The purpose of this study is to collect bone marrow cells for research purposes.

Study summary:

This study is designed to provide bone marrow cells for other research studies. The research is being done because there are ongoing experiments in a number of National Institute on Aging (NIA) laboratories that require access to normal human bone marrow aspirate for their studies of the immune system. These studies are done to understand how blood cells are formed and how they function. Samples will be used to study problems such as the immune system in bone marrow failure and related conditions. Cells will be used in laboratory research and may be banked for future laboratory studies


Inclusion Criteria: - Healthy volunteers age 18 and over Exclusion Criteria: - Significant abnormalities on health history questionnaire or in the results of blood tests - Pregnant or nursing mother - Participation in another research study within the past six weeks that is felt by the Principal Investigator to be incompatible with this study - Severe infection in the past two months - Immune disorder, or use of any medication that can alter immune system function - A medical or mental health finding showing inability to go through the procedure - Body mass index (BMI) greater than 29% - Chronic back pain, sciatica, or a compression fracture of the spine - Positive test results for viral infections: Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or HIV (AIDS)
