Two films which look at the challenge of understanding the body's immune system and the consequences for the rare baby who has no defence system to protect itself from infection.
2: An Unrelated Case
In the first successful bone marrow transplant a baby's life was saved by marrow from one of his sisters. Ten years later, in May 1978, a desperately sick baby was admitted to a London hospital. She had no brothers or sisters to act as donors and for many months was to remain in a plastic isolation tent, while her mother cared for her from outside the tent.
Robert Reid follows the hospital's attempts to replace the baby't missing immune system using bone marrow transplantation. The techniques of this complex new science are far from certain, so what are the justifications for using them?
