Intensive Consolidation with G ‐CSF Support: Tolerability, Safety, Reduced Hospitalization, and Efficacy in AML Patients ≥60 Years
Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of intensified consolidation therapy employing fludarabine and ARA‐C in cycle 1 and intermediate‐dose ARA‐C (IDAC) in cycles 2 through 4, in elderly acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients and to analyze the effects of pegfilgrastim on the duration of neutropenia, overall toxicity, and hospitalisation‐time during consolidation in these patients. Thirty nine elderly patients with de novo AML (median age 69.9 years) who achieved complete remission (CR) after induction‐chemotherapy were analyzed. To examine the effect of pegfilgrastim on neutr...

Prospective Evaluation Of Chronic Organ Damage In Adult Sickle Cell Patients. A Seven ‐Year Follow‐Up Study
In conclusion, 62% of the sickle cell patients in this prospective cohort study developed a new SCD‐related complication in a comprehensive care setting within 7 years of follow‐up. Although the hospital admission rate for VOC remained stable, multiple forms of organ damage increased substantially. These observations underline the need for continued screening for organ damage in all adult patients with SCD. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

A re ‐appraisal of the benefit‐risk profile of Hydroxyurea in polycythemia vera: A propensity‐matched study
Abstract The use of Hydroxyurea (HU) as first line therapy in polycythemia vera (PV) has been criticized because no solid demonstration that this drug prevents thrombosis or prolongs survival has been so far produced. Here we present the outcomes of a large cohort of patients with PV included in the European Collaborative Low‐dose Aspirin (ECLAP) study. We selected 1,042 patients who, during the follow‐up, had received only phlebotomy (PHL) or HU to maintain the hematocrit level

Transformation in pretreatment manifestations of Gaucher disease type 1 during two decades of alglucerase/imiglucerase enzyme replacement therapy in the International Collaborative Gaucher Group (ICGG) Gaucher Registry
This study tests the hypothesis that the prevalence of severe clinical manifestations in Gaucher disease type 1 (GD1) patients at the time of treatment initiation has changed since alglucerase/imiglucerase enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) was approved in the United States (US) in 1991. US alglucerase/imiglucerase‐treated GD1 patients from the International Collaborative Gaucher Group Gaucher Registry clinicaltrials.gov NCT00358943 were stratified by age at ERT initiation (

ITACA: A New Validated International Erythropoietic Stimulating Agent ‐Response Score that Further Refines the Predictive Power of Previous Scoring Systems
Abstract Background: In ‘real‐life', the Nordic score guides ESA use in lower‐risk MDS with predicted response rates of 25% or 74%. As new treatments emerge, a more discriminating score is needed. Objectives: To validate existing ESA predictive scores and develop a new score that identifies non‐responders. Methods: ESA‐treated patients were identified in 3 MDS registries in Italy and Canada (FISM 555, GROM 233, MDS‐CAN 208). Clinical and disease‐related variables were captured. Nordic, MDS‐CAN and IPSS‐R‐based ESA scores were calculated and documented ESA responses compared. Results: 996 ESA‐treat...

History of consolidation is prognostic in AML patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation in minimal residual disease ‐negative first complete remission
Conclusions: In AML patients undergoing allo‐HCT in MRD‐negative CR1 state, a history of prior consolidation was associated with favorable outcomes. If the path to pre‐HCT MRD negativity includes consolidation, it may identify patients with improved prognosis following HCT in MRD‐negative state. These results warrant validation in larger cohorts.

A prospective cohort (2006‐2015) of 200 consecutive patients with MDS were included in the study series and categorized according to the IPSS‐R. Patients were further stratified according to patient condition (assessed using the multidimensional Lee index for older adults) and genetic mutations (peripheral blood samples screened using next‐generation sequencing).

Implementation of multidisciplinary care reduces maternal mortality in women with sickle cell disease living in low ‐resource setting
Abstract Sickle cell disease (SCD) is associated with adverse pregnancy outcome. In women with SCD living in low‐resource settings, pregnancy is associated with significantly increased maternal and perinatal mortality rates. We tested the hypothesis that implementing a multidisciplinary obstetric and hematology care team in a low‐resource setting would significantly reduce maternal and perinatal mortality rates. We conducted a before‐and‐after study, at the Korle‐Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana, to evaluate the effect of a multidisciplinary obstetric‐hematology care team for women with SCD in a combined SC...

Clinical impact of pretransplant use of multiple tyrosine kinase inhibitors on the outcome of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for chronic myelogenous leukemia
Abstract Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are widely used to treat patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia in the chronic phase (CML‐CP), and outcomes of TKI treatment for patients with CML‐CP have been excellent. Since multiple TKIs are currently available, second‐line or third‐line TKI therapy is considered for patients who are intolerant of or resistant to the previous TKI treatment. Therefore, allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo‐HSCT) is considered only for patients with disease progression or for patients after treatment failure with multiple TKIs. To reflect the current clinical sit...
