ConclusionPlerixafor proved effective to mobilize adequate numbers of PBSCs in individual patients with relapsed malignancies after prior single or tandem HDC+PBSCT. These PBSCs could establish sustained multi-lineage hematopoietic engraftment without any sequelae.
ConclusionChemotherapy followed by ASCT using a conditioning regimen of reduced melphalan and pharmacokinetically targeted busulfan is a promising strategy for treating patients with relapsed or refractory DLBCL who also have end-stage renal disease and are receiving hemodialysis.
Background: Patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) have to worsen of functional capacity during hospitalization. However, it is not known whether the respiratory muscle strength is related to functional capacity.Objective: We hypothesized that functional capacity change is correlated to respiratory muscle strength changes in patients during hospitalization for HSCT.Methods: This is a prospective, observational study. Thirty one patients (18 males; 45 years) hospitalized for HSCT were eligible for this study. Respiratory muscle strength (Maximal Inspiratory Pressure - MIP and Maximal Expiratory P...
In this study, around 20% of all patients with HBV reactivation developed HBV reactivation after 2 years from the initiation of therapy, unlike malignant lymphoma. This might be due to the fact that almost all of the patients received chemotherapy for a long duration. Therefore, a new strategy for the prevention of HBV reactivation in MM patients is required.
Abstract Multiple myeloma (MM) is the second most prevalent hematologic malignancy after non-Hodgkin lymphoma and is currently considered incurable. Clinical ophthalmic manifestations of MM are rare but at the same time diverse. Ocular surface manifestations of multiple myeloma are uncommon.Conjunctival 'salmon patch' is a typical ocular surface ophthalmological sign with a distinct set of differential diagnoses, including most often ocular adnexal lymphoma.This case report presents a 33-year-old female with a relapse of MM manifesting as a conjunctival 'salmon patch'. The patient initially responded well to medic...

The evolution of Allogeneic Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (allo-HSCT) as a treatment modality has witnessed the cure of several haematological conditions such as leukaemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes, thalassaemia and aplastic anaemia . The many advances made in this domain, and the availability of excellent post transplant care have ensured increased longevity in recipients of allo-HSCT. It has been demonstrated in previous studies that patients who are disease-free at five years after HSCT have a 10-year survival rate that exceeds 80% .

A treatment strategy of salvage chemotherapy and autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) in relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients receiving hemodialysis has not yet been established. We conducted a pharmacokinetic analysis in a patient with refractory DLBCL with end-stage renal disease and successfully administered adjusted dosing of salvage chemotherapies and a conditioning regimen in ASCT without any adverse events.
