Question

What is bone marrow of human body
 


Solution

Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside some of the bones in the body, including the hip and thigh bones. Bone marrow contains immature cells, called stem cells.

Numerous people with blood cancers such as luekemia and lymphoma, sickle cell anemia and other life-threatening diseases, rely on bone marrow or cord blood transplants to survive. 

Healthy bone marrow and blood cells are needed in order to live. When disease affects bone marrow so that it can no longer function effectively, a marrow or cord blood transplant could be the best treatment option; for some patients it is the only potential cure.
