ABSTRACT
The article provides information on a study conducted by the Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network, a research collaboration of various institutes, according to which patients who receive bone marrow and blood stem cell transplant from a an unrelated donor are more likely to have graft failures but less likely to experience graft-versus-host disease. This happens only if the transplanted blood cells come directly from the donor's bone marrow and not from the bloodstream.
