Stem cell issues


The Stem Cell Committee is chaired by Sandro Dallorso and manages any issues relating to the harvesting and reinfusing of blood stem cells. These are collected from patients before they receive 'high dose' chemotherapy and then reinfused after the chemotherapy has been given. The stem cells repopulate the bone marrow and allow it to recover.
