What kinds of responses are seen/expected in adults with relapsed follicular lymphoma who receive a BMT?

Lauren Spiceland replied:

Autologous stem cell transplants can produce long term remissions in follicular lymphoma, better if done earlier in the course of their disease. This type of transplant is not curative for most patients. Allogeneic stem cell transplants can be curative for some patients but are more risky and in general are recommended for younger patients.

Hi @amywilcox, here is a response from our physicians: Infusing more of your daughter's cells would be done through donor lymphocyte infusion, or DLI, which is performed if there is concern for graft rejection or early relapse. Without knowing the exact details of your son's case it is difficult to say, but if he has donor cells DLI could be considered.

I know this discussion was pediatric related, but regarding AML and stem cell transplant in older adults, is this not still the "standard of care" and if so, how does one approach denial by the insurance company for this treatment?

Hello, here is a response from our physicians: We are still learning about telomeres. They are important in cancer, aging, response to drugs, etc. Shortened telomeres are on the chromosomes, so they are technically in the whole body. Patients with aplastic anemia don’t respond well to immunosuppression and are more sensitive to transplant conditioning, but do fine with reduced-intensity conditioning.
