Abstract

Although children, adolescents, and young adults with newly diagnosed B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma enjoy excellent overall survival with current chemoimmunotherapy, those with relapsed and/or refractory disease have a dismal prognosis. Although most clinicians would agree that hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation after reinduction therapy is frontline therapy for these patients, there is no consensus as to what type of hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation promises the best event-free and overall survival. This review outlines the disparate types of stem cell therapy that have been used in this difficult-to-treat population as well as the role of maintenance and CAR T-cell therapy in conjunction with stem cell therapy.
