A bone marrow transplant is a multi-step procedure to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells, and it is used to treat certain blood cancers like lymphoma and leukemia, as well as aplastic anemia and other immune and genetic diseases.
This talk will discuss current treatment regimens. It will also address the complexities that can be overwhelming for the family, as well as the patient, of going through bone marrow transplantation.
