Abstract

Autologous bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell transplants permit the use of higher doses of chemoradiotherapy than would have been possible without 'rescuing' bone marrow function. This may well allow cure of malignant disorders in cases where this was previously not feasible. This short review attempts to summarize the current status of such a treatment approach for the various haematological malignancies.
