Most lymphomas are initially sensitive to chemotherapy and radiation. Unfortunately, many patients will relapse with their disease. Dose escalation of chemotherapy is often limited by hematopoetic toxicity. The realization that a significantly higher dose of chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy could be delivered to a patient by reconstituting their marrow with hematopoetic stem cells paved the way to autologous blood or marrow transplantation (ABMT) for patients with lymphoma. Initial studies… CONTINUE READING
