Further inquiries that have reached Ezer Mizion regarding Adam Gomon, we wish to clarify that Ezer Mizion did a donor recruitment drive for Adam Gomon in August 2016 in his specific ethnic community, where the likelihood of finding a match is the greatest.
All the people who joined the registry at Ezer Mizion’s drive for Adam were tested and their tissue typing data has been entered into our registry, available for Adam and patients around the world who are seeking a matching stem cell donor.
We are gratified to announce that a matching stem cell donor has been found for Adam Gomon in Ezer Mizion’s registry. The donor is a 90% match, which is a sufficiently high match that can lead to a successful transplant when Adam’s transplant team will choose to proceed with the transplant.
In addition, every month Ezer Mizion tests an average of over 4,000 IDF recruits who join our registry as part of their induction into the Israeli army. Each passing month brings expanded donor opportunities from among the new IDF recruits that join Ezer Mizion’s registry, which might lead to an even better match for Adam.
Ezer Mizion’s firm commitment is to test every single sample that is given by new potential stem cell donors who join our registry. The donor recruitment drive for Adam for which thousands of samples remain untested, has no connection to Ezer Mizion.
