The National Registry of Voluntary Bone Marrow Donors (Redome) officially launches this Saturday its application for cell phones to facilitate the registration of interested parties and increase the donor base. The experimental phase of the program began in January and 489 people pre-registered, expressing interest in being donors. Of these, 129 went to a blood center.
Currently, Redome has registered 5.41 million people who have expressed interest in being bone marrow donors. Most are in the Southeast (2.39 million) and South (1.13 million) regions. One of the problems is that most of those registered have their data, such as address and telephone, out of date. This makes it difficult to locate when the system indicates one of them as compatible for donation.
