Viral infections remain a major risk in immunocompromised pediatric patients, and virus-specific T cell (VST) therapy has been successful for treatment of refractory viral infections in prior studies. We performed a phase II multicenter study (NCT03475212) for the treatment of pediatric patients with inborn errors of immunity and/or post allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant with refractory viral infections using partially-HLA matched VSTs targeting cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, or adenovirus. Primary endpoints were feasibility, safety, and clinical responses (>1 log reduction in viremia at 28 days). Secondary endpoints were reconstitution of antiviral immunity and persistence of the infused VSTs. Suitable VST …

Single Center Retrospective Comparison Of Bivalirudin And Heparin For Therapeutic Anticoagulation In Pediatric Patients, Clayton Habiger, Shannon L. Carpenter 2024 Children's Mercy Kansas City

Single Center Retrospective Comparison Of Bivalirudin And Heparin For Therapeutic Anticoagulation In Pediatric Patients, Clayton Habiger, Shannon L. Carpenter

Posters

Background: The pharmacological choice for continuous anticoagulation therapy in pediatric patients has classically been unfractionated heparin. However, with heparin there are risks of treatment resistance in pediatrics given differences in developmental hemostasis, and contemporary medications such as bivalirudin offer a valuable alternative. Bivalirudin binds to thrombin and has shown encouraging results compared to heparin in pediatric patients receiving ECMO, but no comparison has been made in patients receiving therapeutic anticoagulation. Three years ago, Children’s Mercy Pediatric Hematology department encouraged bivalirudin use over heparin use for therapeutic anticoagulation requiring a continuous infusion. Objectives: Compare clinical and laboratory outcomes in patients receiving …

Case Of Rosai Dorfman Disease In A Patient With Newly Diagnosed Hodgkin Lymphoma, Liza Salloum, Jennifer Rojas Huen, Ricardo Serna, Alisha Valdez 2024 The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Case Of Rosai Dorfman Disease In A Patient With Newly Diagnosed Hodgkin Lymphoma, Liza Salloum, Jennifer Rojas Huen, Ricardo Serna, Alisha Valdez

Research Symposium

Background: Rosai Dorfman Disease (RDD, also known as sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy) is a rare non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis, classified into nodal (classic) and extranodal disease. Most patients present with non-tender cervical lymphadenopathy, although other sites including the inguinal and axillary regions have been reported. Extranodal disease (~43% of cases) can involve any organ system. RDD is more common in children, but cases have been reported in patients in their 70s. The prognosis of nodal RDD can correlate with the number of nodal groups involved. Many cases can be managed only with observation, although surgery, chemotherapy, corticosteroids, and immunomodulators have …


A True Bloody Emergency: An Unusual Case Of Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, Joshua M. Ninan 2024 The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

A True Bloody Emergency: An Unusual Case Of Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, Joshua M. Ninan

Research Symposium

Background: Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) is a primary thrombotic microangiopathy that is classically characterized by thrombocytopenia and microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA). Although rare with an annual incidence of 3.7 cases per one million adults, it is considered a true hematological emergency due to its fatality rate of almost 100% if appropriate treatment is not initiated immediately. This makes it vitally important to identify and treat patients with TTP, a task that becomes unusually challenging in the absence of the disorder’s other characteristically diagnostic clinical features such as mucosal bleeding, fever, or presence of schistocytes.

Case Presentation: A 30-year-old gentleman with …


Distinguishing Leukemic Cells Using Fractal Chromatin Patterns And Machine Learning, Abigail Gordhamer, Paul Young, Ryan Cordner 2024 Brigham Young University - Provo

Distinguishing Leukemic Cells Using Fractal Chromatin Patterns And Machine Learning, Abigail Gordhamer, Paul Young, Ryan Cordner

Annual Research Symposium

One of the most important tests in the clinical laboratory is the Complete Blood Count, which involves identifying the white blood cells in a patient’s blood. The respective counts of the different white blood cell types correlate with various states of health and disease, and are critical to diagnosing diseases such as leukemia. Leukemic cells are considered especially difficult to distinguish, and it is of the upmost importance that these cells are identified correctly. To aid in the process of leukemic cell identification, we quantified fractal patterns in the chromatin of white blood cells and used the data to identify …


Chromatin Pattern Quantification For The Differentiation Of White Blood Cells, Paul Young, Ryan Cordner, Abigail Gordhamer 2024 Brigham Young University - Provo

Chromatin Pattern Quantification For The Differentiation Of White Blood Cells, Paul Young, Ryan Cordner, Abigail Gordhamer

Annual Research Symposium

Nuclear chromatin patterns have been used historically to distinguish between different developmental stages and lineages of white blood cells. While it is common to characterize cells based on arbitrary ‘open’ or ‘closed’ chromatin patterns, quantification of chromatin data is lacking. By extracting nuclei from a database of white blood cells and running fractal analyses using TWOMBLI, we were able to produce meaningful data quantifying chromatin patterns. Our data were put through a random forest algorithm which grouped each point based on relationship probability. The algorithm compared immature and mature cell types as well as cells of similar maturity and differing …

The influence of site size on CPG-inconsistent care delivery, and association between patient outcomes and CPG-inconsistent care were described. Methods: This retrospective, multicenter study included patients less than 21 years old with cancer who were at high risk of poor FN outcomes and were previously enrolled to a Children's Oncology Group (COG) study at participating National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) institutions from January 2014 through December …


