OBJECTIVE Transplantation of isolated hepatocytes in animal models has been shown to correct inborn errors of metabolism. Based on these studies and our experience with hepatocyte transplantation in a child with Crigler-Najjar syndrome, isolated hepatocyte transplantation was performed to attempt metabolic reconstitution in a male infant with severe(More)
Long-term survival and improved neuropsychological function have occurred in selected children with Hurler syndrome (MPS I H) after successful engraftment with genotypically matched sibling bone marrow transplantation (BMT). However, because few children have HLA-identical siblings, the feasibility of unrelated donor (URD) BMT as a vehicle for adoptive(More)
A female patient with severe idiopathic aplastic anaemia received a successful bone-marrow transplant from her HLA-identical, mixed-lymphocyte-culture-compatible, brother. 8 months after transplantation she had localised cutaneous measles. Chronic sclerodermatous changes developed which were indistinguishable from chronic graft-versus-host disease and were(More)
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) remains the only curative option for most patients with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML). However, persistent disease and relapse rates after transplant range from 26% to 58%. We report the successful use of second HSCT after preparation with mitoxantrone and cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C) for patients(More)
Ten consecutive patients undergoing transplantation of bone marrow from histocompatible siblings for treatment of haematological malignancy took part in a pilot study to test the safety of in-vitro treatment of donor bone marrow with monoclonal antibody OKT3. Three male and seven female patients aged 7-34 years received concentrated bone marrow buffy-coat(More)
