High incidence of chronic graft versus host disease after allogeneic peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation. The Spanish Group of Allo-PBPCT.Haematologica , 82 (6) 683-9.
The incidence of acute GVHD (aGVHD) in allogeneic peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation (allo-PBPCT) seems to be similar to that seen in allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (allo-BMT). In contrast, some preliminary results suggest that the incidence of chronic GVHD (cGVHD) might be higher. The aim of the present study was to analyze the actuarial probability of developing cGVHD in allo-PBPCT, its clinical manifestations and response to treatment.More information
