Cognitive Function and Quality of Life in Vorinostat-Treated Patients after Matched Unrelated Donor Myeloablative Conditioning Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation

Authors: Flora Hoodin, Leah LaLonde, Josh Errickson, Kristen Votruba, Rachel Kentor, Erin Gatza, Pavan Reddy, Sung Won Choi

Journal: Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation

Year Published: 2019

Myeloablative conditioning allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) puts patients at greater risk for significant cognitive and quality of life decline compared with recipients of reduced-intensity conditioning or autologous HCT. Vorinostat, a histone deacetylase inhibitor, has been […]

Authors: Jane Ashby, Caroline Foster, Lucy Garvey, Tania Wan, Joanna Allsop, Yasotharan Paramesparan, Simon D Taylor-Robinson, Sarah Fidler, Alan Winston

Journal: HIV Clinical Trials

Year Published: 2015

Background: Perinatally acquired HIV-infected (PaHIV) young adults undergo neurodevelopment in the presence of HIV infection and antiretroviral therapy, which may lead to neurocognitive (NC) impairment. Knowledge of NC function in this group is sparse and control […]

Cerebral function tests reveal differences in HIV-infected subjects with and without chronic HCV co-infection

Authors: A Thiyagarajan, L J Garvey, H Pflugrad, P Maruff, G Scullard, J Main, S Taylor-Robsinson, A Winston

Journal: Clinical Microbiology and Infection

Year Published: 2010

Neurocognitive impairment (NCI) remains prevalent in HIV-infected subjects despite effective combination antiretroviral therapy (CART). In subjects without evidence of hepatic decompensation, NCI is also a feature of chronic HCV infection. The present study aimed to examine […]
