This is the intravenous infusion of haematopoietic progenitor cells to re-establish marrow function in a patient with damaged or defective bone marrow.

There are two main types:

  • allogeneic - including syngeneic
  • autologous

The bone marrow is usually harvested from the posterior iliac crest by repeated aspirations. Alternative sites are the anterior iliac crest and the sternum.
