An autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) is a procedure that “rescues” your body with an infusion of healthy blood-forming cells following high-dose chemotherapy. ASCT was formerly known as a bone marrow transplant. Bone marrow is the soft, spongy material in the center of your bones that produces blood cells.
In this type of transplant:
Lahey has offered autologous stem cell transplantation since 1996. Our skill and expertise is matched by the caring and compassion with which we deliver our care. Our goal is to provide you and your family with mental, physical, and emotional support during a very stressful time.
Lahey’s autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) program is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT), an internationally recognized accrediting body for medical institutions that perform stem cell transplants.
This accreditation indicates that Lahey’s ASCT program has met the most rigorous standards for every aspect of stem cell therapy. The inspection process evaluates the clinical care in the hospital and outpatient clinic as well as the collection, processing, storage, and infusion of blood cells, and is a sign of a quality program.
