Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing (except for patients with a major contraindication to hematopoietic cell transplant), Autologous SCT is not recommended outside of clinical trials, Allogeneic SCT is recommended after first complete remission in all patients with poor minimal residual disease, but not recommended for standard-risk patients with a sustained molecular response, After the second complete remission, allogeneic SCT was found superior to non-transplantation, Cord blood transplantation may be considered if no HLA-well-matched donor is found or the patient needs urgent SCT, Total body irradiation regimens are recommended for myeloablative SCT; reduced-intencity conditioning regimens should be used only in adults in remission unfit for myeloablative conditioning and elderly fit patients.
