Although blood stem cells have been widely used to support high-dose therapy in the autologous setting, limited data are available on the effects of graft characteristics in patient outcomes other than haematopoietic engraftment. Retrospective studies suggest that patients who mobilize more CD34+ cells have better outcomes than do patients who mobilize less well. Furthermore, immunological reconstitution may be important in terms of post-transplant outcome and is apparently affected by graft… CONTINUE READING
