The immune cells of the brain are somewhat different in character and function from those of the body. They have a greater portfolio of tasks beyond chasing down pathogens, clearing out waste, and assisting in regeneration. For example, the immune cells known as microglia are involved in the maintenance of synaptic connections between neurons. Interestingly, microglia are not produced in the bone marrow by stem cells or progenitor cells, so in the research here in which young bone marrow is transplanted into old mice, one can be fairly sure that any beneficial effects on microglia result from signaling differences on the p...

Authors: Braun OÖ, Nilsson J, Gustafsson F, Dellgren G, Fiane AE, Lemström K, Hubbert L, Hellgren L, Lund LH Abstract OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess complications and mortality and its predictors, with continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (CF-LVADs) in the Nordic Countries. DESIGN: This was a retrospective, international, multicenter cohort study. RESULTS: Between 1993 - 2013 442 surgically implanted long-term mechanical assist devices were used among 8 centers in the Nordic countries. Of those, 238 were CF-LVADs (HVAD or HeartMate II) implanted in patients>18 ye...

Authors: Najjar E, Ljung Faxén U, Hage C, Donal E, Daubert JC, Linde C, Lund LH Abstract OBJECTIVES: Soluble suppression of tumorigenecity 2 (sST2) is prognostic in acute and chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) but less studied in HF with preserved EF (HFpEF). We evaluated sST2 concentrations, correlations with biomarkers and echocardiographic measures of diastolic and systolic function, and associations with outcomes in HFpEF and HFrEF. DESIGN AND RESULTS: A total of 193 subjects from three different cohorts were included. Eighty-six HFpEF patients were obtained from the Karolin...

Although short tandem repeat (STR) method is widely used among clinical laboratories, quantitative PCR (qPCR) provides better sensitivity (0.1%) than STR (1% to 5%), but is less accurate than STR for patients in mixed chimerism. qPCR chimerism test allows evaluation of residual recipient cell...

DISCUSSION: An extensive search of the medical literature found very few papers about ESRD, dialysis, or renal transplant that mentioned the race of the patients before 1975. While the search did not reveal whether race was explicitly used in determining patient access to dialysis or transplant, the scant data that exist show that African-Americans disproportionately developed ESRD and were underrepresented in these early treatment populations. Transplant outcome data in the United States failed to include race demographics until the late 1970s. The Social Security Act of 1972 (PL 92-603) extended Medicare coverage to almo...

We examined immune reconstitution (T, B, and NK cells and dendritic cells) at defined time points in a pediatric cohort who underwent 61 allogeneic HSCTs. Results: Regarding DC reconstitution we found a fast reconstitution of the DC compartment negatively correlated with age. After HSCT, both myeloid DC (mDC) and plasmacytoid DC (pDC) counts recover to pre-HSCT levels within 2 months. Higher CCR7 positive cell counts were found in patients receiving TBI during engraftment and during the whole posttransplant period we found a correlation with an improved outcome. In cGVHD patients decreased total DC counts and increased ...

Conclusions: Patient-related factors, such as age over 9 years and ALL were associated with IGTNs. This is the first report of a survey on IGTNs in patients with hematologic malignancies and solid tumors hospitalized for chemotherapy and stem cell transplantation.

ConclusionAdvancements in hair restoration technologies implementing robotics, manual, or motorized follicular unit extraction have facilitated optimization of outcomes. Adjuvant treatment modalities including robotics and platelet-rich plasma injections have shown utility in augmenting transplantation.
