A stem cell trans­plant can offer a poten­ti­al cure for leukemia. Leukemia is also refer­red to as
“blood can­cer.” The­re are many dif­fe­rent types of leukemia, e.g. acu­te lym­pho­cy­tic leukemia
(ALL). The trans­plan­ta­ti­on of stem cells can also be used to tre­at other mali­gnant cancers
such as lym­pho­ma or myelo­ma, and anemia, immun­ode­fi­ci­en­ci­es or cer­tain hereditary
meta­bo­lic dise­a­ses. In many cases, in fact, it is the best pos­si­ble therapy.
