Authors: Szostak B, Machaj F, Rosik J, Pawlik A Abstract Background: Umbilical cord blood transplantation is an effective method of curing multiple diseases when there is no donor available for allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT). It has been recently suggested that polymorphisms in genes affecting antigen presentation could potentially affect cord blood transplantation (CBT) outcomes. Areas covered: In this review we present the results of the latest studies investigating the link between CTLA4 gene variability and umbilical cord blood transplantation outcomes. Expert opinion: The search for ...
Despite attempts to increase donation rates after death, organ scarcity accounts for mortality rates of 5 –20% in transplant centres. From the ethical perspective anonymous live liver donation (A-LLD) is extremely difficult to introduce into clinical practice. Goldaracena et al. report the results of a pioneering programme of 50 A-LLDs undertaken at the Toronto General hospital over a 12-year period. Their carefully conducted study showed that anonymous donation was provided by individuals for altruistic reasons and none of the donors regretted their decision.

Authors: Barcelos STA, Dall'Oglio VM, de Araújo A, Cerski CTS, Álvares-da-Silva MR Abstract Hepatic sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (HSOS) is a hepatic vascular disease histologically characterized by edema, necrosis, detachment of endothelial cells in small sinusoidal hepatic and interlobular veins and intrahepatic congestion, which leads to portal hypertension and liver dysfunction. In the Western world, most HSOS cases are associated with myeloablative pretreatment in a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation setting. Here we report a case of a 54 years old female patient, otherwise healthy, with n...

CONCLUSION These observations demonstrate that immune control following ACT requires significant repertoire remodeling, which may be impaired in nonresponders because of the preexisting immune environment. Immunological interventions that can modulate this environment may improve clinical outcomes.TRIAL REGISTRATION Australian New Zealand Clinical Trial Registry, ACTRN12613000981729.FUNDING This study was supported by funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council, Australia (APP1132519 and APP1062074).
Conclusion: Nontransporting emergency medical service vehicles have the potential for inclusion in the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation network of the study area.
