Aim: To evaluate practice patterns of hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Materials & methods: We utilized the National Cancer Database to extract patient-level data of adults (aged 18–80 years) diagnosed with acute lymbhoblastic leukemia between 2003 and 2012. We performed multivariable logistic regression to determine variables associated with the use of HCT.
