Bone Marrow

Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside some of the bones in the body, including the hip and thigh bones. Bone marrow contains immature cells, called stem cells.Many people with blood cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell anemia, and other life-threatening diseases, rely on bone marrow or cord blood transplants to survive.Healthy bone marrow and blood cells are needed in order to live. When disease affects bone marrow so that it can no longer function effectively, a marrow or cord blood transplant could be the best treatment option; for some patients it is the only potential cure .Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside some of the bones in the body, including the hip and thigh bones.

Several diseases pose a threat to bone marrow and prevent bone marrow from turning stem cells into essential cells.bone marrow is soft, gelatinous tissue that fills the medullary cavities, the centers of bones. The two types of bone marrow are red bone marrow, known as myeloid tissue, and yellow bone marrow, or fatty tissue.Long bone cross-section showing both red and yellow bone marrow.Both types of bone marrow are enriched with blood vessels and capillaries.2Bone marrow makes more than 200 billion new blood cells every day.8 Most blood cells in the body develop from cells .
