Also, double unrelated cord blood transplant tied to better outcomes in leukemia patients

Dec 8, 2010 - Individuals who donate peripheral blood stem cells or bone marrow do not appear to be at an overall increased risk of cancer, according to research being presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology, held from Dec. 4 to 7 in Orlando, Fla.

Other studies being presented address stem cell transplant procedures in treating various hematologic malignancies and highlight zoledronic acid's ability to improve survival in multiple myeloma patients.
