Platelet regeneration represents an important and separate element in the engraftment process for allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Fully automated flow cytometry using blood cell counters now allows reliable quantification of reticulated platelets, expressed as the immature platelet fraction (IPF). We studied the kinetics of IPF in six patients grafted with allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT), 12 patients with bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and seven patients… CONTINUE READING
