A new study offers a clue for solving a long-standing controversy in multiple myeloma: namely, whether a bone marrow transplant from a donor could be beneficial for patients with this disease and, if so, for which patients.
Dr. Rainer Storb's research into less toxic forms of allogeneic marrow and blood stem-cell transplantation for malignant and non-malignant blood diseases has earned him a $150,000 award from the prestigious Jacqueline Seroussi Memorial Foundation for Cancer Research in Israel.
