This molecular biology and phase II trial studies how well imetelstat sodium works in treating younger patients with recurrent or refractory brain tumors. Imetelstat sodium may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.


Transfusion-related Acute Lung Injury: a Prospective Cohort Study in Critically Ill Children

Transfusions cause more adverse events in children than in adults. Patients in pediatric intensive care units (PICU) are particularly exposed to transfusions of plasma-rich blood products (red blood cell (RBC), plasma and platelets) and the risk of adverse events after a transfusion is particularly high in this vulnerable population. Transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI), an acute inflammation of the lungs that impairs gas exchange leading to acute respiratory failure, ...

Impact of Microparticles in Blood on Transfused Patient Outcomes

During storage, red blood cells (RBCs) undergo changes collectively termed "Storage lesions". these changes may have an impact of the outcomes of transfused patients. One of these changes is the release of microparticles by RBCs and other blood cells types. The aim of the study is to (1) quantify red cell- and platelet-derived microparticles in RBC concentrates, and (2) evaluate the impact of transfused microparticles (MPs) on survival and post-transfusion complications in crit...

Study to Separately Evaluate the Activity of Talacotuzumab (JNJ-56022473) or Daratumumab in Transfusion-Dependent Participants With Low or Intermediate-1 Risk Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) Who Are Relapsed or Refractory to Erythropoiesis-Stimulating Age

The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy (transfusion independence [TI]) of talacotuzumab (JNJ-56022473) or daratumumab in transfusion-dependent participants with low or intermediate-1 risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) whose disease has relapsed during treatment with or is refractory to Erythropoiesis-Stimulating Agent (ESAs).

Transfer of GPI-Linked Proteins to Transfused Patients With Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria

This study will examine blood cells of patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) after they receive a blood transfusion to determine if certain proteins (GPI-linked proteins) in the transfused blood transfer to the patient's blood cells. GPI-linked proteins, which are normally present on red cells and regulate red cell survival, are absent in patients with PNH. Their lack is believed to account for the premature destruction of red blood cells in these patients, re...

Study of Transfusion-Transmitted Infections

This study will follow blood transfusion recipients for 6 to 9 months following transfusion to monitor the quality and safety of blood transfusion. Improved viral testing and careful donor screening in the last several years has dramatically reduced the rates of transfusion-related HIV and hepatitis. Nevertheless, ongoing surveillance of transfusion-related infections is essential to maintain a high safety standard and to determine the transfusion risk of other infectious age...

Transfusions and Nitric Oxide Level in Preterm Infants

The purpose of this study is to better understand S-nitrosohemeglobin (SNO-Hb) in transfused blood of extremely preterm infants. The long term goal of the project is to identify variation in the SNO-Hb between packed red blood cell units, and between and among individual preterm infants pre and post-transfusion. Duke investigators are developing methods to replenish SNO-Hb, which, if successful, would improve RBC deformation in addition to providing a vasodilatory stimulation t...

Red Blood Cell Transfusion in Very Premature Infants and HAS 2014 Guideline

The indications that motivated the decision to transfuse (or not) were analyzed to verify compliance with HAS recommendations. Medical records from 57 premature infants < 32 weeks hospitalized between 2016 -2017 were retrospectively analysed, especially all the events related to monitoring of hemoglobin level and RBC transfusions during the first month of life. The criteria (postnatal age, rate of haemoglobin, type of breathing assistance, oxygen needing, medullary regeneration...

Biological Parameters Changes After Autologous Blood Transfusion of Red Blood Cells (200 ml) in Healthy Volunteers.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if differences between samples of subjects obtained before autologous blood transfusion or samples of non-transfused subjects and samples of subjects after autologous blood transfusion can be identified. Analyses performed will focus on the morphological and biochemical parameters of red blood cells and associated microparticles. The final goal would be to find markers of autologous blood transfusion, that could be used to identify such ...

