Factors affecting collection efficiency of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) include patient's age, diagnosis, preceding chemoradiotherapy, disease invasion of the bone marrow and mobilizing chemotherapy in PBSC collection for autologous transplants. Mobilizing cytokines, timing for apheresis, machines and operating software would affect mobilization and collection of PBSCs both for autologous and allogeneic transplantation. Also donor's age and gender would affect PBSC yield for allogeneic… CONTINUE READING
