About Bone Marrow Transplant
A bone marrow transplant is a procedure to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Bone marrow is the soft, fatty tissue inside the bones. It produces blood cells. Stem cells are immature cells in the bone marrow that give rise to all the different blood cells.
Types of Bone Marrow Transplants:
Autologous (for Multiple Myelomas/ Lymphomas): For an autologous stem cell transplant, the patient’s own stem cells are removed from his or her bone marrow or peripheral blood before the transplant. The cells are stored until they are needed for the transplant. Then, the person with myeloma gets treatment such as high-dose chemotherapy, sometimes with radiation, to kill the cancer cells. When this is complete, the stored stem cells are infused back into the patient’s blood.
Allogenic: In an allogeneic transplant, the patient receives bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells from another person — usually a sibling, but sometimes an unrelated donor.
Aplastic Anemia: Aplastic anaemia is a rare disease in which the bone marrow and the hematopoietic stem cells that reside there are damaged. This causes a deficiency of all three blood cell types (pancytopenia): red blood cells (anemia), white blood cells (leukopenia), and platelets (thrombocytopenia). Aplastic refers to the inability of the stem cells to generate mature blood cells.
Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant: Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) is a special therapy for patients with certain cancers or other diseases. A bone marrow transplant involves taking cells that are normally found in the bone marrow (stem cells), filtering those cells, and giving them back either to the patient they were taken from or to another person. The goal of BMT is to transfuse healthy bone marrow cells into a person after his or her own unhealthy bone marrow has been eliminated.
Thalassemia Transplant: Stem cell or bone marrow transplants are the only cure for thalassemia, but they’re not done very often because of the significant risks involved.
