Graft-versus-host reaction following blood product transfusion

The American Journal of Medicine

Jun 1, 1982

V von FliednerU Kim

Abstract

The observation of graft-versus-host (GVH) reaction after platelet transfusion in a patient with Hodgkin's disease led us to analyze 38 reported cases in the literature, to outline prognostic factors and to characterize patients at risk. Overall mortality was 68 percent. It was higher a...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.

Myeloid Stem Cells & CML

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) is a stem cell cancer that arises due to the fusion and constitutive expression of BCR-ABL1 in hematopoietic stem cells, which give rise to both myeloid and lymphoid cell lineages. CML is characterized by increased and unregulated proliferation of myeloid cells. Here is the latest research.

Hodgkin Disease

Hodgkin disease or Hodgkin's lymphoma is a type of lymphoma that affects the lymph system. Here is the latest research on Hodgkin disease.

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.


Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (cml) is a clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorder characterized by the translocation and resultant production of the constitutively activated bcr-abl tyrosine kinase. Here is the latest research on this disease.
