High-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation is the most effective treatment for certain cancers because it improves survival and cures more patients than other treatments. High-dose chemotherapy is currently being evaluated in controlled clinical trials for the treatment of several types of cancers. Published results best describe the role of stem cell transplantation in the treatment of the following cancers:
- Acute Myelogenous Leukemia
- Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
- Multiple Myeloma
- Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
- Breast Cancer
