A steady stream of advances in allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation has not only improved the clinical outcome in a variety of malignant and nonmalignant diseases but also widened the indications for such transplants. One important advance is the use of sources of hematopoietic stem cells other than bone marrow from HLA-identical siblings, which is a resource available to only about 30 percent of potential recipients.
