In this video you will learn about bone marrow transplant and procedure in India at Manipal Hospital and cost of the bone marrow transplant.
The role of the marrow is to produce all the formed elements of the blood: red blood cells (or erythrocytes), white blood cells (or leucocytes) and platelets (or thrombocytes).
Normally, these cells are continuously renewed through a stock of stem cells in the bone marrow, i.e., “virgin” cells which can evolve in all types of cell.
This marrow is located in the center of long bones like the humerus in the arm, and flat bones, such as pelvic bone in the pelvis.
It is very different from the spinal cord, which is part of the nervous system located in the channel formed by the stacking of the vertebrae.
A marrow transplant involves taking a sample of bone marrow from a donor and re-implanting it in a patient.
Several diseases can be treated by this act. This is the case of leukemia and lymphoma, because in these diseases, cancer cells invade the marrow and then prevent it from functioning properly.
This is also the case of aplasia in which bone marrow is no longer functioning and no longer produces white blood and red blood cells.
Finally, we can also make a transplant when a harmful treatment destroys the bone marrow and therefore its cells: when there is no more red blood cells, there is a risk of anemia. The lack of white blood cells leads to infections, and disappearance of platelets is a source of bleeding.
