Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant
MUSC Health's Pediatric Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Program is the only one in South Carolina. MUSC Children's Hospital provides specialized care for pediatric patients and is certified by the Foundation for the accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT). Our excellent standard of care and innovative therapeutic options offer hope to children throughout the state and Southeast.
We have cutting-edge clinical trials through the Children's Oncology Group (COG), the Blood and Marrow Transplant Consorium Clinical Trials Network (BMT-CTN), the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium (PBMTC), as well as other specialized investigator-initiated trials.
We offer all types of transplant options, including autologous transplants and allogeneic transplants with matched related donors, matched and mismatched unrelated donors, umbilical cord blood, or haploidentical donors. We also offer gene therapy for select diseases.
Our Pediatric Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant program provides the potential for curative therapy for a broad range of diseases, including:
- Aplastic anemia
- Sickle cell anemia
- Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes
- Brain tumors
- Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis
Excellent support resources - Our multidisciplinary team includes coordinators, social workers and child life specialists who support the children and their families emotionally throughout the transplant process.
Innovative treatments - New treatment protocols are being developed rapidly, and Hollings' pediatric program is at the forefront of bringing these new techniques to our patients.
State-of-the-art facilities - Our pediatric inpatient unit is technologically advanced, with six rooms designed for immunosuppressed patients. These new rooms use the same sophisticated air filtration and pressure system found in our operating rooms.
