AbstractThe first experience of bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for thalassemia in Hong Kong is reported. Of the three children transplanted using a matched allogeneic donor, two have been surviving disease free 291 and 256 days post-BMT respectively. The other child rejected the graft and remained transfusion dependent. Mild graft versus host disease occurred in one of the children which subsided on cyclosporin A alone. The regimen-related toxicities were mild and easily manageable. Thus the result is encouraging and the procedure is now accepted as an option of treatment for good risk patients in Hong Kong.
