Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT)

What is Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT)

A bone marrow transplant is a medical treatment that replaces your damaged blood-forming cells, also known as stem cells, with healthy cells.

The bone marrow is a blood-making factory, producing stem cells that eventually mature into red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. 

A bone marrow transplant can be done either between a patient and a separate donor (allogeneic transplant) or using the patient’s own cells (autologous transplant) where healthy cells are extracted and transplanted after treatment.

This treatment is necessary if your bone marrow stops working or your body is not producing enough healthy blood cells. It treats a variety of conditions, including cancers such as lymphoma and multiple myeloma.

Autologous BMT Process

In an autologous bone marrow transplant, the patient is both the donor and the recipient of stem cells. Remaining healthy cells of the patient is extracted and will be transplanted back to the patient once the anti-cancer treatment is done.

There are four distinct phases in an autologous bone marrow transplant.

Phase 1

Process of extracting blood and separating cellular and soluble components using a machine.

Phase 2

Anti-cancer treatment such as high doses of chemotherapy is given to kill off any remaining cancer cells.

Phase 3

Healthy stem cells are transplanted back to patient. This is known as day zero of recovery.

Phase 4

Recovery starts once the transplanted healthy stem cells start to grow and produce new cells.

Each phase will be done in Beacon Hospital and will be monitored closely by our haematologists and BMT nurse coordinators to ensure that your comfort and well being is always prioritised.
