India’s Sahara Hospital, in association with an Israeli centre, is set to install a bone marrow transplant unit for stem cell transplantation and therapy.

Sahara Hospital director HP Kumar told the Times of India that the hospital does not have enough facilities to run a fully-fledged transplant unit.

Chaim Sheba Medical Centre bone marrow transplantation department and cord blood bank haematology division director Arnon Nagler said, "A sizable number of patients, who require bone marrow transplant do not get the facility due to various reasons. India also needs good centres and the effort must be appreciated."

To address the issue of unavailability of donors, the hospital proposes to start a national human leukocyte antigen registry.
