Stem-cell transplantation in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia: A prospective international multicenter trial comparing sibling donors with matched unrelated donors-The ALL-SCT-BFM-2003
PURPOSE Although hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation is widely performed in children with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the influence of donor types is poorly understood. Thus,Expand

A fludarabine-based dose-reduced conditioning regimen followed by allogeneic stem cell transplantation from related or unrelated donors in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome
We investigated the feasibility and efficacy of a fludarabine-based dose-reduced conditioning regimen followed by stem cell transplantation from related (n = 5) or unrelated HLA-matched donors (n =Expand

HLA-mismatched unrelated donors as an alternative graft source for allogeneic stem cell transplantation after antithymocyte globulin-containing conditioning regimen.
Between August 1996 and December 2004, 369 patients with a median age of 41 years (range: 1-68 years) received stem cell transplantation (SCT) from unrelated donors after an antithymocyte-globulinExpand

Patient cytomegalovirus seropositivity with or without reactivation is the most important prognostic factor for survival and treatment‐related mortality in stem cell transplantation from unrelated
We evaluated the cytomegalovirus (CMV) serostatus as a risk factor for survival and treatment‐related mortality (TRM) in 125 patients allografted from an unrelated donor between 1994 and 1999. AllExpand

Risk assessment of relapse by lineage-specific monitoring of chimerism in children undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation for acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is required as rescue therapy in about 20% of pediatric patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. However, the relapse rates are considerable, andExpand

Long-term follow-up of allogeneic stem cell transplantation in patients with severe aplastic anemia after conditioning with cyclophosphamide plus antithymocyte globulin
Abstract. We investigated the efficacy of an antithymocyte globulin/cyclophosphamide preparative regimen prior to allogeneic stem cell transplantation from HLA-identical siblings in patients withExpand

Long-term Outcome of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Juvenile Metachromatic Leukodystrophy Compared With Nontransplanted Control Patients.
IMPORTANCE Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has been the only treatment option clinically available during the last 20 years for juvenile metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD),Expand

Response to DDAVP in children with von Willebrand disease type 2.
UNLABELLED We have prospectively evaluated the biologic response to desmopressin (DDAVP) in 28 children with type 2 von Willebrand disease (VWD) in correlation with the phenotype and the molecularExpand
