Liberio N, et al. – The CIBMTR conducted a study to address the lack of data guiding haploidentical (haplo) donor selection for pediatric HCT. Research presented at the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) Annual Meeting showed that sibling donors had a lower risk of acute and chronic graft-versus-host disease and graft failure when compared to parental donors. The study suggests sibling donors may be the optimal haplo donor choice for pediatric HCT to minimize risks and improve outcomes.

Bolaños-Meade J, et al., The Lancet Haematology – In a prospective, phase II trial, researchers found that tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, with post-hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) cyclophosphamide (TMMCy) produced the best GVHD-free, relapse-free survival (GRFS) for patients who received an allogeneic HCT when compared to the current standard of care.
