Italian leukemia sufferer gets bone marrow from Russia

Op saves life of Cosenza man, 55

(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 6 - An Italian leukemia sufferer has got a bone-marrow transplant from a donor in Russia despite huge logistical problems due to the war in Ukraine.
    The transplant, from a donor at a five hours flight from Moscow, saved the life of a 55-yar-old Cosenza man in a hospital in Reggio Calabria.
    The donor was found by the Italian Ibdmr donor register and a 'chain of solidarity" was organised with flights to Moscow and from the Russian capital to Reggio via Turkey. (ANSA).
