Caption: Bone marrow transplant. Artwork of bone marrow being taken from a donor for use as a transplant to treat certain types of anaemia and leukaemia. The donor's marrow, which produces blood cells, is being sucked up by a syringe through a large-bore needle which has been inserted through punctures in one of the iliac crests, the ridges of bone on top of the pelvis. The collected marrow will be filtered and treated prior to infusion into the recipient. The recipient's own bone marrow may be destroyed before implantation by chemotherapy or whole body irradiation. This destroys any active bone marrow cancer cells & disables the immune system, thus reducing the chance of rejection.
