A pilot study of a novel, reduced-toxicity, myeloablative conditioning regimen using intravenous busulfan 12.8 mg/kg, fludarabine 180 mg/m(2), and melphalan 80 mg/m(2) for single cord blood transplantation (CBT) was conducted at our institution. Fifty-one patients with myeloid malignancies not in remission were included in this study. Their median age was(More)
The impact of anti-HLA antibodies, except for donor-specific anti-HLA-A, -B, -DRB1 antibodies, on engraftment was retrospectively evaluated in 175 single cord blood transplantations (CBT).

The medical and microbiological records of recipients of an allo-HSCT obtained between December 2008 and December 2014 were reviewed. Of 768(More)
BACKGROUND Breakthrough viridans streptococcal bacteremia (VSB) in patients with hematological malignancy receiving levofloxacin prophylaxis is a major blood stream infection (BSI) occurring during febrile neutropenia. However, clinical data focused on VSB in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (allo-HSCT) recipients are lacking. METHODS The(More)
Dear Editor, Oral beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) is a topically active corticosteroid with low systemic bioavailability [1, 2].
