General term for the administration of bone marrow, which contains stem cells, that will re-populate the bone marrow after receiving radiation and or chemotherapy.
BONE MARROW TRANSFER. a graft of bone marrow from one individual to another to reconstitute the recipientâ€™s damaged immune or blood-production system.
Bone marrow transplant. A supportive treatment in which a cancer patient's bone marrow is replaced with healthy marrow. The main purpose of BMT in the treatment of most types of cancer is to enable the patient to be given very large, and potentially more effective, doses of chemotherapy or radiation, doses that cause severe damage to the bone marrow. There are three types of transplants: autologous (the patient's own marrow is used); allogenic (the marrow comes from a sibling, parent or an unrelated donor whose marrow closely matches); and synogeneic (perfectly matched marrow that comes from an identical twin).
bone marrow transplantation
Bone Marrow Transplant. A procedure used in the treatment of aplastic anaemia and MDS. The patient is given high doses of chemotherapy to wipe out the "defective" marrow. Healthy marrow from a donor is then infused into the patient. This is the only truly curative treatment for patients with severe or very severe aplastic anaemia.
bone marrow transfer. a graft of bone marrow from one individual to another to reconstitute the recipient's damaged immune system. See also adoptive immune transfer.
a procedure used in the treatment of cancer in which a patient's diseased bone marrow is destroyed with radiation or chemotherapy, and then replaced with healthy marrow.
bone marrow transplant. the transfusion of healthy bone marrow cells into a person, after their own unhealthy bone marrow has been eliminated.
Bone marrow transplant. A procedure used in the treatment of a variety of blood disorders, including leukemia, lymphoma and sometimes myeloma. The patient receives very high doses of chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy to treat the disease. This damages the bone marrow and makes the blood cell count fall. Replacement marrow is taken from a matched donor (allogeneic bone marrow transplant) or from the patient themselves (autologous bone marrow transplant) under a general anesthetic and returned to the patient through a vein (or central venous line) in a similar way to a blood transfusion. Peripheral blood stem cells may be used instead, especially for autografts.
Bone marrow transplant. A procedure developed to treat some forms of cancer and other diseases. There are several types of BMT's, depending on who donates the marrow (see Autologous, Allogeneic, and Syngeneic). Stem cells are removed from the bone marrow for transplant.
Bone marrow transplant. A procedure in which your cancerous bone marrow is killed of with high doses of chemotherapy and radiation and then replaced with healthy donor marrow (sometimes called a stem cell transplant).
Bone marrow transplant. A transfer of donor bone marrow to replace bone marrow that radiation therapy has damaged.
Bone Marrow Transplant. Giving healthy bone marrow to patients whose marrow is damaged. There are two types: allogeneic and autologous.
Bone Marrow Transplant. a transplant that uses stem cells collected from bone marrow.
Bone Marrow Transplant. Procedure in which bone marrow of the patient is destroyed by chemotherapy and/or radiation and then replaced with healthy cells from a compatible donor; also known as Stem Cell Transplant.
