Biomarker Found That Detects Myeloma Patients Who Will Benefit from Stem Cell Transplant

A study has recently shown that a biomarker called CHEK1 detects which myeloma patients might benefit from a stem cell transplant. In an effort to provide a better understanding of multiple myeloma disease processes, patient responses to treatments, and patient relapse, researchers are using patient data from the the largest and most comprehensive study providing new […]

New method for organ transplant monitoring promises better care for patients

Recent findings alleviate a major barrier to using cfDNA detection instead of costly and risky biopsies to determine if a patient is accepting or rejecting an organ. Cell-free DNA (cfDNA), essentially fragments of dead cells derived from an organ, can be detected in a patient’s bloodstream and used as a proxy for the organ’s health. The […]

NIH grant for Pitt/UPMC is aimed at improving viability of organs for transplant

Researchers at UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh are working to widen the currently 30-minute time span that abdominal organs are viable for transplant.  Proven successful in pig models, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded the research team a four-year grant to continue to test the efficacy of a stent designed to improve […]


Cord blood is used to treat over 80 life-threatening diseases, such as leukemia, lymphoma, and sickle cell anemia, and is proving critical to new areas of regenerative medicine. Since 1988 there have been over 35,000 cord blood transplants worldwide. Yet despite the obvious need for cord blood stem cells, cord blood is being disposed of […]

T cells help the immune system respond to specific pathogens and other threats – including the threat posed by a transplanted organ. Researchers have discovered that each of the body’s organs uses its own unique set of T cell “militias” to help fight off infections. Methods for identifying these organ-specific T cells and tracking them in […]

High-dose influenza vaccine better for solid organ transplant recipients

Solid organ transplant recipients are on lifelong immunosuppression medication and are particularly vulnerable to flu complications. A recent study from researchers at the University Health Network, University of Toronto, shows that a high dose flu vaccine demonstrated “significantly better immunogenicity” as compared to a standard-dose vaccine.  Influenza infection is common in transplant recipients vaccinated with […]
