Combined Blood Stem Cell and Kidney Transplant of One Haplotype Match Living Donor Pairs.

The Stanford Medical Center Program in Multi-Organ Transplantation and the Division of Bone marrow Transplantation are enrolling patients into a research study to determine if donor stem cells given after a living related one Haplotype match kidney transplantation will change the immune system such that immunosuppressive drugs can be completely withdrawn.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
