The article analyses the effect of the order of total body irradiation (TBI) and cyclophosphamide administration on the outcome of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Topics discussed include retrospective study to analyse the transplant outcomes of patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), analysing five-year relapse rates among standard-risk patients with the help of multivariate analysis, and irradiation method.

    I.v. BU is frequently used in the conditioning regimen prior to allogeneic hematopoietic SCT (allo-HSCT); however, overall outcomes, incidence of hepatic sinusoidal obstructive syndrome (SOS) and its risk factors are not well known. With this aim, we performed a study on 257 AML adult...

    Although reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) and non-myeloablative (NMA)-conditioning regimens have been used for over a decade, their relative efficacy vs myeloablative (MA) approaches to allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation in patients with AML and myelodysplasia (MDS) is unknown. We...
