High dose chemo with bone marrow (stem cell) transplant

Has anyone had experience or read anything about treating UPSC with high dose chemo and bone marrow (stem cell) transplant? A friend was telling me that somebody she knows had this for recurrent, metatastic, resistant Ovarian and it worked.

I think it's a harsh and horrible treatment but she got through it.

I can' find anything suggesting this treatment can be used with UPSC but it is my understanding that both cancers can behave similarly??
