Types of Bone Marrow Transplantation done at CARE Hospitals – Autologous and Allogeneic Transplants
Autologous transplants: Two important requirements for a bone marrow transplant are the donor and the recipient. Sometimes, the donor and the recipient may be the same person. This type of transplant is called an autologous transplant.
It is typically used in cases in which a person’s bone marrow is generally healthy but will be destroyed due to medical treatment for diseases such as breast cancer and Hodgkin’s disease. Most bone marrow transplants are autologous.
Allogeneic transplant: If a person’s bone marrow is unsuitable for an autologous transplant, the bone marrow must be derived from another person in an allogeneic transplant.
