Engraftment and OS after umbilical CBT is highly dependent on the TNC. The contribution of the wash step to cell loss and ultimately the dose of cells available for transplant is not well described. To investigate the amount of cell loss after washing and its impact on major outcomes compared to pre-cryopreserved TNC, we analyzed data from patients(More)
BACKGROUND Although children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) mount immune responses after vaccination with the trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV), these responses are lower compared to controls. Recently, a high dose (HD) TIV was found to increase the level of antibody response in elderly patients compared to the standard dose (SD) TIV. We(More)
Overwhelming infection causes significant morbidity and mortality among patients treated with bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for primary immune deficiencies, syndromes of bone marrow failure, or cancer. The polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN; neutrophil) is the first responder to microbial invasion and acts within the innate immune system to contain and(More)
We describe a 7-year-old male with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis who presented with nephrotic syndrome and subsequently developed factor XI (fXI) deficiency. An association between these conditions has not been described previously. In this case, fXI deficiency was caused by an antibody to fXI that enhanced clearance of the protein from plasma.(More)
Clofarabine is a purine nucleoside analog with immunosuppressive and antileukemic activity and its inclusion in reduced-intensity regimens could potentially improve outcomes. We performed a prospective phase I study of clofarabine combined with 2 Gy total body irradiation (TBI) as a nonmyeloablative preparative regimen for allogeneic stem cell(More)
