their sexual health might not rebound as much or as quickly. Data have been limited to this point, prompting us to take a closer look at this issue in a larger, more diverse group of autologous and allogeneic transplant survivors over an extended period."

To further investigate long-term effects of SCT on the sexual health of survivors, a team of researchers led by senior author Smita Bhatia, MD, MPH, surveyed 277 adult patients (152 men and 125 women; median age 48) who underwent SCT at City of Hope for blood cancer between February 2001 and January 2005 about their sexual activity.

A third questionnaire assessed overall health-related quality of life.

Investigators' analysis of questionnaire results (led by Dr. Wong) confirmed previous studies in demonstrating a definitive impact of SCT on survivors' post-transplant sexual activity. During the three-year post-transplant analysis period, the percentage of men who self-reported being "sexually active" (defined as having sex with a partner at least once in the preceding month) declined 7 percentage points, with 61 percent of men reporting sexual activity pre-transplant and 54 percent reporting activity post-transplant. The opposite a 15 percentage point increase in sexually active individuals was observed in women, with 37 percent reporting sexual activity pre-transplant and 52 percent reporting activity post-transplant.
