Overview

UCI Health Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center is expanding treatment options for cancers of the blood or lymph systems with the launch of Orange County's first adult bone marrow transplant program. Patients with diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma now can benefit from life-saving infusions of healthy blood stem cells. Called the Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program, it also opens the way to emerging immunotherapy options, such as CAR T-cell therapy, for patients with many types of cancer. Our internationally recognized stem-cell transplant experts also provide full pre-and-post transplant follow-up, allowing patients to receive high-quality, seamless care close to home. And as Orange County's only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, our patients also have access to early-phase clinical trials and advanced therapies before they are available elsewhere.

This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 2020 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since December 2023.

Attending physicians

Adult - Stephan Ciurea, Deepa Jeyakumar, Piyanuch Kongtim, Richard Van Etten

Transplants performed

Marrow/PBSC only

Cord blood transplants performed on

Not performed

Other programs and services

UCI Health also has a growing number of cellular therapy clinical trials for patients with hematological malignancies and solid tumors. Among the most promising is CAR T-cell therapy, an innovative treatment for certain blood cancers that is also being studied as a treatment for other cancer types.
