Answer

Allogeneic transplants are reported in the literature as case reports or in small groups of patients. [99, 7] A German study suggested that allogeneic stem cell transplantation may be an important alternative option for young patients with treatment-refractory mycosis fungoides, because "complete clinical remission can be obtained even in advanced stages."
