SCT vs Bone Marrow Transplant

For the doubters or the skeptics or the curious or the medically challenged and yes, that still includes myself, there is this info from Mayo Clinic:

[I]”…Although the procedure to replenish your body’s supply of healthy blood-forming cells [COLOR=”DarkGreen”]is generally called a stem cell transplant, it’s also known as a bone marrow transplant or an umbilical cord blood transplant[/COLOR], depending on the source of the stem cells. Stem cell transplants can use cells from your own body (autologous stem cell transplant), or they can use stem cells from donors (allogenic stem cell transplant)…”[/I]
