Definitions for "Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplant"
a type of ASCT in which stem cells from the blood are used.
Procedure in which blood containing mobilized stem cells is collected by apheresis, stored, and infused following high-dose chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
(PBSCT): Similar to a bone marrow transplant ( BMT), young blood stem cells are collected from the patient (autologous) or another matched donor (allogeneic) usually by a process called apheresis. High dose chemotherapy and/or radiation is given, and the stem cells reinfused to the patient to re-establish (rescue) the patients immune system.
