For marrow harvests this number was (and is) on the order of 2x lOB/kg body weight of the recipient for autografts. An increase by a factor of 2-4 in cell number is usually deemed advisable for allografts. Any in vitro measure of progenitor numbers determined by colony formation requires about two weeks, and, thus, in allografting this indication of graft quality is typically obtained retrospectively, after the recipient has been infused. Since autografts are often stored frozen for at least two weeks before infusion, while the patient is being conditioned, there is time to obtain a prospective assessment of graft quality, and to take corrective measures if needed.

Depending on these discussions, consultation with a social worker or other professional should be considered. It is beyond the scope of this chapter to address the complicated area denoted "quality of life" after transplantation. Nonetheless, this is a vital issue.
