"Stem-cell transplantation remains the only available cure for children with high-risk, relapsed and refractory leukaemia. Only 25% of patients have a genetically matched sibling, however, a child’s parent is half a genetic match and a promising alternative. If proven safe and effective, this will provide a cure for children."
