    Research on aplastic anaemia has until recently been limited to clinical description, morphology and epidemiology. New methods to culture haemopoietic cells, and advances in our knowledge of proliferation and differentiation in the haemopoietic cell a new area of scientific interest for this "prototype" of haemopoietic failure.   Almost 1, new cases of aplastic anemia occur each year in the United States alone. Although the disease can affect anyone, children and young adults make up the majority of cases. Stem cells in the bone marrow are normally responsible for producing blood. In aplastic anemia, the body’s immune system appears to destroy these stem cells.

    As per available reports about 10 relevant journals, 20 Conferences, 10 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to aplastic anemia and about articles are being published on aplastic anemia.. Aplastic anemia is a condition where the bone marrow fails to produce enough blood cells. The cells in the bone marrow itself are damaged and so white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets.   This book takes account of the most recent findings in laboratory research and clinical trials to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date reference on the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of aplastic anemia, a life-threatening hematological condition characterised by failure of cell regeneration mechanisms in bone s: 1.

    Aplastic anaemia is a serious condition affecting the blood, where the bone marrow and stem cells do not produce enough blood cells. It is also called bone marrow failure and can happen suddenly (acute) or develop over a period of time (chronic).

Aplastic anemia is caused by the destruction of blood-forming stem cells in bone stem cells normally develop into three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

The symptoms of aplastic anemia vary depending on how severe it is and how low blood counts are. ferent disease. The bone marrow also is assessed for protein expression of malignant (cancer) cells, which can indicate leukemia, and chromosomal abnormalities, which can diagnose other diseases.

In children with aplastic anemia, protein expression and chromosome tests are normal. A bone marrow biopsy is necessary to diagnose aplastic anemia.

in people with aplastic anemia, the bone marrow does not produce enough blood cells, including red blood cells. this can be caused by a host of conditions, from hepatitis, epstein-barr, to hiv. Myer SA, Oliva J. Severe aplastic anemia and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

The targets, mainly CD34+ cells, are very few or absent in the aplastic bone marrow, and minimal numbers of colonies derive from committed progenitors in semisolid media, all reflecting the severe reduction in hematopoietic progenitor cells that defines the disease.

What is aplastic anemia. Aplastic anemia is a rare disease but serious blood disorder caused by a decrease in the number of all types of blood cells that bone marrow produces 1).Normally, the bone marrow produces a sufficient number of new red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets for normal body function.

Treatment for aplastic anemia varies depending on the severity. While some individuals with mild to moderate aplastic anemia may not require treatment, for others, treatment may include: Blood transfusions to keep blood cell counts at acceptable levels; Blood and marrow stem cell transplants to replace damaged stem cells with health ones from a donor (another person).

Finding a PNH clone in patients with aplastic anemia can be helpful in excluding congenital forms of the disease. It is important to order the test on both red cells and granulocytes. Epidemiology. Aplastic anemia is a rare disorder, with an incidence of approximately to 7 cases per million individuals per year.

2,3 A recent Scandinavian study reported that the incidence of aplastic anemia among the Swedish population is cases per million individuals per year, with a median age at diagnosis of 60 years and a slight female predominance (52% versus 48%, respectively.

InDrew was diagnosed with aplastic anemia, a rare blood disorder. Because of a stem cell transplant, he was cured—and now, he has his mind set on becoming a pediatric oncologist. Aplastic anemia is a disorder of the hematopoietic stem cell that results in a loss of blood cell precursors, hypoplasia or aplasia of bone marrow, and cytopenias in two or more cell lines (red blood cells, white blood cells, and/or platelets).

Symptoms result from anemia, thrombocytopenia (petechiae, bleeding), or leukopenia (infections). Diagnostic tests. The complete blood count in patients with aplastic anemia shows a “pancytopenia” meaning that there is a profound absence of the granulocytes among the white blood cells, a thrombocytopenia (platelet count far be per micro liter), missing red blood cells and low or missing reticulocytes.

In part this is driven by the prominence of SCT in the management of children with idiopathic marrow failure 11 as well as its role in the management of those with congenital disease.

Aplastic anemia is diagnosed with blood tests to count the types of blood cells circulating in the blood. When two or three of the cell counts is extremely low, that is a strong indication of aplastic anemia. A definitive diagnosis is made with a bone marrow biopsy.

The Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation is the world's leading nonprofit health organization dedicated to supporting patients and families living with aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), and related bone marrow failure diseases.

The Foundation provides answers, support, and hope to thousands of patients and their families. Aplastic anemia occurs because of damage to stem cells inside bone marrow, which is the sponge-like tissue within your bones.

Many diseases and conditions can damage the stem cells in bone marrow. As a result, the bone marrow makes fewer red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The most common cause of bone marrow damage is from your immune system attacking and destroying the stem.

Inherited aplastic anemia is caused by gene defects, and is most common in children and young adults.

Aplastic anemia is a rare but extremely serious disorder that results from the unexplained failure of the bone marrow to produce blood cells. In all probability you had never heard of this disease until the time of diagnosis.
