Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation: Clinical Research and Practice
Mary J. Laughlin, Hillard M. Lazarus
Humana Press, 2003 - Medical - 454 pages
Internationally recognized physicians and researchers review both the basics of allogeneic stem cell transplantation and recent advances in the field, particularly as they relate to antitumor effects and graft-versus-host disease They also provide unique decision-tree analyses to guide clinicians in selecting and managing their allogeneic transplant patients. The innovations discussed cover a variety of areas, ranging from stem cell mobilization in normal donors, to indications for allogeneic transplantation other than hematologic malignancies, to the use of nonmyeloablative conditioning regimens. The authors also explore new developments in the optimal selection of unrelated allogeneic grafts (e.g., matched unrelated donor, partially mismatched family member, or umbilical cord blood), the use allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell vs marrow-derived grafts for transplantation, and the kinetics of immune reconstitution after transplantation.
