Impact of the conditioning regimen dose intensity before autologous stem cell transplantation on the pulmonary function test abnormalities in patients with lymphoma and multiple myeloma. Single center experience

ConclusionsAutologous SCT impact on lung function depends on the disease and conditioning regimen. It leads to a drop in lung volumes but no obstruction or decrease in diffusion in lymphoma patients receiving BEAM. Autologous SCT did not affect lung functions in MM patients and these patients may not need screening PFTs.

Authors: Tamma R, Ruggieri S, Annese T, Ribatti D Abstract The traditional view of the vascular biology is changed by the discovery of vascular progenitor cells in bone marrow or peripheral blood Further complexity is due to the findings that the vessel walls harbor progenitor and stem cells, called vascular wall-resident vascular stem cells (VW-VSCs), able to differentiate to mature vascular wall cells. These immature stem/progenitor cell populations and multipotent mesenchymal lineage participate in postnatal neovascularization and vascular wall remodeling. Further studies are necessary to deepen the knowledge on...
