from the bone marrow or the blood depends on the size of the child.. ...

Impact of renal impairment on outcomes after autologous stem cell transplantation in multiple myeloma: a multi-center,...
Renal impairment (RI) is a negative prognostic factor in Multiple Myeloma (MM) and affected patients are often excluded from autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). However, it remains unclear whether historically inferior outcome data still hold true. From a total of 475 eligible MM patients who had undergone ASCT between 1998 and 2016, 374 were included in this multi-centric retrospective cohort study. Renal function was determined both at the time of MM diagnosis and ASCT by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR according to the MDRD formula, RI defined as eGFR | 60 ml/min/1.73m2). Patients were categorized into 3 groups: A) no RI diagnosis and ASCT, B) RI at diagnosis with normalization before ASCT and C) RI both at the time of diagnosis and ASCT. Log-rank testing was used for overall and progression-free survival (OS, PFS) analysis. While severe RI at MM diagnosis confers a risk of shorter OS, MM progression after ASCT is not affected by any stage of renal failure. It can be concluded
The Transplant Committee of the Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB) was organized in the mid-1980s at a time when high-dose chemotherapy with autologous bone marrow transplant was being actively investigated as treatment for a number of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies. Preliminary data from single institution studies had generated considerable interest in the use of high-dose chemotherapy and autologous bone marrow transplant for both metastatic and early-stage high-risk breast cancer, so that such treatment was widely employed at many centers despite the lack of definitive evidence from controlled trials that it was efficacious. Therefore, CALGB designed protocol 9082 to definitively test whether high-dose chemotherapy and autologous bone marrow transplant was superior to intermediate dose chemotherapy in women with stage II breast cancer and ≥10 positive axillary lymph nodes (1).. At the time this trial was initiated, the role of autologous transplantation as treatment for ...

Evaluation of ex vivo produced endothelial progenitor cells for autologous transplantation in primates | Stem Cell Research &...
Autologous transplantation of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) is a promising therapeutic approach in the treatment of various vascular diseases. We previously reported a two-step culture system for scalable generation of human EPCs derived from cord blood CD34+ cells ex vivo. Here, we now apply this culture system to expand and differentiate human and nonhuman primate EPCs from mobilized peripheral blood (PB) CD34+ cells for the therapeutic potential of autologous transplantation. The human and nonhuman primate EPCs from mobilized PB CD34+ cells were cultured according to our previously reported system. The generated adherent cells were then characterized by the morphology, surface markers, nitric oxide (NO)/endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) levels and Dil-acetylated low-density lipoprotein (Dil-Ac-LDL) uptake/fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-lectin binding actives. Furthermore, the efficacy and safety studies were performed by autologous transplantation via hepatic portal vein injection in a nonhuman

Objectives: To carry out a phase I-II trial to elucidate the feasibility and efficacy of high dose cyclophosphamide (CY) supported by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) in the treatment of severe and refractory autoimmune disease (AD).. Methods: Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) were mobilised during haematological recovery after relatively high dose CY (2 g/m2) for 2 days, followed by administration of granulocyte colony stimulating factor. After collecting PBSCs-more than 2×106 CD34+ cells/kg-by apheresis, CD34+ cells were immunologically selected and cryopreserved. Eight patients were enrolled-five had systemic sclerosis (SSc) alone, one had SSc with systemic lupus erythematosus, one amyopathic dermatomyositis (ADM), and one Wegeners granulomatosis (WG). All of the patients were treated with high dose CY (50 mg/kg) for 4 days and autologous PBSCT.. Results: Haematopoietic reconstitution was rapid and sustained. Toxicity due to the regimen included various ...
Autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in first remission adult acute myeloid leukaemia--an intention to treat...
The role of autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (APBSCT) in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) remains controversial. The current study evaluated the application of APBSCT in a large consecutive series of patients with untreated AML, and compared outcome with a predictive model based on MRC AML10 data. Of 148 evaluable patients, 118 patients entered complete remission (CR) after induction therapy comprising three cycles of daunorubicin, cytosine arabinoside and oral 6-thioguanine. Of these patients, 68 (57%) proceeded to consolidation therapy with two courses of intermediate dose cytosine arabinoside, and stem cell mobilisation, and 40 of these patients (34%) underwent the APBSCT procedure after high dose busulphan conditioning. Harvest quality was the main factor precluding APBSCT. Five-year event-free survival (EFS) in patients who achieved CR was 38% and in APBSCT patients was 57%. There were no transplant-related deaths. No significant differences were demonstrated between ...
Value of allogeneic versus autologous stem cell transplantation and chemotherapy in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes and...
BACKGROUND: Allogeneic stem cell transplantation is usually considered the only curative treatment option for patients with advanced or transformed myelodysplastic syndromes in complete remission, but post-remission chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation are potential alternatives, especially in patients over 45 years old. DESIGN AND METHODS: We evaluated, after intensive anti-leukemic remission-induction chemotherapy, the impact of the availability of an HLA-identical sibling donor on an intention-to treat basis. Additionally, all patients without a sibling donor in complete remission after the first consolidation course were randomized to either autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation or a second consolidation course consisting of high-dose cytarabine. RESULTS:

