Trasplantation Stem Cells Top Open Access Journals

A bone marrow transplant, also called a stem cell transplant, is a treatment for certain types of cancer. For example, you could have one if you have leukemia, multiple myeloma, or certain types of lymphoma. Doctors also treat certain blood conditions with stem cell transplants. In the past, a stem cell transplant was more commonly known as a bone marrow transplant because stem cells were taken from the bone marrow. Today, stem cells are usually collected from the blood, instead of from the bone marrow. For this reason, they are now often called stem cell transplants. Part of your bone called "bone marrow" makes blood cells. The cord is the soft, spongy tissue inside the bones. It contains cells called “hematopoietic” stem cells (pronounced he-mah-tuh-poy-ET-ick). These cells can turn into several other types of cells. They can turn into more bone marrow cells. Or they can turn into any type of blood cell. Certain cancers and other diseases prevent hematopoietic stem cells from growing normally. If they are not normal, neither are the blood cells they produce. A stem cell transplant gives you new stem cells. New stem cells can produce healthy new blood cells.
