Immunocompromised hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients frequently receive total parenteral nutrition (TPN), a dextrose-based solution that may exacerbate the infectious risks associated with hyperglycemia. This study assessed the incidence of hyperglycemia (glucose level>or=110 mg/dL) and its effect on clinical outcomes in TPN versus non-TPN recipients who received HSCTs. A retrospective cohort of 357 adults who were admitted for initial autologous or allogeneic transplantation… CONTINUE READING
