In brief: On match& indication

On cancers use autologous ( same person) bone marrow has excellent take , use of donor( allogenic ) in non cancer diseases like aplastic anemia , thalassemia, & immune system disorders , not as good as autologous due to nature of the disease.

In brief: Good

Transplants for nonmalignant diseases generally have more favorable outcomes, with survival rate of 70-90% if the donor is a matched sibling and 36-65% if the donor is unrelated.
Transplants for acute leukemias (eg, all, aml) in remission at the time of transplant have survival rates of 55-68% if the donor is related and 26-50% if the donor is unrelated.
