What is bone marrow transplant and Why is Bone Marrow Transplant required?
Diseases like leukaemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, sickle celled anaemia, thalassemia, aplastic anaemia, congenital neutropenia etc. makes the bone marrow diseased which cannot be treated with medicines. The diseased bone marrow results in reduced or defective blood cells production, which is risky for the survival of the patient.
In some cases, while treating other cancers, heavy dose of chemotherapy destroys bone marrow and thus replacement of bone marrow is required for the survival of the patient.
The replacement of diseased bone marrow with a healthy marrow is called Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) . During a Bone Marrow Transplant, health marrow is infused into the patient's blood stream, which migrates to the cavities of the large bones, engrafts and begins producing normal blood cells.
Types of Bone Marrow Transplants
Autologous Bone Marrow Transplant
Auto" means "self." Immature marrow cells (stem cells) are removed from the patient himself before he receives high-dose chemotherapy or radiation treatment. After these treatments are done, the stems cells are put back in the body. This is called a "rescue" transplant.
Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplant
"Allo" means "other." Immature marrow cells are removed from another person, called a donor. Most times, the donor must have the same genetic makeup as the patient, so that their blood is a "match" to the patient's. Special blood tests are done to determine if a donor is a good match for the patient. A brother or sister is most likely to be a good match. However, sometimes parents, children, and other relatives may be good matches. If the patient's identical twin becomes the donor then it is called Syngeneic bone marrow transplant. Donors who are not related to the patient may be found through international bone marrow registries.
