Increasing use is being made of mobilized peripheral blood as a source of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells for transplantation. Initially, these efforts were focused on autologous applications. However, many centers are now using cells derived from normal donors mobilized with recombinant hematopoietic growth factors for allogeneic transplantation. This article reviews the key issues associated with the use of these cells for hematologic reconstitution and summarizes important recent… CONTINUE READING
