Abstract

Bone marrow transplantation is being applied successfully to a larger number of diseases. Transplantation from unrelated individuals has been accomplished and efforts to develop a large pool of HLA typed individuals available for bone marrow donation are timely. Previously-typed blood donors and other normal individuals are a potential source of donors if the practical and ethical issues are resolved. These include: providing donors with understandable information and allowing opportunity to decline to participate, approaches which do not damage existing blood donor programs, protocols for handling requests, protocols describing the kinds of patients for whom donors might be sought, liability of organizations and personnel involved, coverage of donor's medical costs, coverage of other necessary donor costs, assurance of donor safety by standardized evaluation, and cost of DR typing. These issue are being addressed and it appears that recruitment of unrelated volunteers for bone marrow donation is feasible.
