HLA typing is done and a unique code is assigned to every sample.
Search For A Match
The patient’s tissue typing (genetic information) needs to match very closely with that of the donor, to enable a successful transplant.
DONOR : Once a match is found, stem cells are obtained from the donor. The process is usually as simple as drawing blood.
PATIENT : The stem cells are then infused into the patient’s blood stream.
