Bone marrow transplants help patients whose stem cells have been damaged by disease or high doses of chemotherapy. The treatment replaces damaged or unhealthy cells with healthy ones.
There are two types of bone marrow transplants:
- Autologous transplants. Healthy cells are taken from the patient’s own bone marrow for transplant after chemotherapy.
- Allogeneic transplants. Healthy cells are taken from a donor’s bone marrow for a transplant after chemotherapy.
CAR T-cell therapy is an immunotherapy where a patient’s own cells are removed and modified in order to identify and destroy cancer cells when re-infused.
