Stem Cell Transplant for Thalassemia

Stem Cell Transplantation for Thalassemia

If you (or someone you know) is between the ages of 16-65 years have been diagnosed with thalassemia, you may be eligible for a stem cell transplantation procedure at the Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Under evaluation is the use of low-dose radiation and novel methods of transplant preparation and post-transplant therapy to reduce the risk of graft-versus-host disease.

You must have an HLA-matched family member to participate. We will do the blood testing free of charge to see if your family member is a match. We pay for all medical costs related to the transplant procedure. You must be available to live near NIH for approximately four months. We also provide a small daily allowance to help with living expenses while you are on the study and living away from home.
