Bone Marrow Transplant (also known as stem cell transplant) uses transplanted bone marrow and/or stem cells to replace the diseased bone marrow of the patient. Therefore, people that undergo this treatment usually have leukemia, lymphoma, or other similar conditions. The replacement bone marrow or stem cells can come either from the patient themselves (autologous transplantation) or from another donor (allogeneic transplantation). In order to transplant the new healthy cells, the old cells are first destroyed using chemotherapy; then, the new cells can be implanted.Read More
