from 1-11 months post transplant. Favorable engraftment and survival was seen as compared to a control group from the COBLT study. The cummulative incidence of neutrophil engraftment by day ϩ42 (median ϭ 17 days) and platelet engraftment by day 100 (median 50 days) were 90.9% (95% CI 78-100) [pϭ0.001) and 79.5% (95% CI 63.6-95.5%) [pϭ0.003]. Overall survival at 180 days was 92.8% (95% CI 63.6-95.5) [pϭ0.001]. CD4 recovery was accelerated. Isolation and priming of ALDHbr cells is feasible and
