The department specializes in the following types of bone marrow transplantation:

  • Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation is performed using cells from a healthy donor (related or unrelated). Before the transplantation, it is necessary to carry out the procedure of conditioning. It usually involves the administration of high doses of chemotherapy in combination with radiation therapy or without it. This is a prerequisite for the treatment of progressive disease, as well as for the suppression of the patient’s immune system and prevention of the donor cell rejection. After the transplantation, the patient requires hospitalization in special conditions (usually from 2 to 4 weeks).
  • Autologous bone marrow transplantation is a transplantation of the patient’s own stem cells. The patient’s presampled and frozen healthy bone marrow stem cells are administered to him after the high-dose chemotherapy. This allows to restore the patient’s immune and hematopoietic systems in a short period of time. However, this type of bone marrow transplantation is recommended if the disease is in remission or when the disease does not affect the bone marrow. If the tumor process has affected the bone marrow, autologous transplantation is contraindicated.

The service range of the department includes the diagnostics and treatment of the following diseases:

  • Thalassemia
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Aplastic anemia
  • Myelodysplastic syndrome
  • Acute and chronic lymphocytic leukemia
