a Matched Family Donor

It takes time, resources, and effort to find a potential unrelated donor especially in cases where time matters the most. Early or proactive HLA typing helps improve the chances of finding a suitable donor and gives more time to the clinicians and families to overcome the transplantation barriers including finances and recovery support. Additionally, early HLA typing and rapid donor identification have been shown to improve the overall survival rate in high-risk individuals.

StemMatch helps expedite your journey of finding the suitable match when time matters the most! With LifeCell, you get instant access to the largest registry of Indian origin stem cells with over 60,000 cord blood units that ensure a greater than 97% chance of finding a match!

So, why leave your family’s health to chance when your one proactive decision can make a big difference!

How a Close Match Can Make a Difference!

HLA (Human Leukocyte Antigen) are proteins or markers present on almost all cells of the body. Our immune system uses HLA to recognize own cells and foreign bodies! We have many HLA markers, half of which are inherited from the father and the other half from the mother. In case of a transplant, the doctor always wants to find the best possible donor to ensure

Better engraftment (growth & development of healthy blood cells)
Reduced risk of complications including Graft-Versus-Host-Disease (GVHD)

Proactively know the number of high-quality HLA-matched units available in our registry for your entire family!

When Every Match Counts

The chance of finding a genetically matched donor may range from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 1,000,000. Moreover, as HLA match is ethnicity dependent, the chances for an Indian finding a match is < 10% in global public banks. Interestingly, a few HLA markers are more common than the others or are found more often in certain ethnicities. Therefore, a person’s best chance of finding a match is more likely to be with a donor of similar ethnic background.
