Autologous bone marrow transplant

An autologous bone marrow transplant (BMT) involves removing blood-forming stem cells from the patient's own bone marrow, storing them and giving them back to the patient after intensive treatment. An autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplant (PBST) involves removing stem cells from patient's bloodstream (instead of directly from his or her bone marrow). Autologous bone marrow transplants may be used to treat leukemias, lymphomas and multiple myeloma. An autologous bone marrow transplant is different from an allogeneic bone marrow transplant, which uses the bone marrow stem cells from a matching donor.
