DNA profiling is widely accepted technique used for personal identification, by forensic scientist all over the world. Chimerism generates a potential challenge for correct identification of an individual because recipient acquires donors profile after allogenic bone marrow transplantation. We conducted a study on 15 different patients, who underwent hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

This study undermine the reliability of hair as a source of recipient own profile.
