Stem Cell Transplant is performed to cure diseases associated with bone marrow, blood or some types of cancers. The process involves infusing immature hematopoietic stem cells into the patient’s body, which in turn produces new blood cells. These new healthy blood cells are capable of increasing the strength and immunity of the system.
To perform the procedure, hematopietic blood cells must be collected from the bone marrow, blood stream or umbilical cord blood and stored properly to maintain its exceptional healing properties. There are two different types of Stem Cell Transplants; one is Autologous, where the patient is considered as donor and Allogenic, where the stem cells are collected from another donor.
However, Stem Cell Transplant is still going through lots of research and development. The aftermath of Stem Cell Transplant can be disastrous to certain patients with infection, veno-occlusive disease, mucositis, graft-versus-host symptoms and so. Even the donor is also not free from the risks of the procedure. They might also grow drug risk, access risk or severe reactions.
Clinical trials are a major step in the development of Stem Cell Transplantation.These clinical trials are being conducted in 41 cities and are being performed by 55 different clinical trial investigators (doctors who conduct and supervise the clinical study). There are currently 98 different interventions being investigated in stem cell transplantation clinical trials. 98 interventions are being tested in stem cell transplantation clinical trials. Some Stem Cell Transplantation clinical trials are being performed and managed in 41 cities by 55 different clinical trial investigators. Clinical trials for stem cell transplantation are an important step in the development of new treatments and 50 clinical trials are currently active in the United State for stem cell transplantation.
