Interleukin (IL)-18, also known as interferon-gamma (INF-γ)-inducing factor, is involved in Th1 responses and regulation of immunity. Accumulating evidence implicates IL-18 in autoimmune diseases, but little is known of its role in acquired aplastic anemia (AA), immune-mediated destruction of bone marrow (BM) hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs). IL-18 protein levels were significantly...
The aim of the study was to conduct a meta-analysis investigating the association of maternal iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and risk of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).
Single-stranded oligonucleotides containing deoxyuridine are aptamers (SOMAmers) that can bind proteins with high specificity and affinity, and slow dissociation rates. SOMAscan, an aptamer-based proteomic technology, allows measurement of more than 1,300 proteins simultaneously for identification of new disease biomarkers. The aim of the present study was to identify new serum and plasma protein ...
Adolescent girls have a higher risk of anemia due to an increased requirement, low intake of hematopoietic nutrients and low intake of a nutrient that enhance absorption of these hematopoietic nutrients. Adolescent girls living in refugee camps are more vulnerable to anemia. The study aimed to determine the prevalence of anemia and associated factors among adolescent girls aged 10-19 years in Aw-B...
To evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of deferasirox therapy in a large observational cohort of children with transfusion-dependent thalassemia (TDT) and sickle cell anemia (SCA) in Turkey.
New-onset autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) occurs in 2% to 6% of pediatric patients post-hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and is a significant complication. Incomplete immune recovery following HSCT may predispose to immune dysregulation including autoimmune cytopenias. We describe an innovative therapy for AIHA refractory to proteasome inhibition. In potentially life-threatening A...
Acute Leukaemia (AL) is a neoplasm of WBCs (white blood cells). Being an important class of metabolites, alteration in free fatty acids (FFAs) levels play a key role in cancer development and progression. As they involve in cell signaling, maintain membrane integrity, regulate homeostasis and effect cell and tissue functions. Considering this fact, a comprehensive analysis of FFAs was conducted to...
Evans syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder that is defined by the simultaneous or sequential presence of two or more cytopenias without an obvious underlying precipitating cause. Evans syndrome usually follows a chronic relapsing and remitting course and is quite rare, making it difficult to evaluate in clinical studies.
Umbilical cord blood transplantation (UCBT) is a possible option for aplastic anemia (AA) patients without a related or unrelated human leukocyte antigen-matched donor, particularly if immunosuppressive therapy (IST) has failed, or an urgent transplant is needed. However, a higher rate of graft failure after UCBT remains a major problem, and the optimal conditioning regimen for stable engraftment ...
Patients with leukemia, lymphoma, severe aplastic anemia, etc. are frequently the targets of bone marrow transplantation, the success of which critically depends on efficient engraftment by transplanted hematopoietic cells (HSCs). Ex vivo manipulation of HSCs to improve their engraftment ability becomes necessary when the number or quality of donor HSCs is a limiting factor. Due to their hematopoi...
Diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDSs) when anemia is the only abnormality can be complicated. The aim of our study was to investigate the primary causes of anemia and/or macrocytosis of uncertain etiology.
To characterize anemia and evaluate hematological responses to universal iron-folic acid (IFA) supplementation in Ethiopian pregnant women.
It is unknown if anemia in the absence of transfusions is an independent risk factor for adverse outcomes in cardiac surgery, and if correction to higher hemoglobin targets impacts these outcomes.
Patients with cancers or malignant homeopathies can suffer from chronic anemia and be regularly transfused in hospitals. Most of the time, their performance status is low. Few local structures currently provide blood transfusion services and patients have to go under difficult and costing transportation to the hospital. The objective of this work is to evaluate benefits and development terms of ho...
Antibiotics are a type of antimicrobial drug with the ubiquitous presence in foodstuff that effectively applied to treat the diseases and promote the animal growth worldwide. Chloramphenicol as one of the antibiotics with the broad action spectrum against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria is widely applied for the effective treatment of infectious diseases in humans and animals. Unfortunate...
Anemia is associated with worse outcome in stroke, but the impact of anemia with intravenous thrombolysis or endovascular therapy has hardly been delineated. The aim of this study was to analyze the role of anemia on infarct evolution and outcome after acute stroke treatment.
Whether and how anemia treatment with erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) before hemodialysis initiation may be associated with lower mortality after dialysis initiation is unknown. We compared all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in two groups of patients who experienced distinct anemia treatment patterns with ESAs before and after hemodialysis initiation. This retrospective cohort analysi...
Anemia is recognized as a major public health problem in childhood, especially in children under 24 months of age. Despite improvements in public health strategies to prevent and control anemia in Brazilian young children in the last decade, few studies have assessed the predictors for this condition in primary health care. Thus, this study aimed to assess the associated factors of anemia in young...
This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the risk of clonal evolution of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) in acquired aplastic anemia (AA), and whether the use of G-CSF increases the occurrence of secondary malignant neoplasms, mainly myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH).
Anemia is one of the most prevalent complications in patients with chronic kidney disease, which is believed to be caused by the insufficient synthesis of erythropoietin by the kidney. This phase III study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of CinnaPoietin® (epoetin beta, CinnaGen) with Eprex® (epoetin alfa, Janssen Cilag) in the treatment of anemia in ESRD hemodialysis patients.
USP48 May Be Potential Therapeutic Target in Fanconi Anemia: Inactivation of USP48 reduced chromosomal instability of Fanconi anemia defective cells and highlights a role for this enzyme in controlling DNA repair.
Patients with ovarian cancer experience a high rate of anemia throughout their treatment course, with rates ranging from 19% to 95%. Blood transfusions offer symptom relief but may be costly, are limited in supply, and have been associated with worse 30-day surgical morbidity and mortality.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-Notch signaling pathway plays an important role in aplastic anemia (AA). This study aimed to evaluate the regulatory roles of VEGF-Notch signaling pathway on mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) isolated from AA patients with kidney deficiency and blood stasis (KB) (AA MSCs).
