Akiyama M, Yanagisawa T, Yuza Y, Yokoi K, Ariga M, Fujisawa K, Y, Eto Y: Successful treatment of Diamond-Blackfan Anemia with metoclopramide.
The aim in these cases was to provide stem cells for transplantation to children who are suffering from leukemia and a rare condition called Diamond-Blackfan Anemia (DBA).
The treated diseases have included thalassemia, Fanconi anemia, Diamond-Blackfan anemia, Wiscott-Aldrich syndrome, and several other anemias and leukemias.
Although SDS may be representative of other inherited BM failure syndromes with a leukemic propensity, such as Fanconi anemia, Diamond-Blackfan anemia, or dyskeratosis congenita, studies of each of these disorders are needed to investigate this hypothesis.
The first cohort consisted of 59 Fanconi patients (30 males and 29 females; median age, 13 years; age range, 1-53 years) and 27 non-Fanconi patients (9 males and 18 females; median age, 26 years; age range, 5-56 years) with acquired aplastic anemia (n = 19), paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (n = 2), dyskeratosis congenita (n = 3), Diamond-Blackfan anemia (n = 1), Schwachman syndrome (n = 1), or Glanzmann disease (n = 1).
