Answer

Two patients died of transplantation-related causes, and eight died from progressive disease. In 10 patients (53%), metastatic disease regressed; three patients had a complete response, and seven had a partial response. [71] The durations of these responses continue to be assessed. Further trials are needed to confirm these findings and to evaluate long-term benefits.
