Blood and Marrow Transplantation Reviews: Optimal Use of Stem Cell Mobilization in Patients with Multiple Myeloma and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a pathologically and clinically heterogeneous hematologic malignancy. In the United States, an estimated 185,000 people are currently living with this disease, and it accounted for more than 9,000 new cases of cancer in 2015. Chemotherapy and radiation provide long-term benefit to the majority of patients with HL; however, some patients will eventually relapse.

Insights Into Early Empiric or Prophylactic Antifungal Therapy in a Transplant Setting

Invasive fungal infections have become the chief infectious threat to allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) recipients. New drugs such as the echinocandins (caspofungin, micafungin, and anidulafungin) and the extended-spectrum azoles (itraconazole, voriconazole, and posaconazole) offer more effective and safer options today. Although these potent antifungal agents make treatment prospects better, there still is considerable risk for death from Candida, Aspergillus, and other mold infections.
