Cord blood transplantation (CB-T) is increasingly used as a treatment alternative for hematologic malignancies. However, how CB-T compares to related (RD-T) and unrelated donor transplantation (URD-T) is not established. We compared survival of 75 double-unit CB-T, 108 RD-T, and 184 URD-T recipients who received transplants over the same period for the treatment of hematologic malignancies. Patients had similar ages and disease risk, and a similar percentage had acute leukemia. The incidence of… CONTINUE READING
