Women and people under 45 years of age are the main voluntary donors of bone marrow in the country. This is shown by a survey by the National Cancer Institute (Inca) based on the registration of 2 million volunteer donors. According to the Inca, 88% of donors are younger than 45 years and women represent 56% of people registered.

The survey also examined the number of donors by region. The Southeast leads with 48% of donors. Second, is the South Region with 25% followed by the Northeast with 14%. The Central West and North appear last, with 8% and 5% of the donors, respectively.

Although the Southeast come first, the tendency is to decrease the concentration of donors in the region. Five years ago, according to the institute, 57% of donors were enrolled in four Southeastern states (SP, RJ, MG, ES).

The National Registry of Bone Marrow Donors (Radome), administered by the Inca, is the third largest donor bank in the world, trailing only the United States and Germany.

The donor must be 18 to 55 years of age and good health. To register, the applicant must fill out a form and submit to the collection of a blood sample to be tested. If verified compatibility with any patient, the donation is made, which consists of a surgical procedure to remove the marrow from inside the pelvic bones through punctures. The marrow is recomposed after 15 days. To register as a volunteer donor, the person should seek the state hemocenters
