Bone marrow graft recipients suffer profound immunodeficiency during at least 3 months after transplantation. B-cell reconstitution following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) in children was studied longitudinally by quantification of Ig (sub)class levels in serum and by investigation of numbers and characteristics of homogeneous Ig components(More)
We report the outcome of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) as treatment for severe combined immunodeficiency disease (SCID) in 31 patients grafted from 1968 until 1992. The patients received a graft from an HLA-identical related (n = 10), an HLA-haplo-identical related (n = 19), or a closely HLA-matched unrelated (n = 2) donor that resulted in(More)
Growth characteristics of stromal cells, assessed as adherent cells in long-term bone marrow cultures, and of hematopoietic progenitor cells, prior to and shortly after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT), were investigated, more specifically with regard to their possible correlations. The main constituent cells of the bone marrow stroma, that is,(More)
Pediatric recipients (n = 25) of an allogeneic bone marrow (BM) graft were selected on the basis of informative IgG allotype (Gm) differences between the BM donor and the recipient. To investigate the kinetics of the appearance of IgG of donor origin and the disappearance of IgG of recipient origin, G1m and G2m allotype levels were quantified in sera(More)
The in vitro colony formation of hematopoietic progenitor cells of bone marrow samples, taken before and early after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT), was investigated prospectively. In order to circumvent culture-related and sample-related variations, a serum-free recombinant growth factor-replenished culture system was developed using T cell-(More)
