MYJ | When a donor match can't be found

My stem-cell transplant to fight mantle cell lymphoma was possible because the donor search was successful. We found an unrelated donor in Germany and we were given those cells on August 22, 2007. That life-saving procedure sustained remission for another two years when the cancer recurred and was treated with radiation successfully last September.

But what happens when a donor match is not found? The following story explains new hope for those patients. Read on ...

ExCell Information for Patients

What is the ExCell study?

ExCell is a clinical trial studying StemEx® as an alternative transplantation option for adolescents and adults with leukemia, lymphoma and other high risk hematological malignancies, who are unable to find  a matched, related bone marrow donor.

The ExCell study is sponsored by the Gamida Cell-Teva Joint Venture. The JV is committed to advancing the clinical development of StemEx® and improving the treatment of adolescents and adults with hematological malignancies. 

Why is this study being conducted?

Umbilical cord blood has lower matching requirements for transplantation than bone marrow or peripheral blood grafts and is therefore considered a possible alternative source for grafting. 
In addition, cord blood transplants have been associated with a reduced risk for Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD).
