There are plans to set up Haematopoietic stem cell harvest and transplantation (HSCT) services in the future. Autologous or Allogenic (Sibling, matched unrelated donor) HSCT are performed for certain haematological malignancies. Stem cells are collected from either autologous or allogenic sources. Some patients with solid tumours may also benefit from HSCT.
