SABOYA, Rosaura; DULLEY, Frederico L.; FERREIRA, Euripedes  and  SIMOES, Belinda. Partially matched family donor allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Rev. Bras. Hematol. Hemoter. [online]. 2010, vol.32, suppl.1, pp.13-15.  Epub Mar 26, 2010. ISSN 1516-8484.

Myeloablative or non-myeloablative related allogeneic bone marrow transplantation is a curative treatment in some oncologic and hematologic diseases. Unfortunately, only 25 to 30% of patients find a fully matched related donor. National and International donor programs are an option, however, much time is lost and patients can not wait because of their advance disease status or clinical deterioration. Partially matched family donor allogeneic bone marrow transplantation may be an option. This article reviews the literature on this subject.

Keywords : Bone marrow transplantation; partial match, family.
