We investigated efficacy and toxicity of lenalidomide in 24 heavily pretreated myeloma patients with a median age of 59 years (range: 37–70) and relapse after allo-SCT. Lenalidomide was given at a dose of 15 mg (n=4), or 25 mg (n=20), orally once daily on day 1 to day 1 every 28 days, with (n=20) or without (n=4) DHAP. The median number of lenalidomide(More)
The European Myeloma Network (EMN) organized two flow cytometry workshops. The first aimed to identify specific indications for flow cytometry in patients with monoclonal gammopathies, and consensus technical approaches through a questionnaire-based review of current practice in participating laboratories. The second aimed to resolve outstanding technical(More)
To improve the antimyeloma effect of donor lymphocyte infusion (DLI) after allogeneic stem cell transplantation in multiple myeloma, we investigated in a phase 1/2 study the effect of low-dose thalidomide (100 mg) followed by DLI in 18 patients with progressive disease or residual disease and prior ineffective DLI after allografting. The overall response(More)
Stem cells are interesting candidates as a new source for cell/organ culture or cell transplantation concepts. So far it is believed that the hepatoblast is the common progenitor cell during fetal liver development. In previous studies two distinct fractions of liver cells were found during development: cells co-expressing Thy1 and CK-18 (cytokeratin-18)(More)
We retrospectively analyzed outcomes of a CD34(+)-selected stem cell boost (SCB) without prior conditioning in 32 patients (male/22; median age of 54 years; range, 20 to 69) with poor graft function, defined as neutrophils ≤1.5 x 10(9)/L, and/or platelets ≤30 x 10(9)/L, and/or hemoglobin ≤8.5 g/dL). The median interval between stem cell transplantation and(More)
Hepatic stem cells have been identified in adult liver. Recently, the origin of hepatic progenitors and hepatocytes from bone marrow was demonstrated. Hematopoietic and hepatic stem cells share the markers CD 34, c-kit, and Thy1. Little is known about liver stem cells during liver development. In this study, we investigated the potential stem cell marker(More)
Immunocytochemical analysis revealed that different hepatic cell types exist during liver development: (i). cells co-expressing the stem-cell marker Thy1 and the hepatic lineage marker CK-18 and (ii). cells only expressing CK-18 (hepatoblasts). In this study we separated the different hepatic cells and analyzed gene-expression and phenotype. Fetal rat(More)
We evaluated immune recovery in 67 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with a median age of 40 years (4-69) following allo-SCT after reduced (n = 35) or myeloablative (n = 32) conditioning. The following lymphocyte populations were determined on days +30, +90, +180, +270, and +365 by flow associated cell sorting: CD3+, CD3+CD4+, CD3+CD8+,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate lineage-specific chimerism of plasma cells after allogeneic transplantation by real-time PCR based on bi-allelic sequence polymorphism or, in case of female-to-male transplantation, on the detection of the DFFRY gene and to determine its value to quantify minimal residual disease in myeloma patients. METHODS Forty-eight samples(More)
The origin of liver cells from distinct bone marrow stem cells, eg, hematopoietic stem cells or multipotent adult progenitor cells has been recently described using in vitro studies. Cell culture experiments revealed the key role of growth factors and the organ-specific environment for the induction of liver-specific genes. We investigated the in vitro(More)
