In 87 patients with aplastic anemia who failed to respond to immunosuppressive treatment, we determined the minimal dose of total body irradiation (TBI) required when added to antithymocyte globulin (ATG, 30 mg/kg x 3) plus cyclophosphamide (CY, 50 mg/kg x 4) to achieve engraftment of unrelated donor marrow. TBI was started at 3 x 200 cGy, to be escalated(More)
A prospective multicenter trial was conducted to evaluate the safety and feasibility of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF)-primed bone marrow (G-BM) in children receiving allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). A total of 42 children with a median age of 9.8 years (range, 0.8-17 years) were enrolled. Donors with median age of 9.2 years(More)

We present here a novel case of an atypical Omenn syndrome (OS) phenotype due to mutations in the ADA gene encoding adenosine deaminase. This case is noteworthy for a significant increase in circulating CD56(bright)CD16- cytokine-producing NK cells after treatment with steroids for skin rash.
