Division of Therapeutic Immunology (TIM)

Denna sida på svenska

TIM is dedicated to advance and to set new trends in biological therapy with the aim to assist the center for allogeneic stem cell transplantation (CAST).

CAST is Scandinavias premier center for allogeneic stem cell transplantation and represents the clinical core of TIM. Current clinical challenges in the context of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (aHSCT) are

  • Insufficient reconstitution of the immune system after transplantation
  • Relapse of the underlying (malignant) disease
  • Graft versus host disease
  • Increased risk for infections

Of particular importance is the creation of a comprehensive clinically oriented, case report series, which will involve several medical disciplines (based on the individual case history)  associated with the discussion of diagnosis, pathology, molecular mechanisms and treatment modalities.

Clinical Meetings

Each Thursday at 13.00 CAST holds a clinical / translational meeting at F79 (library). Everybody is invited to join.
