Thus, patients with common HLA alleles on conserved haplotypes are more likely to find matched unrelated donors than those with rare genotypes (12).
Importantly, EFS rates were similarly high for children who had received donations of matched sibling cells or fully matched unrelated umbilical cord blood (MSD or UCB, 81 percent), compared to EFS rates for patients transplanted with cells from matched unrelated donors (66 percent) or unmatched unrelated cord blood donors (68 percent).
