Cost of a bone marrow transplant

Bone marrow transplant (BMT) is a method of treating hematologic and autoimmune pathologies, which involves administering a healthy bone marrow to the patient. BMT is a remedy for people of all ages suffering from blood cancer - leukemia, aplastic anemia, sickle cell disease, variants of lymphoma, myeloma and immune deficiency.

The human bone marrow consists of pluripotent stem cells that are the predecessors of blood cells. Lifeblood is composed of leukocytes, erythrocytes and platelets. Leukocytes protect our organism from infectious agents, erythrocytes transport oxygen, and platelets control blood coagulation. In case of a bone marrow malfunction, the number of stem cells either increases, which leads to leukemia, or reduces - develops aplastic anemia. Urgent bone marrow transplant (or hematopoietic cell transplantation) is the main option for the patient’s convalescence.

Before the procedure, the patient's pathogenic stem cells are being destroyed by chemotherapy courses or radiation sessions. After organ transplant is accomplished the successfully transplanted pluripotent cells gradually begin to give rise to healthful blood cells.

There are 3 types of bone marrow transplants:

  • autologous - when a person receives his(her) own hematopoietic cells as transplant; this type is used mainly in patients with malignancies that do not affect the bone marrow;
  • allogeneic from a related donor - BMT with the use of a bone marrow from a relative donor;
  • allogeneic from an unrelated donor - bone marrow is taken from the Bank of Donors. Special blood analyzes can accurately determine histocompatibility of a donator and recipient.

The following factors shape the cost of bone marrow transplants:

  • The type of illness that requires a transplant;
  • Stage of disease in a patient;
  • Presence of comorbidities and complications;
  • The opted form of BMT;
  • Pricing policy of the clinics, where the manipulation is performed.

Where is better to carry out transplant?

Patients are often concerned about what country, which clinic is better to carry out a bone marrow transplant. There is no definite answer, because the selection of the hospital is affected by a number of circumstances. Today 5 leading clinics for BMT can be identified. These are the greatest medical centers of Germany, Turkey, India, Israel and the United States.

"When we select the clinic for bone marrow transplant, we pay special attention to the selection of the physicians and grade of medicine in general. We appeal to those entities that cooperate with the World Bank of Donors, and choose those professionals in this medical field that we are 100% sure about. In addition, we consider the hospital level of service, because BMT demands strict adherence to hygiene and sanitation measures."
