Scripps Blood & Marrow Transplant Program
Celebrates 30th Anniversary of Providing Life-Saving Care

SAN DIEGO (May 17, 2010) – The outlook for patients with leukemia and other life-threatening blood cancers has improved dramatically since Scripps Health founded San Diego County’s first blood and marrow transplantation (BMT) program, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2010.

Dr. James Mason, the medical director of Scripps’ BMT program at Scripps Green Hospital, says the survival rate of Scripps’ BMT patients has more than doubled since 1980, and the number of transplants performed annually by Scripps has increased tenfold.

“The field has gone from being viewed as something of a last resort in its early days to now being a viable option where likelihood of recovery is often strong,” Dr. Mason says.  “We’ve become much more adept at matching appropriate donors with patients, developing medications to fight previously lethal infections and creating new techniques to make transplants tolerable for older patients.  We’re also seeing many patients return to productive lives in a matter of weeks or months after transplant, instead of years or not at all.” Read more
