Definitions for "Apheresis"
An operation by which any part is separated from the rest.
The process by which stem cells are collected from blood. The cells are removed from a large intravenous needle, or most commonly, through a large central venous catheter. The donor's blood then passes through a machine to remove the white blood cells that contain stem cells. The rest of the blood returns to the donor. The body replaces donated stem cells in 2-3 weeks.
Removal of blood from a donor's body, separation of a blood component (as plasma or white blood cells), and transfusion of the remaining blood components back into the donor.
