Myeloablative conditioning is well tolerated by older patients receiving T-cell-depleted grafts.
Older age has been linked to increased transplant-related mortality from graft-versus-host disease (GvHD). Depletion of T cells from stem cell grafts seems to protect from complications of GvHD particularly in older patients. After myeloablative conditioning, patients with haematological malignancies received allogeneic grafts from HLA identical siblings. For GvHD prophylaxis, PBPC grafts were treated ex vivo with anti-CD52, and therapeutic doses of cyclosporin until day +90. Survival of pati...Expand abstract
