No votes yet
The science of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has changed significantly since its development in the 1950s. The number of transplantations performed to treat hematologic cancers has steadily increased over the decades. Stem cell transplantation remains a complex process involving numerous decisions and possible outcomes.
The third edition of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: A Manual for Nursing Practice serves as a powerful resource for medical professionals caring for transplant recipients, as well as for donors and families. This new edition includes overviews of the biology of stem cells, the stem cell collection and transplantation process, organ-specific side effects, and the long-term care of recipients. You'll also find discussions of newly-approved chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapies and implications for practice, as well as topics related to the ethics of stem cell transplantation and professional practice.
