Episode 206: Graft-Versus-Host Disease: Biomarkers and Beyond

“Biomarkers give us information not only to diagnose a patient, but also to see whether a patient is going to have GVHD in the near future, whether a patient is going to respond to the treatment we’ll give, and what would be the overall outcome and survival.” ONS member Nilesh Kalariya, PhD, AGPCNP-BC, AOCNP®, research nurse practitioner at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX, talks with Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS, about managing acute and chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and biomarkers for the condition.
