Children Liver Transplant in India, Liver Transplant In India, Liver Transplant At Manipal Hospital, 8 out of the 27 BMTs have been allogeneic transplants and the remaining 19 are autologous transplants. Allogeneic transplants require more expertise as they are much more challenging transplants. Here stem cells are taken from a donor (the donor is usually a sibling) who is fully matched for their HLA antigens. The autologous transplants use the stem cells from the patient himself.

Bone Marrow Transplants are done when the patient suffers from blood disorders (cancerous and benign) and other solid tumors.

Allogeneic transplants have been done at Manipal Hospital for diseases like Anemia and Thalessemia which are non cancerous or benign blood disorders and Acute Myeloid Leukemia which is a type of blood cancer. Out of the 8 allogeneic transplants that were done, 5 transplants were done for children and the youngest child was only 3.5 years of age.

The autologous BMT that were done at Manipal Hospital include adults with Multiple Myeloma and Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) which are types of blood cancer. Children with solid tumors like Neuroblastoma and Ewing's Sarcoma have also been transplanted at Manipal hospital.

Manipal has conducted the BMT program successfully and the results have been at par with any of the best centers in the world. The long term objective of this collaboration is to enable Manipal Hospital to step up to the next level of conducting Umbilical cord blood and unrelated donor transplants successfully in future.
