INTRODUCTION This study analyses the factors affecting mobilisation and engraftment in autologous peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation according to the number of CD34(+) re-infused. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 190 patients underwent mobilisation with G-CSF alone (n=113) or in combination with chemotherapy (n=77). A total of 116 patients(More)
The tolerability of azacitidine (AZA) allows its administration in elderly patients. The objective of this study was to analyze the clinical and biological characteristics, transfusion independence (TI), overall survival (OS) and toxicity in a series of 107 patients ≥ 75 years of age from the Spanish Registry of Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) treated with(More)
In the present paper a case of a 65-year-old man diagnosed as suffering from a lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma, resistant to conventional chemotherapy, associated to a bone marrow (BM) mastocytosis, who was successfully treated with cladribine is reported. In this patient cladribine induced not only clinical remission of the lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma but it was(More)
A case of Candida parapsilosis endocarditis observed 16 months after BMT is reported. The patient, a 35-year-old female with CML, suffered from Candida parapsilosis fungemia on day +22 after BMT. In spite of treatment with amphotericin B, fluconazole and catheter withdrawal, the same yeast was isolated > 1 year later from a vegetation on an old rheumatic(More)
Bortezomib plus melphalan and prednisone (VMP) and lenalidomide plus low-dose dexamethasone (Rd) are 2 standards of care for elderly untreated multiple myeloma (MM) patients. We planned to use VMP and Rd for 18 cycles in a sequential or alternating scheme. Patients (233) with untreated MM, >65 years, were randomized to receive 9 cycles of VMP followed by 9(More)
OBJECTIVE T-cell depletion (TCD), primarily developed to prevent graft-vs-host disease (GVHD), might reduce early liver dysfunction after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. However, no comparative studies have been performed to investigate this. We analyzed the influence of selection for CD34(+) cells on the incidence and severity of(More)
Acadesine has shown in vitro to selectively induce apoptosis in B cells from chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients. We conducted a phase I/II open-label clinical study, to determine the safety and tolerability of acadesine given intravenously as a 4-h infusion to CLL patients. Patient population included CLL patients with relapsed/refractory disease(More)
OBJECTIVE There is very little literature on hernial complications of the abdominal wall in association to renal transplantation. The present report aims to evaluate their incidence and type, as well as the intervention carried out and its results. MATERIAL AND METHOD A retrospective analysis of a series of 650 renal transplantations has been carried out(More)
