The simple process of blood stem cell donation

Dr. Nezih Cereb and Dr. Soo Young Yang are the founders of Histogenetics, a laboratory which performs high resolution HLA (Human Leukocyte Antigen) typing. HLA is used to determine a tissue match between a patient and a healthy donor. For many suffering from a fatal blood disorder (like Leukemia, Thalassemia and other diseases) a bone marrow or a blood stem cell transplant from an unrelated donor is the only chance to survive. Both of them were well aware of the shortage of HLA matched unrelated Indian donors and saw an urgent need of a donors registry in India. Raghu Rajagopal while working in the US had encountered a situation where a friend’s fiancee of Indian origin could not find a HLA match neither in the US registry nor in other international registries. He became aware of the fact that it was almost impossible to find an unrelated donor for patients of Indian origin.

The three of them came together to found a registry in India to meet the increasing demand for blood stem cell donors…
