BACKGROUND Methods to simplify the stem cell transplantation procedures are needed mainly in developing countries. We have previously shown that unprocessed leukapheresis material is useful to restore hematopoiesis after high-dose chemotherapy. METHODS Over a 10-year period in a private practice setting, we prospectively performed autotransplants using(More)
We report our experience of allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation using non-myeloablative conditioning regimens delivered and supported on an outpatient basis. A group of 44 patients underwent 47 allograft procedures using peripheral blood stem cells. Approximately one third of the individuals did not require red blood cells transfusions:(More)
Autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation is the therapy of choice for the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM) patients younger than 70 years old. Between August 1993 and November 2004, 54 patients with MM were autografted after conditioning with high-dose oral melphalan 140 mg/m2 in combination with etoposide and carmustine (28 patients) or with(More)
It has been hypothesized that human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) may be associated with breast cancer progression. However, the role of HCMV infection in breast cancer remains controversial. We aimed to assess whether HCMV genes (UL122 and UL83) could be detected in breast carcinomas and reinvestigated their possible association with breast cancer progression.(More)
