The following report describes the initial stage of the activity of the Italian Cooperative Study group on cellular manipulation in hematology consisting of a retrospective evaluation of data regarding bone marrow (BM) harvesting processing, and proceedings from 20 Italian Centers. Two thousand, three hundred and eighty-four BM have considered: 1073 were performed for autografts and 1311 for allografts. A cohort of adverse effects in marrow harvesting were reported by 7 Centers out of 20, including one death caused by tracheomalacia during the anesthesia. Twelve Centers used blood separators as a mean for marrow processing. Eight Centers used the RBC removal technique in major donor/recipient AB0 incompatibility. Ficol-Hipaque gradient was employed in 7 Centers. T-depletion were accomplished with monoclonal antibodies in 7 Centers and elutriation in two Centers. Fifteen Centers provided to purge the residual tumour cells with chemicals (11), immunological (4) and chemo-physical means (1).
