Radio Therapy AKA radiation therapy helps to destroy and stop the spread of cancer cells or cancerous tumours.
Known to be a curative and palliative treatment, the type of radiotherapy is determined on the location, size and stage of cancer in the patient.
Autologous & allogeneic transplant
In an Allogeneic transplant, healthy stem cells are extracted from a donor after conducting various tests to ensure there is a match. This donor could be a family member or an unknown person.
In the case of Autologous transplant, the healthy stem cells are extracted from the patient before he/she undergoes any treatment. Liquid Nitrogen is used to freeze the stem cells and then injected back into the patient’s body post the treatment.
