Authors: Lee SS, McCue D, Pemmaraju N Abstract INTRODUCTION: Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) is a rare, aggressive hematologic malignancy that previously lacked standardized therapeutic approaches. CD123 (interleukin-3 receptor alpha unit) is highly expressed in many hematologic malignancies, including BPDCN. Tagraxofusp-ezrs (tagraxofusp from herein) is an agent that consists of interleukin-3 fused to a truncated diphtheria toxin, targeting CD123. The Food and Drug Administration recently approved tagraxofusp as therapy for BPDCN for adults and children aged 2 years and older. AREAS COVERE...
Authors: Sun YQ, Li SQ, Zhao XS, Chang YJ Abstract INTRODUCTION: Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) remains a curable strategy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), especially for adult cases. However, leukemia relapse after allograft restricts the improvement of transplant outcomes. Measurable residual disease (MRD) has been the strongest predictor for relapse after allo-HSCT, allowing MRD-directed preemptive therapy. AREAS COVERED: This manuscript summarizes the detection of MRD in patients with ALL who undergo allo-HSCT, focusing the effects of positive pre-HSCT MRD and post-HSC...

CONCLUSION Higher doses of phenylephrine were an independent predictor of DGF. With the exception of phenylephrine, the selection and dose of vasopressor during donor management did not predict the development of DGF. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Prognostic study, Level III.
Psychologists say anxiety and uncertainty prompt irrational decisions — like turning down a transplant when an organ becomes available.

CONCLUSION: the increase of RI during the first weeks of the postoperative period seems to be associated with DGF and with tubular necrosis / tubular vacuolization in peri-implantation biopsies, likely related to ischemia reperfusion injury. PMID: 32459281 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The absolute number of patients and rates of incidence and prevalence in dialysis in the country increased substantially in the period, although there are considerable differences in rates by state. There has been a persistent increase in the use of venous catheters as an access for dialysis; and reduction in the number of patients with positive serology for hepatitis C.

Abstract After acute treatment of deep vein thrombosis, not only the risk but also associated side effects of postthrombotic syndrome (PTS) are often underestimated.There are essentially two main types of PTS.1. Obstructive type-no sufficient recanalization of the deep vein.2. Refluctive type-sufficient recanalization of the deep vein, but insufficient venous valves in conjunction with venous reflux.A statement regarding deep vein recanalization and venous valve function can be made at the earliest after 6 months.PTS is often diagnosed without appropriate medical history. However, the assessment of the degree of r...
