Long-Term indwelling right atrial (Hickman) catheters were placed in 37 patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation or intensive chemotherapy for acute leukemia and other malignancies. Blood sampling, application of blood products or intravenous drugs and parenteral nutrition were impressively facilitated. Parents were easily trained for catheter care(More)
Immunoglobulin therapy is becoming an important modality for the prevention and treatment of bacterial and viral infection. Standard intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is made from large pools of plasma obtained from normal blood donors. However, lot-to-lot variation in titers of antibody to specific microbial pathogens may diminish therapeutic efficacy.(More)
The case of a 13 year old girl with benign purpura hypergammaglobulinemica Waldenström. Besides the characteristic clinical symptoms and the respective laboratory results new findings we demonstrated, which might shed some light into the pathogenesis of this disease.

However, all IGIV lots do not contain equal amounts of pathogen-specific IgG with functional opsonic activity. To ensure effective therapy it will be important to inform physicians that the IGIV lots available for use contain functional antibacterial(More)
In 207 children chemical measurement of total iron binding capacity (TIBC) and direct immunological evaluation of transferrin by radial immunodiffusion were compared. In addition, serum ferritin was measured in nearly all cases, to exclude iron deficiency. In 14 newborns, 20 infants and 35 older children TIBC and transferrin values correlated significantly(More)
