1.  Non-Myeloablative Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation 
Seminars in oncology nursing  2009;25(2):120-128.
Objective
To review the literature related to nonmyeloablative stem cell transplantation, and the unique characteristics and patient population to which it applies.
Data Sources
Research studies, research and clinical reviews, clinical experience
Conclusion
Nonmyeloablative stem cell transplantation has demonstrated effective and safe application in a heterogeneous population not otherwise eligible for an allogeneic transplantation. Although many principles are based on those of conventional myeloablative transplantation, the engraftment kinetics, patient selection and regimen related complications are distinct.
Implications for Nursing Practice
Nurses must be knowledgeable about nonmyeloablative stem cell transplantation including the provision of individualized care for a heterogeneous population. This can include non-traditional transplant indications, elderly cancer patients and those with comorbidities.
