Welcome to the BMTInfonet Drug Database

This guide lists many of the drugs bone marrow, stem cell and cord blood transplants patients receive during treatment. It explains why they are used and some, but not all, of the possible side effects.

This guide should not be used as a substitute for a detailed discussion with your doctor and pharmacist about drugs you are being given. If you experience any side effect after taking the drug, even if they are not noted below, consult your doctor immediately.

Some of the drugs in this guide are also used outside the transplant setting. The descriptions of the drugs in this guide pertain only to their use in bone marrow, stem cell or cord blood transplantation.

If you are searching for a drug used by transplant patients and survivors that is not in this database, please contact us at drugdata@bmtinfonet.org.

This database was compiled under the direction of pharmacists knowledgeable about transplantation, but should not be construed as medical advice. Consult your doctor for information about how each drug might affect you.
