Objective: To evaluate the feasibility and safety of a 4-6 weeks exercise - psycho-educational intervention in patients undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-HCST). The intervention included structured and supervised exercise, relaxation and psycho-educational components. It was hypothesized that the intervention would minimize loss of physical capacity during hospitalization.
