  • Elevated plasma fibrinogen is associated with tumor progression and poor outcomes in several cancers. However, no studies have demonstrated the prognostic value of hyperfibrinogenemia in the setting of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (ASCT). We retrospectively reviewed 104 patients who were diagnosed with malignant lymphoma (ML) or multiple myeloma (MM) and underwent ASCT in our institution between 2007 and 2018. The patients included 63 men and 41 women with a median age of… CONTINUE READING
