Stem Cell Donation

How does a stem cell donation work?

Peripheral stem cell donation

Peripheral blood stem cell collection is safe and the most commonly used donation method today. Prior to the blood stem cell collection, the donor receives a daily injection of G-CSF for five consecutive days, to mobilize and build up the number of stem cells in the circulating bloodstream. G-CSF increases the number of stem cells in the peripheral blood, which are then obtained directly from the blood using a special procedure. The process is similar to a blood platelet donation that takes approximately four hours to complete. PBSC collection method
