  • Acute myelogenous leukaemia
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  • Chronic myelogenous leukaemia
  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Juvenile myelomonocytic leukaemia

Multiple myeloma and other plasma cell disorders

Cancer of the plasma cells in the bone marrow.

Severe aplastic anaemia and other marrow failure states

A group of disorders that result in the failure of normal functioning of cells in the bone marrow.

  • Amegakaryocytosis/congenital thrombocytopenia
  • Fanconi anaemia
  • Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria(PNH)

SCID and other inherited immune system disorders

Diseases in which children are born without an immune system or with an incomplete immune system.

  • Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID, all sub-types)
  • Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome

Hemoglobinopathies

Hurler’s Syndrome and other inherited metabolic disorders

A group of inherited diseases in which the lack of an enzyme affects various organs and tissues, including the brain. Enzymes are proteins that play many roles, including metabolizing (breaking down) substances in the body.
