Apheresis

A simple, painless process in which blood is drawn from a patient's or donor's arm and circulated through a filter which removes stem cells from the blood. The rest of the blood is returned back to the patient or donor. Apheresis produces no side effects or discomfort for the blood stem cell donor. This is the procedure used for a Peripheral Blood Stem Cell (PBSC) Donation.
