Name: Cyclophosphamide-Busulfan as Conditioning Regimen before Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Type: Drug
Overall Status
The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis, that the order of application of Busulfan (BU) and Cyclophosphamide (CY) has an impact on toxicity after allogeneic Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and that CY-BU reduces liver toxicity compared to BU-CY.
