- the donor is selected after careful evaluation of family history, personal history, psychological evaluation and blood exams to exclude transmittable genetic diseases and infectious diseases.
- the Italian regulations are much stricter than other European countries, as a result there are fewer donors, on the other hand, there are greater guarantees to the receiver.
