Reduced-intensity or myeloablative allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation for mantle cell lymphoma: a systematic review


Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) is the only known treatment that can offer a cure in mantle cell lymphoma, but it is unclear if regimen dose-intensity offers any advantage. We performed a systematic review/meta-analysis to assess efficacy of allo-HCT using myeloablative or reduced-intensity conditioning. We report results according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses guidelines. On the basis of a relatively lower nonrelapse mortality and a slightly better progression-free survival/event-free survival and overall survival rates, reduced-intensity allo-HCT regimens appear to be the preferred choice when an allo-HCT is being considered for mantle cell lymphoma.
