BACKGROUND Promising results of cord-blood transplants from unrelated donors have been reported in adults. METHODS We compared outcomes in 682 adults with acute leukemia who received a hematopoietic stem-cell transplant from an unrelated donor: 98 received cord blood and 584 received bone marrow. The transplantations were performed from 1998 through 2002(More)
In 1997, the first consensus guidelines for haematopoietic SCT (HSCT) in autoimmune diseases (ADs) were published, while an international coordinated clinical programme was launched. These guidelines provided broad principles for the field over the following decade and were accompanied by comprehensive data collection in the European Group for Blood and(More)
PURPOSE Reduced intensity conditioning regimen (RIC) is increasingly used in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Unrelated donor (UD) transplants have more complications. We wanted to examine if RIC is a valid treatment option using UD in acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 1999 and 2005, 401 patients with AML were(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES We analyzed outcomes and risk factors after unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT) in adults with hematologic malignancies. DESIGN AND METHODS One hundred and seventy-one patients were transplanted after 1997. Their median age was 29 years (15-55), and the median follow-up time was 18 months (1-71). Most patients had acute or(More)
IMPORTANCE Case reports and series suggest hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) may benefit some patients with Crohn disease. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of autologous HSCT on refractory Crohn disease. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Parallel-group randomized clinical trial conducted in 11 European transplant units from July 2007 to(More)
Fifty-nine European teams have reported 919 autografts for the consolidation of acute myelocytic leukemia (AML) up to December 31, 1989. The distribution for autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) was 671 in first complete remission (CR1) and 196 in CR2. Pretransplantation regimes were: total-body irradiation (TBI), 456; busulfan plus(More)
We conducted a retrospective registry-based analysis to compare the outcome of 361 allogeneic human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-identical peripheral blood stem cell transplants (PBSCT) with reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) to that of 1369 autologous (auto) PBSCT in patients aged 50 years or older with de novo acute myeloid leukemia (AML), performed from(More)
Graft failure is a major complication after unrelated cord blood transplantation. Presence of HLA-antibodies before cord blood transplantation may impact graft failure. To analyze the effect of anti-HLA antibodies on unrelated cord blood transplantation outcomes, we analyzed 294 unrelated cord blood transplant recipients after reduced intensity conditioning(More)
The aim of this multicenter retrospective analysis was to carry out a survey of overall outcomes after allo-hematopoietic SCT of AML patients harboring trisomy 8 (+8) as the sole chromosomal abnormality or associated with other abnormalities. We have identified 182 de novo AML patients who underwent allo-hematopoietic SCT between 1990 and 2007 exhibiting(More)
We report outcomes after single (s) and double (d) umbilical cord blood transplantation (UCBT) after myeloablative conditioning (MAC) regimen for 239 patients transplanted for acute leukemia in first complete remission (CR1). All sUCBT patients received a total nucleated cell dose >2.5 × 10(7)/kg. Conditioning regimen for sUCBT was total body irradiation(More)
