Guidelines of the Belgian Hematology Society on the use of stem cell transplantation in lymphoproliferative diseases

BJH - volume 10, issue 2, march 2019

High-dose chemotherapy and autologous or allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation are widely used in the treatment of lymphoproliferative diseases. For chemo-sensitive relapsed lymphoma (Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma) high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation are generally accepted as a standard treatment. Emerging data exist for the use of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in other disease stages for mantle cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma and some T-cell lymphomas. The use of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in other conditions is more controversial and remains a clinical option for selected patients or experimental within the framework of a clinical trial.
