A haematopoietic SCT (HSCT) can cause severe side effects, which may have a profound impact on a patient's life both physically and psychologically. Some studies have shown that physical activity has positive effects for inpatients after an HSCT. Therefore, the question arises whether a controlled exercise programme right from the beginning of the(More)
PURPOSE The role of unrelated allogeneic stem-cell transplantation in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients is still not clear, and only limited data are available from the literature. We analyzed factors affecting clinical outcome of ALL patients receiving a related or unrelated stem-cell graft from matched donors. PATIENTS AND METHODS The total(More)
UNLABELLED An allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) can have profound and lasting adverse effects on a patient's physical and psychological well-being. So far, only few studies have investigated the effectiveness of physical activity over the entire inpatient phase of an allogeneic HSCT. PURPOSE We performed a randomized controlled(More)
According to recent reports, fast engraftment with minimal transplant-related toxicity and mortality (TRT, TRM) can be achieved by using reduced-intensity preparative regimens in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We report our experience with related (39%) and unrelated (61%) HSCT in 44 high risk patients (AML, ALL, CML, CLL)(More)
Secondary malignancies after allogeneic stem cell transplantation are a known risk for stem cell recipients. The categories of new malignancies after transplant comprise lymphoproliferative disorders, hematologic malignancies (primarily therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia), and solid tumors. Some reviews summarize incidence(More)
Currently, the most commonly used routes of administration of antiemetics in chemotherapeutic regimens are oral and intravenous. Patient compliance and thus efficacy of conventional drug schedules and formulations are often impaired by difficulties associated with oral or intravenous uptake of the administered chemotherapy. Alternative or new drug delivery(More)
Recognition of two different species in the liverwort genusMonoclea Hook. (monotypic orderMonocleales), viz.M. forsteri Hook. in New Zealand andM. gottschei Lindb. in the New World, is supported by characteristics of the sporophyte, antheridial receptacle and secondary metabolites.M. gottschei produces the greatest variety of flavonoids and the largest(More)
16523 Background: Malignant diseases arising from donor derived cells are an exceptionally rare condition with approximately 20 cases only reported in the literature. We report on diagnosis and salvage chemotherapy of a CML transplant patient relapsing with donor cell derived secondary MDS resp. AML. METHODS Chimerism analysis were performed by(More)
