When Hope And Age Are Not On Your Side; Have Faith:a Fairy Tale Of Haploidentical (half Matched) Bmt Posted By: Dr Suparno Chakrabarti

Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplantation Developing A Haploidentical Bmt Program: Tribute To A Master Posted By: Sarita Jaiswal Out of an estimated 20,000 patients requiring an Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) in India, only 500 odd patients receive one. Keeping in mind the resource constraints, the major reason for such disparity lies in the lack of alternate donors. Whilst unrelated donor marrow and cord blood from Volunteer Donor Registries and Public Cord Blood Bank meet the need for the ethnic majorities in Europe and the USA, such registries provide for less than 10% of BMT patients due to both cost and an available match. In our initial screening of 50 patients referred for an Allogeneic BMT, a matched family donor was available in 11 patients and a suitable Haploidentical family donor was available for 49, whereas a fully matched unrelated donor from registries was available for none. With this background, we initiated a HAPLOIDENTICAL FAMILY DONOR BMT PROGRAM IN 2011, planned and conceived by Dr Suparno Chakrabarti. I had joined him in 2012 and since then we have tried to shape the future of HAPLOIDENTICAL BMT in our country.We are pleased to announce that we have completed 50 Haploidentical BMT in 40 patients over the last 3 years.
