We present the clinical case of a 26 year-old male with dendritic ulcers in his cornea, marrow aplasia and idiopathic chronic lymphedema. He was diagnosed with GATA2 deficiency. GATA2 gene is critical for the genesis and function of hematopoietic stem cells. Its deficiency can cause myelodysplastic syndromes, congenital lymphedema and severe viral infections. Our patient presented these three manifestations, added to a deletion in 20q12 that confirmed the suspicion of GATA2 mutation. A bone marrow transplant was suggested as definitive treatment. The corneal herpetic epithelial lesion was analogous to a regular hepetic ker...

Gamida Cell said today that the first patient has been transplanted in a study of its CordIn product for patients with severe aplastic anemia or hypoplastic myelodysplastic syndrome. The product is designed for patients with rare genetic diseases who have no fully-matched donors for a bone marrow transplantation. Gamida Cell said it is also evaluating its CordIn therapy for patients with sickle cell disease. Get the full story at our sister site, Drug Delivery Business News.

Abstract Older recipient and donor age were associated with higher incidences of severe graft‐versus‐host disease (GVHD) and mortality after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from matched sibling donors (MSDs) and matched unrelated donors. Since a lower incidence of severe GVHD is advantageous in unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT), a higher incidence of GVHD using older MSDs could be overcome using cord blood for older patients. We retrospectively analyzed Japanese registration data of 2,091 patients with acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), and myelodysplastic syndrome a...
The recovery pace of absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) is prognostic after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Previous studies have evaluated a wide range of ALC cutoffs and time points for predicting outcomes. We aimed to determine the optimal ALC value for outcome prediction after bone marrow transplantation (BMT). A total of 518 patients who underwent BMT for acute leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome between 1999 and 2010 were divided into a training set and a test set to assess the prognostic value of ALC on days 30, 60, 90, 120, 180, as well as the first post-transplantation day of an ALC of 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and 1000/μL.
