Extensive Therapy Options for Fanconi Anemia
The Fanconi Anemia Comprehensive Care Center at Cincinnati Children’s offers a range of therapies, including innovative approaches that are not widely available. These include:
- Hormone studies − Most children with Fanconi anemia have hormonal abnormalities, especially with the thyroid. We provide detailed evaluations and treatments for such problems, and we also have studies aimed at improving treatments.
- Blood and marrow transplantation − We are leading the way in providing new and better regimens for this vital procedure.
- Innovative, investigational therapies to promote or improve marrow function
- Studies of immune function and infection in Fanconi anemia
Blood and Marrow Transplant
The majority of Fanconi anemia patients eventually require a bone marrow transplant. The procedure is complex, especially for children with Fanconi anemia.
That’s why it’s important to choose a facility and medical team with experience in performing transplants on patients with this condition. Our team is always available to consult with families and their physicians by phone or email.
