Abstract: Over the last two decades, umbilical cord blood (UCB) and haploidentical transplantation (HaploHSCT) have emerged as alternative sources of hematopoietic stem cell for allogeneic transplantation. There are few retrospective studies and no prospective studies comparing both types of alternative transplantation in pediatric patients. We analyzed the data of 134 children with hematological malignancies who received a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from a single umbilical cord blood (UCB) (n = 42) or an "ex-vivo" T-cell depleted transplant from a haploidentical-related donor (HaploHSCT) (n = 92) between 1996 and 2014. Hematological recovery was faster after HaploHSCT than the UCB transplant group (median times to neutrophil and platelet recovery: 13 vs. 16 days, 10 vs. 57 days, respectively) (P  TCD haploidentical transplant is associated with advantages in terms of engraftment and early immune reconstitution kinetics. TCD haploidentical transplant was associated with lower incidence of infectious and non-infectious complications, especially in the early phases of the transplant compared with UCB transplant recipients. However, there are no advantages in transplant outcomes compared with UCB transplant.
