The Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Center has a 12-bed inpatient department. These life-giving rooms are under the constant protection of a special HEPA filter ventilation system. In technical terms, the BMT Center are supported by a Therapeutic Apheresis Center, and a Stem Cell Freezing and Storage Unit, operating under the most advanced methodologies. Serving both domestic and international patients, the Center aims to perform transplant procedures and follow-up care for approximately 150 patients.
Bone Marrow Transplants we apply:
- Autologous (Transplanted from the patient him, or herself)
- Allogeneic (Transplanted from a sibling, parent, or unrelated donor)
- Haploidentical (Semi-identical; parent, or sibling)
- Unrelated (From a donor who is genetically unrelated to the recipient)
Both autologous (from the patient him or herself) and allogeneic (from siblings, parents or from unrelated donors) transplant procedure types are carried out at the Liv Hospital Ankara BMT Center. In terms of tissue group, the aim is to treat every candidate recipient by means of allogeneic transplant from identical and semi-identical (haploidentical) donors as well as unrelated donors. In unrelated donor cases, the most suitable donors are efficiently identified by contacting Bone Marrow Banks in Turkey and abroad. Stem cells are sourced from bone marrow, peripheral blood and umbilical cord blood.
Diseases Successfully Treatable With Stem Cell Transplants:
- Leukemia (AML, ALL, blood cancers such as CML)
- Multiple Myeloma
- Aplastic Anemia
- Myelodysplastic Syndrome
- Solid Tumors (Organ cancers such as testicular cancer and Ewing’s sarcoma)
- Immune Deficiencies
- Certain Metabolic Diseases
Our Advanced Applications:
The most advanced technology (immunomagnetic cell separation) is used at the Center to facilitate NK cell separation by CD34 + cell collection, and the reduction of CD3, CD19 T and B cells, according to the transplant’s particular features. In addition, post-transplant Donor Lymphocyte Infusion (DLI) and Mesenchymal Stem Cell Infusion treatments are performed at the Center in line with GMP standards and in close coordination and cooperation with the LIV MedCell Regenerative Medicine Center Ulus.
