Condition

An abnormal reduction in bone mineral density associated with an increased risk of fractures. The most common aetiology relates to post-menopausal reductions in circulating oestrogen, and as such this condition far more commonly affects females.

Β 

Individual at risk

Donor

Β 

Guidance at RECRUITMENT

Establish cause, and if not otherwise excluded may join.

Β 

Guidance at CT/WORK-UP

Establish cause, and if not otherwise excluded may donate by PBSC only. Inform requesting transplant centre that donor is PBSC only.

Hormone replacement therapy for post-menopausal females is usually not derived from human tissues, and therefore acceptable in this context.

Β 

Justification for guidance

Shearing stresses applied to the pelvis and lower spine during bone marrow harvest may be a particular risk in donors with osteoporosis.
