Bone marrow transplantation across major genetic barriers.

Ed. by Yair Reisner and Massimo F. Martelli.

World Scientific


479 pages




Reisner (immunology, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel) and Martelli (hematology and immunology, U. of Perugia, Italy) bring together 20 chapters of research on bone marrow transplantation in children and adults who do not have a matched sibling donor. Researchers working in immunology, microbiology, hematology, oncology, and transplantation in Europe, the US, Asia, and Israel discuss strategies to overcome graft vs. host (GvH) disease and graft rejection; cell therapy to prevent leukemia relapse; modalities to improve immune reconstitution after transplantation; clinical studies on boosting thymus output or using adoptive transfer of immunity against infectious agents or malignant cells; and new approaches to induce immune tolerance towards organ transplantation by hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
