RICMAC is an international, multi-centre, investigator-based, open-label, randomized phase III trial that involved 18 transplant units in seven countries between May 2004 and December 2012. A total of 129 patients aged 18-65 years were enrolled. In this trial reduced-intensity conditioning (busulfan-based RIC) is compared to standard myeloablative conditioning regimen (MAC) followed by allogeneic stem cell transplantation from related or unrelated donors in patients with MDS or secondary AML. Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of clonal hematopoietic disorders that are characterised by abnormal cellular maturation that results in cytopenias and variable risk of progression to acute leukemia. It was to address the needs of patients suffering from MDS that the RICMAC trial was set up. Conditioning is the very high dose chemotherapy treatment that is given in the days before the stem cell transplant. Reducing the intensity of the conditioning regimen may lead to less toxic effects in patients, but there is concern about a higher risk of relapse. The results of the trial show that engraftment was comparable between both groups. The cumulative incidence of non-relapse mortality after 1 year was 17% after RIC and 25% after MAC. The incidence of relapse at 2 years was 17% after RIC and 15% after MAC, which resulted in a 2-year relapse-free survival and overall survival of 62% and 76% after RIC, and 58% and 63%, respectively, after MAC. Trial Principal Chief Investigator Professor Nicolaus Kröger from University Hospital Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany, said "our study shed new lights on expected benefits of reduced-intensity conditioning regimen that can be offered as a curative treatment approach especially in older patients with MDS". This trial was supported in part by a grant from Pierre Fabre

A method of constructing a shaft in the earth for use as, for example, a launch shaft or a retrieval shaft, may include several steps. One step includes installing a secant pile wall into the earth. The secant pile wall encloses a portion of the earth. Another step includes excavating the portion of the earth enclosed by the secant pile wall. The excavated portion leaves an interior of the shaft and exposes an inside surface of the secant pile wall. Yet another step includes placing a metal liner within the interior of the shaft. And yet another step includes partially or more filling a space located between the inside surface of the secant pile wall and the metal liner with a grout material.


An auto-titration pressure support system (30) comprises a pressure generating system (32) for generating a flow of breathing gas at a selectable pressure level; a patient circuit (36) having a first end for coupling to the pressure generating system and a second end for coupling to an airway of a patient; a monitoring system (44) associated with the patient circuit or the pressure generating system and adapted to measure a parameter indicative of a flow of gas in such a patients airway and to output a flow signal indicative thereof; and a controller (50) coupled to the monitoring system and the pressure generating system, for controlling the pressure generating system based on the output of the monitoring system, wherein the controller determines a skewness of a patients inspiratory waveforms from the output of the flow sensor and controls the pressure generating system according to the skewness determination.
