The Caribbean Basin has the unique distinction of a myriad of different cultures and ethnicities melded together by historical and geographic factors to yield a mosaic of physical and genetic features. As a result of this mixture, individuals descended from this gene pool have a distinct genetic makeup. This makes it difficult to find a match for those stricken with hematological and auto-immune diseases, in need of a stem cell/bone marrow transplant. http://caribbeanmarrow.org/
There is 39 million registered donors in worldwide registries. The likelihood of finding a match varies, from 77 percent in Caucasians, Latino 45 percent, Asians 40 percent, African descent 25 percent, and Mixed 20 percent.
