Autologous Transplant

  • What is an Autologous Transplant?

    An autologous transplant is stem cell transplant that uses your own cells, which means you are your own donor. In this type of transplant, your stem cells are harvested (removed), frozen and stored before receiving high doses of radiation therapy, or chemotherapy, or both. After you receive your high dose cancer treatment to remove cancerous cells from your marrow, your stem cells are thawed and returned back into you. This is known as a “rescue” transplant.

  • Autologous transplant is a type of stem cell transplant used to treat:

    • Lymphomas
    • Acute myeloid leukaemia
    • Multiple myeloma and other cancers


    • You are getting your own cells, so there is no risk that your immune system will reject the transplant or the transplanted cells will attack your own body.


    • Cancer cells may be harvested along with the stem cells and then reinfused back into the body. To minimise risk, doctors may treat the cells first with anti-cancer drugs or other therapies to reduce the number of cancerous cells that may be present.
