Lab One Bone Marrow Donor Club

The only way of full recovery from Thalassaemia is Bone Marrow Transplantation or Gene Therapy. A Thalassaemia patient can be completely cured by the replacement of Bone Marrow. Bone Marrow Transplantation is very expensive in Bangladesh, which is not possible for most of the people. Still, the bone marrow transplantation system is not so easy in Bangladesh. It varies and requires 10 to 30 lacs taka for bone marrow transplantation. Lab One Foundation is working at the private level, so that; bone marrow transplantation can be done successfully at a relatively low price. Very soon, the work of replacing the bone marrow will be started here. In case of bone marrow transplantation, donor is needed whose bone marrow will be replaced in the patient’s body after HLA matching with the patient’s bone marrow like blood transfusion. Bone Marrow Donor Club has been established, so that healthy people can donate their bone marrow voluntarily. The donor, who can donate blood, is the only person who can donate bone marrow also. It is good to know that none of the bone marrow is cut from one’s body and it is not replaced or transmitted to another’s body.
