- ** Bone marrow is from the same species (human), such as a cadaver, a close relative, or a non/related donor.
- * Testing is done 2 determine a close genetic match 4 the recipient
* Bone marrow is collected frm the pt, processed, & later transplanted or reinfused into the pt.
STEM CELL HARVESTING:
* Is the coll of stem cells frm the blood sys through a process termed apheresis
- * A needle is placed into the vein in 1 armm of the donor & the blood is removed & filtered in order 2 remove the stem cells.
