cells used?

EBMT guidelines

Medicine is now moving forward and the list of diseases in which stem cell transplantation is a therapeutic standard is becoming longer and longer. See what diseases may be treated using stem cells (according to the guidelines of the European organization dealing with stem cell transplantation - EBMT (European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation)).
