Abstract

These data indicate increasing use of HCT for persons with blood and bone marrow disorders. Recent trends include increasing use of alternative donors including HLA-matched unrelated persons and of HLA-matched umbilical cord blood cells, increasing use of blood cell rather than bone marrow grafts and increasing use of reduced-intensity pretransplant conditioning regimens. Many of these shifts are driven by logistical considerations like the need for donors in persons without an HLA-identical sibling or expanding access to allotransplants to older patients. In other instances, like the shift from bone marrow to blood cell grafts or from conventional to reduced-intensity pretransplant conditioning regimens few randomized clinical trials have been reported to justify these shifts. More data are needed to critically-assess the impact of these changes.
