The Stanford Blood and Marrow Transplant Program nursing staff provide not only skilled clinical services during transplants, but also offer education and support to patients.
There are several types of blood and bone marrow transplants depending on who serves as the donor. The source of the hematopoietic (blood forming) cells further defines the type of transplant. The hematopoietic cells used for transplantation can be collected from the blood or the bone marrow. Hematopoietic cells, sometimes referred to as blood stem cells, are immature cells capable of dividing and developing into any type of mature blood cells.
Traditional transplantation methods are being advanced at Stanford to help all of our patients. These modified approaches include autologous transplantation followed by a reduced intensity allogeneic transplant, the use of a haploidentical donor, graft selection techniques, cellular therapy, monoclonal antibodies and vaccinations, and new treatment approaches for many diseases, including our protocol for mycosis fungoides.
If you are considering a transplant your Stanford Blood and Marrow Transplant Program physician will discuss which options could be most beneficial to you.
The Stanford Blood and Marrow Transplant Program combines 25 years of treatment expertise with state-of-the-art research and comprehensive support services to assure the best possible outcomes for our patients.
