The process of preparing the patient to receive stem cells for transplant. This is often done through the use of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Treatment to prepare a patient for a bone marrow transplant
Treatment with high-dose chemotherapy, and sometimes with high-dose radiation therapy, to prepare a patient for bone marrow transplantation or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation.
The treatment given before a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Conditioning can include high-dose chemotherapy with or without total body irradiation. Also called preparative regimen.
a combination of chemotherapy drugs, and sometimes radiation, given a few days prior to transplant to eliminate cancer cells and destroy the immune system.
The purpose of conditioning is to give high enough doses of chemotherapy and/or radiation to eliminate any cancerous cells that are present, to make room for the new cells and to destroy the immune system. This is done to prevent rejection of the new donor cells.
A phase in the bone marrow/stem cell transplant process designed to destroy cancer cells more chemotherapy. Conditioning involves combining high doses of chemotherapy and/or radiation.
destroying the diseased bone marrow with chemotherapy and radiation to make room for the transplantation of new and healthy bone marrow.
The process of preparing the patient to receive donated marrow. Often done through the use of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
The chemotherapy and/or radiation that is given to patients before the marrow or blood stem cell transplant. The purpose is to kill diseased cells so the new cells can grow.
In physical testing, conditioning is one or more actions-such as laundering, flexing, abrading or exposure to light, heat or radiation-used to consistently reproduce the effects of actual usage.
