Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hematopoietic cell transplantation is a well-established treatment approach for hematological malignancies and provides a significant curative approach. Graft versus host disease is a life-threatening complication that causes long-term morbidity and mortality following allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation. Recent advances in prophylaxis and active therapy have created significant impacts on the treatment of graft versus host disease. Still, several pieces are missing in the pathophysiology of graft versus host disease. The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight recent findings in the research area of graft versus host disease and graft versus host leukemia. We welcome the submission of original research articles and reviews of both basic and translational studies.

Dr. Senthilnathan Palaniyandi
