Since 1980, 107 consecutive patients (pts) underwent bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for nonconstitutional severe aplastic anemia (SAA) at our institution. All received conditioning with Cytoxan (150 mg/kg) and thoraco-abdominal irradiation (6 Gy) from an HLA-identical sibling donor. Mean age was 19 years (5 to 46 years). Forty-nine pts had less than 0.2(More)
Of 322 patients undergoing allogeneic BMT, 18 developed invasive pulmonary aspergillosis at a mean of 115 days post-transplant, with a mortality rate of 82%. Pulmonary localization was common but cerebral involvement was seen in 10 of 18 patients. The diagnosis was made ante mortem in 11 patients by direct examination of pathological samples or culture and(More)
Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) was used to prevent veno-occlusive disease (VOD) of the liver after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for leukaemia. It was given in continuous i.v. infusion from day--8 to day 30 after BMT at a dose of 0.3 micrograms/kg/h. The patients were studied according to the risk factors for VOD: diagnosis, intensification of the(More)
It has been shown that human umbilical cord blood contains stem/progenitor cells comparable in number to that of adult bone marrow. We report here the first successful cases of transplantation of umbilical cord blood cells. The patients were suffering from Fanconi's anemia, complicated by severe aplastic anemia. During pregnancy, it was shown that the(More)
