Answer

High-resolution allelic matching, however, has improved outcomes in unrelated-donor HCT, especially in younger patients. Maury et al found that results for young patients who are fully HLA matched at the allelic level with their donor are comparable to those observed after stem cell transplantation from a related donor.
