Sterile room. Transplant patient Matthew Farrow plays with his baby sister through the plastic wall of his sterile room at the St Louis hospital, Paris. Matthew had suffered from Fanconi's anaemia, a hereditary disease that results in a severe depletion of oxygen-carrying red blood cells. Instead of having a conventional bone marrow transplant, Matthew was given an infusion of blood taken from the umbilical cord of his sister, a compatible donor, at her birth. Blood taken from the umbilical cord & placenta of newborn infants has been found to be a rich source of the primordial blood cells produced in the bone marrow.
