Bone Marrow Transplant

This is the only hospital with a dedicated 24 bed BMT unit with Pediatric ICUs and the back up of best in class radiation and medical oncology services.

The Centre offers both allogenic and autologous transplant using bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cells and cord blood stem cells for various benign and malignant disorders like Thalassemia, Aplastic Anaemia, Leukemia, Lymphomas, Multiple Myelomas and Advanced Paediatric Solid Tumors.

Bone marrow transplantation (BMT/SCT) is a medical procedure being used to treat diseases once thought incurable. Bone marrow transplantation (also known as stem cell transplantation) involves harvesting healthy stem cells from the donor to replenish the bone marrow of the patient. The new stem cells take over the production of the blood cells. It is the transplantation of multi potent hematopoietic stem cells, usually derived from bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cells, or umbilical cord blood from donor to recipient.

Who requires Bone Marrow Transplant/Stem Cell Transplant?

Stem cell transplant is a curative treatment for various diseases:

Bone Marrow Transplant

  • Thalassemia & Sickle cell disease.
  • Aplastic anemia.
  • Leukemia’s (ALL, AML, CML, CLL).
  • Multiple myeloma.
  • High grade lymphoma’s.
  • Neuroblastoma.
  • Wilm’s tumor.
  • High grade sarcoma’s.

Types of Stem Cell Transplant

  • Allogenic transplant (from a donor).
  • Autologous transplant (from self)
  • Sibling Donor Transplant.
  • Match Unrelated Donor.
  • Haplo‐ identical Transplant.
  • Cord Blood Transplant
  • Allogeneic BMT involves using the stem cells of a donor.
  • The donor may be a relative, usually a brother or sister, or an unrelated (anonymous) donor.
  • The donor needs to be Histocompatible Leukocyte antigen (HLA) match.

Autologous BMT is done by using the patient’s own stem cells.

Indications of Autologous BMT
  • Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia.
  • Multiple Myeloma.
  • Hodgkins & Non Hodgkins Lymphoma.
  • Germ Cell Tumor.

There are three kinds of bone marrow transplants:

  1. ** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **Autologous bone marrow transplant:"Auto" means "self." Immature marrow cells (stem cells) are removed from the patient himself before he receives high-dose chemotherapy or radiation treatment. After these treatments are done, the stems cells are put back in the body. This is called a "rescue" transplant.

  2. Allogeneic bone marrow transplant:"Allo" means "other." Immature marrow cells are removed from another person, called a donor. Most times, the donor must have the same genetic makeup as the patient, so that their blood is a "match" to the patient's. Special blood tests are done to determine if a donor is a good match for the patient. A brother or sister is most likely to be a good match. However, sometimes parents, children, and other relatives may be good matches. If the patient's identical twin becomes the donor then it is called Syngeneic bone marrow transplant. Donors who are not related to the patient may be found through international bone marrow registries.

  3. Umbilical cord blood transplant:Immature marrow cells (stem cells) are removed from a new born baby's umbilical cord immediately after being born. The stem cells are stored until they are needed for a transplant. Umbilical cord blood cells are so immature, that the problem of mismatch seldom occurs.

The patient should have a related and matching donor. The following tests should be done for both patient and the related donor and also please email the reports to us for opinion by India's leading specialist doctors.
1) HLA typing
2) Serum Ferritin Report
3) Blood screening Report