Randomized Trial of a Liberal Versus a Restrictive Transfusion Strategy in Elderly Cardiac Surgery Patients

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a less restrictive strategy of red blood cell transfusion in elderly patients following coronary bypass surgery results in enhanced postoperative recovery as determined by quality of life assessment, exercise tolerance and clinical outcomes. Two postoperative transfusion strategies: 1. Liberal - transfused when Hgb is

Kinetics of Blood Platelets Transfused to Healthy Subjects

The current phase 0 trial is preceding the phase 1/2 trial of a newly developed drug, NAITgam, for the prevention of fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT) - a rare, but potentially very severe bleeding condition in the fetus or newborn. FNAIT may occur in women whose blood platelets do not express HPA-1a. If the fetus has inherited HPA-1a from the father, the mother's immune system may be stimulated to produce HPA-1a antibodies if HPA-1a positive fetal blood pl...

Transfusion Associated HCV in a Pediatric Population

To identify a large cohort of children transfused in the decade prior to second-generation anti-hepatitis C virus (HCV) donor screening (1982-1992). This will not only identify cases for the study of persistent infection and chronic hepatitis in children, but will allow for the determination of the annualized risk of transfusion-associated hepatitis (TAH) infection in children, data that are not currently available.

Considerations on the Transfusion Threshold in Cardiac Surgery

This is a retrospective observational study of the transfusion threshold in cardiac surgery. There is controversy in the literature regarding the transfusion threshold to be adopted, especially in a patient who has undergone cardiac surgery. Some authors suggest that the transfusion should be done in a restrictive way when a certain threshold in hemoglobin is reached, in order to avoid the risks it implies, especially infectious.This threshold is very controversial and remains...

Study the Effect of Blood Transfusion on Oxidant-antioxidant Status in Premature Neonates

Primary aim is to evaluate the effect of blood transfusion on oxidant-antioxidant status in premature neonates. Secondary aim is to assess the effect of the age of transfused red blood cells on the biological markers of oxidative stress.

VO2 Max: In Vivo Model for Functional Red Cell Testing. Can RECESS be Explained?

This is a single-center, randomized, partially blinded study to determine whether 42-day old red blood cells (RBCs) deliver oxygen as effectively as 7-day old RBCs and also to determine whether transfusion with 28-day old RBCs is non-inferior to 7-day old RBCs with respect to oxygen delivery. In this study, subjects will be randomized to be transfused with 2 units of autologous (one's own) RBCs that are either 7-, 28-, or 42-days old. Endpoints include changes in exercis...

Restrictive and Liberal Transfusion Strategies in Intensive Care

The most effective transfusion practice in critically ill ICU patients is unknown. Currently the data is unclear as to whether a liberal or restrictive transfusion policy is of most benefit to patients in the short and longer term. The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that liberal use of RBCs (Hb transfusion trigger ≤90g/L; target Hb range 91-110 g/L) to correct anaemia improves clinical outcomes compared with a restrictive transfusion trigger (Hb transfusion trigg...

Effect of Packed Red Blood Cell Transfusion on Eicosanoid Profiles in Plasma of Intensive Care Patients

The main goal of this pilot study is to assess the time course of eicosanoid profiles in intensive care unit (ICU) patients requiring packed red blood cell (PRBC) transfusion. Moreover we will analyze the change of levels of eicosanoids in patient plasma prior and after a PRBC transfusion as well as its correlation with levels of eicosanoids in the transfused PRBCs. These data will then be used to determine the estimated effect size necessary for the planning of future larger s...

Efficacy and Safety of Ultra Small Dose Decitabine for the Lower Risk MDS Patients With Transfusion Dependent

Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is widely recognized as a clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorder. Decitabine has been approved for the treatment of all subtypes of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). However, the use of decitabine is often limited by its severe toxicity represented by myelosuppression even at relatively low doses. In lower-risk patients (including IPSS low and int-1 risk groups), treatment mainly aims at improving cytopenias, especially anemia. However, although se...

Transfusion-related EBV Infection Among Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant Pediatric Recipients

In many countries, numerous steps are taken to minimize the risk of infection from transfused blood products. Typically, blood banking organisations will screen for an array of infectious pathogens as part of their quality control protocol. While transmission of these tested agents via transfusion has become exceedingly rare, the risk of transfusion-transmitted infections for which testing is not currently performed continues to be a concern. Among these untested infectious age...

The Efficacy of Immunosuppressive Therapy Combined With Cord Blood Transfusion in Treatment of Severe Aplastic Anemia
