The first part of the book focuses on indications and results of transplantation for acute leukemias, chronic myelogenous leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and breast cancer, providing insight into the relative merits of transplant and nontransplant approaches to these disorders. Part II examines transplant-related complications including the pathophysiology and clinical consequences of acute and chronic GVHD, delayed immune reconstitution leading to infectious complications, and organ damage to the lung and liver.
