The EBMT Handbook has become the manual of choice for doctors and practitioners involved in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). As a result of the outstanding efforts of the Editorial Board and the contributors, this current Handbook is a complete update of all aspects of HSCT. Within its twenty-four chapters, there is a comprehensive review of the current state-of-the-art practices in this difficult and challenging field.
The 6th edition was successfully launched at the 2012 EBMT Annual Meeting in Geneva, Switzerland. For this revised edition, all chapters have been completely rewritten and references updated. Changes in practice are also reflected, including JACIE and indications for transplant and post-transplant immunotherapy.
The disease-specific chapters have also been expanded and included the regenerative disorders. In addition new chapters have been introduced on statistics, methodology of clinical trials and ethics. All chapters include multiple choice questionnaires to test the newly acquired knowledge.
The EBMT-ESH Handbook is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Chugai Sanofi-Aventis.
