While this is commonly used for the leukemias, lymphomas and aplastic anemias, a variety of other condtions are being tested including inherited immune deficiency, blood dyscrasias and some other inherited systemic diseases.
Ask your doctor if your condition qualifies.

In brief: Marrow Failure

There are several types of diseases needing bone marrow transplant to treat.
One group includes a failure of the bone marrow cells to grow and function i.e. Aplastic anemia; and the other includes cancers of the bone marrow cells that are destroyed with chemotherapy/radiation to treat the cancer, then replaced with a bone marrow transplant.
