a method that takes bone marrow from a suitable donor and transfers it into a recipient.
a procedure in which a patient's bone marrow that is diseased or destroyed by anticancer drugs or treatment is replaced.
Treatment in which healthy bone marrow replaces bone marrow that has been affected by a disease or by treatment for a disease
(trans-plan-TAY-shun) -- A procedure to replace bone marrow destroyed by treatment with high doses of anticancer drugs or radiation. Transplantation may be autologous (the person's marrow saved before treatment), allogeneic (marrow donated by someone else), or syngeneic (marrow donated by an identical twin).
blood cells are produced in bone marrow, in the central cavities of bones. To reconstitute the missing production of blood cells bone marrow can be transplanted to immunodeficiency patients.
supplies the patient with stem cells, which are cells that can develop into other types of cells. The stem cells replace those that have been damaged by other treatments. They can be transplanted from another person or from the patient, only if the cells have been removed and treated for cancer outside the patient’s body.
A patient's leukemia-producing bone marrow is destroyed with high doses of drugs and radiation and is then replaced by healthy bone marrow. The healthy bone marrow may come from a donor, or it may be marrow that has been removed from the patient and stored before the high-dose treatment. If the patient's own bone marrow is used, it may first be treated outside the body to remove leukemia cells.
This is a procedure in which the bone marrow of a leukemia patient is replaced with his own marrow (extracted before treatment), or the marrow of a donor.
Medical procedure that first uses high doses of anticancer drugs or radiation to destroy existing bone marrow. The transplanted bone marrow may be the patientâ€™s own marrow saved before treatment (called autologous transplantation), marrow donated by another person (allogeneic transplantation), or marrow donated by an identical twin (syngeneic transplantation).
Medical procedure to replace a patientâ€™s bone marrow. Patientâ€™s original bone marrow is destroyed using radiation and chemotherapy and replaced with healthy bone marrow cells.
See: Bone marrow transplant.
A medical procedure to replenish the soft tissue within bones that produces new blood cells. Bone marrow transplants are necessary when marrow has been destroyed by drug or radiation therapy for cancer, often leukemia. A bone marrow donor is usually a close relative of the patient.
Transfer of bone marrow, obtained by aspiration usually from the hip bones, from a donor to a recipient. In this case the donor bone marrow replaces the recipient bone marrow and provides a new immune system, curing the immunodeficiency.
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.
the transfusion of healthy bone marrow cells into a person after their own unhealthy bone marrow has been eliminated. There are a number of sources of these cells.
A treatment that replaces bone marrow destroyed by treatment with high doses of anticancer drugs or radiation.
a supportive treatment in which a cancer patient's bone marrow is replaced with healthy marrow.
replacing diseased bone marrow with healthy bone marrow from a donor. After an appropriate donor is found, the diseased bone marrow in the patient is depleted with radiation or chemotherapy, then healthy marrow from the donor is extracted and injected intravenously into the bloodstream of the patient where it migrates to the bone marrow to begin generating new blood cells
A procedure to replace bone marrow that has been destroyed by treatment with high doses of anticancer drugs or radiation. Transplantation may be autologous (an individual's own marrow saved before treatment), allogeneic (marrow donated by someone else), or syngeneic (marrow donated by an identical twin).
A procedure in which doctors replace marrow destroyed by treatment with high doses of anticancer drugs or radiation. The replacement marrow may be taken from the patient before treatment or may be donated by another person.
