Hosts Tim Cripe and Brenda Weigel welcome Dr. Chris Dandoy, from Cincinnati Children's Hospital, and parent advocate, Sarah Moore, to discuss the current research on TA-TMA and the implications for children undergoing stem cell transplant (SCT) for pediatric cancers, notably tandem SCTs for high-risk neuroblastoma.
Dr. Dandoy is Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics in Bone Marrow Transplantation and Immune Deficiency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and this episode discussion focused on four recently published papers by Dr. Dandoy describing effects, incidence, risk factors, screening, and treatment of this serious complication of transplants. Sarah Moore also shared her perspective as a mother to a child who recently underwent tandem SCT for high-risk neuroblastoma, and has been active in parent forums discussing the incidence and implications of TA-TMA and sharing evidence-based information.
