Stem Cell Transplantation
Stem cell transplantation alluded to as bone marrow transplant, is a system that replaces undesirable blood-forming cells with unhealthy cells and also used to treat some genetic diseasesthat involve the blood. The basis for stem cell transplantation is that blood cells (red cells, white cells and platelets) and immune cells arise from the stem cells, which are present in marrow, peripheral blood and cord blood. Intense chemotherapy or radiation therapy kills the patient's stem cells. This stops the stem cells from making enough blood and immune cells. A stem cell transplantaims to try and cure some types of blood cancer such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. It is also called a peripheral blood stem cell transplant. Analysts keep on improving undifferentiated cell transplantation techniques, making them a possibility for more patients.
