Glucose ‐6‐Phosphate‐Dehydrogenase Deficient Red Blood Cell Units are Associated with Decreased Post‐Transfusion Red Blood Cell Survival in Children with Sickle Cell Disease
Abstract Chronic transfusion therapy (CTT) for sickle cell disease (SCD) reduces disease morbidity by suppressing the amount of circulating hemoglobin S (HbS)‐containing red blood cells (RBC). The effectiveness of CTT depends on the rate of RBC clearance. Glucose‐6‐phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficient donor RBC may exhibit increased hemolysis, but it is unknown if transfusion of these units results in less effective transfusion outcomes in SCD. Children with SCD on CTT were followed prospectively for multiple transfusions. G6PD activity of transfused units was measured prior to expiration date. HbA clearance (&De...

Toward complement inhibition 2.0: Next generation anticomplement agents for paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria
Abstract Therapeutic complement inhibition by eculizumab has revolutionized the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) with a major impact on its natural history. Nevertheless, emerging unmet clinical needs may benefit from the development of novel complement inhibitors. Novel strategies of complement inhibition exploit different agents targeting C5, as well as compound intercepting the complement cascade at the level of its key component C3, or even upstream at the level of components involved in complement alternative pathway initiation. Many of these agents are already in their clinical development; prel...

Age is a predictor of a small decrease in lung function in children with sickle cell anemia
Abstract The longitudinal pattern of lung function in children with sickle cell anemia (SCA) has shown a decrease in FEV1% predicted, a risk factor for death in adults with SCA, but predictors for this decline are poorly characterized. In a prospective longitudinal multi‐center cohort of children with SCA, we tested the hypotheses that: (1) FEV1% predicted declines over time; and (2) SCA‐specific characteristics and therapy predict this decline. At three clinical centers, children with SCA (HbSS or HbSβ0 thalassemia), unselected for respiratory disease, were enrolled in the Sleep and Asthma Cohort (SAC) study. Stu...

Centrifugation ‐free washing: A novel approach for removing immunoglobulin A from stored red blood cells
Abstract Washed red blood cells (RBCs) are indicated for immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficient recipients. Centrifugation‐based cell processors commonly used by hospital blood banks cannot consistently reduce IgA below the recommended levels, hence double washing is frequently required. Here, we describe a prototype of a simple, portable, disposable system capable of washing stored RBCs without centrifugation, while reducing IgA below 0.05 mg/dL in a single run. Samples from RBC units (n = 8, leukoreduced, 4‐6 weeks storage duration) were diluted with normal saline to a hematocrit of 10%, and then washed using...

A prospective analysis for prevalence of complications in Thai non ‐transfusion‐dependent Hb E/β‐thalassemia and α‐thalassemia (Hb H disease)
Conclusions: For the first time, this prospective study provided the current prevalence of NTDT related complications in a Southeast Asian population with a different underlying genetic basis compared with previous studies. Although individual prevalence of each complication might differ from other studies, several important clinical factors such as splenectomy, degree of anemia, and iron overload seem to be determining risks of developing these complications consistently across different ethnicities.

The role of extracellular matrix stiffness in megakaryocyte and platelet development and function
Abstract The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a key acellular structure in constant remodeling to provide tissue cohesion and rigidity. Deregulation of the balance between matrix deposition, degradation, and crosslinking results in fibrosis. Bone marrow fibrosis (BMF) is associated with several malignant and nonmalignant pathologies severely affecting blood cell production. BMF results from abnormal deposition of collagen fibers and enhanced lysyl oxidase‐mediated ECM crosslinking within the marrow, thereby increasing marrow stiffness. Bone marrow stiffness has been recently recognized as an important regulator of blood cel...

Description and Prognostic Significance of the Kinetics of Minimal Residual Disease Status in Adults with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Treated with HyperCVAD
Abstract HyperCVAD is a commonly‐used regimen for adults with newly‐diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). However, relatively little is known about the application of minimal residual disease (MRD) detection with this treatment. To address this, we studied 142 adults with ALL treated with hyperCVAD over a 10‐year period who had MRD assessed by either multi‐parameter flow cytometry or (for patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive ALL) reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction for the BCR‐ABL1 translocation. In a multivariate analysis, patients who achieved MRD negativity (MRDNeg) at any point h...

Follicular lymphoma: 2018 update on diagnosis and management
Abstract Disease overviewFollicular lymphoma is generally an indolent B cell lymphoproliferative disorder of transformed follicular center B cells. Follicular lymphoma (FL) is characterized by diffuse lymphadenopathy, bone marrow involvement, splenomegaly and less commonly other extranodal sites of involvement. In general, cytopenias can occur but constitutional symptoms of fever, nightsweats, and weight loss are uncommon. DiagnosisDiagnosis is based on histology of preferably a biopsy of a lymph node. Immunohistochemical staining is positive in virtually all cases for cell surface CD19, CD20, CD10, and monoclonal immunogl...
