November 12, 1986|Associated Press

TEL AVIV — A hospital official said today that leukemia sufferer Mikhail Shirman is too ill to benefit from a bone marrow transplant from his sister, whose emigration was delayed 11 months by Soviet authorities.

Inessa Fleurov arrived in Israel last week, and her bone marrow was found to be completely compatible with her brother's, Hadassah Hospital spokeswoman Ruth Mekel said. But Shirman is in critical condition and the operation cannot be performed, Mekel said.
