Preparing for a Transplant

There are several treatments patients receive before a bone marrow transplant.

  • Myeloablative Therapy — High-dose chemotherapy and/or radiation given prior to the blood or marrow transplant is given with the intent to wipe out the patient’s immune system and dysfunctional bone marrow.
  • Non-Myeloablative Therapy
    Reduced Intensity — Patients receive standard doses of chemotherapy, followed by a blood or marrow transplant. It provides patients with a new immune system, while delivering fewer chemotherapy side effects.
