BACKGROUND Few studies have been performed to identify factors that are associated with an increased risk of infections during the neutropenic period in patients undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT). The aim of this study was to identify the host immune cells responsible for infections before engraftment. METHODS A total of 282 patients who underwent allo-SCT were enrolled. Peripheral blood samples were collected before conditioning therapy. Expression of CD161… CONTINUE READING
