A Cord blood transplants is as dicey as a Bone marrow or peripheral blood transplant. The risk of infection may be higher after a cord blood transplant because of the longer time to engraft. The chances of developing GVHD is however low, but the risk is still there. As every patient's Case History is different from others, if you are considering UCBT for the cure of some problem do consult the experts in this field before taking a decision.

This is a wonderful post. I love how you bring in the "L" word at the end without mentioning it.

Here's to a happy, healthy New Year!
