What is Bone Marrow Transplant/Stem Cell Transplant?
Bone marrow transplantation (BMT/SCT) is a medical procedure being used to treat diseases once thought incurable. Bone marrow transplantation (also known as stem cell transplantation) involves harvesting healthy stem cells from the donor to replenish the bone marrow of the patient. The new stem cells take over the production of the blood cells. It is the transplantation of multi potent hematopoietic stem cells, usually derived from bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cells, or umbilical cord blood from donor to recipient.
