Improved tissue typing has made a major contribution to the development in the outcome of patients with AML undergoing an unrelated donor transplant. Disease-free survival rates in the range of 40–60% are achievable using a myeloablative conditioning regimen in CR1 patients [36, 44, 69]. A potentially important advance is the recent demonstration that the excellent results achievable in children using cord blood, are replicable in adults, provided the dose of nucleated cells transplanted is adequate [70].

Equally importantly, patients who should not be exposed to the potential harm of an allograft can also now be identified. The ability of reduced intensity preparative regimens to decrease the transplant toxicity has allowed the extension of allogeneic transplantation to older adults with AML. However, disease relapse remains a significant cause of treatment failure in patients transplanted using a reduced intensity regimen. The major challenges for the next decade will, therefore, be the further refinement of our ability to identify patients whose prospect of long-term disease-free survival without transplantation is poor and the development of strategies which improve transplant outcome by reducing the relapse rate without increasing the risk of GVHD.
