A stem cell transplant (sct) offers a way for doctors to use the very high doses of chemo needed for effective treatment. Although the drugs destroy the patient's bone marrow, transplanted stem cells can restore the blood-producing bone marrow stem cells. Stem cells for transplantation are collected from the bone marrow or from the bloodstream (in a process called apheresis). Bone marrow transplant was more common in the past. Now it has been largely replaced by cells taken from the bloodstream. cheap viagra no prescription These blood-forming stem cells can come from either the patient or from a donor whose tissue type closely matches that of the patient. The donor may be a brother or sister or, less often, a person not related to the patient. It's not yet clear how helpful stem cell transplants are in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (cll). When these treatments are used, it is most often in clinical trials looking to test how well they work. The transplant process first, blood-forming stem cells are collected from either the patient or a matched donor. cheap viagra sales The cells are frozen and stored. Patients are then given very high doses of chemo to kill the cancer cells. generic viagra overnight They may also get total body radiation to kill any remaining cancer cells. After treatment, the stored stem cells are given to the patient as a blood transfusion. Then the waiting period begins as the stem cells settle in the patient's bone marrow and start to grow and produce blood cells. generic viagra online next day delivery People who receive a donor's stem cells are given drugs to prevent rejection as well as other medicines as needed to prevent infections. sales viagra Usually within a couple of weeks after the stem cells are infused they begin making new white blood cells. generic viagra price Then they begin making platelets, and finally, red blood cells. Patients having sct have to be kept away from germs (in protective isolation) as much as possible until their white blood cell count is at a safe level. They may be kept in the hospital until the white cell count reaches a certain number, usually around 1,000. Even after they go home, they will be seen in the outpatient clinic almost every day for many months. cheap viagra no prescription "mini-transplants" many patients over the age of 55 can't have a regular transplant that uses high doses of chemo. cheap viagra no prescription Some may be able to have what is called a "mini-transplant" (non-myeloablative transplant or reduced-intensity transplant), where they get lower doses of chemo and radiation that do not destroy the all cells in their bone marrow. They then get the donor stem cells. These cells enter the body and form a new immune system, which sees the leukemia cells as foreign and attacks them (a "graft-versus-leukemia" effect). Many doctors still consider this an experimental treatment in the treatment of cll, and clinical trials are being done to find out how useful it may. To learn more about stem cell transplants, please see the american cancer society document, bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell transplant. Some things to keep in mind stem cell transplantation is a complex treatment. If the doctors think that a person with leukemia might be helped by this treatment, it is important that it be done at a hospital where the staff is experienced with the procedure. Some transplant programs may not have experience in certain transplants, especially those from unrelated donors. Viagra no prescription Stem cell transplantation costs a lot -- more than $100,000. generic prescription viagra It often requires a long hospital stay. Because some insurance companies see it as an experimen. Local CPC offices in the U.S. and Canada
