Bush, N.; Donaldson, G.; Moinpour, C.; Haberman, M.; Milliken, D.; Markle, V.; Lauson, J. // Quality of Life Research;Feb2005, Vol. 14 Issue 1, p77
We believe that many adverse events following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), particularly relapse and chronic graft-versus-host disease (CGVHD), are preceded by a subclinical period of development that is accessible by frequent psychometric assessment. Documenting these...
