Here's the link to the trial information:

Cord blood unit(s) must be matched at a minimum of 4/6 to the recipient at HLA-A and B at low resolution using DNA-based typing and HLA-DRB1 at high resolution using DNA-based typing. Based on a published report from Eurocord, for single unit transplantation, the single unit pre-cryopreserved total nucleated cell (TNC) dose must be a minimum of 4.0 x10^7/kg recipient weight. For double cord transplants, each unit must have a minimum of 1.5 x10^7/kg pre-cryopreserved TNC and a minimum total of 4.0 x10^7/kg (sum of unit 1 and unit 2). For non-red blood cell depleted units, the minimum pre-cryopreserved TNC dose is 2.0 x10^7/kg recipient weight. or HLA haplo first degree relatives of the patient including biological parents, siblings or half siblings, or children with 2, 3, or 4 mismatches using DNA-based typing. A unidirectional mismatch in either the graft versus host or ho...
