From April 2017 to December 2019 a total of 98 BMTs have been performed in children with thalassemia with a success rate of 95%. Congratulations to all the Ahmedabad BMT unit team.
BMT for thalassemia as well as for sickle cell disease is offered on a non-profit basis for 12.500 USD when a matched sibling is available or 19.000 USD when a partially matched (haploidentical) donor is required, see article. These costs cover all possible complications up to one year after BMT.
