    Does "the bone marrow" come from (derive from) the patients' hip bones?

    Context:

    This Phase II clinical trial, designed to test this strategy to improve cardiac function, is an extension of earlier efforts in Brazil in which a smaller number of patients received fewer stem cells. For this new network study, 92 patients received a placebo or 100 million stem cells derived from the bone marrow in their hips in a one-time injection. This was the first study in humans to deliver that many bone marrow stem cells.

    You can see a bone marrow biopsy here (if you're really keen):
    Bone Marrow Biopsy 1 - YouTube
    It's actually taken from the back of the pelvic bone (ilium), not the hip. (But in English, this is often called the 'hip bone'. The real hip bone is lower, at the hip joint)
    Most bones have marrow, but the sternum and the ilium are popular for biopsies because they are relative large and close to the surface.
