An EBMT registry matched study of allogeneic stem cell transplants for lymphoma: allogeneic transplantation is associated with a lower relapse rate but a higher procedure-related mortality rate than autologous transplantation

Abstract

Summary:The role of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in lymphoma remains uncertain. We have analyzed 1185 allogeneic transplants for lymphoma reported to the EBMT registry between 1982 and 1998 and compared the results with those of 14 687 autologous procedures performed over the same period. Patients receiving allogeneic transplants were subdivided… (More)
