CIBMTR previously showed that centralized PRO collection from patients treated at multiple transplant centers (TC) was feasible; however, consenting by sites and the paper mode of collection were logistically challenging. CIBMTR built an electronic system (ePRO), and we report our initial experience.

Despite increasing donor options for allogeneic transplantation, including matched/mismatched related donors, matched unrelated donors and cord blood units, a proportion of patients do not find a donor. This is especially relevant in patients from racial/ethnic minorities. Post-transplant cyclophosphamide (PTCY) has successfully overcome barriers related to HLA-mismatching in the related donor setting. We hypothesized that transplantation with a mismatched unrelated donor (MMUD) using PTCY would be feasible and associated with high engraftment and acceptable GVHD incidence.

Decisions about research priorities are made based on what are thought to be the most pressing scientific questions, in the context of current knowledge and perceived advances. However, research moves slowly while real-world experience accumulates and new approaches are introduced. Adoption of new practices before they have been adequately compared to current treatments are threats to successful conduct of the studies and may expose patients to what is ultimately learned to be inferior treatment.

AbstractThe aim of this study was to evaluate the photobiomodulation of red and green lights in the repair process of third-degree skin burns in rats through clinicopathological and immunohistochemical parameters. Sixty male Wistar rats were divided into three groups: control (CTRL) (n = 20), red LED (RED) (n = 20), and green LED (GREEN) (n = 20), with subgroups (n = 5) for each time of euthanasia (7, 14, 21, and 28 days). Daily applications in RED (λ630  ± 10 nm, 300 mW) and GREEN groups (λ520  ± ...

(MILAN) — The eruption of Mount Vesuvius turned an incinerated victim’s brain material into glass, the first time scientists have verified the phenomenon from a volcanic blast, officials at the Herculaneum archaeology site said Thursday. Archaeologists rarely recover human brain tissue, and when they do it is normally smooth and soapy in consistency, according to an article detailing the discovery in the New England Journal of Medicine. The eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 instantly killed the inhabitants of Pompeii and neighboring Herculaneum, burying an area 20 kilometers (12 miles) from the volcano in ash...

This study aimed to develop a novel scale, predicting the need for Delayed Intubation after inhalation injury (PDI) score.MethodsWe retrospectively identified patients with inhalation injury at four tertiary care centers in Japan between 2012 and 2018. We included patients aged 15 or older and excluded those intubated within 30 min after hospital arrival. Predictors for delayed intubation were identified with univariate analyses and scored on the basis of odds ratios. The PDI score was evaluated with the area under the receiver operating characteristic (AUROC) curve and compared with other scaling systems for burn injuries...
