Bone Marrow Transplantation Center

What is Bone Marrow?

Bone marrow is a spongy material found in the hollow
centers of some bones. It is important as it contains special cells known as
stem cells.

Stem cells create other specialized cells that carry out
important functions. Stem cells in bone marrow produce three important types of
blood cell:

Red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body

White blood cells, which help fight infection

platelets, which help stop bleeding 

Bone Marrow Transplantation

Bone marrow transplantation (also known as stem
cell transplantation) involves harvesting healthy stem cells to replenish
the bone marrow of the patient. The new stem cells take over the
production of the blood cells.

In some circumstances, it may be possible to take your own bone marrow from another part of your body
(this is known as autologous transplantation). The bone marrow may be cleared
of any diseased cells before being returned.

There are five stages in the transplant process

a physical examination of your body and general state of health

obtaining the stem cells that will be used in the transplant (known as harvesting)

preparing your body for the transplant (known as conditioning)

transplanting the stem cells

the recovery period, during which you will be monitored for any side effects and complications

Why Bone Marrow Transplants Are Necessary?

Stem cell transplantations are often required to treat
conditions that have damaged the bone marrow which, as a result, can no
longer produce normal blood cells. Any disruption to the production of blood
cells can be very serious, particularly if:

You do not have enough red blood cells. Your body will be
starved of oxygen, you will feel faint and tired and damage to your organs may

You do not have enough white blood cells. You have a
much higher risk of developing a serious infection.

You do not have enough platelets, which means you
will bruise and bleed more easily.

Some of the conditions that can affect blood and bone marrow are described below.


Leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells. The cancer
causes the white blood cells to replicate in an uncontrollable manner and they
do not develop any infection-fighting properties.

The cancerous cells can quickly spread through the bloodstream, resulting in a lack of room for red blood cells
and platelets.

This leads to symptoms of anemia, increases the risk of serious infection, and means that you will bruise
and bleed more easily.


Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is another type of cancer of
the white blood cells. However, rather than spreading through the bloodstream,
it spreads through the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a series of
connected glands (nodes) that are spread throughout your body. It is an
important part of your immune system, the body’s natural defense against

Inherited (genetic) Blood Disorders

There are a number of genetic blood disorders where
alterations (mutations) in your genes mean that blood cells do not develop
normally. These include sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, both of which
interfere with the production of red blood cells.

Who Can Have a Bone Marrow Transplant? 

The recipient of the transplant is in relatively good
health, despite their associated condition (which is why stem cell transplants
are often done when cancer is in remission)

Stem cells are available from a brother or sister with
the same tissue type, which reduces the chances of the transplant being
rejected, or graft versus host disease

The associated condition is not responding to other forms
of treatment or it is felt that there is a high risk of the condition
recurring without a transplant

it is felt that the benefits of a transplant outweigh the
