Myeloablative allogeneic transplantation in follicular lymphoma has been found to be particularly effective in patients with relapsed disease and an inadequate bone marrow reserve or massive bone marrow involvement. Allogeneic transplantation carries the promise of long-term disease control by graft-versus-lymphoma immunity but is associated with a 30%-40% risk of transplant-related mortality. Nonmyeloablative stem cell transplantation exploits the graft-versus-lymphoma effect without the… CONTINUE READING
