Abstract

Transfusion of blood products containing immunocompetent lymphocytes may cause graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in immunosuppressed recipients. We describe fatal GVHD which occurred in a 30-year-old renal transplant patient 2 weeks after transfusion of 1.0 x 10(8) lymphocytes/kilogram. ...read more

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

Graft vs Host Disease

Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality after allogeneic haematopoietic cell transplantation from unrelated donors. Here is the latest research.
