Bone Marrow Transplant


Bone marrow transplants are procedure that charges healthy blood-forming stem cells in the human body to replace the bone marrow. The main target of a bone marrow transplant is to treat diseases and types of cancer. Doses of Chemotherapy or radiation are done to cure cancer so that a particular person’s bone marrow stem cells can be permanently destroyed by the treatment of a bone marrow transplant. There are some of the side effects of the Bone Marrow Transplant like nausea, infection, bleeding and transfusion, hepatic venous-occlusive disease, throat disease, and graft failure. People operated on a bone marrow transplant have a survival rate of 65% and 62% for people with an allogenic bone marrow transplant.  Bone marrow transplantation takes 1 to 2 hours and it takes cells directly from the blood with a procedure called apheresis.

Bone marrow transplantation is effective in removing leukemia with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). The efficacy is assumed to be related to high doses of drugs and radiation that is administered before transplantation.
