Pre-transplantation serum ferritin (SF) has been considered to be a potential prognostic biomarker in patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allogeneic HSCT), but this conclusion remains controversial. Thus, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the prognostic significance of pre-transplantation SF in patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT.

Iron overload has been associated with poor overall survival in patients with higher-risk myelodysplastic syndromes after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell-transplantation, but has not been investiga...
Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) is a high-risk treatment option for patients with hematologic malignancies. Advanced age and obesity can impact outcomes after allo-HCT. Previo...
In haematology and oncology, in particular in the setting of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT), VRE colonization rates are high due to previous hospital stays and precedin...
The Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes guidelines have cautioned against administering intravenous (IV) iron to hemodialysis patients with high serum ferritin levels due to safety concerns, but...
Serum ferritin level is one of the most commonly requested investigations in both primary and secondary care. Whilst low serum ferritin levels invariably indicate reduced iron stores, raised serum fer...
This study was designed to assess the relation between serum ferritin and hepatic fibrosis in patients with NAFLD. It included 83 patients with NAFLD with or without hepatic fibrosis, in a...
Recent retrospective studies have suggested that iron overload is a clinically important problem in patients undergoing ablative stem cell transplantation. However, these studies relied o...

Serum containing GAMMA-GLOBULINS which are antibodies for lymphocyte ANTIGENS. It is used both as a test for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY and therapeutically in TRANSPLANTATION.

Agents that destroy bone marrow activity. They are used to prepare patients for BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION or STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
An inherited autosomal dominant trait characterized by abnormally elevated levels of total serum THYROXINE; (T4) in euthyroid patients with abnormal SERUM ALBUMIN that binds T4 with enhanced affinity. The serum levels of free T4, free T3, and TSH are normal. It is one of several T4 abnormalities produced by non-thyroid disorder. This condition is due to mutations of the ALB gene on CHROMOSOME 4.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
