Are Autologous Stem Cell Transplants Curative for Mantle Cell Lymphoma?

Two recent studies of up-front autologous stem cell transplants for mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) raise the question of potential cure of this disease. Researchers affiliated with the Nordic Lymphoma Group have reported a 56% event-free survival at six years for a large group of patients with MCL. The details of this study appeared in an early online publication in Blood on July 14, 2008.1 In addition, Researchers from Emory University have reported a 73% five-year progression-free survival for a small group of patients receiving autologous stem cell transplants for MCL. This study appeared in an early online publication in Bone Marrow Transplantation on July 14, 2008.
