Bone is the second most commonly transplanted tissue, second only to blood. It has been estimated that between 200 and 300 thousand people worldwide receive bone transplants each year; more than 25 times the number of people who undergo kidney transplants and 100 times the number who undergo heart transplants. Regional bone and tissue banks have been established in order to satisfy an ever increasing demand for bone tissue. The Queensland Bone Bank was first established in 1987. It is now the largest bone bank in Australia. The Queensland Bone Bank is a non-profit organisation; partial funding is received from the Queensland Health through the Princess Alexandra Hospital. In addition to being responsible for retrieving and distributing bone tissue throughout Queensland and Australia, the Bank conducts studies to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of tissue transplants. All staff working within the Bank are committed to the promotion of safe, efficient principles of bone and tissue banking. Promotion of public awareness regarding this and other tissue banking programs is of paramount importance.
