Six of sixteen recipients of syngeneic marrow and thirteen of a hundred recipients of allogeneic marrow are nonetheless in remission after five. 5-10 years [3, 7]. An actuarial survival curve of the 1st a hundred sufferers grafted in Seattle after conditioning with cyclophos­ phamide (60 mg/kg on every one of two successive days) and overall physique irradiation (1,000 rad) confirmed 3 classes of curiosity: (1) the 1st four months confirmed a speedy lack of sufferers linked to complicated disorder, graft-versus-host ailment, infections (in specific interstitial pneumonias), and recurrent leukemia; (2) from four months to two years, the curve confirmed a far slower cost of decline attributable basically to recurrent leukemia; and (3) from 2-10 years, the curve was once virtually flat with a negligible lack of sufferers and no recurrent leukemia.
