CAR T-cell therapy
We offer an innovative cancer treatment, CAR (chimeric antigen receptors) T-cell therapy, for patients with blood cancer. In this treatment, CAR T-cells are genetically modified to recognize and fight cancer. We are able to administer this therapy to patients with adult lymphoma and acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
This type of therapy is only available at centers where doctors and nurses have been specially trained and meet Foundation for Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) accreditation standards.
Blood and marrow transplant
Blood and marrow transplant (also known as stem cell transplant) helps the body regain the ability to make blood cells after high-dose chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Although these therapies are used to kill blood cancer cells, it also destroys healthy cells. A blood and marrow transplant can help replace what was lost during radiation treatment.
The Sarah Cannon Center for Blood Cancer at TriStar Centennial is part of the Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Network. This is one of the world's largest providers of blood and marrow transplants. Along with The Children's Hospital at TriStar Centennial, our program has performed more than 500 blood and marrow transplants for both adult and pediatric patients.
