Bone Marrow Transplant in India
We support patients for both Allogenic and Autologous Bone Marrow Transplant using bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cells and cord blood stem cells for various benign and malignant disorders like Thalassemia, Aplastic Anemia, Leukemia, Lymphomas, Multiple Myelomas and Advanced Pediatric Solid Tumors.
BMT is actually means infusion of stem cells (collected either from bone marrow or peripheral blood or cord blood) into the recipient. The type of bone marrow that is used for the transplant distinguishes the different types of BMT.
•Autologous BMT is done by using the patient's own stem cells.
•Allogenic BMT involves using the stem cells of a donor. The donor may be a relative, usually a brother or sister, or an unrelated (anonymous) donor. The donor needs to be Histocompatible Leukocyte antigen (HLA) match.
Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
Bone marrow transplantation is a procedure wherein stem cells from bone marrow that produce various blood cells like red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are injected into a recipient. These stem cells are also referred to as hematopoietic stem cells.
Nowadays, hematopoietic stem cells may also be obtained from peripheral blood after treatment with certain growth factors or from umbilical cord. Thus, the term “Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation” is now preferred to “Bone marrow transplantation” to include these other sources of hematopoietic stem cells.
It is a complex but lifesaving procedure which has improved in past few years. After a successful bone marrow transplant, you will be able to live normal life once again which was not possible otherwise.
Recovery after bone marrow transplant is long and stressful process for both the patient and the family. Initial few weeks are very critical as there are high chances of complications and rejections of the transplant. But, subsequently the patient starts to feel better as the blood count begins to grow and his immune system becomes stronger. Full recovery may take up to a year or two.
