Sequential Cadaveric Lung and Bone Marrow Transplant for Immune Deficiency Diseases

August 12, 2020

Our organization is conducting a study for patients with primary immunodeficiency and end-stage lung disease. Patients with immunodeficiencies often develop lung complications or infections that make them ineligible for life-saving immunotherapy.

In this study, we are performing a lung transplant as well as a bone marrow transplant from the same donor.

The bone marrow transplant will provide stem cells that should generate a new immune system in the patient, which we expect will resolve the patient’s immunodeficiency and prevent organ rejection.

Initiated by the UPMC Immune Transplant and Therapy Center.
