Sixty patients with malignancy were enrolled in a study of high-dose chemotherapy and peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT). Stem cells were harvested prior to PBSCT using high-dose cyclophosphamide (CY) mobilization (4 or 7 g/m2) with collection of a median of 4.6 x 10(8)/kg mononuclear cells (range 0.2-9.5) and 21.6 x 10(4)/kg colony forming(More)
UNOS guidelines provide inadequate discriminatory criteria for kidneys that should be transplanted as single (SKT) versus dual (DKT). We evaluated the utility of the kidney donor risk index (KDRI) to define kidneys with better outcomes when transplanted as dual. Using SRTR data from 1995 to 2010 of de novo KTX recipients of adult deceased-donor kidneys, we(More)
The effect of donor body mass index (BMI) and donor type on kidney transplant outcomes has not been well studied. Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients data on recipients of deceased-donor kidneys between 1997 and 2010 were reviewed. Donors were categorized by DCD status (DCD, 6932; non-DCD, 90,158) and BMI groups at 5 kg/m(2) increments: 18.5-24.9,(More)
BACKGROUND The influence of recipient body mass index (BMI) on pediatric-donor kidney transplant outcomes is unclear. We aimed to determine graft survival and functional outcomes of pediatric-donor kidneys compared with adult kidneys stratified by recipient BMI group. METHODS Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients data for recipients from 1996 to(More)
BACKGROUND Alemtuzumab (AZ) is a monoclonal anti-CD52 antibody used as an induction agent in organ transplantation. Few studies have analyzed this agent in the context of simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation (SPKT). METHODS We examined US registry data of SPKT recipient outcomes from January 2002 to October 2009 stratified by induction agent(More)
Thirty one peripheral blood stem cell mobilizations using cyclophosphamide, followed by leucapheresis, were performed in 25 patients with a variety of haematological malignancies. Cyclophosphamide at doses ranging from 0.25 g/M2/day x 4 days to 4 g/M2 on one day were given. Total doses of cyclophosphamide less than 4 g/M2 failed to induce a significant(More)
