In brief: Stem cell transplant
An autologous bone marrow or stem cell transplant involves giving a patient high doses of chemotherapy followed by infusion of their own bone marrow or blood stem cells.
It is a treatment generally used to treat certain blood cancers. Rarely it is used for certain solid tumors. There are clinical trials evaluating the role of these transplants for certain autoimmune disorders too.
