Outcomes of Adolescents and Young Adults Compared with Children with Acute Leukemia after Single-Unit Unrelated Cord Blood Transplantation Using Myeloablative Conditioning without Antithymocyte Globulin.

Acta Haematol 2021 Apr 13:1-11. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Hematology, Anhui Provincial Hospital, Cheeloo College of Medicine, Shandong University, Jinan, China.

Background: Although the use of cord blood transplantation (CBT) is becoming more frequent in acute leukemia, considering the relationship between the low stem cell dose and graft failure, whether use of CBT for adolescents and young adults (AYAs) is appropriate remains uncertain.

Methods: A retrospective registry-based analysis of clinical outcomes and immune reconstitution was conducted for 105 AYAs and 187 children with acute leukemia who underwent single-unit CBT using myeloablative conditioning (MAC) without antithymocyte globulin (ATG).

Results: Outcomes were similar between AYAs and children, except for nonrelapse mortality (NRM) and recovery rates of neutrophils and platelets. Read More

Applying generalizability theory to examine assessments of subjective cognitive complaints: whose reports should we rely on - participant versus informant?

Int Psychogeriatr 2021 Apr 13:1-11. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

School of Psychology, University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand.

Objectives: This study aimed to apply the generalizability theory (G-theory) to investigate dynamic and enduring patterns of subjective cognitive complaints (SCC), and reliability of two widely used SCC assessment tools.

Design: G-theory was applied to assessment scales using longitudinal measurement design with five assessments spanning 10 years of follow-up.

Setting: Community-dwelling older adults aged 70-90 years and their informants, living in Sydney, Australia, participated in the longitudinal Sydney Memory and Ageing Study. Read More

Performance assessment of intravenous catheters for massive transfusion: A pragmatic in vitro study.

Transfusion 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Veterens Affairs Portland Health Care System, Portland, Oregon, USA.

Background: Rapid infusion of warmed blood products is the cornerstone of trauma resuscitation and treatment of surgical and obstetric massive hemorrhage. Integral to optimizing this delivery is selection of an intravenous (IV) catheter and use of a rapid infusion device (RID). We investigated which IV catheter and RID system enabled the greatest infusion rate of blood products and the governing catheter characteristics. Read More

Improved transplant outcomes with myeloablative conditioning for hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in HLA-matched and mismatched donors: a national multicenter retrospective study.

Bone Marrow Transplant 2021 Apr 12. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

We report the results of national retrospective study of 45 children with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) who underwent allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT) in Israel between the years 2000-2018. Donors were either HLA-matched (n = 26), partially mismatched (n = 7), haploidentical (n = 8), or cord-blood (n = 4). Myeloablative conditioning (MAC) was used in 20 procedures, and reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) in 25. Read More

Clinic for Small Animal Internal Medicine, Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 260, 8057 Zürich, Switzerland.

Purpose Of Review: Among the nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), complex (MAC) is the leading cause of pulmonary disease in humans. Innate and acquired immunodeficiencies have been associated with an increased host susceptibility to NTM infections. The underlying mechanisms predisposing humans and dogs to MAC infections is being elucidated. Read More
