Haplo Identical Stem Cell Transplant
There was a time when patients had to wait for a donor with 100% match which delayed the procedure of transplant and also affected the condition of a patient. But, with haploidentical stem cell transplant, pa-tients do not have to wait. In case of haploidetnical stem cell transplant, patients can undergo the surgery with a 50% match as well. It has helped many patients as they can now get the treatment on time.
How does the transplant take place?
The process for the haploidentical stem cell transplant is similar to an allogeneic transplant. The doctors will first conduct the HLA test to match the bone marrow. After that, conditioning therapy is administered on the patient. The doctors, will then, infuse the stem cells in your body in a painless process.
Recovery in case of bone marrow transplant is a long term process. After the transplant procedure the patient will have to stay for 3-4 weeks so that doctor can closely monitor the development and act imme-diately in case of any complications. Follow-ups are also crucial and should not be missed.
