Choosing a treatment center with experience, such as our department at Hadassah Hospital, is paramount when considering a bone marrow transplant. Carefully evaluating the disease, the patient and the benefits versus the risks of the procedure allows our expert team of specialist to make the best treatment choice. Hadassah's BMT Program, initiated in 1980, has gained the reputation of being among the leading transplant programs in the country, as well as internationally.
Our skilled and talented medical and supportive personnel develop comprehensive, individualized treatment plans to meet the unique needs of each patient. A team of dedicated physicians, nurses, transplant coordinator, psychologist, social worker, data management, etc., are available to provide support before, during and after transplantation. Adopting a holistic approach to care ensures that our patients, family members, and care partners are adequately addressed. This approach to care has provided us with a high success rate.
Approximately 130 transplantation procedures are carried out yearly for patients with hematological malignancies, solid tumors and a wide spectrum of non-malignant life-threatening diseases, including genetic and metabolic disorders.
Basic and clinical research laboratories include the Baxter-Hadassah Research Center and GMP-like facility, a Cell Processing Center, the Danny Cunniff Leukemia Research Laboratory, and a production facility for synthesis of small molecules for immune regulation and cancer treatment.
The Center’s clinical research focuses on the development of new treatment modalities based on innovative biotechnologies for a range of diseases that may be curable by cellular therapy and/or immunological manipulations. New therapeutic regimens that consist of less intensive chemotherapy and more effective immunotherapy are already being clinically applied. They have proved their ability to reduce short- and long-term toxicity and mortality, and are well-tolerated and relatively safe for patients of all ages.
