Owing to ethnicity of the population, those best confirmed polymorphisms in the TLR (toll-like receptor)4 and NOD2 genes with significantly prognostic impact on allogeneic hematopoietic SCT (allo-HSCT) seem to be more applicable to Europeans and are nonpolymorphic in the Asian population. The influence of innate immunity gene polymorphisms on the outcomes(More)
This study aimed to analyze the association between cytokine gene polymorphisms and outcome following allogeneic hematopoietic SCT (allo-HSCT). A total of 138 unrelated donor/recipient pairs who underwent allo-HSCT from 2001 to 2009 were tested for TNFA-1031 (T>C), -863 (C>A), -857 (C>T), -238 (G>A), TNFB+252 (A>G) and TNFRII codon 196 (T>G) single(More)
Engraftment failure is a rare but life-threatening complication of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and treatment of this condition is often challenging. This case report describes a patient with acute myeloid leukaemia and engraftment failure after unrelated donor allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Rescue treatment with granulocyte-colony(More)
