AIMS Randomized trial to assess change in left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) and myocardial perfusion in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) of anterior wall treated with bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs), compared with control group-from baseline in the acute phase up to 12 months of follow-up. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty-five patients were(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate influence of Bone Marrow Stem Cells (BMSC) intracoronary infusion on exercise capacity, pulmonary function, heart rate recovery and SAECG in patients with AMI of anterior wall, compared to control group--from baseline in the acute phase during 12 months follow up. METHODS Forty five patients were randomized 2:1 to BMSC group (n = 31(More)
We undertook this study to characterize the haematological indices in centenarian subjects who should be an excellent group to study the mechanisms of physiological aging. This study is a part of the Polish Centenarians Program co-ordinated by the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw. We examined 89 subjects aged 100 to 111 (14(More)
INTRODUCTION Graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) remains a significant complication after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Early diagnosis and treatment may improve patient outcomes. A prospective study to investigate the relationship between chimerism kinetics and the development of acute or chronic GvHD was carried out. Split(More)
B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) is the most common form of leukemia affecting adults in Europe and North America. Large B-cell lymphoma known as Richter's syndrome (RS) may develop approximately in 3-15 % patients. Furthermore, other hematological malignancies may also occur as RS variants, among them-Hodgkin(More)
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) transplantations are usually performed 24-48 hours after the end od high-dose chemotherapy (HDC). It is possible, however, that at that time the transplanted HSC can be affected by the administered drugs. We report the results obtained in 30 patients (pts) with hematological malignancies (multiple myeloma - 14, Hodgkin's(More)
Recently, centenarians are involved in many research programs as they are believed to represent so-called successful aging. The aim of the study was to characterize morphological alterations observed in neutrophils from their peripheral blood. The study involved 40 centenarians (group B--34 females and 6 males) as well as 40 young healthy subjects aged(More)
