Children and adolescents discharge guidelines after allogeneic stem cell transplantation for healthcare professionals: Recommendations of the Francophone Society of Bone Marrow Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (SFGM-TC).

[Children and adolescents discharge guidelines after allogeneic stem cell transplantation for healthcare professionals: Recommendations of the Francophone Society of Bone Marrow Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (SFGM-TC)]. Bull Cancer. 2019 Apr 15;: Authors: Sirvent A, Delorme J, Godin S, Grain A, Jubert C, Pertuisel S, Pochon C, Tardieu L, Yakoub-Agha I, Dalle JH Abstract Recommendations for visits or environment restrictions, and sometimes for food are usually well described for inpatient within HSCT unit procedures where those measures are less precise and detailed for outpatient from the discharge to the immune reconstitution achievement. The present paper main objective is to define risk patient groups depending on time, immune-suppressive drugs as well as graft-versus-host disease and immune reconstitution. We define here 3 risk patient groups and propose measures about house cleaning, pets, schools, social activities, hygiene, foods, sexual life and siblings.

Conclusions The discovery of JAK2V617F mutation in BCR-ABL1-negative MPNs by four different international cooperative groups in 2005 (2–5) led to significant insights on the pathogenesis of these disorders. In fact, this mutation results in a gain-of-function with activation of cytokine and growth factor receptors, and thus of the downstream JAK-STAT pathway (79, 95–98). The JAK2 point mutation in exon 12, present in a small percentage of patients with PV, is able to induce the MPN phenotype through the same pathogenic mechanism (6, 7). In 2006 the MPLW515L/K was reported in ET and PMF patients (44, 45) and d...

Discussion This case demonstrates successful cure of pre-B-ALL complicating XLA by alloSCT with restoration of B-cell development and functional antibody response. We are aware of only one previous case of pre-B-ALL in an XLA patient (21), which suggests that human BTK deficiency in itself does not predispose to pre-B-ALL. However, there are data to suggest that BTK may act as a tumor suppressor, and BTK deficiency may predispose to tumor development following a “second hit.” Mice with a genetic deficiency in Slp65, a gene encoding an adaptor protein that functions together with BTK, have a block in progenito...

Conclusion: This prospective multicenter study provides information on the current incidence and outcome of IFD in the real life setting. Practice variation between the centers may help to ultimately improve antifungal management in children at highest risk for IFDs. Introduction Available data on the incidence and outcome of invasive fungal diseases (IFD) in children treated for a hematological malignancy or undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are mostly based on single site, retrospective studies or on studies performed prior to the availability of newer compounds such as broad-sp...

Fanconi anemia (FA) is a relatively rare genetic condition with primary sequelae of bone marrow failure, hematologic malignancies, and squamous cell cancers (SCC) of head/neck, breast, and anogenital tract. Many patients require hematopoietic stem cell transplant (bone marrow transplant, BMT) to treat marrow dysfunction, but risk of future malignancies remains. Female patients are at risk of reproductive complications, including infertility related to primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) and gynecologic cancers.

This study didn't measure whether receiving the cardiosphere-derived cells extended lifespans, so we have a lot more work to do. We have much to study, including whether CDCs need to come from a young donor to have the same rejuvenating effects and whether the extracellular vesicles are able to reproduce all the rejuvenating effects we detect with CDCs." Cardiac and systemic rejuvenation after cardiosphere-derived cell therapy in senescent rats Cardiosphere-derived cell (CDC) therapy has exhibited several favourable effects on heart structure and function in humans and in preclinical models; however,...

Conclusion: Taken together, our findings indicate that As3MT acts to promote cardiovascular toxicity of arsenic and suggest that human AS3MT SNPs that correlate with enzyme function could predict those most at risk to develop atherosclerosis among the millions that are exposed to arsenic. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP806 Received: 15 July 2016 Revised: 21 December 2016 Accepted: 21 December 2016 Published: 05 July 2017 Correspondence: K.K.

The UK papers today welcome news of a world first in fertility treatment. As The Guardian concisely summarises: "A young woman in Belgium has become the first to give birth to a healthy baby after having her fertility restored by a transplant of ovarian tissue that was removed and frozen when she was a child". The woman was born with sickle cell anaemia, a serious inherited blood disorder where the red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body, develop abnormally. This can cause severe pain and organ damage. Due to the severity of her condition, a decision was taken to perform a stem cell transplant. This ...

This article is based on a collaborative effort organized by the French Society of Bone Marrow Transplantation and Cell Therapy (SFGM-TC), which took place during the 4th day of allograft harmonization practices. Patients affected are children and young adults (0-25 years). We defined the monitoring effects beyond 1 year post-transplant. Our recommendations are based on a literature review, in line with the Leucémie Enfant Adulte (LEA) study cohort of long-term monitoring of patients treated for hematological malignancies in childhood, grafted or not. It became important to determine the nature of problems...
