Collection of Blood and Bone Marrow From Healthy Volunteers and Patients for Research Purposes
This study is designed to provide bone marrow and/or blood cells for other research studies. Patients participating in this study will be asked to provide small amounts of medical information and undergo a limited physical examination designed to detect the presence of any obvious blood disease. A blood and bone marrow sample will be obtained to verify that the patient has normal blood cell production.
Researchers plan to obtain bone marrow samples to be used in laboratory studies directed toward understanding the formation of blood cells. Bone marrow samples will be taken from the hip bone of patients and healthy volunteers.
These samples are valuable to many research studies within the Hematology Branch of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, including studies of normal and abnormal production of blood cells, the viral causes of blood diseases, and the role of the immune system in bone marrow failure and related conditions.
This protocol defines in general terms the purposes for which blood and bone marrow specimens will be collected by members of the Hematology Branch and the conditions under which the sampling will be performed. Samples of blood and bone marrow from healthy volunteers and from patients are indispensable for many research projects, including studies of normal and abnormal hematopoiesis, the viral etiology of blood diseases, and the role of the immune system in marrow failure and related conditions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A form of anemia in which the bone marrow fails to produce adequate numbers of peripheral blood elements.
Chicken Anemia Virus
The type species of GYROVIRUS, a small, non-enveloped DNA virus originally isolated from contaminated vaccines in Japan. It causes chicken infectious anemia and may possibly play a key role in hemorrhagic anemia syndrome, anemia dermatitis, and blue wing disease.
Equine Infectious Anemia
Viral disease of horses caused by the equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV; INFECTIOUS ANEMIA VIRUS, EQUINE). It is characterized by intermittent fever, weakness, and anemia. Chronic infection consists of acute episodes with remissions.
A rare congenital hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. The disease is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, occasional neutropenia or thrombocytosis, a normocellular bone marrow with erythroid hypoplasia, and an increased risk of developing leukemia. (Curr Opin Hematol 2000 Mar;7(2):85-94)
The mildest form of erythroblastosis fetalis in which anemia is the chief manifestation.
To quantify the role of drugs and other factors in the etiology of agranulocytosis and aplastic anemia.
The purposes of this study are threefold: 1) to evaluate the prevalence and risks of oral complications in patients with aplastic anemia; 2) to evaluate if oral problems in these patients...
Primary Objectives: 1. To determine the feasibility and toxicity of employing purine-analog based conditioning for allogeneic donor stem cell transplantation in patients with sever...
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the efficacy of related, HLA-identical bone marrow transplantation following cyclophosphamide (CTX) and antithymocyte globulin in patients with aplastic anemia....
To determine the role of drugs in the etiology of aplastic anemia, agranulocytosis, and thrombocytopenic purpura. Drugs used in chemotherapy and immunotherapy were excluded.
Abstract Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) has been reported to associate with several autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Graves' disease and...
Hematologic disorders are common in autoimmune diseases. First presentation of systemic lupus erythematosis with aplastic anemia is extremely rare. We report a patient with the diagnosis of secondary...
The authors report a case of 13-y-old boy who presented with pain in bilateral knee and ankle joints accompanied by petechiae all over the body and hematochezia. On investigation, he had pancytopenia,...
Non-severe aplastic anemia (NSAA) in children is a rare, idiopathic condition of bone marrow insufficiency that can resolve spontaneously, persist for months or years, or progress to severe aplastic a...
ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: Hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia is a common syndrome in patients with bone marrow failure. However, hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia is an immune-mediated disease that...
