autologous stem cell transplantation

autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT)

a treatment for advanced or refractory solid tumors, such as neuroblastomas, lymphomas, and Ewing's sarcoma. Stem cells from the bone marrow or blood are withdrawn before high-dose irradiation or chemotherapy that destroys many of the remaining cells; afterwards the removed cells are reinfused to form a new population of blood cells.
