Prostaglandin E1 was used to prevent veno-occlusive disease of the liver after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation for leukemia. It was given in continuous IV infusion from day -8 to day 30 after BMT at the dose of 0.3 microgram/kg/h. The patients were studied according to the risk factors of VOD: diagnosis, intensification of the conditioning 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.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the leading infectious cause of death after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) because of the high mortality rate associated with CMV pneumonia. However, very interresting results were recently reported when treating CMV penumonia with the combination of ganciclovir and high doses of intravenous anti-CMV immunoglobulin. In(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the most frequent cause of lethal infection after bone marrow transplantation. Viremia occurs in 50% of patients seropositive for CMV before transplantation. Interstitial pneumonitis due to CMV occurs in 10% to 20% of patients with 85% mortality. It is known that CMV infection is due to host reactivation of latent CMV(More)
