Treatment Options: Clinical Trials

Being accepted to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center means that Tami may have the option to participate in a clinical trial for those suffering from MDS. At this time I have no idea if this is something her doctors are considering but thought it was worth noting since she will be in one of the finest research hospitals in the country.

A clinical trial will be of significant benefit if the national registry doesn't have a bone marrow match for her and if we are unable to locate one quickly.

The clinical trials at the Hutch should give anyone who is eligible to participate, hope that an alternative treatment will be available to them if a traditional marrow match cannot be found.
