Abstract

The aim of this manuscript is to present the history of bone marrow transplantation in Poland in the advent of the 30th anniversary of the first successful allogenic bone marrow transplantation. This was performed on 28th November 1984 by prof. Wiesław Wiktor-Jędrzejczak. The first attempts were made by prof. Jan Raszek (from 1938 in Lwow) and prof. Zofia Migdalska-Romaniuk (from 1950s in Warsaw). These are analysed. The most important steps in the development of modern Polish transplantology in terms of the haematopoietic stem cell transplantation are acknowledged. The current status of this therapy in Poland is also described.
