ESH-EBMT Handbook on HSCT 6th Edition

March 20, 2012

The new fully revised 6th edition of the ESH-EBMT Handbook will be available for the first time on-site at the ESH Booth (Number 417) at the upcoming EBMT Annual Meeting in Geneva, Switzerland April 1-4, 2012.

The editors, Jane Apperley, Enric Carreras, Eliane Gluckman, Tamas Masszi and over thirty-five international contributors have completely rewritten all the chapters and updated the list of references to reflect changes in practice. Comments and suggestions from readers of the 5th edition were taken into consideration by the authors and new sections have been added. These include a chapter on JACIE and one on indications for transplant and post-transplant immunotherapy.

The remaining chapters cover topics related to haematopoietic stem cell transplantation from the history of HSCTs, their biological properties to their clinical applications in malignant and non-malignant disease. Readers will also find chapters on statistics and methodology for conducting clinical trials in Europe.

As with the 5th Edition, multiple-choice questions (MCQs) are included at the end of each chapter to allow the reader to test their knowledge. The responses to the MCQs will be available online via the ESH website.

It is the sincere hope of all contributors that readers will find this edition even more useful and relevant than the previous one and that it will contribute to a better understanding of HSCTs and their use in treatment of patients.
