Bone Marrow Transplant Tests
The first step in the transplant process is a comprehensive evaluation by your bone marrow transplant team to determine which transplant procedure is best for you. The process involves many tests to ensure it is safe for you to have the transplant.
Blood will be drawn to evaluate your past exposure to certain viruses and to check your organ function. These tests will help us treat you before and after your transplant.
Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Typing
We search for stem cell donor matches based on your HLA typing. This blood test will be repeated at our lab even if it was done previously at your local doctor’s office. It is our responsibility to verify your typing. Any potential donors will also have HLA typing compared with yours to see if they are a suitable match.
Evaluates the pumping ability of your heart. An instrument that transmits high-frequency sound waves called a transducer is placed on your ribs near the breastbone. It picks up the echoes of the sound waves and transmits them as electrical impulses. The impulses are converted into moving pictures of the heart.
Evaluates your lung function and measures different capacities of your lungs.
CT, MRI, and PET scans create images that are similar to X-rays but use computers to produce pictures of the area being evaluated.
Bone Marrow Biopsy and Aspirate
A small sample of bone marrow is taken from the back of the hips and studied to determine how well your bone marrow produces cells. It also is evaluated for signs of disease in the marrow.
Bone Marrow Transplant Process

They meet regularly to discuss your care, collect opinions, and offer the best recommendations for your needs. Your transplant coordinator will facilitate the appointments and coordinate your care. We also assist you in finding nearby housing during your weeks-long treatment and help you navigate through any financial and insurance concerns.
Donor Search, Obtaining Cells
If you are receiving a transplant from a donor, a search to identify a donor will take place on your behalf with immediate family members. Arrangements will be made for the cells to be harvested. If you are receiving an autologous transplant, your stem cells will be harvested and frozen for your use after your conditioning regimen.
Chemotherapy alone or with radiation therapy kills any cancer cells in your body. This conditioning regimen also makes room in your bone marrow for the transplanted cells to grow. You receive your stem cell transplant after you complete the conditioning regimen. The transplanted cells enter your bloodstream in a method similar to a blood transfusion.
