Date of Issue – 16 March 2015
Slovak Post has released a special stamp celebrating the anniversary of the opening of a special department for the transplantation of haematogenous cells that was established at the University Children’s Hospital and Clinic (UCHC) in Bratislava in 1995. The item was issued and put into circulation on the 16th of March.
The Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU) of the Paediatric Haematology and Oncology Clinic in the UCHC in Bratislava is the only one of its kind in Slovakia, where the transplantation of haematogenous cells in cases of children (ranging from 0 to 18) with oncology, serious haematology and metabolic issues (as well as some congenital malfunctioning of the immune system) are conducted.
The BMTU has been a long-recognized member of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT), and the results the Unit has achieved using this therapy can be compared to the results of the paediatric transplant centres in the most developed countries in Europe.
