What is bone marrow transplantation?

Bone marrow transplantation is a type of treatment to replace diseased bone marrow with healthy marrow and it is applied when bone marrow has failed.

Why are bone marrow transplantations are performed?

Bone marrow transplantations are performed to treat patients who are suffering from leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, aplastic anemia, thalassemia and some other immune system diseases.

Allogeneic transplantation

In the first stage stem cells are taken from the patient’s sister, brother, parent, relative, child or a donor who has a good level of match with the patient. To determine the level of match, special blood tests are performed. Then, high dose of chemotherapy or radiotherapy is applied and in the final stage new cells are given to the patient.

Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation can be performed to treat diseases such as leukemia, aplastic anemia, myelodysplasia and high-grade lymphoma.

Autologous transplantation

In the first stage stem cells are taken from the patient and specially reserved. Then high dose of chemotherapy or radiotherapy is given to the patient and after that stem cells are given back. The goal of this process is renegerating the healthy bone marrow.

Autologous bone marrow transplantation can be performed to treat diseases such as  lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia or Hodgkin's lymphoma.
