Bone Marrow Transplant:
Bone marrow transplant, popularly known as stem cell transplant, includes taking of cells that can be found in the stem cells (bone marrow). These cells are filtered and are then given back to either other person or to the patient. The aim of BMT (bone marrow transplant) is to transfer healthy bone marrow cells in a patient when their unhealthy bone marrow has been treated for destroying the abnormal cells. Following are the diseases that can be successfully treated by BMT -
- Solid Tumor cancers
- Multiple myeloma
- Severe aplastic anaemia
- Immune deficiency disorders
Requirement of a Bone Marrow Transplant
- Replacing of a bone marrow with a genetically healthy bone marrow. This is prevents more damage from a genetic disease.
- Replacing of non-functioning and diseased bone marrow with a healthy functioning bone marrow. This is done in specific conditions like sickle cell anaemia, leukaemia and aplastic anaemia.
- Replacing the bone marrow for restoring its normal functioning after being given high-doses of radiation therapy and chemotherapy for treating a disease.
- Regenerating a new immune system that will help to fight off other cancers that are not destroyed by the radiation therapy or chemotherapy used in the transplant, or residual or existing leukaemia.
Different Types of Bone Marrow Transplants
A number of bone marrow transplants are there that primarily depends on the donor that include -
- Allogeneic Bone Marrow
Transplant: This implant requires a genetic type of the donor similar to the patient. The stem cells are then taken by apheresis or bone marrow harvest from a genetically-matched donor. This generally involves a sister or brother. Some of the other donors are-
- Unrelated Bone Marrow
Transplants: An unrelated donor provides genetically matched stem cells or marrow. National bone marrow registries can provide these types of donor.
- A Parent: When the genetic match is minimally identical to the recipient and a parent is the donor then it is known as a haploid-identical match.
- Umbilical Cord Blood
Transplant: Right away after the delivery of an infant, the stem cells are then taken from an umbilical cord. They then reproduce into functioning and mature blood cells that more effective as compared to those stem cells taken from the bone marrow of other adult or child.
- Autologous Bone Marrow
Transplant: A patient is itself a donor. In this transplant, stem cells are taken from a patient by apheresis or bone marrow harvest. These cells are then given back to a patient after they have been frozen. Rescue is the name given to this process.
