What role is there for allogeneic SCT in the treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma?

Sureda begins by outlining some important considerations for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant such as the use of haploidentical donors. She highlights that the introduction of new drugs like brentuximab have had an impact on reducing the number of allogenic transplants occurring. Finally, she discusses how a better knowledge of how to combine checkpoint inhibitors with allogenic stem cell transplants has led to improvements in the long term outcome of patients.
