as part of initial therapy.
Our program was started in 2000 for metastatic
breast cancer and expanded in 2005 to lymph node positive breast
cancer; in 2007 a program for stage II-III breast cancer was
In 2002 the program was also expanded to leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma or Kahler's
disease and neuroblastoma. In 2012 we dedicated time to develop an
integratable disease option for multiple myeloma.
conditioning transplants are
transplants with cells from bone marrow, peripheral blood or cord
blood, that are characterized by preparative (conditioning) regimens and transplant
procedures which are more patient friendly and contain better
quality of life during treatment than conventional high dose or myeloablative transplants.
Stem cells for hematopoietic cell
can be derived from your own (autologous) bone marrow or from the
bone marrow of a donor (allogeneic). Stem cells from bone marrow can
be mobilized into the peripheral blood by chemotherapy and/or growth
