Background Little is known about the impact of hospital trajectory on survival and functional decline of older critically ill patients. We evaluate 6-month outcomes after admission to: intensive care units (ICU), intermediate care units (IMCU) or acute medical wards (AMW). Methods Data from the randomised prospective multicentre clinical trial ICE...

Purpose: Older critically ill patients with COVID-19 have been the most vulnerable during the ongoing pandemic, with men being more prone to hospitalization and severe disease than women. We aimed to explore sex-specific differences in treatment and outcome after intensive care unit (ICU) admission in this cohort. Methods: We performed a sex-spe...

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) patients who relapse after autologous-stem-cell- transplantation (auto-SCT) have traditionally had a poor prognosis. We analyzed 1781 adult HL patients who relapsed between 2006 and 2017 after a first auto-SCT. The 4-year overall survival (OS) after relapse continuously increased from 32% for patients relapsing in 2006–2008, t...

Background: health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is an important patient-centred outcome in patients surviving ICU admission for COVID-19. It is currently not clear which domains of the HRQoL are most affected. Objective: to quantify HRQoL in order to identify areas of interventions. Design: prospective observation study. Setting: admissions to E...

Mature T-cell lymphomas constitute the most common indication of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) in lymphomas. Large studies evaluating contemporary outcomes of allo-HCT in mature T-cell lymphomas, relative to commonly used donor sources are not available. Included in this registry study were adult patients who had undergon...

Purpose Frailty is a valuable predictor for outcome in elderly ICU patients, and has been suggested to be used in various decision-making processes prior to and during an ICU admission. There are many instruments developed to assess frailty, but few of them can be used in emergency situations. In this setting the clinical frailty scale (CFS) is fre...

Background The COVID-19 pandemic has led highly developed healthcare systems to the brink of collapse due to the large numbers of patients being admitted into hospitals. One of the potential prognostic indicators in patients with COVID-19 is frailty. The degree of frailty could be used to assist both the triage into intensive care, and decisions re...

Background Intensive care unit (ICU) patients age 90 years or older represent a growing subgroup and place a huge financial burden on health care resources despite the benefit being unclear. This leads to ethical problems. The present investigation assessed the differences in outcome between nonagenarian and octogenarian ICU patients. Methods We i...

Introduction: Post-transplant cyclophosphamide (PTCy) is a standard GVHD prophylactic approach for haploidentical hematopoietic cell transplantation (haploHCT). Retrospective studies in patients with lymphoma showed lower chronic GVHD in haploHCT with PTCy-based GVHD prophylaxis compared to matched unrelated donor (MUD) HCT with calcineurin-based G...

Background Sepsis is one of the most frequent reasons for acute intensive care unit (ICU) admission of very old patients and mortality rates are high. However, the impact of pre-existing physical and cognitive function on long-term outcome of ICU patients ≥ 80 years old (very old intensive care patients (VIPs)) with sepsis is unclear. Objective To...

Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is curative for a proportion of patients with relapsed/refractory (R/R) Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). However, there is a small group of patients with high-risk of relapse after ASCT that might benefit from other approaches. We conducted a retrospective analysis on 126 patients treated with tandem...

Salvage chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (auto-SCT) results in the cure of around 50% of patients with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) failing first line therapy. In historical data, patients who progressed after auto-SCT had a poor outcome, with a median overall survival (OS) of around 1-2 years. Significant progress has been achieved i...

Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (auto-HSCT) is the standard of care for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) who relapse/progress after first line chemoimmunotherapy. Long-term outcome of those who relapse after transplant is poor. We present the results of a retrospective study of 256 adult patients reported to th...
Article
Purpose Premorbid conditions affect prognosis of acutely-ill aged patients. Several lines of evidence suggest geriatric syndromes need to be assessed but little is known on their relative effect on the 30-day survival after ICU admission. The primary aim of this study was to describe the prevalence of frailty, cognition decline and activity of dail...
Article
Around half of patients with Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL) who progress or relapse through first line therapy can be cured with salvage chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT). However, this leaves approximately 50% of patients that will relapse after ASCT. The pivotal phase II SG035-00303 trial demonstrated that these patients can...
