About this book

Introduction

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation reviews pertinent aspects of both autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation and our current understanding of transplantation biology including T cell and natural killer cell biology, HLA expression, and post-transplant immune reconstitution. The unique aspect to this volume is that each chapter is co-authored by experts in their respective fields from different institutions to provide potentially different perspectives on each topic. This book provides a very current and succinct overview of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation that is complimentary to the larger texts on the field. 

"There have been dramatic advances in the application of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for the treatment of malignant disease. This text provides a comprehensive update of the progress in the field. Technical and therapeutic innovations are reviewed by a distinguished assemblage of talented investigators." Steven T. Rosen, M.D., Series Editor
