Targeting the Inherited Paternal Antigen (IPA) and Matching for the Non-Inherited Maternal Antigen for Haplo-Cord Transplantation

What's the purpose of this trial?

In this trial, we aim to improve the outcomes of haplo cord transplant. Haplo cord transplant is a novel and promising way to improve transplant outcomes. We hypothesize that identification of a graft that is at least 5/6 matched and inherited paternal antigen (IPA) targeted (i.e., cord blood grafts share one or more IPA antigens with the prospective recipient) is more important to the outcome of haplo cord transplant than the nucleated cell dose.

This trial is currently open and accepting patients.
