220 new samples HLA typed

We received a report from the Clinical Institute for Transfusion Medicine and Transplantation Biology of the University Hospital Centre Zagreb on new HLA typed samples. In May, 120, and June 100 new samples of potential donors were typed.
The samples were typed on three loci: HLA-A, HLA-B, and HLA-DRB1, and now the number of typed potential donors is 62,063.
A big thank you to the dear people who decided to join the Croatian Bone Marrow Donor Registry to help unknown people who are waiting for their matching donor. With your decision, you are giving hope for life to patients around the world.
A big thank you to all our action organizers throughout Croatia who helped as many potential donors as possible join the Croatian Registry, as well as to all the employees in the eight transfusion centers who diligently collect samples and thus increase the chances of recovery for sick people in the search for matching donors.
