Hematopoietic, bone marrow or peripheral blood, stem cell transplants are an important part of care for
cancer patients. These transplants are available at CCCL in collaboration with the transplant unit at
the American University of Beirut Medical center (AUBMC).
AUBMC has a state of the art transplant unit
that was opened 8 years ago. All the unit staff were trained in the US and/or Italy and are highly competent.
Until December 2011, 34 autologous transplants costing US$ 20-30,000 each, and 19 allogeneic transplants
costing US$ 75-100,000 were performed.
