Authors: Şovrea AS, Boşca AB, Constantin AM, Dronca E, Ilea A Abstract Nowadays, adipose tissue appears to be the most valuable source in regenerative cell therapy, due to the following characteristics: high accessibility, high expression in a large number of individuals, high self-renewal and ability to differentiate, and hematopoietic support to the implant area. Its therapeutic potential has been experimentally observed in a broad spectrum of diseases with high population impact: diabetes, myocardial infarction, Parkinson disease, bone fractures, facial reconstruction or loss of subcutaneous tissue due to cong...

Authors: Croome KP, Lee DD, Burns JM, Perry DK, Nguyen JH, Keaveny AP, Wadei HM, Taner CB Abstract INTRODUCTION AND AIM: Many transplant programs have expanded eligibility to include patients previously ineligible because of advanced age. Outcomes of simultaneous liver-kidney transplantation (SLK) in recipients with advanced age are not known. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Data from patients undergoing transplantation between 2002 and 2015 were obtained from the UNOS Standard Analysis and Research file. RESULTS: SLK recipients aged ≥ 65 years (N = 677), SLK recipients aged

For many patients with hematologic malignancies or non-malignant diseases, AlloHCT is the preferred treatment option. Many factors influence whether a patient eligible for transplant will go on to receive a transplant. Patients need to have a disease status that renders them eligible to receive a transplant, have a suitable performance status and organ function, and have an available donor. In addition, many sociodemographic variables such as insurance coverage might impair access to AlloHCT [1].

For many patients with hematologic malignancies or nonmalignant diseases, allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (alloHCT) is the preferred treatment option. Numerous factors influence whether a patient eligible for transplantation actually go on to undergo transplantation. Patients need to have a disease status that renders them eligible for alloHCT, have suitable performance status and organ function, and have an available donor. In addition, various sociodemographic variables, such as insurance coverage, might impair access to alloHCT [1].

The objective is to compare clinical and morphological features in patients with cardiac sarcoidosis severe enough to warrant OHT with –vs-without non-caseating granulomas in the explanted heart. The study was conducted at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. From a total of 671 explanted hearts examined from 1993 to 2018, twenty-five (4%) had gross morphologic features characteristic of cardiac sarcoidosis.

CONCLUSION: Autologous LSCT is a safe and effective treatment for unilateral LSCD. In the absence of randomised controlled trials, existing evidence clearly suggests that clinical outcomes are better with SLET and CLAu as compared with CLET. PMID: 31118185 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
