YEREVAN. – Certain preconditions are created in Armenia to conduct
bone marrow transplantations, Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry
(ABMDR) charitable foundation director, Dr. Mihran Nazaretyan told

In his words, the entire ten-year activity of ABMDR pursues the
objective of conducting bone marrow transplants in Armenia.

`[But] In order for such surgery to be possible [in Armenia], the
level of the country’s public health, research, and diagnostics must
meet certain standards. It was impossible to even speak about such
possibility in Armenia in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, however, this is
quite real because there is certain funding, comprehension of the
matter, [and] also, understanding of the demand,’ the physician noted.

In Mihran Nazaretyan’s words, Armenia also has corresponding
specialists and medication supplies, and therefore this matter can be
resolved in a foreseeable future.
