This investigator initiated trial was a prospective, open, single-arm, diagnostic-prognostic study. Patients who received high-dose therapy with autologous stem cell transplantation for the treatment of their lymphoproliferative disease were included into the study.
After completion of the high-dose therapy (day -2 with respect to the stem cell transplantation) the first blood sample A for the cytocapacity test with determination of leukocytes and neutrophils was taken in the evening of day -1. Directly thereafter the study medication was administered. The second blood sample B for the cytocapacity test with determination of leukocytes and neutrophils was taken in the morning of day 0, 12-14 hours after administration of the study medication. Thereafter the stem cell re-infusion was performed.
The primary objective of this study was to show that the cytocapacity test with lenograstim is a useful predictive tool with respect to the risk of post-transplant complications and prolonged myelosuppression, typically occurring after high-dose chemotherapy.
The primary variables were:
- the rate of patients with documented infections
- the time to platelet engraftment

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) are increased in populations with immune dysfunction, including people living with HIV; however, there is little evidence for to what degree immuno...
Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) patients are at an increased risk of late adverse treatment effects. While published studies focussed on the risk of either subsequent malignant neoplasms (SMNs) or cardiovascula...
Chemotherapy and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation are effective treatments for most Hodgkin lymphoma patients, however there remains a need for better tumor-specific target therapy in Hodgkin l...

We present here a case report of recurring fainting due to orthostatic hypotension in a 45‑year-old woman with Hodgkin's' disease, treated by radiation therapy and resection of cervical lymph node. ...
Any of a group of malignant tumors of lymphoid tissue that differ from HODGKIN DISEASE, being more heterogeneous with respect to malignant cell lineage, clinical course, prognosis, and therapy. The only common feature among these tumors is the absence of giant REED-STERNBERG CELLS, a characteristic of Hodgkin's disease.
A malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and general lymphoid tissue. In the classical variant, giant usually multinucleate Hodgkin's and REED-STERNBERG CELLS are present; in the nodular lymphocyte predominant variant, lymphocytic and histiocytic cells are seen.
Two or more distinct types of malignant lymphoid tumors occurring within a single organ or tissue at the same time. It may contain different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells or both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells.
Clinically benign, histologically malignant, recurrent cutaneous T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by an infiltration of large atypical cells surrounded by inflammatory cells. The atypical cells resemble REED-STERNBERG CELLS of HODGKIN DISEASE or the malignant cells of CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA. In some cases, lymphomatoid papulosis progresses to lymphomatous conditions including MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES; HODGKIN DISEASE; CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA; or ANAPLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA.
External or interstitial irradiation to treat lymphomas (e.g., Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas) and lymph node metastases and also some autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
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 ...
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...
