Will the cord blood be a possible match for siblings or parents?

As stated above, yes! A full sibling has a 25 percent chance of being a perfect match and parents are considered a half match to their child because they received half of their genetic information from each parent. And, since a perfect HLA match is not necessary with cord blood transplants because of its young nature, siblings and parents can still be considered compatible even if they are not a full 6-of-6 HLA match.
