The Enduring Promise of Cord Blood:
Dr. Koen van Besien
Blood and Marrow Transplant Division Chief,
Seidman Cancer Center at University Hospital
With an established reputation for clinical research and care, Dr. van Besien has made numerous contributions to the field of cellular therapy and stem cell transplantation. Most recently, he has focused on methods to extend the use of transplantation to more patients in need. His group has recently reported the first successful transplant for a patient with HIV and leukemia using a haplo-cord graft - a unique procedure developed by his team. The patient remains free of HIV and leukemia more than four years after transplant.
Share the Science and sharing his valuable insight
on the use of haplo-cord blood transplants in the treatment of HIV, leukemia and more.
We also wish to also thank our generous sponsor and partner for this event,
WellSky Health, who continue to support cord blood
education through our “Share the Science” series.
