derived from the same person; people facing surgery can bank their own blood for their use as an autologous donation; or a person might receive an autologous skin graft from another part of his or her body.
Occurring naturally and normally in a certain type of tissue or in a specific structure of the body. Sometimes used to denote a neoplasm derived from cells that occur normally at that site. e.g. squamous cell carcinoma in the upper esophagus.
A form of transplantation where stem cells are removed from a leukemia/lymphoma patient before ablative therapy. The stem cells are then transplanted back into the patient
Blood that one has donated for one's self, often in preparation for elective surgery.
A transplant that involves using stem cells that are harvested from the same person receiving the transplant. CORD BLOOD BANKING: A method of storing stem cells collected from fetal umbilical cord blood over a prolonged period of time.
Term used to denote derivation from self. Tissue from one person returned to the same person is termed an autologous sample.
From the patient him/herself; as in autologous stem-cell transplant (autos = self; Greek)
one's own; for example, autologous blood is a patient's own blood which is removed prior to surgery in case a patient needs a transfusion during or after surgery
when describing transplantation biology, the donating individual is one's self
in reference to transplantation biology, the donor and the recipient of the cells or tissue are the same person. Tissue originating from within one's self. Derived from an organism's tissue or DNA.
derived from organisms of the selfsame individual; "autologous blood donation"
tissue which originates from the patient (related to self).
From the same person. An autologous bone marrow transplant is a procedure in which bone marrow that has been removed from a patient is given back to that patient.
Originating from self. Tissue grafted from one part of the body to elsewhere on the same patient is considered autologous.
The stem cells are from the patient. These types of transplants are used when the patientâ€™s stem cells are not diseased.
recipient and donor are identical[ back
An organ or tissue taken from the same individual. For example, a heart transplant patient may have blood taken prior to surgery to replace expected blood-loss during the operation. Another form of autologous transplant is the use of muscle tissue from a person's leg to surgically reconstruct their damaged hand. Back to glossary index
A graft or tissue from the same source; that is, taken from the patient and then returned to the patient.
Coming from the same individual, as opposed to being donated by another individual.
In blood transfusion and transplantation, a situation in which the donor and recipient are the same person. See the entire definition of Autologous
Relating to the originating organism. For example, an autologous transplant involves the transplantation of material back into the original donor organism.
Pronunciation: (aw-TAHL-o-gus) Taken from an individual's own tissues, cells, or DNA.
Of oneself- an autologous bone marrow transplant uses your own bone marrow.
Derived from the same organism.
Involving the patient serving as his/her own donor, especially in transfusions and bone marrow transplants.
A transplant in which the patientâ€(tm)s own cells are used.
the collection and storage of blood or blood components from a patient for subsequent transfusion to that same person.
Derived from the same individual.
Cells or tissues obtained from the same individual.
Using the patient's own "cleaned up" bone marrow Bone marrow Found in the centre of all large bones. It is where primitive blood stem cells (blood stem cells) are produced. Blood stem cells develop into the red and white cells in the blood. Chemotherapy The use of chemical substances to treat disease. In its modern-day use, it refers almost exclusively to drugs that are used to treat cancer. Donor The person who donates their bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells for transplant to a patient Engraftment The acceptance of the donor's healthy blood stem cells when they are infused into the patient's own blood stream. If they are engrafted, the donor's blood stem cells then begin to produce normal blood cells. G-CSF If a donor chooses to donate their peripheral blood stem cells they receive an injection of Granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-SCF). This will activate and increase their blood stem cell production and encourage the cells to move from their bone marrow to their circulating blood where they will be collected for transplant to a patient.
originating within one self ( the patient will be their own donor)
Taken from oneself; in an autologous bone marrow transplant, bone marrow is removed from the patient, frozen, and returned to the same patient, following high-dose chemotherapy.
In transplantation, referring to a graft in which the donor and recipient areas are in the same individual. (SMD)
Refers to getting tissue (or marrow) back from yourself (auto means self) in a transplant. In an autologous stem cell transplant, for example, your marrow cells are harvested and the "good" ones separated from the "bad." Your marrow is then destroyed with radiation and chemotherapy and the autologous cells re-transfused.
The infusion of a patient's own bone marrow previously taken and stored.
Pertaining to the same organism or one of its parts; originating within an organism itself. For instance, donating your own blood for your future surgery is known as an autologous transfusion.
the use of a person's own tissue (eg, bone marrow)
Patientâ€™s own cells, i.e. Originating from the recipient rather than a donor Cellular response Where cells, often white blood cells, respond to destroy foreign materials directly or act to regulate other cells during an immune response.
the use of your own bone or blood during a surgical procedure.
Using one’s own tissue. An autologous reconstruction uses the patient’s own tissue to reconstruct the breast.
In blood transfusion, transplantation, or skin grafts for example, a situation in which the donor and recipient are the same person. Patients scheduled for non-emergency surgery may be autologous donors by giving blood in advance for their own surgery.
Tissue derived from one's self. Commonly used to describe “borrowing tissue from another body location to reinforce an operative repair.
derived, or taken, from a person's own body
a tissue or bone graft, when referring to a transplantation, in which the donor and recipient areas are in the same individual.
The bodyâ€(tm)s own tissues or DNA. search for Autologous
Autos, Greek = developed by the body itself, not brought in from the outside. Here: return transfer of own bone marrow, cleaned following removal.
In biology, autologous refers to cells, tissues or even proteins that are reimplanted in the same individual as they come from. Bone marrow, skin biopsy, cartilage, and bone can be used as autografts.
