Childhood Hematology Disorder Treatment
Treatments for blood disorders have come a long way in the past two decades. Diseases that were once fatal are now controllable due to the development of new therapies. Although many blood disorders are chronic diseases, most patients are able to maintain a normal life while living with their disease. Blood disorders may be treated with a combination of several therapies:
- Stem cell transplantation
- Cellular therapies such as blood transfusions and cell growth stimulants
Our Childhood Hematology Disorder Clinical Trials
Treatment for childhood hematology disorders may be offered as part of clinical trials, which are closely monitored studies to test the safety and effectiveness of new treatments. Go to MD Anderson's list of current pediatric clinical trials to see if your child might be eligible.
