We report a single-center experience in treating 18 consecutive patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) who received unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT). The median age was 17 years (range 5-61 years). Sixteen cases received a reduced-intensity regimen composed of CY (total dose 1200 mg/m(2)), rabbit antithymocyte globulin (ATG, total dose 30(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the characteristics of distribution and drug resistance of bacterial infection in several different parts of hematology department inpatients of Anhui Provincial Hospital from January 2010 to December 2014, including patients who had received hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). METHODS Anti-microbial susceptibility test(More)
Few studies have presented a comparison of myeloablative cord blood transplantation (CBT) and HLA-identical sibling hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) for AML in a disease-specific analysis, and the evaluation of GvHD-free and relapse-free survival (GRFS) in AML patients after unrelated CBT has not been reported. A total of 162 consecutive AML(More)
Treatments for patients with hematologic malignancies not in remission are limited, but a few clinical studies have investigated the effects of salvaged unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT). We retrospectively studied 19 patients with acute leukemia, 5 with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS with refractory anemia with excess blasts [RAEB]), and 2 with(More)
OBJECTIVE To campare the effect and tolerance beween intensified myeloablative conditioning regime (IMCR) without antithymocyte globulin (ATG) and myeloablative conditioning regime (MCR) for single-unit unrelated umbilical cord blood transplantation (sUCBT) in hematological malignancies. METHODS The clinical data of 190 patients with hematological(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect the autoantibodies on 30 first-degree relatives of 12 patients with pemphigus vulgaris (PV), who may share the same susceptible gene with the patients. METHODS Immunoblot and indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) method were used to detect circulatory PV antibodies in the peripheral blood. RESULTS PV antibodies were found in 19 of 30(More)
Primary graft failure (pGF) is a frequent complication following cord blood transplantation (CBT). For those patients who will not experience autologous recovery, salvage transplantation should be performed as early as possible. However, standardized treatment protocols for pGF, such as the optimal stem cell source, preparative regimen and the ideal time(More)
This study included data from 185 consecutively treated patients, 16 years of age or older, who underwent myeloablative transplantation using unrelated umbilical cord blood (UCB) (UCB transplantation (UCBT), n=70) or HLA-identical sibling donor peripheral blood stem cells alone or combined with bone marrow (BMT/PBSCT, n=115) from October 2001 to December(More)
We retrospectively analyzed the safety and efficacy of a myeloablative conditioning regimen with fludarabine (FLU) in unrelated cord blood transplantation (UCBT) of 30 pediatric patients with hematologic malignancies. The conditioning regimen consisted of FLU, busulfan (BU) and cyclophosphamide (CY). All of the patients received Cyclosporine (CSA) and(More)
