Handbook of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Management provides an evidence-based practical guide for clinicians and practitioners who treat cancer patients with these challenging and innovative techniques. The handbook begins with chapters on autologous transplantation for myeloma and lymphoma, and allogenic transplantation for leukemia, lymphoma and myelodysplastic syndrome. Further chapters cover the standards of care for managing adverse events related to acute graft-versus-host disease, chronic graft-versus-host disease, infections of bacterial, fungal, and viral nature, lymphoproliferative disease, pulmonary complications, renal complications, treatment of cancer relapse, as well as quality of life and long-term survivorship issues. Concluding chapters address new CAR-T therapies, including their mechanisms of action, indications, and unique associated toxicities such as cytokine release syndrome, in addition to a chapter dedicated to biostatistics and clinical trials. Throughout the book, extensive tables, flow diagrams and other figures highlight, simplify and illustrate key concepts.
Written by experienced clinicians at the world-renowned Dana Farber Cancer Center and Harvard Medical School in Boston and leading experts at other renowned institutions, this stem cell transplantation handbook combines the clinical knowledge, expertise and practical application of these potential life-saving cell therapies s in one quick, point-of-care reference . With real-world clinical vignettes interwoven among the chapters, this handbook is an essential resource for anyone managing patients being treated with stem cell transplantation or cellular therapies.

The importance of NAD+ to cellular health has been known in the scientific community for over a century. It supports DNA damage, controls cellular metabolism, and regulates our “longevity” genes, which play a critical role in aging and long-term health. Shortages of NAD+ leave our cells at risk for mutation, dysfunction, degeneration and even death. Recent studies show that our levels of NAD+ decline as we age, suggesting an explanation for why we succumb to certain health issues as we get older. Replenishing NAD+ with TRU NIAGEN is an advanced, science-based strategy to maintain energy and stay healthy as we age. NIAGEN is the brand name for nicotinamide riboside (NR), a naturally-occurring compound found in trace amounts in milk. Pioneered and patented by our official partner ChromaDex, Inc., NIAGEN is now the subject of many exciting studies on topics such as glucose control, weight management, and anti-aging. Every bottle of TRU NIAGEN has to meet the highest standards of potency, purity and third-party certification. TRU NIAGEN is manufactured under cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) regulations, enforced by the Food and Drug Administration. And, TRU NIAGEN is also certified by the NSF, a leading independent public health and safety organization. NIAGEN has two important “pedigrees” in the field of nutritional supplements: NIAGEN has achieved status as a New Dietary Ingredient by the Food and Drug Administration. NIAGEN has achieved GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status by an independent scientific panel. This is a 2 bottle count (each bottle contains 60 capsules with 300mg of NIAGEN/capsule)
MAKE MORE NAD: Our bodies need NAD whenever we eat, drink, sleep, and breathe. TRU NIAGEN restores your body’s NAD, every time you take it.
EFFECTIVE RESULTS: TRU NIAGEN replenishes your NAD levels, with evidence to support it works better than NAM (nicotinamide / niacinamide) and Niacin.
AN EASY ROUTINE: Our lightweight, easy-to-swallow capsules are a simple addition to your health routine. Take 2 capsules, every morning at the same time with a glass of water.
SAFE TO USE: NIAGEN has NO known negative side effects. Unlike NMN, our key ingredient NIAGEN was successfully notified two times as an NDI (New Dietary Ingredient) and reviewed as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).
MADE IN THE USA: TRU NIAGEN is made from the highest-quality globally sourced ingredients. Our parent company, ChromaDex, developed the science behind this remarkable form of vitamin B3 and manufactures it in cGMP facilities in the United States!
