A stem cell transplant or bone marrow transplant is a treatment in which there is a replacement of the stem cells residing in the bone marrow.
This is an effective treatment option, especially for cancers like leukemia, multiple myeloma, and lymphoma. This treatment can also be used to treat some non-cancerous blood diseases and genetic conditions like aplastic anemia, and inborn errors of metabolism.

There are 2 main types of transplants. They are named based on who donates the stem cells.
Autologous: Auto means self. The stem cells in autologous transplants come from the same person who will get the transplant, so the patient is their donor.
Allogeneic: 'Allo' means other. The stem cells in allogeneic transplants are from a person other than the patient, either a matched related or unrelated donor.
Experienced Oncologists from Kaizen collect stem cells from the same patient undergoing the process and perform a transplant. Here the patient and the donor are the same people.
As our oncologists follow the procedure of giving your stem cells to you, there is no complication that your body might reject them. This is a procedure that offers a high rate of success. This procedure is otherwise called ‘engraftment’. These replaced stem cells grow and make healthy stem cells in your bone marrow.
Stem cells are extracted for another donor and transplanted to the patient. Here the donor and the patient are different persons.
Just after the delivery of a baby, stem cells are collected from the umbilical cord, which are counted, tested, and typed before storing, for transplantation purposes.
Bone marrow transplants can benefit patients with a variety of bone marrow diseases that are both cancerous and noncancerous such as
There are numerous and various combinations of HLA types of tissues, which makes it challenging to find the right match. HLA antigens are got from both the father and the mother and are inherited.
Usually, the process of searching for a donor begins with the siblings of the patient (as they are from the same parents). There is a great chance to find the perfect match with a sibling and the percentage of chance is 1 out of every 4.
If a perfect match could not be found among siblings, the search would extend to relatives like half-siblings, and parents, and can also be searched among your cousins, uncles, and aunts. These matches have even lesser chances of getting a match. Spouses and other non-related people also might not prove to be a good match. When the transplant team doesn’t find a match here, the next search would be further extended to the general public.
Though it is very unlikely to find a match, there is the possibility that you might get a match because your search is wider now. To go on with this procedure, the transplant visits transplant registries, which are the list of volunteer donors. These registries have the data of millions of donors and an equal number of cord blood units.
