Details and patient eligibility

About

Recent retrospective studies have suggested that iron overload is a clinically important problem in patients undergoing ablative stem cell transplantation. However, these studies relied on serum ferritin as a surrogate of iron overload, which limits the conclusions that can be drawn from such analyses. Therefore, the investigators are conducting a prospective study to more rigorously examine the prevalence, mechanisms, and consequences of iron overload in this patient population.

Inclusion criteria

Age ≥ 18 years. Histologically confirmed acute myeloid leukemia (AML), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) Planned allogeneic stem cell transplantation with myeloablative conditioning regimen (regardless of stem cell source or donor HLA match) Patients will be eligible even if they have had prior stem cell transplantation (autologous or allogeneic)

Exclusion criteria
