1. Introduction. Vitamin D is a steroid hormone whose classical role is as a regulator of calcium and phosphate metabolism. This action, carried out through the renal, skeletal, and gastrointestinal systems has accumulated additional attention over the last several years with osteoporosis and bone health becoming an increasingly important concern for an Cited by: Bone mass is a function of bone size and volumetric bone mineral density (BMD) and is a key determinant of bone strength. The ultimate test of any measurement of bone mass is its ability to predict clinical bone fragility. Bone strength reflects the . Vitamin D is a major contributor to enteral calcium and phosphorus absorption and bone mineralization in children and has important and largely understudied immunomodulatory effects. Vitamin D deficiency is common in the United States, and there is consensus among treatment providers that levels Cited by: 5. Welcome to the homepage for the Bristol Children's Hospital Paediatric Bone Marrow Transplant service. About us: Bone Marrow Transplants at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children are carried out on Starlight Ward, a state-of-the-art 17 bedded unit which looks after children with Oncological and Haematological disorders as well as children.
Vitamin D has endocrine function as a key regulator of calcium absorption and bone homeostasis and also has intracrine function as an immunomodulator. Vitamin D deficiency before hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has been variably associated with higher risks of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and mortality. Children are at particular risk of Cited by: We recently reported that more than 70% of pediatric and young adult patients had a vitamin D (VD) deficiency at the time of their hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Moreover, VD deficiency was associated with inferior survival at days after by: Background: Pediatric patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are frequently diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency, which may impact outcomes. Objectives:: To estimate the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and examine its association with short-term survival in pediatric HSCT by: 9. Anemia (also spelled anaemia) is a decrease in the total amount of red blood cells (RBCs) or hemoglobin in the blood, or a lowered ability of the blood to carry oxygen. When anemia comes on slowly, the symptoms are often vague and may include feeling tired, weakness, shortness of breath, and a poor ability to exercise. When the anemia comes on quickly, symptoms may .
The book compares very favorably to the third edition of Thomas et al.'s Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation, 2nd edition With new developments and increasing interest in stem cell plasticity, the editors have brought out the new edition in a timely fashion and have ensured that all topics of pressing interest are covered."

Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) is a special therapy for patients with cancer or other diseases which affect the bone marrow. A bone marrow transplant involves taking cells that are normally found in the bone marrow (stem cells), filtering those cells and giving them back either to the patient they were taken from or to another person.
