Chapter 1

Blood and Toil

Peter Hollands

Abstract

In this chapter, you will learn about the amazing work done with bone marrow transplants to treat leukaemia and blood disorders. This is not an easy process for either the patient or the healthcare professional, but it is a tried and tested treatment for otherwise deadly diseases. There is also a discussion about the nature and importance of clinical trials using bone marrow stem cells to treat a whole range of disease, which is followed by a note of caution to anyone considering such treatment provided by some private clinics outside of registered clinical trials and in areas of the World where regulation of such technology is either weak or non-existent.
