Introduction Development of chronic graft vs host disease (cGvHD) and maintained complete remission at day 100 post-transplant (CR day 100) are associated with improved survival post-allogeneic transplant in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients. However, earlier prognostic markers could be beneficial in guiding clinical management post-transplantation. As survival is associated with successful engraftment and B cells play a positive role in cGvHD, we investigated serum free light chain (FLC… CONTINUE READING
