Abstract

Gastrointestinal (GI) graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) is a common and severe complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, but clinical and histological features are unspecific. The aim of this study was to correlate the histological GI GVHD grade with the clinical outcomes. In a retrospective study of 112 patients with clinically suspected GI GVHD, colonic biopsies were reviewed by three pathologists without knowledge of the corresponding clinical data and classified in four scores, according to the NIH Consensus Project recommendations: no GVHD, possible, probable, and unequivocal GVHD. At the end of the study, the histological and clinical data were confronted with the following results: clinical diagnosis of GI GVHD was established for 70 patients (62.5%) and histological scores correlated well with the clinical diagnosis (p < 0.001) and particularly with the prognosis (p < 0.05).When severe lesions were observed, the 1 year overall survival declined to 9%. None of the features reported in the literature to support GVHD diagnosis, eosinophil count, endocrine cells aggregate, immunohistochemical analysis (cytomegalovirus, CD123, chromogranin), did not help us for diagnosis. So routine histopathology alone without immunohistochemistry is a strong and reproducible tool to diagnose GI GVHD with the help of clinical and biological information, and most importantly, histological grading proved to be a powerful prognostic value.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 April 2018.
All research outputs
#8,002,250
of 12,761,472 outputs
Outputs from Virchows Archiv
#611
of 1,076 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#216,766
of 387,710 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Virchows Archiv
#20
of 36 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,761,472 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,076 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.1. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 387,710 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 36 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
