  • Risk and Protective Factors for COVID-19 Infection among Pregnant Women
           with Sickle Cell Trait

    • Abstract: Pregnant women and individuals with sickle cell trait (SCT) and underlying comorbidities are both independently more vulnerable to severe illness from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) compared to nonpregnant women and those without SCT. However, our understanding of the specific factors influencing susceptibility to COVID-19 infection among pregnant women with SCT is currently constrained by limited available data. This study aims to determine the risk and protective factors that influence the likelihood of COVID-19 infection in this population. A retrospective analysis was done among 151 women with SCT in the reproductive age group. Multivariable analysis was performed to determine the various factors affecting COVID-19 infection among pregnant women with SCT. The study found that COVID-19-vaccinated pregnant women with SCT had a 90% lower risk of contracting COVID-19 and were 9 times more likely to have a COVID-19 infection if they had a history of pulmonary conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The present study further emphasizes the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine in preventing infection and safeguarding the health of pregnant women with SCT, particularly those with underlying comorbidities.

  • A Pharmacist-Managed Hydroxyurea Prescribing Protocol Improves Uptake and
           Optimization among Patients with Sickle Cell Disease

    • Abstract: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a common genetic disorder with potentially serious sequelae that can be effectively treated with hydroxyurea. Despite its favorable benefit-risk profile, hydroxyurea uptake in patients with SCD is low. A pilot study was conducted at the Southern Alberta Rare Blood and Bleeding Disorders (SARBBDs) Comprehensive Care Program between January 2020 and September 2023 to assess the implementation of a pharmacist-led protocol for supporting the uptake of hydroxyurea among eligible patients with SCD and optimizing its dosing. The protocol standardized the prescription, monitoring, dose titration, and patient counselling by a clinic pharmacist. The number of patients enrolled in the SARBBDs program increased from 98 in January 2020 to 168 in 2023. During this period, the proportion of patients on hydroxyurea increased from 37.8% to 62.5%, the proportion of patients on hydroxyurea who were at a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) increased from 35.1% to 63.8%, and the average hemoglobin F level increased from 13.9% to 19.7%. The mean time to reach MTD was 10 months and required eight pharmacist interventions, six laboratory assessments, and three dose increases. Hydroxyurea continuation rates were high, with most discontinuations resulting from loss to follow-up or transition to a transfusion management strategy. This real-world pilot study demonstrated that implementation of a pharmacist-led prescribing and monitoring protocol nearly doubled hydroxyurea uptake and achievement of MTD in patients with SCD managed in a rare blood disorders clinic.

  • Exploring the Dynamics of Sleep Deprivation: Insights into Complete Blood
           Count and Coagulation Parameters in a Case-Control Study

    • Abstract: Background. The lack of preceding research in Sudan emphasizes the importance of this study, which contributes critical data to the global understanding of sleep-related health effects. This study investigates the complex relationship between sleep deprivation and blood-related factors, particularly focusing on full blood count and coagulation parameters. Methods. From January to March 2022, a case-control study was conducted in Kosti, Sudan. A control group of 11 healthy 23–33-year-olds (6 men and 5 women) had regular sleep patterns. Six men and five women ages 23–33 were chosen for this sleep-deprived case study. The case group was deprived of sleep from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. for three days and allowed to sleep normally during the day. Daily at 7:00 a.m., antecubital vein blood was drawn. The ACL 7000 coagulation analyzer and Sysmex fully automated hematology analyzers were used for coagulation and whole blood count analysis. Data analysis included descriptive and inferential approaches like the Mann–Whitney U test for group comparisons. Results. The study found no significant differences in total white blood cell counts reported between case and control groups (). The case group had a substantial drop in lymphocyte counts on day 3 (). The third day showed significant differences in neutrophil and eosinophil levels ( and 0.000, respectively). The difference in hemoglobin and hematocrit on day 3 was statistically significant (). Platelet counts were stable. Both groups’ prothrombin times were unaffected. On all three days, groups had significant differences in activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) (). Therefore, the intrinsic coagulation system may have changed. Conclusion. This study demonstrates the complex link between sleep deprivation, coagulation indicators, and complete blood count. Monitoring blood indicators in poor sleep helps explain fundamental mechanisms and medicinal implications.

