Fairfax Stem Cell Program
Thousands of cancer patients undergo stem cell transplants each year, giving them renewed hope for a longer life.
The Stem Cell Transplant Program at Fairfax offers adult transplant services through a unique partnership between Virginia Cancer Specialists and Inova Fairfax Hospital. The types of transplants the Program offers includes:
- Autologous Transplant – A method by which to safely deliver high-dose chemotherapy. Your own stem cells are harvested prior to chemotherapy and then re-infused after chemotherapy is completed.
Allogeneic Transplant – A method by which high-dose chemotherapy is delivered followed by re-infusion of stem cells from a donor other than yourself.
- Related Donor
- Matched Unrelated Donor (MUD)
- Non-myelobalative/Reduced Intensity Chemotherapy (RIC) – A type of allogeneic transplant which uses a modified or reduced dose of chemotherapy.
