ASH 2022 | Younger matched unrelated donor vs. older matched sibling donor for alloSCT in patients with B-ALL

Muhammad Bilal Abid, MD, MRCP, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, discusses the results of an analysis which compared younger matched unrelated donors (MUDs) versus older matched sibling donors (MSDs) for patients with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation (alloSCT). Results demonstrated that there was a significant reduction in relapse in patients who underwent transplantation using a younger MUD. Therefore, when both donor types are available, Dr Bilal Abid explains that younger MUDs should be the preferred option. This interview took place at the 64th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition congress in New Orleans, LA.
