Bone Marrow Transplant

A Bone Marrow Transplant is a procedure to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with the healthy bone marrow stem cells.

Bone marrow transplant is also known as Stem Cell Transplant. BMT is a procedure performed for the patients suffering from malignant blood disorders (Leukemia, multiple myeloma and lymphoma etc.) as well as non-malignant blood disorders (sickle cell anemia, aplastic anemia and thalassemia etc.).

Bone Marrow Transplant is not a surgery as we think of it, this is a procedure similar to blood transfusion, however this procedure is a complex one requiring sophisticated infrastructure and machineries.

In the procedure when healthy blood stem cells are transplanted to the patient, these healthy blood cells go to the bone marrow starting the production of fresh blood cells. i.e., RBCs, Platelets and WBCs.

Overview of Bone Marrow Transplant:

Stem Cells of Bone Marrow facilitates the creation of;

  • Red Blood Cells – They carry oxygen in the whole body.
  • White Blood Cells – Fight against infection in the human body.
  • Platelets – It produce clots to stop excessive bleeding of the body.


Diseases that are treated by Bone Marrow Transplant or Stem Cell Transplant:


It is malignancy of the blood cells. In leukemia, abnormal blood cells are produced in bone marrow of a human body. Leukemia, is a group of blood cancer that starts in the bone marrow which results in high number of abnormal blood cells. In this disease, the blood cells are formed abnormally and they are called leukemia cells.

Common types of Leukemia;

  • Acute Myeloid Leukemia
  • Acute Lymphocytic leukemia
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
  • Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
  • Hairy cell leukemia
  • Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia



Lymphoma is type of cancer that begins in infection fighting cells of immune system called Lymphocytes. These cells are in the lymph nodes, thymus , spleen and the bone marrow of a human being. When a Patient has lymphoma, The lymphocytes start to grow out of control. Read more…


Types of Lymphoma;

  • Non- Hodgkin
  • Hodgkin


Multiple myeloma;

Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer formed by malignant plasma cells. The normal plasma cells are found in the bone marrow &they are an important part of the immune system.

The immune system is made up of several types of cells that work together to fight infections & other diseases in human body. Lymphocytes (The lymph cells) are the main cell type of the immune system.



Thalassemia is genetic blood disorder. Individuals who are having Thalassemia disease are unable to produce enough hemoglobin which causes severe anemia. When there is lack of hemoglobin in the RBCs, oxygen do not get to all the parts of the human body and this results in starving of different organs for oxygen and as a result they do not function properly.

There are 2 primary types of Thalassemia disease found in human body :

  • Alpha Thalassemia
  • Beta Thalassemia disease, also called Cooley’s Anemia


Sickle Cell Anemia:

Sickle cell disease is the most common inherited blood disorder. This disease gets its name because when a patient have SCD, your red blood cells look like a SICKLE, which is a C-shaped farm tool.

The RBC contains a molecule called hemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout the human body. In a healthy individual, hemoglobin is flexible, round & smooth.

That allows RBC to glide easily through blood stream. But if someone has Sickle cell disease, it develops rods that clump together which causes RBC to become inflexible & curved.

The odd shaped cells block the blood flow.


Aplastic Anemia:

A stem cell transplant or Bone marrow transplant (BMT) is performed to rebuild/restructure the bone marrow with stem cells from a HLA matched donor might be the ONLY successful treatment which is available for patients suffering from severe aplastic anemia in current times.

A Bone marrow transplant also known as stem cell transplant is generally the treatment offered to people who are young and to ones those have a HLA matching donor who is most often a biological sibling.


Types of Bone Marrow Transplant:

Autologous Bone Marrow Transplant:

This process includes the uses of patient’s own stem cells. It involves harvesting your cells before starting the therapy like chemotherapy to cells.

Once the treatment is done, your own cells are returned to your body.


Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant:

It involves the use of donor cells. It must be patient’s relatives or family members. Allogeneic bne marrow transplant is required if you have a condition of damaged bone marrow cells.

It also suppresses your immune systems.


Umbilical Cord Blood Transplant:

It is a type of allogeneic bone marrow transplant. In this, stem cells are taken from newborn baby’s umbilical cord right after the birth. Then, these stems are frozen and stored until they are needed to transplant. Due to a smaller number of stem cells, it takes a lot of time to recover.


Why Bone Marrow Transplant is needed?

Replaces existing Bone Marrow and restore its normal function after high doses of chemotherapy given to cure malignancy. This process if rescue.

Regenerates new immune system that fights against leukemia.

Replaces damaged Bone Marrow with the healthy Bone Marrow to prevent more damaged from the disease.
