Latest News Ad: A Unique English Grammar, a most useful language book containing almost all ground rules of English, is available with the writer (mobile: 01779477091).                    Make is followed by bare infinitive in active voice but to-infinitive in passive voice: We made him do it. He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

First bone marrow transplant in Bangladesh next month

Tarik Hasan Shahriar

The first bone-marrow transplant in the country is going to take place next month, in a great leap forward in treatment of blood cancer and thalassaemia patients at a much cheaper cost.

Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) will carry out the trailblazing surgical operation, says a daily sun report.

Health Minister Mohammad Nasim made the disclosure recently to a visiting delegation of physicians from Massachusetts General Hospital of the United States.

Health Secretary MM Niazuddin, Dr Bimalangshu Dey, a bone-marrow transplant specialist of the USA, Judie Foster and Dhaka Medical College Hospital-2 Project Director Dr Bayezid Khurshid were also present on the occasion.

The US delegation informed the minister about various aspects of the bone-marrow-transplant unit set up at DMCH with the assistance of the US hospital. 

Assuring the delegation of all sorts of cooperation is running the unit successfully, the minister said patients of the country will be benefited from this bone-marrow-transplant facility.

“This is one of the manifestations in the government’s efforts to take healthcare to people’s doorsteps,” the minister said.

The health minister also said people had to go abroad for stem-cell transplant, which was very expensive. “Now people will be able to avail this facility here at much lower cost. This will create a new chapter in the healthcare facility in Bangladesh.”

Bone-marrow transplant abroad costs a patient over Tk 50 lakh. Now the expenses are expected to come down to Tk 5-6 lakh for facilitating the treatment at home.
