See below: The stem cells in the bone marrow and peripheral blood can be used. There are two type of stem cell transplants: autologous allogeneic before the transplant, generally most of cancer cells are destroyed by chemotherapy and radiation and then stem cells are transfused the same way as blood transfusions are given. Those new stem cells migrate to bone marrow and start to make new cancer free cells.
