BMT is usually performed by two procedures :
- Autologous Bone Marrow Transplant
No donor is required for this transplant process, instead stem cell is collected from the patient. When a cancer patient's condition is not improved after application of normal chemotherapy doses, then higher dose of chemotherapy becomes obvious, which may harm the patient's bone marrow. In such cases stem cell derived from the patient's body is kept by cryo preservation process. After a session of chemotherapy this preserved stem cell is inserted into the patient's body which starts its work in 10-20 days.
- Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplant
In this process of bone marrow transplant, a donor is required. The donor has to undergo routine check ups along with a special blood test (HLA Test). This test detects whether the person is the right donor. After that stem cell is collected from his body and transplanted on the patient's body. This process has been applied to over 10 lac patients, where no adverse side effect has been found. But recently a highly advanced process is being applied, called Haplo Identical Transplant. In this process if half of the stem cell match between parent and child's stem cell, then the transplant can be done under observation of the experienced specialists. The success rate of this process is enviable. The disease type and patient's type may vary but it is a life saving procedure for many cancer sufferers.
