Cancer Affected Children Benefit from Stem Cells

According to Singapore-based pediatric hematologist-Oncologist consultant Dr. Anselm Chi-wai Lee, stem cell transplant therapy has made the treatment of cancer affected children less complicated.

Dr. Anselm told a press conference over the weekend that “Children with leukemia or other cancers, as well as some severe inherited immunodeficiency diseases and blood disorders, may benefit from a transplant of hematopoietic stem cells commonly known as a bone marrow transplant. The term hematopoietic stem cell transplant acknowledges the fact that the stem cells that are necessary to regenerate blood and immune functions can now be obtained from peripheral or umbilical cord blood as well as from bone marrow.”
