Few people with MDS get SCTs?

The Mayo Clinic website https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/myelodysplastic-syndrome/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20366980 says, "However, bone marrow transplants carry a significant risk of side effects. For this reason, few people with myelodysplastic syndromes are candidates for bone marrow stem cell transplant."

Is that 2nd sentence true? Few people with MDS are candidates because of the risk of side effects?
