At our unit we perform allogeneic as well as autologous stem cell transplantations.

Hematological diseases may be treated with medicines or stem cell transplantation. The stem cells are cells produced by the bone marrow. All blood cells develop from the stem cells. A stem cell transplantation is a procedure by which stem cells collected from the circulating blood or from the bone marrow are given by infusion to the patient.

Stem cells may be collected from

  • the patient him/herself – this is called an autologous stem cells transplantation.
  • a family member or an unknown, suitable, registered volunteer donor – this is called an allogeneic stem cell transplantation.

Our unit has been appointed as "Center of Excellence". Stem cell transplant unit is a part of Hematology section.

We have, since 2006, maintained an international quality standard of JACIE/EBMT for cellular therapy products; this, in itself, proves the high standards of work done at our stem cell transplantation unit.
