Sergio Giralt, MD, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, comments on the potential uses for CD34+ cells collected for double hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in patients with multiple myeloma. Whilst modern apheresis techniques enable the collection of enough cells for double transplants, full usage of these cells rarely occurs. Additional uses for the apheresis products include salvage transplantation, especially in patients with long-term thrombocytopenia. This interview took place at the 7th Congress on Controversies in Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies (COSTEM) in Berlin, Germany.
