Platelet Transfusion in Bone Marrow Transplantation in Children

  • J. de Koning
Part of the Developments in Hematology and Immunology book series (DIHI, volume 2)


Bone marrow transplantation may lead to a complete recovery in children with aplastic anaemia, acute leukemia and severe combined immunological deficiency. The history of bone marrow transplantation parallels the improvement in transfusion procedures, i.e., the development of blood component therapy. The aim of blood component therapy and of the precautions taken is a fair therapeutic result without isoimmunisation, and avoidance of transfusion-induced graft versus host disease (GVH).