  • Magnitude of Thrombocytopenia and Associated Factors among Pregnant Women
           Attending the Antenatal Care Service Unit of Wachemo University Nigist
           Ellen Mohammed Comprehensive Specialized Hospital Hosanna, Southern
           Ethiopia

    • Abstract: Background. Thrombocytopenia is the second most common hematological disorder in pregnancy after anemia worldwide and affects 7-8% of all pregnancies. Pregnant women with thrombocytopenia have complications of excessive bleeding during or after childbirth, exudation at the cesarean section, and neonatal thrombocytopenia. Therefore, the main aim of this study was to assess the magnitude of thrombocytopenia and its associated factors among pregnant women attending the Antenatal Care Service Unit of Wachemo University Nigist Ellen Mohammed Comprehensive Specialized Hospital Hosanna, Southern Ethiopia. Materials and Methods. A cross-sectional study was conducted from June 1 to August 30, 2022, involving 209 consecutive pregnant women who came to the hospital during the study period for antenatal care follow-up. Sociodemographic, reproductive, and other clinical data were collected using a structured questionnaire. A four-milliliter venous blood specimen was collected for complete blood analysis and peripheral blood smear. The data were analyzed by using SPSS version 25. Descriptive statistical analysis and bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed. A value ≤0.05 was considered to indicate statistical significance. Results. The overall magnitude of thrombocytopenia among pregnant women was 14.8% (95% CI: 10, 19.6). The prevalence of mild, moderate, and severe thrombocytopenia was 77.4%, 16.1%, and 6.5%, respectively. Multivariate logistic regression revealed that rural residence (AOR = 2.6 and 95% CI = 1.02, 7.12), cigarette smoking (AOR = 8.4 and 95% CI = 1.86, 38), anemia (AOR = 8.3 and 95% CI = 2.7, 25.6), and alcohol consumption (AOR = 8.2 and 95% CI = 2.17–31) were significantly independent factors associated with the development of thrombocytopenia. Conclusion. The magnitude of thrombocytopenia in this study was 14.8%. Rural residence, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, and anemia were significantly associated with thrombocytopenia. Therefore, the platelet count should be routinely determined during antenatal care visits for proper diagnosis and to minimize bleeding during and/or after childbirth.

  • Prevalence of Stroke in Individuals with Sickle Cell Disease Pre- and
           during Hydroxyurea Uses: A Descriptive Cross-Sectional Study in Tanzania

    • Abstract: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an inherited blood disorder that leads to a variety of complications, including stroke. The use of hydroxyurea (HU) is reported to lessen the frequency and burden of stroke in SCD patients. However, less is known about the prevalence of stroke in SCD patients pre- and during the use of HU in sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries. Therefore, the study assessed stroke prevalence before and during uses of hydroxyurea among SCD patients in Tanzania. A hospital-based descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted at the sickle cell clinics in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from April 2023 to May 2023. A total of 228 participants were recruited, and data on demographic and clinical characteristics, HU use, and history of stroke were collected using a checklist from the respective patients’ medical records and verbal communication with the patients or caregivers. Data analysis was done using SPSS software version 25, and findings are summarized using frequency and percentages. Out of 228 enrolled SCD patients, 124 (54.4%) were females, 109 (47.8%) were aged between 6 and 12 years, 226 (99.1%) were not married, 181 (79.4%) had primary education, and 209 (95%) were unemployed. The prevalence of stroke pre-HU use was 28 (12.3%) and 6 (2.6%) after starting using HU. Out of 6 with stroke after starting using HU, 3 (50%) had a history of stroke pre-HU uses. The study showed that the prevalence of stroke among SCD patients is significantly reduced after HU use. The findings suggest the need for stakeholders to implement measures to ensure eligible SCD patients are kept on HU.

  • Challenges and Outcomes of the First Stem Cell Transplant Program in
           Tanzania, East Africa

    • Abstract: Introduction. Due to the significant resources involved in creating HSCT programs there is a significant disparity in the availability of this treatment modality between the developed and developing countries. This manuscript details the process and the outcomes of the first HSCT program in East Africa which was started at Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. Materials and Methods. Information and data were collected on the processes which had been implemented for starting the HSCT program at MNH. The details of the collaborations, training, infrastructure development, and acquisition of the biomedical equipment, as well as the actual process for HSCT, as well as the outcomes of treatment are described. Observations. The project has been detailed in 4 stages for ease of description: Stage 1: Preparatory work which was performed by the Government of Tanzania, as well as the administrators and clinicians from MNH (July 2017-September 2021). Stage 2: Exploratory gap analysis by the teams from MNH and International Haematology Consortium of HCG Hospital, India (HCG-IHC) in October 2021. Stage 3: Activities for closure of gaps (November 2021). Stage 4: Stem Cell Transplantation Camps (November 2021 to March 2022). 11 peripheral blood stem cell transplants were done in two camps, November 2021 (5 patients), and February 2022 (6 patients). 10 patients underwent autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for multiple myeloma and 1 for lymphoma. The median duration of hospital stay was 19 ± 6 days. The median time for neutrophil engraftment, it was on 8.8 ± 0.8 days, and for platelet engraftment was 9.6 ± 2.4 days. Progression-free survival was 100%, and there was no mortality. Conclusion. Commonalities in the socioeconomic challenges in developing countries can be leveraged to create robust HSCT programs in other developing countries.

