Bone Marrow Transplant



Stem cells in bone marrow produce three important types of blood cells:

  • red blood cells  which carry oxygen around the body
  • white blood cells  which help fight infection
  • platelets  which help stop bleeding

Bone marrow transplants are often needed to treat conditions that damage bone marrow. If bone marrow is damaged, it is no longer able to produce normal blood cells. The new stem cells take over blood cell production.
