Cord Blood Stem cell transplants may use the patient’s own stem cells (called “autologous transplants”) or use donor stem cells. Donor cells may come from a donor (called an “allogeneic transplant”).
In autologous stem cell transplantation, the procedure uses the patient’s own stem cells for the transplant. The stem cells are collected from the patient in advance and are frozen. After the patient undergoes high doses of chemotherapy, either with or without radiation therapy, the stem cells are then returned to the body. This procedure aims to reset the immune system to stop it attacking the central nervous system.
