Nonpermissive HLA-DPB1 mismatch increases mortality after myeloablative unrelated allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation.
We examined current outcomes of unrelated donor allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) to determine the clinical implications of donor-recipient HLA matching. Adult and pediatricExpand

Defining incidence, risk factors, and impact on survival of central line-associated blood stream infections following hematopoietic cell transplantation in acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic
Central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSI) commonly complicate the care of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) after allogeneic stem cellExpand

Long-term survival after high-dose chemotherapy with autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation in metastatic breast cancer.
OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND The most common indication for high-dose chemotherapy (HDC) and autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (AHCT) in the 1990s was breast cancer. Several randomized trials andExpand

Risk factors for vancomycin-resistant enterococcus bacteremia and its influence on survival after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation
Vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE) is a well-known infectious complication among immunocompromised patients. We performed a retrospective analysis to identify risk factors for the development ofExpand

Association of socioeconomic status with long-term outcomes in 1-year survivors of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation
The relationship of socioeconomic status (SES) with long-term outcomes in allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) survivors has not been well described. We studied the association of SESExpand

Plasma/serum levels of flt3 ligand are low in normal individuals and highly elevated in patients with Fanconi anemia and acquired aplastic anemia.
The flt3 ligand is a growth factor that stimulates the proliferation of hematopoietic progenitor and stem cells. We established a sensitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to measure theExpand

Reduced-intensity conditioning for hematopoietic cell transplant for HLH and primary immune deficiencies.
Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) with myeloablative conditioning for disorders associated with excessive inflammation such as hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is associatedExpand

Fractures in children with Pompe disease: a potentiallong-term complication
BackgroundPompe disease (glycogen storage disease type II or acid maltase deficiency) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme acid α-glucosidase (GAA). ClassicExpand

Prognostic Factors for Mortality among Day +100 Survivors after Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation.
Although day +100 survival among allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) recipients has improved over time, longer-term survival remains a challenge. The aim of this study was to identifyExpand
