Types of Stem Cell Transplants

There are three types of transplant, based on donor source.

  • Autologous
    You are your own donor.
  • Allogeneic Stem cells are donated by another individual. The donor may be a sibling, other family member or an unrelated individual.
  • Syngeneic
    The donor is your identical twin.

The type of transplant that is best for you will depend on your disease, the availability of a matched donor, your age and your general health status.
