Indications and Patterns of Use for Parenteral Nutrition in Pediatric Oncology.

CONCLUSION: Inpatient PN use is common in childhood cancer. Indications include mucositis, feed intolerance, and surgical management. Patterns of use are influenced by cancer diagnosis and treatment, with greater use in children with hematological cancer and HSCT. Improved understanding and specific indications may guide appropriate PN prescription and minimize unnecessary risk, cost, and inconsistency in care.

In this study, we developed a protocol to obtain large-scale NKG2D CAR memory T cells for clinical use by using CliniMACS Prodigy, an automated closed system compliant with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines. CD45RA+ fraction was depleted from healthy donors' non-mobilized apheresis using CliniMACS CD45RA Reagent and CliniMACS Plus device. A total of 108 CD45RA− cells were cultured in TexMACS media supplemented with 100 IU/mL IL-2 and activated at day 0 with T Cell TransAct. Then, we used NKG2D-CD8TM-4-1BB-CD3ζ lentiviral vector for cell transduction (MOI = 2). NKG2D CAR T cells expanded between 10 and...
