Abstract

The 2007 report describes the current status of HSCT activity in Europe, highlights the increasing role of allogeneic HSCT in treatment of AML and gives the first quantitative information on novel cellular therapies. In 2007, there were 25 563 first HSCTs, 10 072 allogeneic (39%), 15 491 autologous (61%) and 3606 additional transplants reported from 613 centers in 42 countries. The main indications were leukemias (8061 (32%; 89% allogeneic)); lymphomas (14 627 (57%; 89% autologous)), solid tumors (1488 (6%; 96% autologous)) and nonmalignant disorders (1302 (5%; 91% allogeneic)). Peripheral blood was the main source of stem cells for autologous HSCT (98%) and the predominant source for allogeneic HSCT (71%). Among allogeneic HSCTs, the number of unrelated donor grafts equaled the number of HLA-identical sibling donor grafts for the first time (47% each). AML was the most frequent indication for allogeneic HSCT (32% of all allogeneic HSCTs), with an increase of 247 (8%). Information on novel cellular therapies was collected for the first time; there were 212 mesenchymal SCTs and 212 HSCTs for nonhematopoietic use. The indications for the latter were cardiovascular disorders (97; 46%), neurological disorders (94; 44%) and tissue repair (21; 10%). These data illustrate the expanding role of cellular therapies.
