This fact sheet reviews bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) as they relate to the cancer treatment.
An assessment of depression in patients before autologous or allogeneic HCT demonstrated that the condition impacts overall survival and risk of GVDH in patients with hematologic malignancies.
A study presented at the 2016 Annual Meeting of ASH assessed the impact of additional interventions on progression-free survival in patients with multiple myeloma.
Frontline treatment with rituximab plus high-dose sequential chemotherapy with autologous HSCT failed to improve progression-free or overall survival compared with R-CHOP in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) is found to increase expression of a genetic code used to make proteins, leading to a biological aging of immune cells equivalent to 30 years of chronological age.
Repeat doses of ipilimumab can restore a complete remission in patients with advanced blood cancers who relapse after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (alloHSCT).
Recent results from a multicenter, phase 2 trial suggest that patients with HIV and aggressive lymphoma should receive autologous stem cell transplant as standard of care. Risk of serious complications after transplant in these patients is equal to that of patients without HIV.
In a randomized phase III study of the drug inotuzumab ozogamicin, a statistically significant percentage of patients with ALL whose disease had relapsed following standard therapies, qualified for stem cell transplants after treatment with the drug.
Lenalidomide maintenance after high-dose melphalan and autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) significantly prolonged overall survival in patients with multiple myeloma compared with no maintenance, a meta-analysis of 3 randomized controlled trials presented at the 2016 ASCO Annual Meeting has found.
Upfront autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) remains the preferred treatment for patients age 65 years or younger with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, according to phase 3 study results reported at the 2016 ASCO Annual Meeting.
Corticosteroid Prophylaxis Reduces Risk of Graft-versus-host Disease in Patients Undergoing Haploidentical TransplantationApril 25, 2016
Prophylactic low-dose corticosteroid was significantly associated with relatively low risk of GVHD grades II to IV and rapid platelet recovery in patients undergoing haploidentical transplantation.
Current presence of pain was associated with both greater depression and fatigue in survivors of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT).
Results for patients with acute leukemia that received the antibody showed lower incidence of chronic graft-versus-host disease post-transplant.
For patients with refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML), employment of allogeneic stem cell transplantation may be a valid treatment strategy.
For patients with chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CP-CML) and the T315I mutation, ponatinib treatment may offer longer overall survival.
Biologic Age Need Not be a Limiting Factor for Stem Cell Transplants in Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)November 25, 2015
More than 40% of older patients with AML can remain in long-term cancer remission through a modified, less aggressive approach to donor stem cell transplantation, according to the results of a phase 2 study.
A sleep deficit of just 4 hours affects the ability of blood and immune-system stem cells to migrate to the proper spots in the bone marrow of recipient mice and churn out the cell types necessary to reconstitute a damaged immune system by as much as 50%.

Patients with light-chain amyloidosis who are treated with high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation have the greatest success for long-term survival.
