The Bone Marrow Transplantation Program at Cincinnati Children’s is one of the largest in the country and an international leader in the development of new transplant regimens for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and myelodysplasia.
Our team has performed more than 2,000 bone marrow transplants, making us one of the most experienced pediatric transplant programs in the world. Our specialists have developed transplant procedures that are now the standard of care in 240 cancer centers throughout North America. Currently, we perform transplants on more than 100 children a year, with a 96 percent survival rate − significantly higher than the national average.
Our bone marrow transplantation team specializes in innovative approaches to transplant therapy. The team:
- Has extensive experience in performing complex stem cell transplants from unrelated donors
- Utilizes reduced-intensity preparative regimens, which offer lower doses of chemotherapy with the potential for fewer side effects
- Pioneered new applications for bone marrow transplant, such as transplant for autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome
