Fully revised for the fifth edition, this outstanding reference on bone marrow transplantation is an essential, field-leading resource.
Extensive coverage of the field, from the scientific basis for stem-cell transplantation to the future direction of research
Combines the knowledge and expertise of over 170 international specialists across 106 chapters
Includes new chapters addressing basic science experiments in stem-cell biology, immunology, and tolerance
Contains expanded content on the benefits and challenges of transplantation, and analysis of the impact of new therapies to help clinical decision-making


Twenty‐one years ago after the first edition and six years following
the fourth edition of this textbook, the editors and publisher,
Wiley‐Blackwell, are proud to present the fifth edition of Thomas’
Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation. The inspiration for the development
of this fifth edition came from the rapid expansion of
knowledge underlying transplantation biology, increased understanding
of the complications of treatment, and new information
related to the pathogenesis and treatment of diseases for which
transplantation is utilized. The book also covers the expansion of
stem‐cell donor options and the genetic manipulation of cells of the
hematopoietic and immune system.
In comparing this edition with the previous one, readers will find
that there are new chapters focused on contributions to the field
provided from basic science experiments in stem‐cell biology,
immunology, and tolerance. Along with these new chapters, previous
contributions have been revised to reflect the deepening of our
understanding of the benefits and challenges of transplantation and
the impact of new therapies in the treatment of diseases for which
transplant is a potentially curative therapy. In order to expand the
information in each chapter, we have limited references to include
only those that are most relevant.
New to the fifth edition is a companion digital edition replacing
the CD ROM. The digital edition contains the entire text of the
book in a searchable form and includes all the figures in a convenient
downloadable format. The availability of the digital edition
reflects changes in the way readers, including basic science and
clinical investigators, clinicians, and nurses, access new information
for both their research work and clinical care of patients.
We, the editors, also greatly appreciate the assistance of the staff
at Wiley‐Blackwell, who have been extremely helpful in the process
of creating this new edition, now in two volumes, with a very different
and modern cover presentation. The editors feel very proud to
have assembled such a talented group of authors representing our
colleagues who are experts in the clinical and basic science of transplantation.
In addition, this edition would not have been possible
without the dedicated work of our assistants, Sara E. Clark‐Fuentes,
Tanya Chiatovich, and, most importantly, Kimberlie Laramie.
Finally, this edition honors the memory of Dr. Karl G. Blume and
Dr. E. Donnall Thomas, who passed away in 2012. Their laboratory
and clinical contributions helped begin and expand the field of
transplantation as a curative therapy for patients suffering from leukemia
and, over time, many other disorders. Both Dr. Thomas and
Dr. Blume were the first two editors of the book and this edition is
dedicated to them, and also to our patients and their families whose
trusting partnership makes it possible to make progress and extend
hope. We also honor the memory of Dr. Thomas’ wife, Dottie, who
we warmly consider to be the “mother” of hematopoietic cell transplantation,
for her own contributions in helping Dr. Thomas and
the field and for her support and editing of the first four editions of
the book. They were our colleagues, mentors, and friends, and their
impact will be felt in the field for many years to come.
