Description

Fully revised throughout, the second edition of Manual of Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Transplantation is based on the in-house handbook used at the world-renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. It is a practical pocket manual for all members of the stem cell and bone marrow transplant team. Written by experts at Dana-Farber, the contents are handily arranged in outline format for maximum usefulness and convenience. This essential and user-friendly manual covers all aspects of the transplantation process, from stem cell processing through management of transplant-related complications. Topics discussed thoroughly include evaluation and counselling of patients and donors, preventative care, graft-versus-host disease and conditioning regimens. A new extensive chapter on oral health in stem cell transplantation has been added. These features make the Manual of Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Transplantation an ideal resource for the entire transplant team.
