Abstract

Antimicrobial prophylaxis is recommended for all patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Evidence-based guidelines recently have been updated to incorporate the results from recent clinical studies. Methods: An antimicrobial prophylaxis survey was conducted during the 2013 ASBMT Tandem Meetings to discern the degree of concordance between transplant centers and society guidelines. Results: The results show significant differences in prescribing practices among transplant institutions and variance with evidence-based guidelines. Conclusion: The clinical significance of this discordance is unknown.