Interim restaging with functional imaging by positron emission tomography using 18F-deoxyglucose (FDG-PET) has not been established after salvage chemotherapy (ST) and before HDT-ASCT by modern criteria. Herein, we evaluated 129 patients with rel/ref DLBCL proceeding to HDT-ASCT, with ST response assessment by FDG-PET according to the contemporary Deauville 5-point scale. At 3 years, patients ...
HIV-Positive Patients with Lymphoma Should No Longer be Excluded From Receiving Blood Stem Cell Transplants as Treatment - UNM...
HIV-positive patients with lymphoma were previously excluded from receiving autologous blood stem cell transplants as treatment, because of concern that these patients compromised immune systems would have a higher risk of infection and poor graft function due to their need for HIV medications. Results from the clinical trial, presented at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) meetings on December 8 at 4:45 p.m. PST, show the concern of additional risk is unfounded. Patients with HIV-associated lymphoma (HAL) who meet standard eligibility criteria should receive an autologous blood stem cell transplant as standard of care or be enrolled in a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded clinical trial.. The single-arm, multi-institutional clinical trial-conducted by the Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network (BMT CTN) in collaboration with the AIDS Malignancy Clinical Trials Consortium (AMC)-followed the progress of 40 patients with treatable HIV-1 infection 15 years of age and ...
Autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation following high-dose chemotherapy for non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue...
The search strategy had the broad aim of the retrieval of all relevant studies. With respect to historical versions of the Cochrane Review,10 we applied two different search strategies and retrieved the same studies with aggregate data but different studies with individual cases data. These results show the substantial difficulty associated with the aim of searching for all published cases. This enterprise appears almost impossible. We adopted the new WHO 2013 classification of STS and made minor modifications to define a clear terminology for the study selection process. The group of NRSTS consists of many subtypes that are difficult to diagnose and separate even today. A considerable number of tumours cannot be clearly assigned to a specific histological category. Thus, we may have tumours with a specific label that might not be true. Otherwise, we may have tumours without a specific label that might belong to a specific category. We excluded studies if the proportion of non-eligible ...

