Velcade for Graft Vesus Host Disease

Shen transplanted from an immunologically different person, graft cells can attack the host's body. This is called Graft Versus Host Diseas*GVHD)e and remains a serious problem in transplantation.  One trial by Koreth and others found that Velcade was beneficial in GVHD; but his was a phase II trial other phase II trials are ongoing. Koreth treated 45 patients; 89% of patients who were treated had a one-locus and 11% of patients were treated with

Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia(ALL) is the most common cancer diagnosed in children and represents almost 25% of cancers in children younger than 15 years. Complete remission of disease is now typically achieved with pediatric chemotherapy regimens in approximately 95% of children with ALL, with up to 85% long-term survival rates. Interestingly, recent studies appears to show that young adults with ALL do better with pediatric regimens and specifically

Repeat Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation for ALL

ALL is the most common cancer diagnosed in children and young adults, represents almost 25% of cancers in children younger than 15 years. Complete remission of disease is now typically achieved with pediatric chemotherapy regimens in approximately 95% of children with ALL, with up to 85% long-term survival rates. Young adults are treated as children, but the relapse rate is higher.  Allogeneic stem cell transplantation is an important salvage option
