Russia builds data bank of bone marrow donors - Comments

From 1,200 to 1,500 children in Russia need transplantation of the bone marrow each yearAbout 700 people had their blood tests taken at the Russian Children's Clinical Hospital in Moscow last Saturday. The same day their blood samples were sent to Berlin for study. Those people are the potential donors of bone marrow. Hospitals are capable of conducting only 60-80 bone marrow transplants a year. In other words, only 5 percent of the above number of children can be treated successfully. There are 5 million people at the U.S. register of bone marrow donors. About 3 million donors are registered in Germany