Results The median Inflammatory Neuropathy Cause and Treatment (INCAT) score within 1 month prior to AHSCT was 6 and the Rankin score 4. Total INCAT and Rankin scores improved significantly within 2-6 months after AHSCT and continued to do so at last follow-up. The motor action potential amplitudes (CMAP) improved already within 4 months (median) after AHSCT. Three of the 11 patients relapsed during the follow-up period, requiring retransplantation with AHSCT in one. Eight of the 11 patients maintained drug-free remission upon last follow-up. AHSCT was safe but on the short term associated with a risk of cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Epstein-Barr virus reactivation, CMV disease, haemorrhagic cystitis and pancreatitis.. ...
The treatment of progressive non-Hodgkins lymphoma with intensive chemoradiotherapy and autologous marrow transplantation
Intensive chemoradiotherapy, with or without additional local radiotherapy, and unpurged autologous marrow transplantation was given to 68 patients with progressive non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Responses were attained in 44 patients (65%, 95% confidence intervals [CI], 52% to 76%), including 37 who achieved complete responses. Fifteen patients (22%, 95% C.I. 13% to 34%) remain free of disease (including 11 continuously) at a median of 5.3 (range 3.1 to 9.1) years later. Higher Karnofsky scores (P less than .01, Mann-Whitney U test) and the absence of a history of prior radiotherapy (P = .02, chi 2 test) were associated with achievement of complete plus partial responses. Higher Karnofsky scores (P less than .01, Mann-Whitney U test) and less resistant disease status at transplantation (P = .04, chi 2 test) were significant when calculations were limited to complete responses. Karnofsky scores were also associated with the probability of freedom from progression (P = .02, log-rank) for responding ...

N2 - Dacarbazine (DTIC) is a chemotherapy drug which has antitumor activity at standard doses, exhibits a steep dose-response effect in vitro, and is associated with relatively few non-hematologic toxicities. These characteristics suggest a potential role for this drug in bone marrow transplant preparative regimens. To pursue this hypothesis, 16 patients with refractory solid tumors were enrolled in a phase I study of single agent DTIC to determine the dose of DTIC requiring bone marrow reinfusion and to define the dose-limiting toxicity and maximum tolerated dose when given with autologous bone marrow rescue. Pharmacokinetics ...

Post-Transplant Brentuximab Vedotin Improved Progression-Free Survival in Hodgkin Lymphoma Patients - The ASCO Post
In patients with Hodgkin lymphoma who are at risk for disease progression following autologous stem cell transplantation, early consolidation with brentuximab vedotin (Adcetris) post-transplant significantly improved progression-free survival compared with placebo in the phase III AETHERA trial.1 The median progression-free survival was 43 months for the brentuximab-treated group vs 24 months for the placebo group, representing a significant 43% reduction in the risk of disease progression (P = .001).. In my opinion, once this study is published, brentuximab should be the standard of care for patients with the characteristics in this trial: that is, remission duration less than 1 year, extranodal disease, B symptoms, two or more prior salvage therapies, and primary refractory disease, said lead author Craig Moskowitz, MD, Clinical Director of the Division of Hematologic Oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York.. Dr. Moskowitz explained that autologous stem cell ...
Biosimilar granulocyte-colony-stimulating factor for mobilization of autologous peripheral blood stem cells in pediatric...
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of the use of biosimilar G-CSF for the mobilization of PBSC in children committed to autologous transplantation. Biosimilar G-CSF is a cheaper alternative to originator molecule filgrastim. The patent for filgrastim expired in Europe in 2006 and in the United States in 2013. European Medicines Agency has approved several biosimilar versions, three of which are commercially available. Yet, concerns have been raised in 2011 among hematologists on the use of biosimilar G-CSF in stem cell transplant, until sufficient efficacy and safety data are available. The first report of the use of a biosimilar G-CSF for stem cell mobilization for autologous transplantation was published by Lefrère and colleagues in 2011, in whom 40 patients achieved similar mobilization yield and safety profile to the originator G-CSF. Moreover, the biosimilar G-CSF-mobilized cells were able to rescue the patient following high-dose chemotherapy. Speed of both ...
Paper: Phase I/IIa Study of Genetically Engineered NY-ESO-1 SPEAR T-Cells Administered Following Autologous Stem Cell...
Background:. NY-ESO-1 and LAGE-1a are cancer-testis antigens that are overexpressed in patients with multiple myeloma (MM), and the incidence of these antigens correlates with tumor proliferation and other high-risk features. Genetically engineered NY-ESO-1 SPEAR (specific peptide enhanced affinity receptor) T-cells (NY-ESO-1c259T cells) recognize the peptide sequence SLLMWITQC expressed by NY-ESO-1 or LAGE-1a in the context of HLA-A*02 presentation. This study evaluated treatment with NY-ESO-1 SPEAR T-cells post-autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) in patients with advanced MM. Methods:. Eligible patients were HLA-A*02:01, 02:05 or 02:06 positive, with refractory, relapsed or high risk MM associated with one or more adverse cytogenetic abnormalities. Eligible patients tumors also expressed NY-ESO-1 and/or LAGE-1a by qPCR. The primary study endpoint was safety. Secondary objectives included overall response rate (ORR) (sCR+CR+VGPR+PR) evaluated with the International Myeloma Working Group ...
S9704 Trial: Autologous Transplantation as Consolidation in Aggressive Lymphoma - The ASCO Post
Autologous bone marrow or stem cell transplantation has had an important role in the treatment of aggressive lymphoma for several decades. The important results of the PARMA study1 demonstrated that patients in first relapse who remained chemosensitive had improved progression-free and overall survival compared to patients who continued to receive standard-dose salvage therapy. Based on that trial, salvage autologous bone marrow transplantation became the standard of care for these patients and resulted in a long-term progression-free survival rate of approximately 50%.. Consolidation Strategy. If salvage bone marrow transplantation is effective, would consolidation bone marrow transplantation immediately after initial chemotherapy further improve the survival of advanced-stage, aggressive lymphomas? Over the past 2 decades, numerous randomized studies demonstrated no improvement in overall survival when all patients received consolidative autologous bone marrow transplantation or stem cell ...

