Collection and transplantation of peripheral blood stem cells in very small children weighting 20 kg or less.
TLDR
Harvesting PBSC in very small children with active cancers is effective and safe and does not involve the risk of anesthesia or multiple invasive marrow aspirations.
Experience with peripheral blood stem cell collection for autografts in children with active cancer.
TLDR
The results extend the earlier findings that harvesting PBSCs for autografts in children with active cancer is a safe and reliable procedure with a low incidence of serious morbidity.
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (CSF), macrophage-CSF, granulocyte-macrophage CSF, interleukin-3, and interleukin-6 levels in sera from children undergoing blood stem cell autografts.
TLDR
The role of endogenously secreted cytokines in early hematopoietic recovery after PBSCT needs further clarification, but, at present, routine use of exogenous G-CSF therapy is not recommended.
Toxicities associated with cryopreserved and thawed peripheral blood stem cell autografts in children with active cancer
TLDR
The data suggest that transient toxicity associated with PBSC autografts is rather common in children, and close observation of patients for possible serious morbidity is required.
Production of interleukin 3 and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor from stimulated blood mononuclear cells in patients with aplastic anemia.
TLDR
The level of IL-3 returned to normal after successful treatment with ALG plus methylprednisolone (ALG therapy) and the ALG/PHA index might have an ability to predict the response to ALG therapy.
Measurement of serum levels of macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) in patients with uremia.
TLDR
It is postulate that the elevated M-CSF serum level in uremic patients is in part a consequence of the dialysis procedure and that rhEpo therapy is more effective in patients who are under sophisticated dialysis protocol and have a lower M- CSF level.
Assessment of plaque rupture by intravascular ultrasound.
TLDR
Intravascular ultrasound can provide detailed observations of plaque rupture consistent with pathologic studies and is a suitable method for evaluation of plaque rupture in vivo, it is concluded.
[Clinical toxicity at the infusion of cryopreserved and thawed peripheral blood stem cell grafts in children].
TLDR
Vomiting was the only toxic feature related to the amount of DMSO, however, eight patients developed transient shock, but recovered shortly afterward with or without supportive therapy.
Plaque rupture as a cause of apparent coronary aneurysm formation following directional coronary atherectomy.
Late coronary aneurysm formation was observed following treatment by directional coronary atherectomy. Intravascular ultrasound disclosed that the mechanism involved was plaque rupture. The cause of
