Scientists have developed a new bone marrow transplant technique that only requires a small dose of chemotherapy and may therefore make treatment safer and less distressing for children with genetic defects in their immune system (primary immunodeficiencies or PID).
Blood cell donations could be used to treat transplant patients with a particular form of cancer, according to a Cancer Research UK study reported in the journal Blood.
We cover the latest cancer research, including that funded by the charity. We also highlight other relevant material, debunk myths and media scares, and provide links to other helpful resources.
