    Adult Stem Cell Transplants

    The Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Transplant Program at Dana-Farber/ Brigham and Women's Cancer Center is one of the largest allogeneic stem cell transplant programs in the country and among the largest autologous programs. Our experience with more than 5,000 transplants since 1972 has opened up new avenues of research, targeted treatments, and supportive care approaches designed to reduce transplant complications.

    In Fiscal Year 2009 (October 2008-September 2009), the adult stem cell transplant program completed

    • 235 allogeneic transplants (using stem cells from a donor)
    • 219 autologous transplants (using the patient's own stem cells)
