The treatment of relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (RR-ALL) presents a true clinical challenge. In 2012, a protocol combining bortezomib, dexamethasone, asparaginase, doxorubicin, and vincristine administered to children with RR-ALL was published with encouraging results. Over the past 5 years, we have implemented this protocol in the adult RR-ALL population (#x3e; 18 years) and addressed its feasibility in terms of remission rate and toxicity. Here, we present the results of our experience in 9 patients, all of whom received multiple previous chemotherapy protocols, two of them relapsing after an allogeneic...

ConclusionAARC-ACLF and CLIF–SOFA models are superior to other prognostic scores in pediatric ACLF. The scores are dynamic and a patient with either of these scores ≥ 11 at admission and/or a rising score at day 4 has high likelihood of death and needs to be urgently listed for liver transplantation.
Authors: Jacob Arriola KR, Redmond N, Williamson DHZ, Thompson NJ, Perryman JP, Patzer RE, Williams M Abstract BACKGROUND: Transplantation continues to be the therapy of choice for people experiencing end-stage organ failure. African Americans (AAs) are overrepresented among those awaiting an available organ for the purpose of a transplant, yet donate at rates lower than other races due to a list of well-studied barriers. The Giving ACTS (About Choices in Transplantation and Sharing) Intervention was developed to provide culturally appropriate messaging to AAs about organ and tissue donation and transplantation (OT...

Authors: Liu C, Han M, Zhao L, Zhu M, Xu Q, Song Y, Wang H Abstract OBJECTIVE: This research aimed to explore the significance of low activity of ADAMTS-13 in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) after bone morrow transplantation (BMT), and to evaluate the disease progress and prognosis of the patients with low or normal activity of ADAMTS-13 after BMT. METHODS: 46 AML patients were included in our research. ADAMTS-13 activity was measured before BMT. Their medical indicators were recorded one month after BMT. All the patients were followed up and their disease progression was evaluated afterwards. The medical indicato...
