Report: HCT Trends in Europe

This survey of HCT practices in Europe in 2011 collected data on 13,470 allogeneic transplants and 18,605 autologous transplants at 651 transplant centers. The survey revealed that: more allogeneic transplants used unrelated donors than used HLA identical sibling donors (54% vs. 39%); peripheral blood was used in 99% of autologous transplants and in 73% of allogeneic transplants; and cord blood transplants represented 6% of the total number of allogeneic transplants. The survey also revealed that in the last 10 years, the number of allogeneic transplants has doubled, while autologous transplantation has increased by 32%.
