Pioneers in Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Transplantation

The Duke Division of Hematological Malignancies and Cellular Therapy pioneers the very latest and most promising approaches to bone marrow and stem cell transplantation.

Close collaboration between scientists and clinicians gives patients early access to many of these treatments, which is of special importance to patients with refractory or recurrent malignancies.

These new approaches include:

  • Bone marrow transplant with less intense chemotherapy regimens
  • Tandem transplants (sequential transplants)
  • Pharmacological manipulation and selection of donor cells
  • The use of partially matched cord blood or haplo-identical stem cells
  • Bone marrow transplants that do double duty as cancer vaccines
  • The use of bone marrow transplant to stabilize or reverse non-cancerous diseases such as scleroderma, lupus, and multiple sclerosis

Basic Research

Projects include development of new therapies and study of the mechanisms behind graft-versus-host disease.

Clinical Research

Duke has shown that partially matched cord blood or haplo-identical stem cells can enable most patients (not just those with a matched sibling) to benefit from transplantation.
