Children with Cancer: The Quality of Life

By Christine Eiser | Go to book overview

Glossary

Allogeneic: A graft or tissue from someone other than the patient; usually a matched sibling (a brother or a sister) but may be a matched unrelated volunteer donor.

Bone Marrow Aspiration (BMA): The removal of the marrow from the cavities of the bones by suction.

Autologous: A graft or tissue from the same source; that is, taken from the patient and then returned to the patient.

Bone Marrow: A soft sponge-like material in the center or cavities of the bones that produces blood cells.

Chemotherapy: Drugs stop cancer cells from growing. Chemotherapy can be given in different ways, either by mouth or by an injection into the blood stream through the Hickman line or Portacath.

Clinical Trials: Research studies to find ways to improve health and cancer care. Studies are conducted to find out whether promising approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment are safe and effective.

EMLA Cream: A topical anesthetic, or cream that numbs the skin and decreases the sensation of pain.

Hickman Line or a Portacath: A narrow plastic tube through which blood samples can easily be taken. This avoids the need for repeated blood tests using a vein in the arm. Drugs and transfusions can also be given through the line. It is inserted into a major blood vessel in the chest.

Immunosuppression: Reduction of the functions of the immune system to prevent a reaction against donor marrow and to prevent graft-versus-host disease.
