Human striatal neuroblasts develop and build a striatal-like structure into the brain of Huntington's disease patients after transplantation
TLDR
This study provides the first evidence in humans that neuroblasts of a striatal primordium can develop and move into the brain after neurotransplantation, and support both the reconstructive potential of fetal tissue and the remarkably retained plasticity of adult brain. Expand
Use of CFDA-SE for evaluating the in vitro proliferation pattern of human mesenchymal stem cells.
TLDR
CFSE has been shown as a reliable method for studying the proliferative activity of MSC subpopulations identified by flow cytometric analysis, even if a significantly smaller percentage of RS cells expressed some of the classic mesenchymal Ag. Expand
Significance of CTLA-4 and CD14 genetic polymorphisms in clinical outcome after allogeneic stem cell transplantation
TLDR
Significance of CTLA-4 and CD14 genetic polymorphisms in clinical outcome after allogeneic stem cell transplantation and their role in disease progression is investigated. Expand
Integrated Human Surveillance Systems of West Nile Virus Infections in Italy: The 2012 Experience
TLDR
The implementation of preventive measures for W NV transmission through blood components allowed the detection of blood donors positive for WNV, avoiding the further spread of the disease and the Italian experience could be considered a good example of collaboration among different sectors of public health in a “one health” perspective. Expand
Prostaglandin E2 bladder instillation for the treatment of hemorrhagic cystitis after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.
TLDR
Intravesical prostaglandin E2 instillation appears to be an effective treatment for hemorrhagic cystitis in bone marrow transplant patients; further studies are required to assess the actual role of BK virus in the pathogenesis of HC in bone stem cell transplant patients. Expand
Infections by carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in SCT recipients: a nationwide retrospective survey from Italy
TLDR
This study shows challenging findings of CRKp infections in SCT patients in Italy particularly after allo-SCT, and the detection of carriers and the definition of early therapeutic strategies represent critical aspects of the management of CRkp infections after SCT. Expand
The COVID‐19 outbreak in Italy: Initial implications for organ transplantation programs
TLDR
Preliminary Italian data show that a 25% reduction of procured organs has already occurred during the first 4 weeks of COVID‐19 outbreak, which underlines the need to closely monitor what will be further happening in ICUs in the attempt to preserve transplant activity. Expand
Fatal herpesvirus 6 encephalitis after unrelated bone marrow transplant
TLDR
A pathogenetic role of HHV-6 in viral encephalitis in immunocompromised bone marrow transplant (BMT) recipients, and its possible association with GVHD is suggested. Expand
Development of human striatal anlagen after transplantation in a patient with Huntington's disease
TLDR
This study represents the first "in vivo" demonstration that a human striatal anlagen, transplanted into the adult human brain, is able to progress in its development and to generate a new anatomical structure in the host, without evidence of neoplasia or teratoma. Expand
Combination therapy with G-CSF and erythropoietin after autologous bone marrow transplantation for lymphoid malignancies: a randomized trial.
TLDR
It is concluded that the addition of Epo to G-CSF causes a slight acceleration of erythroid recovery after ABMT, but is not associated with transfusional benefits. Expand
