Frequently Asked Questioins
Is bone marrow (stem cell) transplant the only treatment for sickle cell disease?
It is the only cure for sickle cell disease at this time. Results of many studies show that transplants from matched related donors offer about an 85 percent chance of cure. Other treatment choices are the drug hydroxyurea and chronic red blood cell transfusions. These treatments may lessen the complications of sickle cell disease, but they do not cure the disease.
How are stem cells used for transplant?
Stem cells may be used in different ways, depending on the type of transplant. They may be saved and frozen for later replacement in the patient's system, or they may be given to the patient almost immediately. After cells are collected, the patient undergoes chemotherapy and/or radiation to rid the body of cancer cells. This also creates space in the bone marrow for the new cells. Chemotherapy and radiation reduce the risk of the patient rejecting cells that come from a donor. The harvested bone marrow or blood stem cells are given to the patient using a flexible tube inserted into a vein. These cells proliferate and result in the production of normal blood cells.
Is a bone marrow transplant the same as a stem cell transplant?
You may hear the terms “bone marrow transplant” and “stem cell transplant” used interchangeably, which can be confusing. The two terms describe the same treatment.
Stem cells can come from:
- Bone marrow (your own or a donor’s)
- Peripheral blood (your own or a donor’s)
- Umbilical cord blood
How long does it take to recover from bone marrow transplant?
Every person’s situation is unique, but most people can expect to spend at least 30 days in the hospital while your body rebuilds your immune system. When your doctors determine your immune system is strong enough, you will be released from the hospital to continue recovery at home.
What is the process for bone marrow donation?
Becoming a bone marrow donor begins with a simple cheek swab to analyze your DNA. If you are trying to donate to a relative, his or her doctor will check to see if you might be a match.
Who can I talk to about a bone marrow (stem cell) transplant?
At Celltek Healthcare Medical Centre, we have experience in treating children with sickle cell disease with bone marrow (stem cell) transplant. Our doctors and other health care experts can answer your questions. We encourage families to discuss treatment options and to ask questions to learn more about the care of their children with sickle cell disease.
