985 new samples undergo HLA tissue typing

Dear friends, it is our great pleasure to inform you that another 985 blood samples from potential hematopoietic stem cell donors have been tissue typed using the molecular method for four HLA loci: A, B, C and DRB1. This has brought the number of tissue typed samples of potential donors to 44,259.

We are grateful to both the current and previous Government of the Republic of Croatia which has allocated funds in the budget to enable us to get closer to our goal, which is tissue typing all of the collected blood samples so that the Croatian Registry is operational and accessible to search for non-related bone marrow and stem cell donors.

We are also sincerely grateful to all of you who by joining the Registry have decided to help all those in need of stem cell transplantation, as well as the organizers of our actions who have made the effort to organize activities throughout Croatia.