  • The Association of Anticoagulation Intensity with Outcomes in Hospitalized
           COVID-19 Patients

    • Abstract: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk is increased in patients infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). A key question was whether increased intensity of anticoagulation would help prevent VTE and improve patient outcomes, including transfer to the intensive care unit (ICU) and mortality. At the start of the coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) pandemic, our institution, Boston Medical Center, instituted a VTE risk stratification protocol based on patients’ initial D-dimer levels, medical history, and presence of thrombosis to determine whether they should receive standard-dose prophylaxis, high-dose prophylaxis, or therapeutic anticoagulation. We performed a retrospective observational cohort study examining the association of degree of anticoagulation with outcomes in 915 hospitalized COVID-19 patients hospitalized initially on the general inpatient wards between March 1,, 2020, and June 1, 2020. Patients directly hospitalized in the ICU were excluded. Most, 813 patients (89%), in our cohort were on standard-dose prophylaxis; 32 patients (3.5%) received high-dose prophylaxis; 70 patients (7.7%), were treated with therapeutic anticoagulation. VTE occurred in 45 patients (4.9%), and the overall in-hospital mortality rate was 5.4% (49 deaths). On multivariable analysis of clinical outcomes in relation to type of anticoagulation, in the high-dose prophylaxis group, there was a trend towards increased in-hospital mortality (odds ratio 2.4 (0.8–7.5, 95% CI)) and increased ICU transfer (odds ratio 2.2 (0.9-5.7, 95% CI)). Our results suggest that patients receiving high-dose prophylaxis had more severe disease that was not mitigated by intermediate-dose anticoagulation.

  • The Role of Methylation in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and Its Prognostic
           and Therapeutic Impacts in the Disease: A Systematic Review

    • Abstract: Epigenetic regulation has been thoroughly investigated in recent years and has emerged as an important aspect of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) biology. Characteristic aberrant features such as methylation patterns and global DNA hypomethylation were the early findings of the research during the last decades. The investigation in this field led to the identification of a large number of genes where methylation features correlated with important clinical and laboratory parameters. Gene-specific analyses investigated methylation in the gene body enhancer regions as well as promoter regions. The findings included genes and proteins involved in key pathways that play central roles in the pathophysiology of the disease. Τhe application of these findings beyond the theoretical understanding can not only lead to the creation of prognostic and predictive models and scores but also to the design of novel therapeutic agents. The following is a review focusing on the present knowledge about single gene/gene promoter methylation or mRNA expression in CLL cases as well as records of older data that have been published in past papers.

  • Clinical Profile and Treatment of Multiple Myeloma at a Tertiary Hospital
           in Kenya: A Five-Year Retrospective Review

    • Abstract: Background. Multiple myeloma (MM) is a chronic B-cell malignancy that involves proliferation of neoplastic clonal plasma cells in the bone marrow with circulating monoclonal immunoglobulins or constituent chains in serum or urine or both. It is a rare cancer with a lifetime risk of 0.76% and an age-adjusted incidence rate of 2.5–7.2 per 100,000 in high-income countries. There is a paucity of local data on the morbidity and treatment of MM. Methods. This was a single-centre descriptive retrospective study at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH). The study population included inpatients and outpatients with a documented diagnosis of MM managed between 1st January 2014 and 31st December 2018. Demographic data, pathology reports, laboratory results, and clinical findings were transcribed and uploaded to a database, and data analysis was done using Stata 16® software. Results. A total of 207 patient files were reviewed. The median age at presentation was 60 years with a slight male preponderance. Bone pain was the predominant complaint in 59% (139/207) of patients, with 17% of patients presenting with paraparesis or paraplegia. For patients who underwent imaging, osteolytic bone lesions were identified in 90.6% (126/139). Anaemia was present in 71% (147/207) patients, hypercalcemia in 55.4%, and renal dysfunction in 38.2%. There were 25 different treatment regimens prescribed, with 13 patients (7%) being on bortezomib-based triplet therapy. Conclusions. MM in KNH is a disease of the middle aged, affecting men and women almost equally and presenting mainly with bone pain and anaemia. Although there seems to be a general improvement in diagnosis and care, access to novel and less toxic agents for treatment is still wanting.

