Among patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) undergoing hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), the impact of residual pretransplant cytogenetically abnormal cells on outcomes remains uncertain. We analyzed HCT outcomes by time of transplant disease variables, including (1) blast percentage, (2) percentage of cytogenetically abnormal cells and (3)(More)
Various cytogenetic risk scoring systems may determine prognosis for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). We evaluated 4 different risk scoring systems in predicting outcome after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (alloHCT). We classified 124 patients with MDS using the International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS), the revised(More)
Because cord blood (CB) lacks memory T and B cells and recent decreases in herd immunity to vaccine-preventable diseases in many developed countries have been documented, vaccine responses in CB transplantation (CBT) survivors are of great interest. We analyzed vaccine responses in double-unit CBT recipients transplanted for hematologic malignancies. In 103(More)
Umbilical cord blood (UCB) engraftment is in part limited by graft cell dose, generally one log less than that of bone marrow (BM)/peripheral blood (PB) cell grafts. Strategies toward increasing hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell (HSPC) homing to BM have been assessed to improve UCB engraftment. Despite recent progress, a complete understanding of how HSPC(More)
Autoimmune hemolysis (AH) and immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) are recognized complications after cord blood transplantation (CBT). We evaluated the incidence and characteristics of AH/ITP after double-unit CBT in a day 100 landmark analysis of 152 patients (median age 36 years, range 0.9-70 years) transplanted for hematologic malignancies with(More)
OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND Cytomegalovirus (CMV) causes significant morbidity and mortality in CMV seropositive patients undergoing umbilical cord blood transplants (UCBT). Our study aimed to describe the incidence of CMV reactivation and burden of disease, as well as the tolerability of an intensive prevention strategy as compared to historical prevention. (More)
7035 Background: Despite advances in therapy for multiple myeloma, the disease remains incurable using chemotherapy or immune-modulating agents alone. Several newer hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) strategies including tandem HCT, and non- myeloablative (NMA) regimens have reported encouraging results. However, the appropriate timing for utilizing these(More)
Although outpatient autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is safe and feasible in most instances, some patients undergoing planned outpatient transplantation for multiple myeloma (MM) will need inpatient admission for transplantation-related complications. We aim to evaluate the difference, if any, between outpatient and inpatient ASCT cohorts of MM(More)
