Values indicate the number of patients unless otherwise indicated. Percentages (%) may not add up to 100 due to rounding. A high iron score refers to a Transplant Iron Score of 2 or 3, while a low score represents a 0 or 1. AML indicates acute myeloid leukemia; ALL, acute lymphoblastic leukemia; MDS myelodysplastic syndrome; AA, aplastic anemia.
