Outstanding thalassemia cure rates

Since we started in July 2018, Dr Deepa Trivedi and her team of doctors and nurses at the Sankalp-Cure2Children BMT center in CIMS Hospital, Ahmedabad-India, have performed 154 bone marrow transplants in children up to 16 years of age with thalassemia. The overall cure rate with improved health-related quality of life is 90%  with a 4% mortality rate; 22 of these transplants were done using a partially matched (haploidentical) family donor (see FAQs), 85% of whom are doing well.

This outstanding result is even more impressive considering that it was obtained at an average cost per transplant in the 15.000 US$ range, see blog article. Cure2Children is very proud of working with such a team of Doctors and Nurses as well as with the Sankalp India Foundation.