The results in 34 adult patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who have undergone autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) using busulfan and cyclophosphamide (Bu/Cy) in 12 United Kingdom (UK) centers have been analyzed. There were 19 females and 15 males; median age was 40 years (range, 21 to 62 years). Nine patients were in first relapse; 25 were in second remission. The median time of first remission for the whole group was 11.5 months (range, 1 to 56 months). All the patients in first relapse and six patients in second remission received first remission marrow. The leukemia-free survival (LFS) for the patients in first relapse was 33%, with a median follow-up of 20 months. The LFS for the patients in second remission was 48% with a median follow-up of 26 months. The length of second remission exceeds the length of first remission in 14 patients. Considerable toxicity with hemorrhagic cystitis (four patients; none fatal), venoocclusive disease (four patients; one fatal), pneumonitis ...

HIGH-DOSE CHEMOTHERAPY WITH AUTOLOGOUS STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION IN FIRST LINE TREATMENT FOR HIGH-RISK DIFFUSE LARGE B CELL...
Background: The combination of Rituximab and CHOP (R-CHOP) is considered to be the standard treatment for patients (pts) with newly diagnosed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Treatment results are still unsatisfactory in a significant proportion of patients, particularly in those with a high-risk disease defined by the IPI score. The use of high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) is standard clinical practice for patients with relapsed/refractory DLBCL, while its significance as consolidation in first-line treatment remains unclear. Aims: We analyzed safety and effectiveness of R-CHOP followed by salvage chemotherapy and ASCT for patients with young (,65 years) high-risk DLBCL, defined by an age-adjusted IPI score of 2/3, for whom from 2004 on our institutional guidelines recommended ASCT as consolidation. We analyzed prognostic factors in this group. Methods: The treatment program consisted of 4 cycles R-CHOP-14 followed by 3 cycles of a DHAP-like salvage ...

In this retrospective multicentre study, we investigated the outcomes of elderly primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) patients (greater than or equal to65 years) who underwent high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation (HDT-ASCT) at 11 centres between 2003 and 2016. End points included remission, progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS) and treatment-related mortality. We identified 52 patients (median age 68.5 years, median Karnofsky Performance Status before HDT-ASCT 80%) who all underwent thiotepa-based HDT-ASCT. Fifteen patients (28.8%) received HDT-ASCT as first-line treatment and 37 (71.2%) received it as second or subsequent line. Remission status before HDT-ASCT was: CR 34.6%, PR 51.9%, stable disease 3.8% and progressive disease 9.6%. Following completion of HDT-ASCT, 36 patients (69.2%) achieved CR (21.2% first-line setting and 48.1% second or subsequent line setting) and 9 (17.3%) PR (5.8% first-line setting and 11.5% second or subsequent

