Physical evaluation may improve patient selection for bone marrow transplant

from Healio

Endurance limitations appeared significantly associated with greater length of inpatient admission and death during admission for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, according to study results presented at the BMT Tandem Meetings.

Measures of risk assessment commonly used to predict HSCT outcomes include the validated HSCT-comorbidity index (HSCT-CI) and Karnofsky performance score. more
