Answer

Workup to determine feasibility for stem cell transplantation requires major histocompatibility (MHC) tests of the patient, parents, and siblings. Screen both the patient and potential donor for infectious agents, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), and hepatitis viruses. Pulmonary, hepatic, and neurologic evaluations of the patient are required to assess chronic organ dysfunction.
