bone marrow transplant

a treatment that replaces blood-forming stem cells in the bone marrow that have been destroyed by high doses of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. The new stem cells come from the bone marrow of either the patient (autologous) or a donor (allogeneic). Bone marrow transplants (BMTs) were the first type of stem cell transplant used, but they are now done less often than in the past. See also allogeneic stem cell transplant, autologous stem cell transplant, umbilical cord blood transplant, hematopoietic stem cell transplant, stem cells.
