Transplantation Research Program - Stem Cell
The Pediatric Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Program, part of the Siragusa Transplantation Center, advances the field of hematopoietic cell transplantation through clinical and transitional research that provides access to novel treatment strategies to patients undergoing transplant. Two types of studies are being conducted. Supportive care protocols are studies that do not directly treat a patient’s main (transplanted) disease but look at related issues treated at Lurie Children’s, such as complications of transplantation and infection control, while treatment protocols describe how the physicians and staff at Lurie Children’s will treat patients along the entire transplant process.
