Study: T-cell count linked to blood cancer stem cell transplant outcomes

AABB SmartBrief | Jun 30, 2015

A study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology found that patients with hematologic malignancies who receive stem cells from younger, unrelated donors with high T-cell counts experience longer survival and lower risk of disease relapse, compared with those who were given stem cells with lower T-cell counts, even if donated by matched siblings. In the 200-patient study, four-year overall survival was 59% for cases involving younger, unrelated donors with high levels of CD8 cells, compared with 18% for cases involving younger, unrelated donors with low CD8 levels. Survival was 33% in cases involving older, human leukocyte antigen-matched donors. Oncology Nurse Advisor online (06/29)
