Welcome to our Patient Information Website
 

Welcome and thank you for visiting Transplant Creations patient information website.
During your visit you will be informed about stem cell  transplantation in general, as treatment for cancer and about reduced intensity conditioning autologous and/or allogeneic hematopoietic progenitor cell  transplantation for treatment of cancer 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 announced.
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.

Reduced intensity 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 transplantation 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 factors.

To accomplish this type of treatment successfully and fight your disease best several critical criteria that are not transplant or disease related will also need to be fulfilled. These include timely diagnosis, timely referral, timely treatment by an experienced team.
