In 1956 the first bone marrow transplant was performed by E. Donnell Thomas in Cooperstown, New York. The first successful bone marrow transplant was performed by Dr. Robert Good for a patient with severe combined immunodeficiency syndrome. From a rarely performed procedure, now more than 10,000 transplants are performed yearly in the United States as treatment for more than 70 life-threatening illnesses including cancers, genetic disorders, and other diseases.
This symposium will focus on hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from different sources as first line treatment for a variety of malignant or non malignant disorders. Speakers will discuss bridging initial treatment to transplant, barriers to transplantation and current advances in the field.
