What is the Duke Pediatric Blood
and Marrow Transplant Program?
Since its creation in 1990, the Duke Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT)
Program has transplanted over 1200 children suffering from
cancer, genetic defects or blood disorders. Today, over half of these children
are surviving long-term, cured of their underlying disease by their transplant.
With a current waiting list of 30-40 children, and a referral base that is
world-wide, the Duke Pediatric BMT Program is the largest children’s
transplant program in the world, now transplanting some 100 children
annually. It is a program of last resort: These children have a life expectancy
of less than one year without a transplant.
