Chelyabinsk registry of stem cell donors saves sixth patient

Magnitogorsk girl who was transplanted stem cells in Moscow,
feels good

Stem cells that were transplanted to a girl from Magnitogorsk (Chelyabinsk region) at the Russian Children's Clinical Hospital in Moscow have successfully taken root.

According to Kirill Kirgizov, a doctor of the RDKB, the bone marrow stem cells transplanted to the girl have taken root. Now, in order to avoid infection, the patient is in a sterile box of the hospital.

Recall that on July 29, a stem cell transplant operation was successfully performed at the RDC for the treatment of an 11-year-old girl from Magnitogorsk with blood cancer. Stem cells were taken from a graduate of SUSU, who had previously repeatedly donated blood at the Chelyabinsk Regional Blood transfusion station. The donor underwent another examination at the Chelyabinsk Regional Blood transfusion station. Her well-being is also satisfactory.

As the Ural-Press-Inform agency was informed by the press service of the CHSPK, the student became the sixth unrelated stem cell donor from the register of the Chelyabinsk Regional Blood Transfusion Station. Today, there are about 4 thousand stem cell donors in the registry, giving patients a chance to treat severe onco-hematological diseases. Previously, similar stem cell transplants to four children and one adult patients taken from donors from this registry were performed in St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg.
