I am pleased to present the 5th edicición the "Manual Hematopoietic Transplantation" made with the help of exceptional co-editors of this issue and our sponsors.
This edition, besides its usual paper version is available in app format for major mobile platforms. The app offers very interesting possibilities as: going periodically introducing notable developments without waiting for a new edition; consultation agility, thanks to hyperlinks between chapters; the ability to download the literature referenced free access, and access to web pages with useful material, such as online calculators indexes.
The Manual is divided into sections, each with a list of chapters from which you can directly open the topic to consult. The app also has a search engine keyword that links to the relevant chapter, the possibility of taking notes, consultation of abbreviations, the download for printing in PDF format, or the option to select the favorite chapters for a more flexible query .
