The bone marrow transplant haploidentico, in which the only donor supports by 50% with the receiver, has shown its effectiveness in the short and medium term, and is used increasingly as an alternative for patients who have failed a donor with a reasonable compatibility – so if it’s a relative of someone outside the family- , or in cases where it is necessary to perform a transplant urgently.
Haploidentico of bone marrow transplant proved to be so effective, that sometimes choose this technique even if the patient has an identical HLA brother
Haploidentico transplant proved to be so effective, that sometimes choose this technique even if the patient has a brother identical HLA, as pointed out Dr. Carlos Solano, President of the Spanish group of hematopoietic transplantation and therapy cell (GETH) of the Spanish society of Hematology and Hemotherapy (AEHH), which emphasizes that this procedure allows to find quickly an available donor , although it is still necessary to check its long-term results, and perform comparative studies with other modalities of transplant you are using longer.
The experts gathered in the GETH 2017 annual meeting have also addressed a topic of great interest for transplant patients, and it is that scientific evidence that relate the composition of the microbiota – the microbes present in the body of human beings without causing disease-predisposition to suffering or fight certain infections and diseases, such as the autoimmune nature there is.
The doctor Solano has explained that in the case of bone marrow transplants found that there is an association between the composition of the microbiota of the patient and the development of certain complications after transplantation such as graft-versus-host (GVHD) disease, by what is being investigated with the aim of modifying the microbiota to prevent the occurrence of such problems.
