This study evaluates the diagnostic reliability of 11 red blood cells indices, together with our new index, referred to as '11T', in differentiation of beta-thalassemia minor (BTm) from iron deficiency anemia (IDA). A total of 129 patients with microcytic anemia were involved in a retrospective study, 80 with IDA and 49 with BTm. Using an automatic program,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the megakaryocyte potential of normal bone marrow (NBM) CD34(+)CD133(+) cells, a subset offering a possible alternative for clinical CD34 immunoselection, we evaluated their colony-forming unit megakaryocyte (CFU-Mk) content and their ability to produce clonogenic Mk progenitors in comparison with the CD133(-) subset. MATERIALS AND(More)
In our experience, patients with neuroblastoma who undergo transplantation with CD34+ cells following high-dose chemotherapy have prolonged delays in platelet recovery. In vitro expansion of megakaryocyte (MK) cells may provide a complementary transplant product able to enhance platelet production in the recipient. We investigated the ability of a(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was aimed at determining the diagnostic value of conventional laboratory tests regarding the iron status and serum transferrin receptor in hospitalized patients. METHODS Patients who had to undergo bone marrow aspirate examination were included in this 8-month prospective study. Iron deficiency was defined as the absence of stainable(More)
No treatment has proved its efficiency in CLL. Autologous transplantation is now under consideration for the youngest patients. We assayed progenitor cells (CFU-GM, BFU-E, CD34) in the peripheral blood of 28 untreated CLL patients and found an increase of all these progenitors in CLL compared to controls. There was no statistical difference between stage A(More)
Acute megakaryoblastic leukemia accounts for approximately 3-10% of acute myeloid leukemia in children. Its diagnosis may be difficult because of associated myelofibrosis. We report the case of a 7-month-old child who presented hepatomegaly with bicytopenia. She also developed bone and joint pain with recurrent aseptic arthritis. We suggested the diagnosis(More)
