An allogeneic transplant is a type of stem cell transplant that involves using stem cells from a donor to replace the diseased or damaged bone marrow of a patient. The donor is typically a close relative or someone with a closely matched tissue type. The goal of an allogeneic transplant is to give the patient new, healthy stem cells that can create new blood cells and rebuild their immune system.
Allogeneic transplants are typically used to treat conditions such as leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood disorders. They may also be used to treat other types of cancer, such as multiple myeloma, or to replace a patient's bone marrow after high-dose chemotherapy or radiation therapy. In some cases, allogeneic transplants may be used as part of a clinical trial for the treatment of other conditions.
The allogeneic transplant process involves several steps. First, the patient undergoes a conditioning regimen of high-dose chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy to destroy their diseased bone marrow and make room for the donor's stem cells. The patient is then given the donor's stem cells through an IV infusion.
After the transplant, the patient is closely monitored for any complications, such as infections, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), or other side effects. GVHD occurs when the donor's immune system attacks the patient's body, and can cause skin rashes, digestive issues, and other problems.
