In our bones, spongy tissue is presently termed bone marrow which is responsible for the formation of blood cells. Yes, all the blood cells are formed “hematopoietic stem cells” or simple “stem cells”.
The special characteristics of the hematopoietic stem cell help them to renew themselves. Besides this, hematopoietic stem cells or stem cells in none marrow also can develop into any type of blood cells.
“Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or bone marrow transplantation” is the technique that aids the injection of stem cells from bone marrow that produce red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets into a recipient after a short course of chemotherapy called conditioning.
Before the process of Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or bone marrow transplantation, the process of filtering stem cells is done and the goal of BMT is to transfuse healthy bone marrow cells in patients.
Bone marrow transplant treatment is used successfully to treat diseases such as leukemias, lymphomas, aplastic anemia, immune deficiency disorders, multiple myeloma, etc
The different types of BMT include the following: Autologous bone marrow transplant in which the donor is the patient himself or herself. And the other is the Allogeneic bone marrow transplant in which the donor shares the same genetic type as the patient.
Matching involves typing human leukocyte antigen (HLA) tissue. The antigens on the surface of these special white blood cells determine the genetic makeup of a person’s immune system. There are at least 100 HLA antigens; however, it is believed that there are a few major antigens that determine whether a donor and recipient match. The others are considered “minor” and their effect on a successful transplant is not as well-defined.
After knowing briefly about the bone marrow transplant treatment, let us understand the role of the bone marrow transplant team:
The bone marrow transplant team is comprised of a group of specialists that work together for a successful transplant. The team consists of professionals specialized in oncology, hematology, immunology, and bone marrow transplantation. Besides this, the role of the bone marrow transplant nurse coordinator who organizes all aspects of care provided before and after the transplant can never be forgotten. As the bone marrow transplant nurse coordinator educates the patient, caregivers coordinate the diagnostic testing and are present for counseling during follow-up care.
