About the Authors
  • Over the past 35 years, stem cell and bone marrow transplantation have evolved from experimental therapies to well-established and widely used treatments for a variety of malignant and nonmalignant conditions. This is a practical pocket manual for all members of the stem cell and bone marrow transplant team, based on a popular in-house handbook used at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The manual covers all aspects of the transplantation process, from stem cell processing through management of transplant-related complications. Evaluation and counseling of patients and donors, preventative care, and conditioning regimens are also covered, making this an ideal resource for nurses as well. The text is handily arranged in outline format to maximize the usefulness and convenience of this resource.

    • Easily accessible outline of all aspects of transplantation care
    • Written for all members of the stem cell and bone marrow transplantation team, from specialists to nurses
    • Smaller format for quick reference, in bulleted outline
