Peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPC) represent an ideal source of stem cells for autologous transplantation because of technical advantages and more favourable engraftment kinetics. The reconstituion of a functional immune system occurs earlier in patients transplanted with cytokine-mobilized autologous PBPC compared with bone marrow; because of the… CONTINUE READING
