Paediatric Bone Marrow Transplant

A Paediatric Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) is a treatment for children with certain types of cancer or other diseases. The goal of Bone Marrow Transplant is to replace a child’s diseased bone marrow with healthy bone marrow.

Bone marrow is the soft, spongy tissue in the center of the bones. The Bone Marrow makes all types of blood cells, including young blood cells called stem cells. Due to blood cancer or blood deformities, the bone marrow can’t procedure healthy blood cells.

In BMT procedure, stem cells are filtered, and then put back into the same child (autologous bone marrow transplant). Or, Bone Marrow from a healthy donor is transplanted to the sick child/ recepient (allogenic bone marrow transplant). These stem cells will grow and become new and healthy bone marrow.
