New edition of a resource that takes into account the enormous amount of new scientific information that has been generated through research and clinical trials in the past five years. The original title, Bone Marrow Transplantation, was revised to reflect the fact that bone marrow is no longer the major source of allogeneic and autologous hematopoietic cells. The 104 articles discuss the scientific basis for hematopoietic cell transplantation, patient related issues, sources of cells for human transplantation, complications and their management, allogeneic and autologous transplantation for acquired and inherited diseases, and the future.
