New research says bone marrow transplants intended to cure cancer, may themselves cause the disease later in life.
A study by the National Cancer Institute says the reason appears to be the high doses of radiation that are a necessary part of the transplants. A follow up study on almost 20-thousand people who received bone marrow shows they developed 80 new cases of non blood tumors.
About 30 would have been expected in the group.
