In brief: Yes
The bone marrow transplantation program at ucsf is certified by the nmdp to facilitate unrelated donor searches and transplants.
The process begins with a simple blood test designed to evaluate the recipient's hla genes. This blood test, called hla typing, identifies antigens or proteins located on the surface of their cells that are important for immune function.
