The EBMT Handbook: Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies

This Open Access  edition of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) handbook addresses the latest developments and innovations in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and cellular therapy. Consisting of 93 chapters, it has been written by 175 leading experts in the field.

Discussing all types of stem cell and bone marrow transplantation, including haplo-identical stem cell and cord blood transplantation, it also covers the indications for transplantation, the management of early and late complications as well as the new and rapidly evolving field of cellular therapies.

This book provides an unparalleled description of current practices to enhance readers’ knowledge and practice skills.

Immune Biology of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: Models in Discovery and Translation

Immune Biology of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: Models in Discovery and Translation, Second Edition once again provides clinical and scientific researchers with a deep understanding of the current research in this field and the implications for translational practice. By providing an overview of the immune biology of HSCT, an explanation of immune rejection, and detail on antigens and their role in HSCT success, this book embraces biologists and clinicians who need a broad view of the deeply complex processes involved. It then moves on to discuss the immunobiology mechanisms that influence graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), graft-versus-leukemia effect, and transplantation success. Using illustrative figures, highlighting key issues, describing recent successes, and discussing unanswered questions, this book sums up the current state of HSCT to enhance the prospects for the future. The second edition is fully revised and includes new chapters on microbiome, metabolism, kinase targets, micro-RNA and mRNA regulatory mechanisms, signaling pathways in GVHD, innate lymphoid system development, recovery and function in GVHD, genetically engineered T-cell therapies, immune system engagers for GVHD and graft-versus-tumor, and hematopoietic cell transplant for tolerance induction in solid organ grafts.

  • Brings together perspectives from leading laboratories and clinical research groups to highlight advances from bench to the bedside
  • Guides readers through the caveats that must be considered when drawing conclusions from studies with animal models before correlating to clinical allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) scenarios
  • Categorizes the published advances in various aspects of immune biology of allogeneic HSCT to illustrate opportunities for clinical applications

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: A Handbook for Clinicians, 2nd edition

This second edition of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: A Handbook for Clinicians (HSCT) offers comprehensive and practical information for healthcare providers working in the HSCT field. It provides relevant information on all areas of HSCT, including indications for transplantation; donor and patient evaluation; conditioning regimens; collection, processing, and characterization of stem cell products; management of immunosuppressive therapy; evaluation and management of the most common complications during HSCT; supportive care management; common procedures; and aspects of follow-up care. The emphasis of the Handbook is placed on providing up-to-date information in a clinically meaningful way.
This edition s content has been reorganized to facilitate finding topics of interest more easily and the authors emphasized an educational bent in presenting their material. Each of the topics in the first edition has been revised to ensure the content is up to date. New chapters covering nonmalignant diseases, haploidentical transplants, photopheresis, financial considerations, and iron overload have been added.

Topics include:
General Principles
Pretransplant Concerns
Donor Selection
Graft Preparation
Infusion and Support
