Georgia Universities Join NIH-funded National Study of Bone Marrow Transplant for SCD
The Medical College of Georgia (MCG) and Augusta University Health (AU Health) have joined the first large, national clinical trial investigating bone marrow transplantation as part of the standard of care (SoC) for patients with sickle cell disease (SCD).
The National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded study will conduct bone marrow transplants in patients who have high-risk SCD and who have a compatible bone marrow donor (typically a sibling, but it also can be an unrelated donor), and follow patients for whom a compatible donor wasn’t found, while giving them SoC treatment.
