Ventilatory response to carbon dioxide in patients with homozygous sickle-cell disease

The ventilatory response to carbon dioxide was measured by a rebreathing technique in 21 Nigerians who had homozygous sickle-cell disease. The slope of the carbon dioxide response curve was obtained by plotting the ventilation at successive half-minute intervals against the corresponding mean end-tidal PCO2. Our results showed that sickle-cell patients are as sensitive to carbon dioxide as are normal subjects.

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.
