Question About Peripheral Blood Stem Cells In A Clinical Trial?

Postby watts35 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 5:06 pm

Hello, if Peripheral blood stem cells are collected after induction chemotherapy, and there are different arms in the study, where one is more chemo, and the other is an autologous Peripheral blood stem cell transplant, but the patient is randomized to the arm where the transplant is not done, what do they do with those Peripheral blood stem cell? Do they just throw them away?

If it's randomized, a doctor can't choose to have that done for his/her patient correct?

That's not in the responsibility of the doctor, I think there should be at least some doctors or even a specialist together to get it straight. Never heard about just throwing away..
