Romanian Girl Saved by Israeli Innovation at Hadassah


A Romanian mother was advised to visit Israel to treat her seven-year-old daughter's rare genetic flaw, which prevented the girl's body from producing blood cells. Romanian doctors had given up and stated there was no chance to cure the girl's disease.

According to Yedioth Ahronoth, the Romanian girl was sent to a bone marrow transplant department in Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, where she was successfully treated in a revolutionary new stem cell process and will be released this week back to Romania.
