Bone Marrow Transplant

A bone marrow transplant involves taking cells normally found in the bone marrow (stem cells), filtering these cells and returning them to the patient or another person.

A bone marrow transplant can use cells from your own body (autologous transplant) or from a donor (allogeneic transplant). By grafting healthy blood-forming stem cells into your body, your bone marrow will be replaced by healthy blood cells.

The bone marrow transplant will rebuild a new immune system that will fight existing or residual leukaemia or other cancers that are not killed by chemotherapy or radiation.

A bone marrow transplant is used to

Replace or save bone marrow damaged by chemotherapy and radiotherapy

Replace bone marrow with new stem cells for proper functioning

Provide new stem cells to kill cancer cells directly

A bone marrow transplant is not surgery. The new cells enter your bloodstream through a vein (catheter or tube). It is just like getting blood or medicine through your veins. From there, the cells travel to your marrow.
