    Abstract : Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is mainly an intensive treatment option for hematology malignancies. During the past decades, improved care and treatment have been systematically developed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Immune reconstitution after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

    Author : Brigitta Omazic; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Immune reconstitution; allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation; IgH gene expression; TcRVbeta gene expression; B lymphocytes; T lymphocytes; IGF-1 receptor; thyroid hormone receptor.;

    Abstract : After treatment with allogeneic hernatopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) the patient suffers from a deficient immune system for at least 12 months or longer. During this period, the patient is susceptible to infections and if the state of immune deficiency is prolonged there is an increased risk of relapse of the underlying malignancy as well as development of secondary malignancies.

  3. 3. Pulmonary complications after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

    Author : Ulrica Forslöw; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The respiratory tract is one of the most common and serious sites for complications in HSCT patients. In this project the incidence, outcome, and risk factors for patients with infectious or non-infectious pulmonary complications were studied. Bronchoscopy and pulmonary function tests (PFTs) were evaluated as diagnostic tools. READ MORE

  4. 4. Alloreactivity in stem cell transplantation

    Author : Anna Nordlander; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), relapse and graft rejection are the main complications after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). The aim of this thesis was to achieve a better understanding of the alloreactivity seen after HSCT, focusing on graft rejection, but also including the graft-versus-leukemia (GVL) effect and GVHD.

  5. 5. Myofibroblasts and polyploid cells in the conjunctival surface after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

    Author : David Hallberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Myofibroblast; Polyploid; Allogeneic; Graft-versus-Host Disease;

    Abstract : Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is a potentially curative treatment modality for hematological malignancies, such as leukemia and lymphoma. However, a major complication of the procedure is that the immune effector cells in the graft may become activated towards the host´s healthy tissues, resulting in a condition called Graft-versus-Host Disease (GvHD).
