Bone Marrow Transplant

1- Bone marrow:

Dense bone has a central cavity called the bone marrow that is covered by the endosteum.

Bone marrow is a soft, vascular tissue that fills the middle cavity of long bones and the spaces between spongy bones and is seen in both red and yellow.
Bone marrow contains immature cells called hematopoietic stem cells, which become one of three types of blood cells:
– White blood cells, which fight infection;
– Red blood cells, which supply oxygen;
Platelets, which help Blood coagulation.
Most hematopoietic stem cells are also found in the bone marrow, but another type of cell called peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) can be found in the bloodstream. The blood in the umbilical cord also contains hematopoietic stem cells.

In order to compensate for the lack of stem cells, bone marrow transplantation with stem cells is actually a replacement for a sick person’s bone marrow with a healthy person’s bone marrow.

So that the patient can receive high amounts of chemotherapy or radiation therapy for cancer cells after treatment, such as leukemia, bone cancer and even thalassemia.

3- Bone marrow transplant methods:

– Autologous transplant: During this type of transplant, the patient receives a bone marrow cell:
– Syngeneic Transplant: During this type of transplant, the patient receives a bone marrow from another similar twin organ. Similar twins means someone who has a lot of tissue resemblance to the patient’s body.
– Allogeneic Transplant: During this type of transplant, the patient receives the bone marrow from someone other than herself or similar twins, that is, a person who has no relationship with the patient.

How long will I be in the hospital for my bone marrow transplant?

You will be in the hospital for about 3 weeks if you are having an autologous stem cell transplant, and about 4 weeks if you are having an allogeneic stem cell transplant. You will have a private room, which has been specially cleaned and prepared for you.

On the day of your transplant, stem cells are infused into your body through your central line. The transplant infusion is painless. You’ll be awake during the procedure.

How long does it take to know if a bone marrow transplant worked?

The time it takes to start seeing a steady return to normal blood counts varies depending on the patient and the transplant type, but it’s usually about 2 to 6 weeks. You’ll be in the hospital or visit the transplant center daily for a number of weeks.

Bone Marrow Transplant In Iran

In order to compensate for the lack of stem cells, bone marrow transplantation with stem cells is actually a replacement for a sick person’s bone marrow with a healthy person’s bone marrow. So that the patient can receive high amounts of chemotherapy or radiation therapy for cancer cells after treatment, such as leukemia, bone cancer and even thalassemia. however, given that bone marrow transplant is done in Iran with high quality and low cost. It is highly recommend to choose Iran as destination of bone marrow transplant. In the following, we discuss the bone marrow transplant in Iran.

Steps of bone marrow transplantation:

Step1: 4 or 5 days before the transplant, to increase the number of cells released into the bloodstream, a special drug is prescribed to the donor.
Step2: Blood is then taken from a large vein in the arm or a central venous catheter. (Flexible tube that is inserted into a large vein in the neck, chest, or groin)
Step3: The received blood enters a device in which its stem cells are separated.
Step4: The blood is then returned to the donor and the collected cells are stored.
Step5: This process usually takes 4 to 6 hours
Step6: Finally, the stem cells are frozen until injected into the recipient.
Stage7: After treatment with anti-cancer drugs or high-dose radiation, stem cells are injected into the patient, just like a blood transfusion (IV). This part of the transplant takes 1 to 5 hours.
After entering the bloodstream, stem cells travel to the bone marrow, where they begin to produce white blood cells, red blood cells, and new platelets during a process called cutting.
Cuttings usually occur within 2 to 4 weeks after transplantation.

5- Bone marrow transplant treatment time?

Doctors examine the results of blood tests at different times, as well as by bone marrow aspiration (taking a small sample of bone marrow with a syringe for examination under a microscope)
To make sure that new blood cells are being produced and that the cancer has not returned, they monitor the patient’s blood cell count by checking the results of regular tests.
Autologous transplantation takes several months, and allogeneic or synergistic transplants take 1 to 2 years, but it takes much longer for the immune system to fully recover.

6- Possible side effects of bone marrow transplant?

The main risk of bone marrow transplantation is increased susceptibility to infection and bleeding due to high-dose treatments.
Doctors prescribe antibiotics to prevent or treat infections in these patients and inject platelets or red blood cells into patients to prevent bleeding and anemia.
Patients undergoing treatment may experience short-term side effects such as nausea, vomiting, extreme tiredness, loss of appetite, mouth ulcers, hair loss, and skin allergies.
Potential long-term risks include problems with chemotherapy and pre-transplant radiation therapy.
Problems such as infertility, cataracts, new C cancers and injuries such as liver, kidney, lung or heart.
However, the incidence and severity of potential problems depend on how the patient is treated and should be discussed with the physician.

7- Does bone marrow transplantation affect patients’ lifespan?

According to research, ascertainment and the results confirm the effective role of bone marrow transplantation in the life of people with diseases such as cancer.
However, the rate of increase in recovery depends on many factors, such as the patient’s body function, treatment function, disease progression, and so on.
In addition, long-term use of this treatment can significantly increase the recovery time of patients after the initial treatment.

8- Is bone marrow transplantation painful?

Today, due to significant advances in medicine, the pain of this transplant has been minimized, but we must know that any operation is painful anyway.
For this transplant, pain is predicted for both the recipient and the donor for two to three weeks, which can be controlled by injecting and eating painkillers prescribed by a doctor.

9- What are the symptoms of graft rejection?

Rejection of the transplant depends on factors such as the patient, the extent of the disease, the time of the transplant, and…
However, in the event of long-term complications, the patient should see a doctor immediately and be informed of the effectiveness and acceptance of the transplant by the recipient.

10- Is hair growth possible after a bone marrow transplant?

Yes. It is possible. Although the patient initially experiences hair loss, after a while and if the transplant is finalized, the hair will start growing again.

11- Is chemotherapy better or a bone marrow transplant?

Cancers or malignancies require primary chemotherapy before they can be transplanted
Unfortunately, the improvement and disappearance of symptoms in chemotherapy is temporary. So in many diseases there is no choice but to use this transplant for patients.

12- Is bone marrow transplantation a definitive cure for cancer?

It depends on many factors, such as the type of disease, the patient’s age, the type of transplant, and the stage of the disease, and will vary from person to person.
So this question cannot be answered definitively. It can only be said that the chances of recovery for people who do transplants increase significantly compared to those who do not.
It is also good to know that the disease is more likely to return in autologous transplantation and less in allogeneic.

13- Is there a risk to the bone marrow donor?

Because a small amount of bone marrow is removed, there is usually no significant problem for the donor.
The most serious risk to the donor is the use of anesthetic during the operation.
The area where the bone marrow was removed may be sore for days, and the person may feel tired.
Within a few weeks, the donor body replaces the removed bone marrow.
Some people return to normal within 2 to 3 days, and in others it takes 3 to 4 weeks.
