Recently I have reviewed the work by pioneers of bone marrow transplantation by Thomas and Storb – great publication and it gives a nice perspective on what we do today. You can read it here
The title says it all – to read more about this interesting concept of creating “of the shell” cell product read here: http://www.bloodjournal.org/content/126/23/2046

The Polish TV reporter Aneta Gracjana Mierzwa has just made a short document on donor and recipient of bone marrow transplantation. Recently Polish health ministry announced official statement and interpretation of current law that forbids donor and recipient relations. However, you cannot forbid two people to get to know each other if they want to, also you cannot forbid the donors and patients to use their names if they want to promote the idea of stem cell donations as we all have right to use our personal data for this purposes. The movie can be seen here: link to the movie
