Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure for a Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Treatment- Bone Marrow Transplant- Allogeneic.
What is acute myeloid leukemia (AML)?
AML is a fast-growing blood cancer. It’s also called acute myelogenous leukemia. In AML, the body makes unhealthy blood-forming cells (stem cells) that don’t develop properly. These cells grow quickly in the bone marrow (soft, spongy tissue inside the bones). They prevent the marrow from making normal red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. With fewer healthy blood cells, the body can’t fight infections or stop bleeding.
How does blood or marrow transplant (BMT) work for AML?
BMT, also known as a bone marrow transplant or blood stem cell transplant, can treat patients who have AML, including older patients. It replaces the unhealthy blood-forming cells (stem cells) with healthy ones. For some people, transplant can cure their disease.
The most common type of transplant for AML is an allogeneic transplant. This type of transplant uses healthy blood-forming cells donated by someone else to replace the unhealthy ones. These healthy cells can come from a family member, unrelated donor or umbilical cord blood. First, you get chemotherapy (chemo), with or without radiation, to kill the unhealthy cells. Then, the healthy cells are given to you through an intravenous (IV) catheter. The new cells travel to the inside of your bones and begin to make healthy blood cells.
The entire process, from when you start chemo or radiation, until hospital discharge, can last weeks to months. This is followed by many months of recovery near the transplant center and at home. Your transplant team will watch you closely to prevent and treat any side effects or complications.
