Allogeneic blood transfusion (ABT) therapy plays a major role in the case of patients with cancer. Packed red blood cells (PRBC) are given for increased oxygen-carrying capacity, platelets concentrates (PC) and fresh frozen plasma (FFP) for the cessation and prevention of bleeding due to thrombocytopenia and other defects of hemostasis associated with(More)
From February 2006 to March 2008, 42 pregnant women homozygous for the 677CT-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) allele were recruited in our obstetrics service for pregnancy at risk. All had antithrombotic prophylaxis with low-dose aspirin and/or low-molecular-weight heparin, supplemented with folic acid. In all, 2 women lost the fetus and 4 were(More)
OBJECTIVE This prospective pilot study assesses the recurrence rate and severity of abnormal pregnancy outcome (APO), excluding early pregnancy complications, in pregnant patients, without acquired thrombophilia, treated by prophylactic doses of low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH), independently from their congenital thrombophilic condition. METHODS We(More)
Bleeding occurs in approximately 10% of patients with cancer: supportive transfusion therapy with Platelets Concentrates (PC), Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) and plasma-derived or recombinant concentrates is often required for the cessation and prevention of the bleeding episodes. The most frequent causes of bleeding in cancer is thrombocytopenia followed by(More)
