Hemant Murthy, MD, Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, Florida, provides a comprehensive overview of the risks and benefits of bone marrow transplant for patients with bone marrow failure disease including aplastic anemia, PNH, MDS and AML. This sessions includes a review of the generalized criteria for eligibility, the potential complications of transplant and long-term outcomes based on ongoing studies. Dr. Murthy also offers hopeful news for older patients who may have thought they were not eligible for transplant but with new treatment protocols may be able to at least consider this option.
