About Us

The National Kidney and Transplant Institute pioneered stem cell transplantation in the country in 1990. The first bone marrow transplant was performed in a 19 year old male suffering from Severe Aplastic Anemia. A pediatric transplant was performed in 1999 involving a 2 ½ month old baby boy with severe combined Immune Deficiency. The Institute is also capable of performing peripheral blood stem cell transplant and the first transplant was performed in 2001.

Blood and marrow transplantation is a procedure that gives hopes of prolonged survival and cure for patients suffering from a wide range of diseases that include the following:

  • Acute Lymphocytic and Myelogenous Leukemias

  • Chronic Lymphocytic and Myelogenous Leukemias

  • Aplastic Anemia

  • Myelodysplastic Syndrome

  • Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

  • Multiple Myeloma

  • Thalassemia

  • Congenital Immune Deficiency States

  • Inborn errors of metabolism

  • Selected solid tumors


The NKTI Stem Cell Transplantation Program offers allogeneic transplants using bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells. A room equipped with HEPA-air filter is available to provide the special needs of stem cell transplant patients. Patients evaluated for transplant receive consultations by both transplant and other specialty physicians to ensure the best of care. Special laboratory procedures unique to the transplant setting are also available.
