Stem Cell Transplant Chapter

Event Description

Many myeloma patients receive autologous stem cell transplants as part of their treatment care. In other cancers, allogenic transplants (stem cells donated from a genetically similar person) is more common. Are there any cases of myeloma in which an allo transplant would be used? Is it effective? Why are they not used as often in myeloma care?

Audrey joined the HealthTree Foundation as the Myeloma Community Program Director in 2020. While not knowing much about myeloma at the start, she has since worked hard to educate herself, empathize and learn from others' experiences. She loves this job. Audrey is passionate about serving others, loves learning, and enjoys a nice mug of hot chocolate no matter the weather.

Dr. Matthew Fero

Dr. Fero's research interest is focused on the development of novel therapeutic agents for the treatment of hematological malignancies. Towards this aim, he is serving in three different leadership positions: 1) Director of the UNM Bone Marrow Transplant and Cell Therapy Program, which has brought autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant technology to New Mexico, with the intent of introducing allogeneic stem cell transplant and both CAR-T therapy in the near future. Their program is currently undergoing FACT accreditation to further this aim. 2) He is the leader of the Hematology Clinical Working Group, a committee which reviews and prioritizes all clinical trials for hematological malignancies at UNM and affiliate NCORP community sites. 3) His laboratory uses preclinical models to identify novel therapeutic targets for hematological malignancies, and to test the therapeutic efficacy of novel agents. They have expertise in both the development of novel targeted and transgenic mice, as well as human tumor xenograft models to elucidate the oncogenic interactions of genes and carcinogenic compounds, in order to understand their potential risks and pathogenic mechanisms.
