Welcome to the Department of Stem Cell Transplantation.
The UKE stem cell program for adults, under the leadership of Professor Dr. Nicolaus Kröger, is since many years one of the largest in Europe. We exceed a high international standard of Quality (JACIE Accreditation) and are world leaders in the field of stem cell transplantation for myelofibrosis, which we also successfully perform in elderly patients (70+). We chair several multicenter European studies on allogeneic stem cell transplantation.
The entire treatment program focuses on the development of more effective strategies in the treatment against leukemia and lymphoma. We employ the latest cellular immunotherapy and gene therapy approaches.
Our areas of clinical focus are
Allogeneic stem cell transplantation offers the greatest chance of curing leukemia, but it is also the therapy with the highest risk. It is therefore usually used only when there are no other options for a cure or when the chances of cure by allogeneic stem cell transplantation are significantly higher than for other treatment options. Allogeneic stem cell transplantation will only be recommended to you after careful consideration of all possibilities and risks according to the individual course of your disease.
Below are some facts about our clinic:
Each year we have performed over 200 transplants, overall more than 3,500 allogeneic transplants . This makes use one of the largest centers for allogeneic stem cell transplantation in Europe.
To make your stay as pleasant as possible, we offer:
We offer inpatients 25 beds with and without HEPA filtration on the transplantation ward. All BMT rooms are spatially separated from the rest of the hospital.
We offer outpatients four examination rooms and four treatment rooms for infusions and blood transfusions.
