Diseases We Treat with Bone Marrow Transplant

Stem cell transplant continues to be investigated as a treatment for a number of different diseases and its therapeutic uses are likely to increase in the future. One of its earliest uses was in treating leukemia and lymphoma, cancers that affect the white blood cells.

Today, transplant is considered by many experts to be standard therapy for these types of cancer. It is also considered to be standard therapy for Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow, as well as Aplastic Anemia and other non-cancerous diseases.

In addition, many studies are looking at the effectiveness of bone marrow transplant to treat other types of cancer as well as autoimmune diseases. It may also be very effective in treating cancers that have spread from one site to another, cannot be removed surgically, or have failed to respond to other treatments.
