Abstract

The haematopoietic cell transplantation comorbidity index (HCTCI) predicts nonrelapse mortality and overall survival (OS) post-stem cell transplantation. HCTCI scores were assessed in 177 patients over 60 years of age receiving acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) induction therapy. HCTCI score was 0 in 22% of patients, 1-2 in 30%, and ≥3 in 48%. In patients with scores of 0, 1-2, or ≥3, early death rates were 3%, 11% and 29% (P < 0.001) respectively; median OS was 45, 31 and 19 weeks (P = 0.04) respectively. The HCTCI score is predictive of early death rates and OS in older patients receiving AML induction therapy.