Investigating Clot-Flow Interactions By Integrating Intravital Imaging With In Silico Modeling For Analysis Of Flow, Transport, And Hemodynamic Forces, Chayut Teeraratkul, Maurizio Tomaiuolo, Timothy Stalker, Debanjan Mukherjee 2024 Thomas Jefferson University

Investigating Clot-Flow Interactions By Integrating Intravital Imaging With In Silico Modeling For Analysis Of Flow, Transport, And Hemodynamic Forces, Chayut Teeraratkul, Maurizio Tomaiuolo, Timothy Stalker, Debanjan Mukherjee

Cardeza Foundation for Hematologic Research

As a blood clot forms, grows, deforms, and embolizes following a vascular injury, local clot-flow interactions lead to a highly dynamic flow environment. The local flow influences transport of biochemical species relevant for clotting, and determines the forces on the clot that in turn lead to clot deformation and embolization. Despite this central role, quantitative characterization of this dynamic clot-flow interaction and flow environment in the clot neighborhood remains a major challenge. Here, we propose an approach that integrates dynamic intravital imaging with computer geometric modeling and computational flow and transport modeling to develop a unified in silico framework to …

Regulatory Approval Of Clinical Trials: Is It Time To Reinvent The Wheel?., Mansoor Saleh, Karishma Sharma, Aisleen Shamshudin, Innocent Abayo, Stacey Gondi, Noureen Karimi

Internal Medicine, East Africa

Less than 1% of all clinical trials are conducted in Africa. In 2019, only six of 26 oncology clinical trials conducted in Africa were conducted in countries with subjects of African ancestry. There are multiple barriers that hinder the conduct of cancer clinical trials in Africa. Time to trial activation (TTA) is the administrative and regulatory process required before a study can be activated—an important metric and often a major barrier for site selection. In Kenya, TTA involves review by Institutional Review Board (IRB), Pharmacy and Poisons Board, National Commission for Science, Technology and Innovation and Ministry of Health, all …


A Rare Occurrence Of Ectopic Parathyroid Carcinoma Presenting As A Case Of Recurrent Fractures, Saad Bin Zafar Mahmood, Aisha Jamal, Zain Mushtaq, Qamar Masood 2023 Aga Khan University

A Rare Occurrence Of Ectopic Parathyroid Carcinoma Presenting As A Case Of Recurrent Fractures, Saad Bin Zafar Mahmood, Aisha Jamal, Zain Mushtaq, Qamar Masood

Section of Internal Medicine

Ectopic parathyroid tumors are uncommon, accounting for only 6% of parathyroid adenomas, and even fewer cases are attributed to parathyroid carcinomas. While ectopic parathyroid carcinoma in the anterior mediastinum is a rare condition, the occurrence of recurrent skeletal fractures in the presence of mild hypercalcemia is even rarer. In this report, we present the case of a 52-year-old man with a medical history of hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and a previous right-sided intertrochanteric fracture of the femur one year earlier. He presented to the emergency room with left-sided hip pain and shortness of breath due to volume overload. Laboratory tests …


The Function Of Ask1 In Sepsis And Stress-Induced Disorders, John Kostyak, Steven McKenzie, Ulhas Naik 2023 Thomas Jefferson University

The Function Of Ask1 In Sepsis And Stress-Induced Disorders, John Kostyak, Steven Mckenzie, Ulhas Naik

Cardeza Foundation for Hematologic Research

Apoptosis signal-regulating kinase 1 (ASK1) is a serine-threonine kinase that is ubiquitously expressed in nucleated cells and is responsible for the activation of multiple mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) to regulate cell stress. Activation of ASK1 via cellular stress leads to activation of downstream signaling components, activation of transcription factors, and proinflammatory cytokine production. ASK1 is also expressed in anucleate platelets and is a key player in platelet activation as it is important for signaling. Interestingly, the mechanism of ASK1 activation is cell type-dependent. In this review we will explore how ASK1 regulates a variety of cellular processes from innate immune …

Fluorescent Peptide For Detecting Factor Xiiia Activity And Fibrin In Whole Blood Clots Forming Under Flow, Yue Liu, Jennifer Crossen, Timothy J. Stalker, Scott L. Diamond 2023 Thomas Jefferson University

Fluorescent Peptide For Detecting Factor Xiiia Activity And Fibrin In Whole Blood Clots Forming Under Flow, Yue Liu, Jennifer Crossen, Timothy J. Stalker, Scott L. Diamond

Cardeza Foundation for Hematologic Research

Background

During clotting, thrombin generates fibrin monomers and activates plasma-derived transglutaminase factor (F) XIIIa; collagen and thrombin-activated platelets offer thrombin-independent cellular FXIIIa (cFXIIIa) for clotting. Detecting fibrin on collagen and tissue factor surfaces in whole blood clotting typically uses complex reagents like fluorescent fibrinogen or antifibrin antibody.

Objectives

We want to test whether the peptide using the α2- antiplasmin crosslinking mechanism by FXIIIa is a useful tool in both monitoring FXIIIa activity, and visualize and monitor fibrin formation, deposition, and extent of crosslinking within fibrin structures in whole blood clots formed under flow.

Methods

We tested a fluorescent peptide derived …
