Editorial. Discusses the appropriateness and timing of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) that may aid the clinician actively involved in the care of patients with chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPD) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). CMPD and the three clinicopathologic entities that are classified as such; Experience of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center with AHSCT for myeloid metaplasia.

    In the myeloablative transplant setting, the early use of fluconazole prophylaxis provides a benefit in overall survival. Recent changes in transplantation practices, including the use of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) and/or reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) regimen may have favorably...

    Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of myeloid malignancies with variability in clinical presentation, disease trajectory, treatment goals, and expected outcomes. The treatment of patients with MDS, therefore, often differs from patient to patient. Tools are needed to aid...

    Relapse remains a leading cause for treatment failure after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) in patients with intermediate- or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). To discern the impact of 5-azacitine treatment pretransplant on the risk for relapse after HCT, we analyzed the post...
