Ex vivo T-cell depletion in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant: past, present and future

The most common cause of post-transplant mortality in patients with hematological malignancy is relapse, followed by GvHD, infections, organ toxicity and second malignancy. Immune-mediated complications such as GvHD continue to be challenging, yet amenable to control through manipulation of the T-cell compartment of the donor graft with subsequent immunomodulation after transplant. However, risk of both relapse and infection increase concomitantly with T-cell depletion (TCD) strategies that impair immune recovery.

AAMDSIF Virtual Film Festival

Over the past few years, several documentaries and dramas about people living with aplastic anemia have been created by independent filmmakers and by patients themselves. These depict the everyday lives of patients coping with a diagnosis, the challenges presented by treatment and the hardship caused by inadequate medical insurance coverage.

Whether fictional movies, or stories about actual patients and families, these portrayals bring you into the world of bone marrow failure disease in an uncompromising and straightforward manner.

Patients

AAMDSIF hosts Patient & Family Conferences around the United States each year. Conferences are free to attend and include presentations by the leading medical experts in rare blood cancers and bone marrow failure diseases. It is also an incredible and important opportunity for patients to connect with one another and share support, answers and hope.
