For certain patients with leukemia, multiple myeloma and lymphoma, stem cell transplants, including peripheral blood, bone marrow and cord blood, can be powerful tools in the fight against cancer.
In the past, doctors collected a patient’s stem cells through bone marrow in a process known as a bone marrow transplant. Thanks to technological advances, this process has largely been replaced by stem cell transplant, which collects stem cells through the blood instead of the bone marrow in a simple, non-surgical procedure.
