About this Book

This outstanding reference source on bone marrow transplantation has become recognised as the bible in the field. This fourth edition has been fully revised to reflect latest developments, and now features over 500 illustrations, including a colour plate section. The need for this new edition cannot be overstated - more than 13,000 new cases per year of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation have been reported to the International Bone Marrow Transplant Registry

The original editor, Donnall Thomas, was a pioneer in stem cell research and won the 1990 Nobel Prize for his discoveries concerning organ and cell transplantation in the treatment of human diseases.

The book also now includes a fully searchable CD with PDFs of the entire content.
