Functions of bone marrow • Red blood cells erythrocytes carry oxygen to the tissues • Platelets or thrombocytes derived from megakaryocytes help prevent bleeding and aid in clotting of blood. • Granulocytes neutrophils basophils and eosinophils and macrophages collectively known as myeloid cells fight infections from bacteria fungi and other parasites. They also remove dead cells and remodel tissue and bones. • B-lymphocytes produce antibodies while T- lymphocytes can directly kill or isolate invading cells

What is Bone Marrow Transplant A bone marrow or cord blood transplant is a process to replace unhealthy bone marrow with healthy bone marrow. Bone marrow transplants can be used to treat patients with: • life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia • diseases which result in bone marrow failure like aplastic anemia • other immune system or genetic diseases

How a bone marrow transplant works An autologous transplant is a way to treat cancer using very high doses of chemotherapy that destroy the bone marrow as a side effect. The autologous blood cells replace the damaged marrow. This is how autologous transplants are used to fight certain types of cancers such as lymphoma. An allogeneic transplant also treats cancers of the blood and offers the added benefit of using the dono r ’ s immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells. Allogeneic transplant is also used to treat some non-cancerous diseases such as sickle cell anemia. In non-cancerous diseases the transplant replaces defective marrow cells with the dono r ’ s healthy cells.
