Real-World Economic Burden Associated with Transplantation-Related Complications

Hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) is a potentially curative treatment for patients with high-risk hematologic malignancies [1,2]. Common indications for HCT in adults include acute myelogenous leukemia, myeloproliferative neoplasms, myelodysplastic syndromes, chronic myelogenous leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and certain solid tumors [2].

Calorie restriction improves health and extends life in most species and lineages tested, while both Protein restriction and intermittent fasting can provide similar but usually lesser packages of benefits. Once delving into the details of the biochemistry involved, however, the picture becomes very complex, and is still quite uncertain. These strategies probably work through overlapping collections of mechanisms that in turn interact with one another. Intermittent fasting and protein restriction still provide some benefits even when calorie level is kept constant, for example, and assays of epigenetic changes look fairly ...
