Department of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology

Study, understand, and treat –that is the motto of the department headed by Professor Prof. Dr. med. Angelika Eggert guiding their care for children and adolescents suffering from cancer or non-malignant hematopoietic system disorders. The department’s Zentrum für hämatopoetische Stammzelltransplantationen for children is a highlight, ranked among the excellence centers in this field both nationally and internationally.

Its specializations include:

  • Adoptive T-cell transplantations / Infection management after transplantation
  • Allogeneic stem cell transplants of HLA identical and –different family members
  • Allogeneic transplants of HLA compatible, unrelated donors
  • Autologous transplants
  • Donor lymphocyte preparations, mesenchymalic stem cells
  • Hematopoietic disorders and immune system disorders
  • Immunotherapy for tumors and other indications
  • Stem cell sources with bone marrow cells, transplantation of peripheral blood stem cells and of umbilical blood stem cells
  • Therapies for congenital and acquired anemias
  • Transplant preparations: Separation and expansion of stem cells, tumor cell purging

The department’s expanded service spectrum includes inter alia therapy for:

  • Acute lymphoblast leukemia (regressive leukemia)
  • Benign and malignant tumors
  • Congenital or acquired hematopoietic disorders and blood coagulation disorders (sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, hemophilia)
  • Fanconi anemia
  • Immune deficiency disorders
  • Malignant disorders of the hemapoietic system
  • Neuroblastomas
  • Neurometabolic disorders (e.g. adrenoleukodystrophy)

 

The interdisciplinary cooperation in diagnostics, therapy, prognosis and rehabilitation in weekly pediatric-neurooncological conferences constantly improves the treatment and understanding of the mechanisms driving the disorders. Some 100 children and adolescents benefit annually from the cancer treatment in the department. All medical procedures are scientifically verified and are subject to constant quality controls.
