what's allogeneic bone marrow transplantation like?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Romeo Mandanas

BMT from a donor: Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (bmt) uses another person as the source of stem cells (bone marrow) as opposed to autologous bmt which uses the patient's own cells (usually frozen). Syngeneic bmt uses an identical twin for the donor. Allogeneic donors can be relatives (usually siblings) or totally unrelated. For more info on bmt check out: http://marrow.Org/.
