Who is Eligible for a Blood Stem Cell Transplant?

The adult patient’s overall health is carefully scrutinized to make sure they are strong enough to withstand not only the stem cell transplant process, but also the high-dose chemotherapy.

The patient could undergo computed tomography (CT) scans, electrocardiograms (EKG), a bone marrow biopsy and blood tests while being evaluated. Lung, heart, liver and kidney function are also checked in order to determine if the patient is a good candidate for the procedure.
