What is the Role of T-Cell Depletion Strategies in Myeloablative Allografts There is no consensus over the role of T-cell depletion in the design of myeloablative preparative regimens in AML. Enthusiasts of T-replete allografts cite the potency of the GVL effect in AML and the limited salvage options in patients who relapse post-transplant as justification for the use of unmanipulated stem cells. These arguments are countered by a school of thought which Chapter 2 Full Intensity and Reduced Intensity Allogeneic Transplantation in AML highlights acute and chronic GVHD as the major causes of transplant toxicity and argues that the low rate of acute GVHD in T-depleted allografts permits intensification of the preparative regimen [63].

Emergence of Immunotherapeutic Strategies as an Important form of Targeted Therapy The challenges associated with the development of new drug therapies in AML provides a compelling case for the extension of immunotherapeutic approaches which target dysregulated cell surface antigens expressed on the surface of LSC rather than abnormalities in intracellular signaling pathways. The GVL effect in which the donor immune system targets “foreign” antigens expressed on the leukemic blast is the most widely exploited form of immunotherapy in clinical practice, but there is growing interest in the clinical benefit of strategies by which the patient’s own immune system can be manipulated to exert an anti-leukemic effect.
