Technical and Biological Components of Marrow Transplantation presents up to date information on the scientific and technological advances that will extend and improve the clinical application of bone marrow transplantation. The book includes the latest information on chronic myeloid leukemia and thalassemia; advances in supportive care: cytokines and progenitor expansion; and cord stem cell technology. Soon more of patients will receive marrow transplants as part of the therapy for solid tumors and metabolic disease than for the treatment of hematologic disease. The contributors to this volume describe some of these applications, hinting at yet further, exciting possibilities.
` ... exceptionally well edited, written in clear, precise prose which can be easily read over a weekend and contains sixteen chapters in all, with index. ... can be thoroughly recommended to a wide audience, from the student novice through to the veteran transplant physician, and well be a valuable acquisition to any `bone marrow' transplant teaching library.'
