Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplantation From A Related Donor
For stem cell transplantation, stem cells are taken from the "bone marrow" or blood in the veins of the patients who are eligible. These stem cells are then transferred to the patient. This transfer process with stem cells taken from the bone marrow is called allogenic bone marrow transplantation.
Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplantation
In order to be able to transplant bone marrow, first of all, close relatives of the patient are looked at. Siblings, if any, are investigated because the bone marrow is likely to be fully compatible in siblings. If the bone marrow is not compatible with siblings, close relatives are examined and necessary tests are performed. However, if there is no compatible bone marrow in relatives, bone marrow banks are applied together with the specialist doctor. Of course, the search for a suitable donor can take a long time.
Before Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplantation
Before the Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplantation procedure, specialist doctors first apply chemotherapy to the patient. After high-dose chemotherapy, stem cells are collected from the donor. These people may be the patient’s sibling or a relative. Afterward, with the transplantation of these collected stem cells to the bone marrow of the patient, the aim is to regenerate the blood cells and ensure that the individual regains his/her health.
Who is Suitable for Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplantation?
Allogenic bone marrow transplantation, which can be applied in different treatment methods, is a technique mostly applied in cancer patients. In addition, it can be used as a treatment method in some patients with bone marrow failure. It is a method used in the treatment of various diseases such as acute leukemias and chronic leukemias.
