Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The role of Total Body Irradiation (TBI) is well defined in the conditioning regimen for-BMT, but in pediatric malignancies there are some particular points of discussion, due to the side effects of irradiation. As alternative methods have been described, as Busulfan based regimens, a critical balance between efficacy and toxicities has to be considered in this subset of patients.
