DKMS further expands support for patients in India
In its efforts to increase the access to transplantation for blood cancer and blood disorder patients in low- and middle-income countries, DKMS has provided funding for four single rooms specifically designed for patients undergoing stem cell transplantation. The rooms are part of the newly built bone marrow transplant (BMT) units of the non-profit Christian Medical College (CMC) Vellore and its recently inaugurated Ranipet Campus in Southern India. With the new campus, CMC has substantially expanded its treatment capacity from previously 18 rooms to 29 rooms today. Further, DKMS contributes to the treatment costs for stem cell transplants for up to 100 patients in need.
