Abstract Allogeneic stem cell transplantation (alloSCT) can overcome the adverse prognosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia with 17p deletion (17p- CLL). However, its applicability remains unclear. Since 2007, our leukemia service has referred 17p- CLL patients for alloSCT at presentation. In this study, the outcomes of these patients were reviewed retrospectively to determine whether they underwent alloSCT and why patients did not undergo alloSCT. Fifty-two patients with 17p- CLL, who were referred to the transplant service from 2007 to 2010, were identified. Of these patients, 32 (62%) patients did not undergo alloSCT, mainly because of treatment- or disease-related complications (n=15). The 2-year post-referral overall survival rates of the alloSCT and non-SCT groups were 64% and 25%, respectively (p = 0.001). These findings suggest that while alloSCT is an effective therapy in 17p- CLL patients, pre-SCT complications may preclude a significant proportion of patients from undergoing the procedure.
