Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is being used increasingly in an attempt to cure many hematological disorders, solid tumors and autoimmune diseases. One of the major challenges in the post-transplant period is nutrition. The purpose of this investigation was to assess changes in the biochemical indices of nutritional status during HSCT and compare them with acute-phase protein levels to find the best parameters for nutritional support qualification. Nutritional status was… CONTINUE READING
