Abstract

In the last four decades, allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) has progressed to become a curative modality for patients with hematological cancers with increasing number of geriatric patients now being considered as suitable candidates. This warrants for a better understanding of the overall health of geriatric cancer patients from a nutrition stand point. In this study, I have evaluated individual patient parameters to predict malnutrition among elderly stem cell transplant patients.^
