The availability of cadaveric marrow, which must be taken shortly after death and subsequently frozen and stored, may help alleviate this shortage.

This may permit tolerance of larger histocompatibility mismatches between donor and recipient and thus provide donors for larger numbers of patients who would otherwise not be candidates for transplant. Disadvantages of cord blood include the relatively small size of the collection and a somewhat longer time to engraftment after transplantation. Delayed engraftment does not seem to be a consequence of stem cell numbers, rather it appears to be related to ill-defined qualitative differences between cord blood and adult stem cell sources.

A second consideration is one that is optional but of growing concern and importance; namely, removal of contaminating metastatic cells by purging. It has been definitively shown that retrovirally marked tumor cells, of either solid or hematologic malignancies, can contribute to subsequent relapse when re-infused with the graft. To what extent micrometastases contribute to relapse in practice is unknown; however, as detection methods for metastatic cells increase in sensitivity, more and more harvests are being found to contain tumor cells and, therefore, are candidates for purging.
