400 new blood samples from stem cell donors HLA tissue typed

In the period from September 17, 2010 to October 14, 2010, there were 400 new potential bone marrow and stem cell donors tissue typed for HLA A, B and DRB1 (HLA – Human leukocyte antigen) using the DNA method.

The number of HLA tissue typed samples has now reached 18,275.

Out of the total of 33,031 bone marrow donors listed, there are still 14,756 blood samples that need to be tissue typed. Therefore, it is still necessary to invest a lot of effort before we can say that all of the blood samples from potential donors have been tissue typed and that the Registry is fully operational.

Until then, we would like to say THANK YOU to all those that have helped and for every kuna that has been donated to reach that goal!
