Bone marrow transplant

  1. 1. Lucrecia Porcú Agostina Redondo Dalma Ramirez Cielo Sampietro
  2. 2.  Bone Marrow is the soft spongy tissue that fills the cores of larger bones.  It serves an active function in the body by producing all three types of blood cells, as well as lymphocytes, wich support the immune system.
  3. 3.  Bone Marrow transplant is a procedure used to treat patients with life-threatening blood, immune or genetic disorders.  This includes leukaemia and bone marrow cancers.
  4. 4.  A bone Marrow transplant replaces the unhealthy blood-forming cells with healthy ones.  Healthy bone marrow stem cells are harvested from matching bone marrow donors.
  5. 5.  You might have a bone marrow transplant if you have some types of cancer, like leukaemia, if chemotherapy cannot kill all the white blood cells that don’t grow properly.  You may also need a bone marrow transplant if you have a genetic condition that stops your blood cells from growing normally.  If you have had an organ transplant and your body rejects your new organ you may have a bone marrow transplant if immunosuppressants can't stop the rejection. If the new bone is taken from the same donor that you got your new organ from, the transplant rejection is much less likely.
  6. 6. Autologous bone marrow transplant: Stem cells are removed from you before you receive chemotherapy and stored in a frezeer. After chemotherapy is done, your stem cells are put back in your body to add to your normal blood cells. This is called a «rescue» transplant.
  7. 7.  Stem cells are immature cells in the bone marrow that give rise to all your blood cells.
  8. 8. Allogeneic bone marrow transplant: Stem cells are removed from another person, called a donor. Most times, the donor must at least partly match you genetically, a brother or sister is most likely to be a good match.
  9. 9. Umbilical cord blood transplant: Stem cells are removed from a newborn baby’s umbilical cord immediately after birth. The stem cells are stored until they are needed for a transplant.
