Q: "Matched sibling transplants have a 70% to 90% success . . . but when you look at [NMDP], the survival rate . . . is less than 50 %. "
I was told by the NMDP: "Matched sibs do have a higher rate, but the NMDP is only for unrelated donors (you go to them if you don’t have a matching sib), so of course it has a lower survival rate."
