Improving security of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant in patients with light-chain amyloidosis.

Autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) has demonstrated to be an effective treatment for patients with light-chain (AL) amyloidosis. However, a high transplant-related mortality (TRM) rate was reported in previous series of patients and questioned the role of transplant in this disease. Recently, experienced groups have shown a significant TRM decrease that has been attributed to an accurate selection of patients. Moreover, application of several supportive measures has decreased toxicity over amyloid-invol...

High-dose melphalan and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in patients with AL amyloidosis and cardiac defibrillators.

Cardiac deposition of misfolded light chains is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with immunoglobulin (AL) amyloidosis. Cardiac defibrillators can be used in the management of patients with advanced cardiac amyloidosis, but data concerning the use of these devices in patients undergoing treatment with high-dose melphalan followed by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (HDM/SCT) is limited. Herein we describe a single-institution experience of HDM/SCT in 15 patients w...

Immune Signatures Associated With Clonal Isotype Switch After Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for Multiple Myeloma.

High-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) are integral components of the overall treatment for patients with multiple myeloma (MM) aged ≤ 65 years. The emergence of oligoclonal immunoglobulin bands (ie, immunoglobulins differing from those originally identified at diagnosis [termed clonal isotype switch (CIS)]) has been reported in patients with MM after high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation. However, the clinical relevance and the correlatio...

Fluoroquinolone prophylaxis is highly effective for the prevention of central line-associated bloodstream infections in autologous stem cell transplant patients.

Patients undergoing stem cell transplant (SCT) for the treatment of hematologic malignancy are at increased risk for central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs). The use of prophylactic antibiotics to prevent CLABSIs in the setting of autologous SCT is of unclear benefit. We aimed to evaluate the impact of levofloxacin prophylaxis on reducing CLABSIs in this high-risk population.

A single-institution experience of performing bloodless transplant in Jehovah's Witness patients.

Autologous stem cell transplant has been shown to prolong survival in multiple myeloma (MM). A common complication of the pre-transplant conditioning chemotherapy is severe multi-lineage cytopenias, resulting in significant transfusion requirements. Jehovah's Witnesses are members of a religious group that do not accept the transfusion of blood products. Many large transplant centers refuse to perform transplantation in Jehovah's Witnesses due to the complexity of treating cytopenic patients without blood p...

First - line, non - cryopreserved autologous stem cell transplant for poor - risk germ - cell tumors: Experience in a developing country.

The current first - line treatment for non - seminomatous germ cell tumor (NSGCT) consists of four cycles of cisplatin, etoposide, and bleomycin (BEP), which results in 5 - year overall survival < 60% in patients with poor - risk features. Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (auto - HSCT) as a method for overcoming high toxicity after high dose chemotherapy (HDC) has been explored in different solid tumors, but has remained standard practice only for NSGCT. Our objective was to describe outco...

Prognostic restaging at the time of second-line therapy in patients with AL amyloidosis.

It is well known that staging of patients with AL amyloidosis at diagnosis predicts for survival, but there is a paucity of literature delineating the prognostic value of these systems at relapse. We evaluated the prognostic value of AL staging among 413 patients initiated with second-line therapy between 2000 and 2015. Both the Revised Mayo 2012 and the European revision of Mayo 2004 staging systems were used. The median time from initial treatment to second-line therapy was 11.7 months. The first-line the...

Primary plasma cell leukemia: autologous stem cell transplant in an era of novel induction drugs.

Primary plasma cell leukemia (pPCL) is a rare and aggressive variant of multiple myeloma (MM) with poor long-term survival after cytotoxic chemotherapy. Many novel drugs have revolutionized the treatment algorithms for MM. The impact of targeted therapy, both pre- and post-autologous stem cell transplant (auto-HCT) remains an area of ongoing interest. In this study, we report outcomes post auto-HCT for pPCL and the impact of maintenance therapy posttransplant with novel agents.


High-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant (AHSCT) is a standard of care for patients with relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). Different conditioning regimen prior to AHSCT have been used with the two most common being BEAM (carmustine, etoposide, cytarabine, and melphalan) and BUCYVP16 (busulfan, cyclophosphamide, and etoposide). We retrospectively compared the outcomes of patients treated with BEAM (N=128) or BUCYVP16 (N=105) followed by AHSCT. After a median follow up ...

Significant Nationwide Variability exists in the Costs and in Hospital Mortality Rates in Autologous Stem Cell Transplant for Multiple Myeloma: An Analysis of the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) Database.

Health related quality of life for multiple myeloma patients according to treatment strategy after autologous stem cell transplant: a cross-sectional study using EORTC, EQ-5D and MY-20 scales.

Maintenance (MT) may be prescribed after autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) but there are often concerns about the impact on quality of life (QoL). QoL was compared between baseline patients (30-100 days post-ASCT and had not commenced MT); MT patients (>100 days post-ASCT and receiving MT), and no MT (>100 days post-ASCT and not receiving MT). Patients completed the EuroQoL five dimension (EQ-5D), the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer QoL Questionnaire Core 30 (EORTC QLQ-C30), ...

Impact of hospital hospitality house programs on quality of life and mood of patients and caregivers after hematopoietic stem cell transplant.

The quality of life (QOL) of hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patients and their caregivers decreases during the first 8 days after HSCT.

Real-life data on safety and efficacy of autologous stem cell transplantation in elderly patients with multiple myeloma.

Autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is still debatable in treatment of patients over 65 years with multiple myeloma (MM). We performed a retrospective analysis of newly diagnosed MM patients who underwent ASCT between January 2010 and July 2016. A non-transplanted group with similar clinical characteristics, aged 65-70 years old, diagnosed and treated in the same timeline was used for comparison. We analyzed a total of 155 patients, 132 of which underwent ASCT (≤ 65 years, n = 103, media...

The role of autologous stem cell transplantation in patients with nodal peripheral T-cell lymphomas in first complete remission: Report from COMPLETE, a prospective, multicenter cohort study.

The role of autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in the first complete remission (CR1) of peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs) is not well defined. This study analyzed the impact of ASCT on the clinical outcomes of patients with newly diagnosed PTCL in CR1.

Recent Advances in the Diagnosis, Risk Stratification, and Management of Systemic Light-Chain Amyloidosis.

The term amyloidosis refers to a group of disorders in which protein fibrils accumulate in certain organs, disrupt their tissue architecture, and impair the function of the effected organ. The clinical manifestations and prognosis vary widely depending on the specific type of the affected protein. Immunoglobulin light-chain (AL) amyloidosis is the most common form of systemic amyloidosis, characterized by deposition of a misfolded monoclonal light-chain that is secreted from a plasma cell clone. Demonstrati...

Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma: single center experience in an Asian population.

Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma (SPTL) is a rare form of cytotoxic T-cell lymphoma. It is believed that SPTL in patients without hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS) follows an indolent course; in contrast, SPTL in patients with HPS has been associated with unfavorable survival. To provide more clinical data on SPTL in Asian populations and to identify optimal therapeutic strategies for SPTL, we assessed the clinicopathological features and long-term follow-up data of 10 Taiwanese SPTL patients diag...

Wernicke's encephalopathy in a patient with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma post-Autologous HSCT.

Wernick's Encephalopathy (WE) is an acute neuropsychiatric syndrome caused by thiamine deficiency post hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). WE is associated with high mortality and morbidity rates, but due to its rare occurrence, it is rarely considered in patients submitted to this procedure. Considering that, the manuscript reports the clinical characteristics and the possible factors that predisposed the occurrence of WE in a patient with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma post-Autologous HSCT. We conclude tha...

Patterns of Relapse after Salvage Autologous Stem Cell Transplant for Hodgkin's Lymphoma: Should Sites of Relapse Relative to Initially Involved Sites Be Used to Guide Indications for Peri-transplant Radiotherapy.

We aimed to assess patterns of relapse in patients undergoing salvage ASCT for relapsed HL in the modern-era with the hypothesis that patients suffering relapse at initially involved sites are at increased risks of relapse post-ASCT that may help guide the application of peri-transplant RT.

Risk factors and predictive scoring system for post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

We analyzed data of 64,539 consecutive patients in the national Japanese transplant registry, including 40,195 after allogeneic stem cell transplantation, 24,215 after autologous stem cell transplantation, and 129 after syngeneic stem cell transplantation, and 299 developed Epstein-Barr virus positive post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder. The probability at 2 years was 0.79% after allogeneic transplantation, 0.78% after syngeneic transplantation, and 0.11% after autologous transplantation. The follo...

Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation following Relapse post Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in adult patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia: A retrospective analysis of 537 patients from the Acute Leukemia Working Party of the EBMT.

Patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who relapse after autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) can be rescued by allogeneic SCT. We identified 537 adult patients with AML allografted in second complete remission (CR2) or first relapse after ASCT in the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) registry and. At 3 years post allograft, leukemia free survival (LFS) was 31.4% [95%CI 27.3-35.6], overall survival (OS) 39.5% [95%CI 35.1-43.9], relapse incidence (RI) 34.6% [95%CI 30.4-3...

Bacteraemia post-autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in the absence of antibacterial prophylaxis: a decade's experience from Lebanon.

In this study, we assessed the incidence, contributing factors and outcome of prolonged neutropenia above 7 days and of bacteraemia in patients with lymphoma and multiple myeloma who underwent autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) without antibacterial prophylaxis.

Haematopoietic stem cell transplants: principles and indications.

Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation was proposed as a treatment strategy just over 60 years ago. Owing to great advances in the field, haematopoietic stem cell transplantation has become an established method for the treatment of many haemato-oncological, immunological and hereditary conditions with the potential of cure. The number of haematopoietic stem cell transplants performed worldwide reached one million by 2012. This review provides an overview of autologous and allogeneic haematopoietic stem c...

Rescue haploidentical peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for engraftment failure: a single-centre case series.

Graft failure affects approximately 5% of allogeneic stem cell transplants, with a poor prognosis. Salvage second allogeneic stem cell transplantation (alloSCT2) is limited by high rates of transplant-related mortality from infection and graft-versus-host disease. We report on five adult patients receiving rescue alloSCT2 using haploidentical peripheral blood stem cells. All patients achieved neutrophil engraftment, two subsequently died from sepsis and disease relapse, respectively. Three patients remain a...

Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic Model of Neutropenia in Patients With Myeloma Receiving High-Dose Melphalan for Autologous Stem Cell Transplant.

High-dose melphalan (HDM) is part of the conditioning regimen in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) receiving autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). However, individual sensitivity to melphalan varies, and many patients experience severe toxicities. Prolonged severe neutropenia is one of the most severe toxicities and contributes to potentially life-threatening infections and failure of ASCT. Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) is given to stimulate neutrophil proliferation after melphalan ...
