Following the closure of the National Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in Dublin, because of an outbreak of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal infection, a survey was carried out by the EBMT to investigate the occurrence of outbreaks of infection in SCT units and the impact on patient morbidity, mortality and the administration of the transplant(More)
Seventy-nine females undergoing allogeneic BMT following conditioning with total body irradiation (TBI), were prospectively followed between March 1983 and March 1992 with regular gynaecological examinations, including plasma levels of luteinising hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), 17-beta oestradiol (E2) and pelvic ultrasonography.

Antibody to the recently identified hepatitis C virus was investigated in sera of 128 patients treated with allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, to determine the prevalence of HCV infection and its role in post-transplant liver complications. The overall prevalence of anti-HCV positivity was 28.6% (38/128 patients). The presence of pretransplant anti-HCV(More)
The role of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in severe liver failure (LF) following bone marrow transplantation is still uncertain. We therefore decided to determine the presence of HCV-RNA in 31 patients who died of severe LF after BMT and in 26 matched BMT controls who did not develop LF. HCV-RNA was identified by polymerase chain reaction and anti-HCV(More)
The SAA Registry of the EBMT now contains data on 171 children younger than 15 years of age with acquired SAA and undergoing BMT between 1970 and 1988. The overall actuarial survival is 63% at 10 years. In a multivariate Cox analysis, the year of transplant was the most important prognostic factor with a significant advantage for children grafted in 1984-88(More)
