Adult Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT)

Blood-forming elements like red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are produced in the marrow spaces of bone. Stem cells are precursor cells which produce the above elements of the blood.

A stem cell transplant is often used to restore normal bone marrow function in certain diseases and disorders affecting the marrow like Leukaemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma and several other conditions involving marrow or those leading to marrow failure.
