Table 1 The characteristics of the myeloma patients included in the study

From: Circulating monocyte subsets in multiple myeloma patients receiving autologous stem cell transplantation – a study of the preconditioning status and the course until posttransplant reconstitution for a consecutive group of patients

  2. a) Patients undergoing their second auto-transplantation are indicated; the stem cell graft was the same as for the first transplantation for all these patients
  3. b) The peripheral blood concentration of CD34+ cells on the (first) day of harvesting is given; the level is expressed as × 103 cells/mL
  4. c) Neutropenia was defined as the time from the first day of neutrophil peripheral blood concentration ≤ 0.2 × 109/L until the first of three consecutive days with neutrophils exceeding 0.2 × 109/L or alternatively the first day with neutrophil counts > 10 × 109/L. The duration of thrombocytopenia was defined as the number of days from the first day of peripheral blood thrombocyte counts below 20 × 109/L until the first day with thrombocyte count above 20 × 109/L without thrombocyte transfusion
  5. d) The age of patients are grouped
