Stem Cell Therapy

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Bone marrow is a soft fatty tissue that can be found in the bones. The bone marrow is where stem cells are created. Stem cells are the body’s raw materials, they can turn into red and white blood cells (carrying oxygen and fighting infections) and platelets, which in turn help the blood to clot.

In this therapy, stem cell transplants replace cells that have been damaged (due to a disease or chemotherapy) or are used to strengthen the immune system enabling it to fight different types of cancers, as well as other health conditions.

 

There are 3 Main Types of Transplants:

 

  • Autologous– Utilizing the marrow from the patient’s own body.  Through blood and urine laboratory exams, it is possible to isolate proteins, polysaccharides, by-products, neurotransmitters, and microorganisms that can be used to create specific autologous vaccines to reprogram, modulate and stimulate a patient’s immune system response.
  • Allogenic transplant – A transplant from another person, with closely matching genes.
  • Umbilical cord transplant – A  transplant from a newborn umbilical cord.

Favorable Outcomes in Elderly Patients Undergoing High-Dose Therapy and Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

High-dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (HDT-ASCT) can offer potential long-term remission or cure in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Limited experience is available on the safety and efficacy of HDT-ASCT in elderly patients. This is a single-center, retrospective study examining outcomes of HDT-ASCT for 202 NHL patients, ages 60 years and older, between January 2001 and December 2012. Overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) were analyzed according to age at HDT-ASCT, hematopoietic cell transplantation comorbidity index (HCT-CI), NHL histology, and remission status at the time of HDT-ASCT.

In this single-center cohort of elderly patients with NHL undergoing HDT-ASCT, this intervention was proven tolerable and effective, with results similar to those of historic controls in younger patients. Our data suggest that age alone should not preclude HDT-ASCT in elderly patients.
