My husband was just rediagnosed with Hodgkins after 2 years. Doctors are recommending a stem cell transplant. I have seen the definitions of both the Autologous and Allogeneic Transplants. Can anyone tell me the advantages of each? We also have my 2 year old son's Umbillical Cord Stem Cells but have been told that they are often not enough. Is anyone aware or using the umbillical cord and suplementing with the patients own stem cells?
