Dengel and associates publish in Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation

Dr. Donald Dengel

Donald R. Dengel, Ph.D., professor in the School of Kinesiology and director of the Laboratory of Integrative Human Physiology, is lead author of an article published in the journal Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation. The article, “Vascular Structure and Function in Cancer Survivors After Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation,” examines the effects of hematopoietic cell transplantation and associated preparative regimens on vascular structure and function. The authors reported that hematopoietic cell transplantation preparative regimens containing total body radiation plus high-dose cranial radiation resulted in greater vascular dysfunction than those preparative regimens that consisted of only total body radiation or low-dose cranial radiation alone or combined.
