Summary:Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is a common indication for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in children. Use of unrelated cord blood (UCB) has become increasingly popular as a stem cell source, given the rapid availability and decreased GVHD potential. Publications describing outcomes of children with leukemia who underwent UCB transplants have compared them to those having received unrelated donor marrow transplants. Results are similar. We compared our outcomes using… CONTINUE READING
