Stages of Bone Marrow Transplantation
Human bone marrow grafting procedures were first attempted in the late 1950’s, and since then they have been increasing in frequency and success. As progress continues in histocompatibility typing, immunosuppressive techniques, and intensive care procedures, even greater numbers of these transplants can be expected to be undertaken for selected patients with severe aplastic anemia, leukemia, or certain other condition.1,2 Concurrently, there has been an expanded interest in the social and psychological factors that may influence the course and experience of disease,specifically including increased attention to the psychological aspects of organ transplantation.
