Reduced-intensity conditioning reduces the risk of severe infections after allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation

Abstract

We compared the occurrence of severe infections following 71 reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplants (PBSCT) and 123 standard myeloablative PBSCT (MINI and STAND groups, respectively) from HLA-identical siblings. The probability of 1-year infection-related mortality (IRM) was 19% in the STAND group and 10% in… (More)
