Five pretransplant risk factors, age of patient, disease stage, time interval from diagnosis to transplant, donor type, and donor-recipient sex combination, provide for a composite risk score for outcome after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in patients with hematological malignancies. The score forms a basis for decision making between transplant and nontransplant strategies.
