Clinical Services at Rush Allogeneic Transplant - The Transplant

Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant — The Transplant

Generally, the stem cells we have collected from your donor will be given to you on the same day as the collection. Therefore, the stem cells are not frozen. The stem cells are brought to the patient’s bedside after processing. They are infused into your central line, much like a blood transfusion.

The stem cells are infused relatively quickly, although the exact length of the infusion depends on how much volume is collected from your donor. Although reactions are possible, most patients find the stem cell infusion itself almost anticlimactic considering how important this step is. The stem cells find their way back to the bone marrow, where they attach themselves to the supporting cells and start to grow.
