Marrow transplantation from a phenotypically identical unrelated donor has become a feasible and curative form of treatment for patients with several malignant and nonmalignant disorders who lack an HLA-matched sibling donor. Given the rapid growth of registries of HLA-typed volunteers-including nearly 3,000,000 people-it is now possible to identify a suitable unrelated marrow donor for up to 50% of patients. In this review the recent acquisitions regarding the structure of HLA complex, the new molecular typing technologies and clinical results obtained with unrelated marrow transplants, will be considered.

Abstract

Marrow transplantation from a phenotypically identical unrelated donor has become a feasible and curative form of treatment for patients with several malignant and nonmalignant disorders who lack an HLA-matched sibling donor. Given the rapid growth of registries of HLA-typed volunteers-including nearly 3,000,000 people-it is now possible to identify a suitable unrelated marrow donor for up to 50% of patients. In this review the recent acquisitions regarding the structure of HLA complex, the new molecular typing technologies and clinical results obtained with unrelated marrow transplants, will be considered.
