II. Determine whether the addition of filgrastim (G-CSF) to high dose cyclophosphamide shortens the time to recovery in these patients.
III. Determine whether this regimen is efficacious in treating paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria.
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: Patients receive high dose cyclophosphamide IV on days 1-4. Beginning on day 10, patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) until the absolute neutrophil count is greater than 1,000/mm3 for 2 consecutive days.
Patients are followed every 3 months for at least 2 years and annually thereafter.

The purpose of this study is to continue to optimize conditioning regimens in high-risk patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) transplanted with marrow from human leukocyte antigen (HL...
To determine one-year overall survival after a non-myeloablative (NMA) bone marrow transplant for previously-untreated severe aplastic anemia.
To assess whether ATG Combined With Cyclophosphamide and cord blood infusion can accelerate hematopoietic reconstruction in severe aplastic anemia patients and improve clinical curative ef...
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the efficacy of related, HLA-identical bone marrow transplantation following cyclophosphamide (CTX) and antithymocyte globulin in patients with aplastic anemia. ...
Severe aplastic anemia is a fatal disease and patients without HLA matched siblings need alternative treatment option. Cord blood transplantation (CBT) has become an alternative treatment ...
Similar autoimmune processes (defective T-cell function) take place during the pathogenesis of aplastic anemia (AA) and Graves' disease (GD). Antithyroid drugs used for the management of GD may induce...
Severe aplastic anemia is a rare and potentially life-threatening disease of the bone marrow often requiring allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Pathogenesis of the disease can vary an...
We performed the first epidemiologic investigation to examine association of demographics and clinical characteristics at diagnosis, as well as health care expense coverage, with survival of US childr...
This review aimed to provide updated guidelines for the management of children with acquired aplastic anemia (AA), particularly focusing on hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT).
Recurrent ovarian hemorrhage resulting in ovarian infarction may lead to a life-threatening intraperitoneal hemorrhage in women with bleeding disorders such as aplastic anemia (AA). Moreover, it is se...
A form of anemia in which the bone marrow fails to produce adequate numbers of peripheral blood elements.
Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.
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.
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.

Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
