Controlled trial of transfusions for silent cerebral infarcts in sickle cell anemia.
N. Engl. J. Med.

Hide Abstract
Silent cerebral infarcts are the most common neurologic injury in children with sickle cell anemia and are associated with the recurrence of an infarct (stroke or silent cerebral infarct). We tested the hypothesis that the incidence of the recurrence of an infarct would be lower among children who underwent regular blood-transfusion therapy than among those who received standard care.

Hide Abstract
The most common form of neurologic injury in sickle cell anemia (SCA) is silent cerebral infarction (SCI). In the Silent Cerebral Infarct Multi-Center Clinical Trial, we sought to identify risk factors associated with SCI. In this cross-sectional study, we evaluated the clinical history and baseline laboratory values and performed magnetic resonance imaging of the brain in participants with SCA (HbSS or HbS?° thalassemia) between the ages of 5 and 15 years with no history of overt stroke or seizures. Neuroradiology and neurology committees adjudicated the presence of SCI. SCIs were diagnosed in 30.8% (251 of 814) participants who completed all evaluations and had valid data on all prespecified demographic and clinical covariates. The mean age of the participants was 9.1 years, with 413 males (50.7%). In a multivariable logistic regression analysis, lower baseline hemoglobin concentration (P < .001), higher baseline systolic blood pressure (P = .018), and male sex (P = .030) were statistically significantly associated with an increased risk of an SCI. Hemoglobin concentration and systolic blood pressure are risk factors for SCI in children with SCA and may be therapeutic targets for decreasing the risk of SCI. This study is registered at www.clinicaltrials.gov as #NCT00072761.

Donor transmission of pineoblastoma in a two-yr-old male recipient of a multivisceral transplant: a case report.

Hide Abstract
Transplant-transmitted malignances are rare but devastating events. Primary brain tumors are the least common among reported donor-derived malignancies. We report a case of donor-transmitted pineoblastoma, a PNET, in a two-yr-old male recipient, who presented with a rapidly growing mass in the right mandible, four months after multiple visceral organ transplantation. The recipient had liver, pancreas, and small bowel transplants because of end-stage liver failure and short gut syndrome, which was secondary to large bowel resection for management of gastroschisis complicated by intestinal volvulus. The donor autopsy results became available seven wk after transplantation, which found a pineoblastoma with meningeal spread. Evaluation of eyes, adrenal glands, bone marrow, and other organs did not identify metastasis outside the CNS. A biopsy of the recipients right mandibular mass revealed a malignant small round blue cell tumor with the immunohistochemistry profile of a PNET. Staging evaluation revealed the tumor in the right mandible with bone marrow involvement. Further investigation showed that recipients tumor and donors pineoblastoma shared the same immunophenotype and HLA type, suggesting the recipients tumor is a donor-transmitted pineoblastoma. This is the first case report of donor-transmitted pineoblastoma post-organ transplant.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
