A stem cell transplant can be vital for people with a blood disease, such as leukaemia, or an immune system disorder.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are cells that give rise to new cells, and are found in the bone marrow cavities of our bones. Blood stem cells make cells you can find in your blood: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets (thrombocytes).
