abstract
In this book, experts in the field express their well-reasoned opinions on a spectrum of important and complex issues in the area of cord blood transplantation. The aim is to provide practicing hematologists, including hematopoietic transplant physicians, with clinically relevant and immediately applicable information that will assist in the delivery of optimal care. The book opens by offering a historical perspective and examining current concepts and practices in cord blood banking. Sections are then devoted to strategies for cord blood graft selection and to areas of consensus and controversy in cord blood transplantation for neoplastic diseases - and nonmalignant - in children and adults. Attention is drawn to the implications of high-impact clinical trials whenever such trials are available. The readily intelligible text is complemented by numerous helpful tables, algorithms, and figures. This book will appeal to all residents, fellows, and faculty members responsible for the care of hematopoietic cell transplant patients and will offer a robust, engaging tool to aid vital activities in the daily work of every hematology and oncology trainee. .
