Autologous Stem Cell Program

Just as chemotherapy reduces a malignancy, the toxicity of chemotherapeutic agents can diminish the production and damage healthy cells, including the bone marrow stem cells, which give rise to normal circulating blood cells.

Winthrop´┐Żs Autologous Stem Cell Transplant Program, offered either on an inpatient or outpatient basis, involves the removal of stem cells prior to the administration of extremely high doses of chemotherapy. Stem cells are known as "grandfather" cells because they have yet to differentiate into the many types of cells that make up the human body. After treatment, the patient's stem cells are reinfused into the body where they regenerate healthy bone marrow.

With this program, patients with a wide variety of conditions have a better chance of recovery.
