The GvHD Hub is pleased to present a visual abstract summarizing key findings from a retrospective analysis comparing graft-versus-host disease cyclophosphamide-based prophylaxis posttransplant with sirolimus vs tacrolimus in adult patients undergoing haploidentical allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation.1 Most patients were diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and a higher proportion of patients in the sirolimus cohort were aged >60 years.

The retrospective study was recently published by Elmariah et al.1 in Transplantation and Cellular Therapy.
