Description

In the year 1980 the Division of Immunotherapy was founded in the K. Dłuski Hospital (built in XIX century). Professor Andrzej Lange, MD organized and headed the division as well as the Laboratory of Clinical Immunology in the Institute of Immunology and Exp Therapy of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Wrocław  In rather difficult environment we organized the ward for marrow transplanted patients and hematology division. The laboratory is well suited for cytometric and genetic work. Immunology division is leading in European in providing for 35 years immunoglobulins to the patients.

Our study on the biology of the marrow cells brought our interest to the field of regenerative medicine.  It was in the year  2003 when the first revascularization attempt was undertaken in the patients with critical limb ischemia.

LSCCT worked out the novel approach to regenerate the immune system raddled fighting leukemia. Having in use the optimal genetic technology we can offer the patients a complex treatment hitting  the cancer cells.

We are proud to have pioneered:

  • the use of high-dose chemotherapy with autolHSCT in lung cancer patients (1987), the approach evolving further to triple transplantation performed consecutively;
  • the use of high-dose chemotherapy with autologous transplantation in ovarian cancer patients;
  • the use of mobilized peripheral blood cells in the allogeneic setting;
  • counter-flow centrifugation employing technique was successfully used in haploidentical transplantations;
  • the use of reduced intensity conditioning lacking irradiation in allogeneic transplantation in Fanconi’s anaemia patients;
  • the use of transplantation in children with the Cernunnos syndrome.

Our activity extends to 22 countries providing haematological treatment and matching donors for Polish recipients and vice-versa. Marrow transplantation was performed in a number of patients from Lithuania and Ukraine.
