staining for amyloid was negative. Spleen mass was 240 g (normal 150 g) and moderate capsular hyalinosis was present. Heart mass was 700 g (normal 300 g) and there was biventricular eccentric myocardial hypertrophy. Myocardial lipomatosis was also present. Generalized atherosclerosis with ulceratingcalcificationsandcoronaryartery sclerosiswaspresent with >(More)
Type 1 diabetes results from destruction of insulin-producing beta cells in pancreatic islets and is characterized by islet cell autoimmunity. Autoreactivity against non-beta cell-specific antigens has also been reported, including targeting of the calcium-binding protein S100β. In preclinical models, reactivity of this type is a key component of the early(More)
Hemato-oncologic patients with chemotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia are one of the populations receiving platelet transfusions. The general practice with these patients is to give prophylactic platelet transfusions when platelet counts fall below 10×109PLT/L. However, in more than 40% of these patients, platelet transfusion does not prevent bleeding. The(More)
Red blood cells (RBCs) units are the most requested transfusion product worldwide. Indications for transfusion include symptomatic anaemia, acute sickle cell crisis, and acute blood loss of more than 30% of the blood volume, with the aim of restoring tissue oxygen delivery. However, stored RBCs from donors are not a qualitative equal product, and, in many(More)
