Bone marrow stem cells are collected from the donor either by bone marrow tap (drilling a hole into the marrow cavity and sucking the stem cells out), or less painfully by giving a drug called G-CSF, which causes the stem cells to increase their rate of cell division so that they begin to spill out into the blood stream; this means that they can be harvested from peripheral blood.
