Stem Cell Transplant Sources and Donors

Stem Cell Transplant Sources and Donors

Stem cells for stem cell transplants at Phoenix Children's Hospital are collected from three primary groups of sources and donors:

  • Autologous: Cells come from the patient.
  • Allogeneic: Cells come from a related or non-related donor.
  • Syngenic: Cells come from an identical twin.

The decision for using a source and the process of harvesting cells from that source occur during the pre-admission phase of the stem cell transplant process.
