Stem Cell Transplant

The process of infusing healthy blood stem cells into persons who have undergone high-dose chemotherapy for one of many forms of leukemia, immunodeficiency, lymphoma, anemias, metabolic disorders and many other diseases. Healthy stem cells are collected from bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood. Once the donor's healthy stem cells are infused into the patient's blood stream, the cells move from the blood vessels to the center of the bones, where they begin making new blood cells.
