Study objectives

To study the presence of an alloreactive immune
response of CD4+ T-cells of the predominant
CBU, directed against the non-engrafting CBU as
a causative mechanism in CBU predominance.
To assess engraftment and engraftment kinetics;
to evaluate immune reconstitution, acute and
chronic GVHD, chimerism, toxicity, progression-
free survival and overall survival after double unit
