    The objective of this study was to describe the outcome of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (alloSCT) in a series of patients with B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL). Twenty-three B-CLL patients were transplanted between 1988 and 1997 using stem cells from a related (n = 20) or an...

    Ultraviolet-B (UVB) irradiation is known to inhibit lymphocyte activity and consequently to reduce the incidence of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in experimental models for allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). GVHD is frequently associated with morbidity and mortality, but also with...

    Relapse of peripheral non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in the central nervous system commonly has a poor prognosis. Graft-versus-leukemia effects (GvL) contribute substantially to eradication of hematological malignancies after allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Few data are available describing...
