"The success level is around 90 percent," the National Cancer Prevention Committee (KPKN) deputy chief dr. Sonar S. Panigoro in a public discussion this week.

However, the treatment is quite expensive. Moreover, only few hospitals in Indonesia can do the treatment.

Stem cell transplant is conducted by replacing damaged stem cells in the bone marrow with healthy stem cells.