Results Since 2003, 17 pts s-dcSSC were enrolled (4 M, 13 F; median age 40 yrs., ranging 20-62 yrs.), The median follow-up was of 41 months (range 6-136). A beneficial effect was observed in 16/17 pts (94%).The mean mRSS was 20.9 (SD ± 4.0) at baseline (T0), 9.8 (± 4.6) at month 6 (T6), 6.8 (± 2) at month 12 (T12), and 3.0 (± 1.6) at month 60 (T60), (all p,0.001 with respect to T0). The mean ESSG score was 5.2±0.7 at T0, 2.1±0.8 at T6, 2.1±1.8 at T12, and 1.8±0.74 at T60 (all p,0.0001 with respect to T0). OI was nearly unchanged during follow-up. Mean DLCO predicted value was 65.7%±16.8% at T0, 63.2%±12.5% at T12, and 59.8%±16.3% at T60. Mean VC predicted value was 78.7%±22.0% at T0, 83.4%±17.0% at T12, 90.3% ± 26.0% at T60. No echocardiographic changes were identified during follow-up. Two patients died from SSc-related lung and cardiac disease progression, and one patient because of interstitial pneumonia within 100 days after AHSCT, this leading to a TRM of 5.8%.. ...

Melphalan at a dose of 200mg/m2 is standard conditioning prior to autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation for multiple myeloma, but a dose of 140mg/m2 is often used in clinical practice in patients perceived to be at risk of excess toxicity. To determine if melphalan 200 and melphalan 140 are equally effective and tolerable in clinically relevant patient subgroups we analysed 1964 first single autologous transplantation episodes using a series of Cox proportional-hazards models. Overall survival, progression-free survival, cumulative incidence of relapse, non-relapse mortality, haematopoietic recovery and second primary malignancy rates were not significantly different between the melphalan 140 (n=245) and melphalan 200 (n=1719) groups ...

Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cells transplantation and genetic modification of CCR5 m303/m303 mutant patient for HIV/AIDS -...
HIV and AIDS is one of the biggest challenges all over the world. There are an approximately 34 million people living with the virus, and a large number of them become infected each year. Although there are some antiviral drugs for HIV viral load reduction, they are not sufficient. There is no cure for AIDS. Nowadays natural resistance or immunity has absorbed attentions. Because in some HIV positive patients progression trend is slow or even they indicate resistance to AIDS. One of the most interesting approaches in this category is CCR5 gene. CCR5 is a main cc-chemokine co-receptor that facilitates HIV-1 entry to macrophage and CD4(+) T cells. To now, many polymorphisms have been known by CCR5 gene that produces a truncated protein with no function. So, HIV-1 could not entry to immune-cells and the body resistant to HIV/AIDS. Delta 32/Delta 32 and m303/m303 homozygotes are example of mutations that could create this resistance mechanism. There is a new treatment, such as Hematopoietic Stem ...
About Multiple Myeloma | UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center
Most investigators believe that all these new drugs have steadily increased the overall survival substantially, although an accurate number has yet to be established.. With better treatment, the role of autologous stem cell transplantation has been questioned. However, it remains the most potent therapy against myeloma and continues to provide the best odds for achieving complete remission. In fact, a study comparing early autologous stem cell transplant compared to late transplant showed that patients who got the transplant early had longer disease remission, though overall survival was the same. (Attal et al. 2017, 1311-1320) The role of allogeneic therapy remains experimental including the combined use of autologous stem cell transplantation followed by mini allogeneic stem cell transplantation. (Mitsiades et al. 2007, 797-816; Corso and Varettoni 2007, 1-11). Emerging Therapies There are many therapeutics currently being developed for multiple myeloma by a variety of companies..
