Recent Advances and Future Directions in Bone Marrow Transplantation

This volume demonstrates the great progress made since the first successful allogeneic marrow transplants were performed in man over twenty years ago and also confronts today’s unresolved significant problems. These include acute and chronic graft-versus-host disease, infection after bone marrow transplantation, and leukemic relapses. Discussion of experimental bone marrow transplantation focuses on such topics as the following: failure of self/nonself discrimination, prevention of transfusion-induced sensitization in marrow transplant recipients, bone marrow purging with chemical and photodynamic agents, autologous and allogeneic marrow transplants in leukemia and lymphoma, allogeneic and syngeneic marrow transplantation for aplastic anemia, marrow transplantation in patients with thalassemia and lysosomal storage diseases, and medical management of Chernobyl-type nuclear accidents.
