What is bone marrow?
Bone marrow is a soft tissue rich in nutrients, found in the hollow internal center of our long bones. It is spongy, has a good blood supply, and represents about 4% of our weight. There is about 5 pounds (2.5kg) of bone marrow in the average adult. There are two forms of bone marrow, red and yellow.
What does bone marrow do?
Bone marrow works all day long to manufacture the cells that are found in our bloodstream. The process in which different types of blood cells form from multi-potential stem cells is called hematopoiesis. Multi-potential stem hematopoetic cells in the bone marrow can become any type of cell in the bloodstream including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
Red blood cells transport oxygen from the lungs to all areas of the body. White blood cells fight infection by attacking and destroying bacteria, viruses, yeasts, fungi, and potential parasites of all types. Types of white blood cells include lymphocytes, the bedrock of the immune system, and myeloid cells with the following subtypes: monocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils.
Platelets are the body’s main emergency responders to stop bleeding by making blood clot. They are the final products of another bone marrow cell type called the megakaryocyte. Platelets are formed in the bone marrow by a process known as thrombopoiesis. Inadequate numbers of platelets can cause easy bruising and bleeding and there may also be a risk for internal bleeding from injury.
