To describe the incidence, risk factors, and treatment of autoimmune diseases (ADs) occurring after cord blood transplantation (CBT), we analyzed both CBT recipients reported to EUROCORD who had developed at least 1 new AD and those who had not. Fifty-two of 726 reported patients developed at least 1 AD within 212 days (range, 27-4267) after CBT. Cumulative(More)
Unrelated umbilical cord blood (UCB) has been widely used to treat patients lacking a well-matched HLA donor. Cell dose is a critical determinant of outcomes in cord blood transplantation, limiting the use of this strategy for low body weight patients. To overcome this limitation, infusion of two partially HLA-matched cord units was adopted as a new(More)
We analyzed risk factors influencing outcomes after related (R) human leukocyte antigen-identical cord blood transplantation (CBT) for 147 patients with malignancies reported to Eurocord-European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation. CBT has been performed since 1990; median follow-up was 6.7 years. Median patient age was 5 years. Acute leukemia was(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effect of multiple prothrombotic risk factors in individuals with anticardiolipin antibodies (aCL), we evaluated immunologic, coagulation, and genetic prothrombotic abnormalities in a cohort of individuals with different aCL titers. METHODS We recruited 87 individuals into 4 categories (normal, low, intermediate, or high) based on(More)
BACKGROUND Bone complications after hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT) are relatively frequent. Evaluation of biomarkers of bone turnover and dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) are not known in this context. METHODS We prospectively evaluated bone mineral density, biomarkers of bone turnover, and the cumulative incidence of bone(More)
Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) frequently complicates allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), but small bowel involvement with obstruction is rarely observed. We report two patients who underwent allogeneic sibling HSCT and developed severe cGVHD involving the small bowel, causing unremitting obstructive symptoms and(More)
