stem cell rescue

A method of replacing immature blood-forming cells that were destroyed by treatment with anticancer drugs. The stem cells help the bone marrow recover and make healthy blood cells. Stem cell rescue is usually done using the patient’s own stem cells that were saved before treatment.
