Autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation in Hodgkin's disease

The use of HDT and AHCT in Hodgkin's disease patients with early relapsed and refractory disease is supported by historical comparisons. In regard to the late relapsed patient or the newly diagnosed high-risk patient, the role AHCT plays would ideally be answered by well-controlled phase 3 trials. A surrogate approach would be the comparison of AHCT data with well-matched historical controls. It is important, however, to be mindful of the changes that have occur red in the therapy of the newly diagnosed and relapsed HD patient (ABVD replacing MOPP regimens) and the impact these changes may or may not have on nonrelapse mortality in the autografted and nonautografted setting. In addition, the incorporation of consistent prognostic factors in any trial design may identify groups of relapsed or refractory and high-risk HD patients who may or may not gain benefit from HDT. The most effective and efficient route to answering these treatment questions is enrollment of patients in well-controlled and well-designed clinical trials.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
