4. What is bone marrow hematopoietic stem cell transplant used for?

With the expression “bone marrow hematopoietic stem cell transplant” we intend a complex procedure used especially, but not only, in the treatment of leukimias and lymphomas. Stem cells can be obtained not only from bone marrow but also from peripheral blood after a specific preconditioning of the patient, or from umbilical-cord blood.

 

Indications for hematopoietic stem cell transplant are acute leukimias, chronic leukimias, different forms of bone marrow insufficiency, thalassemias, Hodgkin lymphoma, non Hodgkin lymphomas, myelomas, other chronic myeloproliferative diseases, numerous genetic disorders and, as a recent indication, some autoimmune illnesses.
