Abstract

When allogeneic transplant is indicated and a MSD is not available, most centers first seek an unrelated donor. However, one must avoid undue delays when a donor is not available and family members should be typed to identify the preferred donor amongst the family. Since a family donor can provide access to transplant for almost every patient, a greater effort should be encouraged to improve and expand haploidentical transplantation. The advantages, outlined in Table 1, suggest compelling reason to perfect the use of haploidentical related donors.
