How the DNA/HLA Match Works

I just thought this would be helpful for those of you who aren't sure what a bone marrow transplant is.


We have three individuals now, out of a worldwide database of 17 million names, who match on all 10 markers. Two of our potential donors come from outside of the US. We should have all the final testing in for these folks some time this week; we'll be able then to select and recruit a donor, and set up a transplant schedule.
