BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine whether body mass index (BMI, kg body weight/height (in m2) is related to survival in recipients of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (ASCT). DESIGN AND METHODS Since 1977, 544 adult patients (age ranging from 18 to 64 years) diagnosed with hematologic malignancies; 172 acute myeloid leukemia, 83 acute lymphocytic leukemia, 190 chronic myeloid leukemia and 99 others, underwent myeloablative conditioning and ASCT.
