A bone marrow transplant where the new, healthy bone marrow comes from the patient themselves. Healthy bone marrow is removed and then high dose chemotherapy or radiotherapy is given. Later, the bone marrow is given back to the patient, so that it can start to regrow.
A process in which a patient's healthy bone marrow is withdrawn and preserved. It is later injected back into the patient to replace bone marrow damaged by high doses of radiation therapy.
(Auto BMT): Bone Marrow is taken from the patient's own body prior to high dose chemotherapy and/or radiation treatment. After treatment, the marrow, which may or may not have been treated with chemotherapy, is reinfused into the patient to restore the immune system. Also see Bone Marrow Transplantation.
During an autologous bone marrow transplant, patients' own bone marrow or stem cells are given to them after they have received high-dose chemotherapy.
A treatment for lymphoma. In this approach, the patient's own bone marrow is used as the source of blood-forming stem cells. It is taken out and stored (frozen) before treatment.

Transplant in which the patient's own bone marrow, rather than marrow from a donor, is infused during transplant to provide the body with a source of stem cells.
A bone marrow transplant using the patient's own bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells, which have been collected and stored at an early stage of disease. The marrow may be manipulated in the laboratory to try to ensure there is no risk of contamination with leukemia cells. See also bone marrow transplant.
removal, storage, treatment and restoration of the bone marrow of a cancer patient. It can be done as a treatment and/or as a method to enhance treatment. For example, in leukemia, the marrow is removed from the patient, purged (removal of cancer cells), and then returned to the patient.
A portion of the patient's own marrow is removed, stored and then returned to the body after the patient receives high doses of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. Sometimes the portion of marrow is purged of cancer cells before being returned to the patient. (Read about " Cancer Treatments")
A bone marrow/blood stem cell transplant in which the patient's own cells are used.
The replacement or recycling of the patient's bone marrow through the process of high-dose chemotherapy and surgery.
