Adenovirus infection during stem cell transplantation is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Adenovirus species B and C have been the main causes for these infections; however, epidemiological details about the species are still unclear. To clarify the contributions of species B and C adenovirus, the DNA was tested serially by quantitative(More)
Cerebral injury is a critical aspect of the management of patients in intensive care. Pathological conditions induced by cerebral ischemia, hypoxia, head trauma, and seizure activity can result in marked residual impairment of cerebral function. We have investigated the potential mechanisms leading to neuronal cell death in pathological conditions, with the(More)
Polyoma BK virus (BKV) is frequently found in the urine of stem cell transplantation (SCT) patients with hemorrhagic cystitis (HC), but also occurs in SCT patients without HC. How BK viruria relates to the development of HC in SCT patients, especially in children, has not yet been fully evaluated. In the present study, we analyzed the relationship of(More)
We describe 2 cases of conventional therapy-resistant multiple myeloma (MM) that responded to bortezomib and dexamethasone therapy. Case 1: A 62-year-old woman with MM (IgG, kappa-type, stage IIIA) resistant to DMVM-IFN (dexamethasone, ranimustine, vincristine, melphalan, interferon-a), VAD (vincristine, doxorubicin, dexamethasone), high-dose melphalan with(More)
BK polyomavirus (BKV) is ubiquitous among humans, usually infecting them asymptomatically during childhood. BKV persists in renal tissue of individuals and their progeny are excreted in urine, particularly in immunocompromised patients. JC virus, another human polyomavirus, has been considered to be transmitted from parents to children during prolonged(More)