  • An Approach to the Investigation of Thrombocytosis: Differentiating
           between Essential Thrombocythemia and Secondary Thrombocytosis

    • Abstract: Background. Thrombocytosis is a common reason for referral to Hematology. Differentiating between secondary causes of thrombocytosis and essential thrombocythemia (ET) is often clinically challenging. A practical diagnostic approach to identify secondary thrombocytosis could reduce overinvestigation such as next generation sequencing (NGS) panel. Methods and Results. All adult patients with thrombocytosis (≥450 × 109/L) who underwent molecular testing at a single tertiary care centre between January 1, 2018 and May 31, 2021 were evaluated. Clinical and laboratory variables were compared between patients with secondary thrombocytosis vs. ET. Clinical variables included smoking, thrombosis, splenectomy, active malignancy, chronic inflammatory disease, and iron deficiency anemia. Laboratory variables included complete blood count (CBC), ferritin, and myeloid mutations detected by NGS. The overall yield of molecular testing was 52.4%; 92.1% of which were mutations in JAK2, CALR, and/or MPL. Clinical factors predictive of ET included history of arterial thrombosis (); active malignancy, chronic inflammatory disease, splenectomy, and iron deficiency were associated with secondary thrombocytosis (). A diagnosis of ET was associated with higher hemoglobin, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), red cell distribution width (RDW), and mean platelet volume (MPV), while secondary thrombocytosis was associated with higher body mass index, white blood cells, and neutrophils ().Conclusion. A practical approach to investigating patients with persistent thrombocytosis based on clinical characteristics such as active malignancy, chronic inflammatory disease, splenectomy, and iron deficiency may assist in accurately identifying patients more likely to have secondary causes of thrombocytosis and reduce overinvestigation, particularly costly molecular testing.

  • Presence and Onset of Chronic Kidney Disease as a Factor Involved in the
           Poor Prognosis of Patients with Essential Thrombocythemia

    • Abstract: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, thrombosis, and all-cause death. However, few studies have examined the association between CKD and the prognosis of patients with essential thrombocythemia (ET). We collected ET patients who met the WHO classification 2017 and performed a retrospective clinical study to clarify the association between the presence and onset of CKD and prognosis. Of 73 patients who met the diagnostic criteria, 21 (28.8%) had CKD at the time of ET diagnosis. The age of patients with CKD was significantly higher, and a high proportion of these patients had the JAK2V617F gene mutation. The presence of CKD was a risk factor for the prognosis (hazard ratio (HR): 3.750, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.196–11.760, ), and the survival curve was significantly poorer. Furthermore, we analyzed patients without CKD at the time of ET diagnosis using the onset of CKD as a time-dependent variable and identified the onset of CKD as a risk factor for the prognosis (HR: 9.155, 95% CI: 1.542–54.370, ). In patients with renal hypofunction at the time of ET diagnosis or those with a reduction in the kidney function during follow-up, strict renal function monitoring at regular intervals is necessary.

This was a cohort study of 209 patients followed from 1994 to 2022. All hemoglobin electrophoresis-confirmed SS sickle cell patients over 40 years were included. A descriptive study of epidemiological, diagnostic, therapeutic, and evolutionary data was used to assess morbidity and mortality. Results. Sex ratio (M/F) was 0.6. Median age was 47 (41–75). According to morbidity, 95.1% had less than 3 vaso-occlusive crises/year. Acute anemia was the most frequent complication (52.63%). Chronic complications were noted in 32.5%. At diagnosis, mean hemoglobin was 8.1 g/dl ± 1.9, HbS was 86.5 ± 10, and HbF was 9.4 ± 7.6. Number of patients transfused was 66%. We noted that 8.1% of patients died, 29.2% were lost to follow-up, and 62.7% were still being followed up. The risk factors identified for death were geographical origin, comorbidity, high HbS, low HbF, and thrombocytosis. Conclusion. This study shows that homozygous SCD is increasingly becoming an adult disease and that it can be carried into old age in Africa. Advanced age over 40 is marked by an upsurge in chronic complications, making it essential to set up a screening program and to organize multidisciplinary follow-up.
