The present activity of BM/PBPC transplantations is based on government funded transplantation centers. About 50 alloBMT/PBSC or 1.3 transplant per million per year were performed in the last two years with a tendency to further increase. An increase in the number of autoBMT/PBSC is also seen with about 75 autotransplantations or 2 transplantations per million of people per year. Indications and standard laboratory and clinical practices in Poland are similar to those in other European countries. However, chemotherapy prevails over total body irradiation (TBI) in conditioning regiments. An average long term overall survival of patients with hematological malignancies after alloBMT is higher in paediatric transplantations than in adults (0.56 vs 0.34, p
