The role of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) on relapse-free survival (RFS) is being increasingly recognised in clinical studies. In the study reported by Lee and colleagues Kaplan-Meier (KM) RFS estimates of patients stratified according to the occurrence of acute GVHD (aGVHD) have been plotted. A stratification on a variable unknown at baseline is… CONTINUE READING
