Thirty-five of the 38 patients had a serious haematological disorder as the indication for the operation, usually non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or myelofibrosis. All operations were carried out(More)
A study was performed on the family of a child with severe combined immunodeficiency and deficiency of the purine salvage pathway enzyme, adenosine deaminase (ADA). Sixteen relatives over three generations were studied. Erythrocyte ADA levels clearly indicated the heterozygous status of five members. A sixth member, whose erythrocyte ADA level of 48(More)
The platelets of an infant with severe combined immune deficiency and adenosine deaminase deficiency showed markedly diminished responses to ADP-induced aggregation in vitro. This abnormality was corrected by the addition of purified adenosine deaminase in vitro. Exogenous adenosine added to platelet-rich plasma caused markedly prolonged inhibition of(More)
A qualitative platelet defect was demonstrated in a patient with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. His platelets showed impaired aggregation to collagen and arachidonate and absent second wave aggregation to adenosine diphosphate and epinephrine but normal response to ristocetin. These aggregation abnormalities were similar to those reported in idiopathic(More)
