Mathrubhumi English | 15 October 2016 |   Malayali engineering student donates bone marrow to young ailing patient  |

 

Ajay Krishnan, a young engineering student at CET, Thiruvananthapuram has done the state proud by donating his bone marrow to a critically ill 12- year-old patient saving his life. Ajay is the third in the country and the first in the state to donate bone marrow to someone unrelated by blood. A fourth year Industrial engineering student, he underwent the procedure on October 3 for a patient ailing from non-curable emplastic anemia. Ajay had registered in the DATRI Blood Stem Cell Donors Registry a year ago showing willingness to donate stem cells. His profile was found genetically compatible to that of the young patient for whom the DATRI volunteers approached him. Even though the initial plan was to make stem cell transplants, the condition of the patient deteriorated forcing the doctors to suggest a bone marrow transplant. Ajay agreed to the suggestion and after the required tests he underwent the procedure. He is back to college after the mandatory three day rest period.  The DATRI Blood Stem Cell Donors Registry was formed in 2009 to facilitate genetic matching and profiling of blood stem cell donors to help patients suffering from diseases such as Thalassemia and luekemia. So far 204 donations have happened through DATRI.  Ajay who has shown an exemplary model for others to follow is the son of Unnikrishnan and Ajitha Unnikrishnan at Thekkeplanthottathu house at Parassala-  Courtesy
