Abstract

In addition to stem cells, T-cells, natural killer cells, dendritic cells, and monocytes are also collected and infused from the autograft in patients undergoing autologous peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Recent reports have shown that these autograft immune effector cells can affect the clinical outcome postautologous peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. In this article, I will review the clinical impact on the survival of these autograft immune effector cells conferring the concept of autologous graft versus tumor effect.
