Bone marrow transplantation, also known as blood and marrow transplantation, has evolved over the past 20 years into a successful therapy for a variety of malignant and non-malignant diseases that in the past would have not been curable.
 

Types of Transplants

Bone marrow transplantation involves the replacement of stem cells from bone marrow following a high dose chemotherapy and radiation. You and your transplant physician will decide which type of transplant will be the best treatment option for you. The two main types are:
  • Allogeneic (a donor supplies the marrow or stem cells)
  • Autologous (the patient's own bone marrow or stem cells are used)
This site outlines who is eligible for transplant, explains the entire transplant process from beginning to end, discusses how to become a donor, gives a long list of helpful resources, explains how doctors can refer patients, and much more.
