BACKGROUND Over the last 25 years, donor source, conditioning, graft-versus-host disease prevention and supportive care for children undergoing hematopoeitic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) have changed dramatically. HSCT indications for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) now include high-risk patients in first and subsequent remission. There is a large(More)
Vasculitis occurs rarely in association with X-linked lymphoproliferative disease (XLP). There are four published cases of non-EBV XLP-associated cerebral vasculitis reported, none of whom have survived without major cognitive impairment. A 9-year old boy initially presented aged 5 years with a restrictive joint disease. He subsequently developed(More)
LYL1 in human HSPCs reveals patterns of combinatorial TF binding. • Integrative analysis of transcription factor binding reveals a densely interconnected network of coding and non-coding genes in human HSPCs. ABSTRACT Genome-wide combinatorial binding patterns for key transcriptional factors (TFs) have not been reported for primary human hematopoietic(More)
Despite improvements in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), approximately 50% of children die of the disease. Clinical trials in adult patients with AML indicate that idarubicin may have superior efficacy when compared to daunoru-bicin in the remission-induction phases of chemotherapy. We conducted consecutive clinical trials in children with(More)
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is a severe X-linked recessive immune deficiency disorder. A scoring system of Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome severity (0.5-5) distinguishes two phenotypes: X-linked thrombocytopenia and classic Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. Hematopoietic cell transplantation is curative for Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome; however, the use of unrelated umbilical(More)
