Caption

Treatment of acute leukaemia by bone marrow transplant: bone marrow harvested from the iliac crests of a young woman's pelvis is collected in bags & treated with heparin, which prevents the blood content from clotting. Bone marrow from both the donor and patient is removed & treated in the same manner. Marrow is initially taken from the patient prior to her undergoing an intensive course of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which should kill of any leukaemia cells and destroy the bone marrow, thus preventing a rejection of marrow transplanted from the donor, her brother. Bone marrow is harvested from the patient as a safeguard against the transplant not succeeding.
