Core Tip

Core tip: This case report illustrated the possibility of an autograft vs tumor effect by infusion autologous lymphocytes collected during stem cell collection without the side effect graft vs host disease. The infusion of autologous lymphocytes produced tumor regression in our case, suggesting that this treatment modality might benefit lymphoma patients.
