mini-transplant

a type of allogeneic stem cell transplant in which lower doses of conditioning treatment are used before the transplant. This allows some of the patient’s own bone marrow stem cells to survive, which lowers the risk of very low blood counts during engraftment. The new stem cells kill off the patient’s stem cells over time, after the transplant engrafts or “takes.” See also allogeneic stem cell transplant, blood count, bone marrow, hematopoietic stem cell transplant, reduced-intensity conditioning, stem cells.
