City of Hope Doctors Present New Research on Bone Marrow Transplants, Immunotherapy and Other Blood Cancer Treatments

DUARTE, Calif.–()–City of Hope announced today that it will present data on new findings on bone marrow transplants, immunotherapies and other blood cancer treatments at ASH 62nd Annual Meeting and Exposition on Dec. 5 to 8, a virtual event.

City of Hope is addressing some of the hardest-to-treat cancers by accelerating innovative clinical research approaches. The comprehensive cancer center was a pioneer in bone marrow and stem cell transplants — and the transplantation program is now one of the largest and most successful programs of its kind in the U.S. For the 15th year in a row, the Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research has ranked City of Hope as providing exceptional care and strong clinical outcomes for patients who received bone or stem cell transplants; it is the only cancer center to hold this distinction.

During the ASH virtual conference, City of Hope researchers will make presentations on the following and other data:
